Today’s card is a mix of FunFold, Beautiful Paper, and an easy Wow factor.  It all begins with the Expressions In Ink and Artistically Inked products.

Paper

Choosing which product is the star of this card was difficult , the paper or the stamps.  Since the paper has been purchased the most over the last year, I will say that is the winner.  It is the Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper.  I have used two different pieces of the gorgeous pack of papers.

First is the Gold Striped piece.  It is on the front and on the right edge of the back layer.  To say it is pretty is very lacking.  And the best piece is what I have just barely peeking from behind the center flower.   A  marble look with pink and yellow flowers and veins of gold could not be prettier.  This fabulous DSP is paired with Pale Papaya. Which works wonderfully with the gold and the brightness of the pinks.

Stamps and Dies

Artistically Inked is the name of this gorgeous bundle.  The flower in the center of the card is stamped and die cut using Pale Papaya Ink as well as Pear Pizzaz.  There are a variety of colors in the paper to choose from, but these were the ones I chose for this card.  Both stamped images are die cut and then adhered to the center panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And the finishing touch is a couple of Champagne Rhinestones.  The color matches the Pale Papaya pretty closely.

Directions and Measurements

Beginning with the Pale Papaya card base, it is cut 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4.  Make an accordion fold on the left side of the card with the scores.  Next the striped DSP is cut 1 7/8 X 5 1/4.  (There are two of these pieces but you only see the one on the front in the photo.  The other piece is on the inside of that accordion and is viewed when the card is open.)

The inside back layer is Basic White cut to 4 X 5 1/4.  You can see the matching DSP on the right side edge.  A strip of the gold DSP is cut to 1/2 X 5 1/4 and adhered flush to the right edge of the White.

The front diamonds are cut 2 from Pale Papaya at 1 3/4 X 1 3/4 , and 2 cut from the flowery DSP at 1 1/2 X 1 1/2.  These are adhered together and then placed as a diamond with the points centered on the folded line.  One is even with the DSP at the top and the other at the bottom.  Carefully place the adhesive so it is only on the left side. Otherwise these would stick to the inside back layer.

For the center diamond cut a piece of Pale Papaya to 3 X 3 and a piece of Basic White to 2 3/4 X 2 3/4.  Adhere the die cut flower and leaves to that piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Center the diamond between the two smaller diamonds.  Add this diamond using Stampin Dimensionals also.  Be careful that your adhesive is only on the left side!
