AnToday’s card is a little bit of a Fun Fold paired with Symbol of Fortune Designer Series Paper. And the wonderful Flowing Flowers stamp set.
Today’s card is my entry as part of the design team for the Make My Monday Challenge. Springtime is the theme of this challenge. And these flowers with butterflies say Spring for me. You can join our challenge as well. Simply click on the icon and you will be taken to the blog.
The beautiful DSP is the star of this card. It is the Symbols of Fortune Designer Series paper from the Mini Catalog. This flowers and butterfly piece is my favorite piece of the pack. And the piece for the layer on the right hand side is the back of the first. I went with a very neutral Crumb Cake for the base and pulled the Evening Evergreen for the layers. There are several color options available to be pulled from this beautiful paper.
With the gorgeous paper on this card I wanted a simpler stamp for the focal layer. My choice is a favorite from the Mini Catalog and it is the Flowing Flowers stamp set. That gorgeous, yet simple, flower is all the card needed. By using the Calypso Coral with the flower it allowed another complimentary color. And the simple “Hey” is from the Best Year stamp set. Just the tiny word was enough of an added punch.
To add a bit of sparkle for the flower the Iridescent Rhinestones for the center fit perfectly. And to mimic the sweet butterflies of the paper, one of the beautiful Brushed Brass Butterflies is flying in. These little guys add a touch of elegance to any card.
This fun fold can be used vertically or horizontally with the focal layer moved around as well. With the focal layer placed a bit higher normal it shows the most of the butterflies on the paper. The Crumb Cake card base is cut to 5 1/2 X 7 1/2 and scored at 3 1/4. This allows the side strip of DSP to show. The Evening Evergreen layers are 3 X 5 1/4 and 1 X 5 1/4. And the DSP is cut to 2 3/4 X 5 and 3/4 X 5. The smaller strips are adhered to the inside White layer which is 4 X 5 1/4. Finally the focal layer is cut 3 X 3 and 2 3/4 X 2 3/4.
