BIRTHDAY BLOSSOMS TRI-FOLD CARD!

Here is one of the cards we made at our stamping weekend.  I like the way this turned out. Andrea first made it and had CASED it from Pinterest. (Sorry I don’t know who the original creator was). Of course, we all really liked it and had to copy. 🙂

P1170032

The base card is Pink Pirouette and the frame is Tip Top Taupe.  To make the frame I used the ‘Lots of Labels’ Framelits using 2 framelits together.  I used the smaller framelit that I used for the frame to cut a window in the front of the card.  I stamped the flowers and leaves in Tip Top Taupe in scrap white card. The great thing is the flower matches the Pansy Punch – no cutting!!! You do have to cut the leaves out but that is OK. I went around the outlines on the flowers and leaves with the Markers (Pink Pirouette and Mint Macaron) and I coloured the centres in. I added some pearls for some glam.  The small flowers were inked in Pink Pirouette and then stamped off before stamping on the base card in the bottom left corner.

Now open wide …..

The smaller flowers were stamped on a piece of Whisper White in Tip Top Taupe and coloured with the markers again.  The greeting was stamped in Soft Suede.  You can’t quite see but I added tiny pearls to all the centres.

Now open it out….

I inked up the small flowers again in Pink Pirouette and stamped them off on scrap paper. Then I stamped them on the next flap along the edge on the right side. I repeated this a few times of inking, stamping off  and stamping on the card.

Do you want to know the dimensions???  It is basically a standard base card and score the card in 1/3rd’s.  If that makes sense??  I did make this card a little taller though (15.4cm x 21cm).  It is easy to make your own and just a little different to the standard card.

Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a super wonderful day today 🙂
