Today's card had a new fold that is really cute. I'm not sure I chose colors that do it justice though. I will save that decision for you so make sure you let me know what you think of this card.
I found a great blog a couple of months ago with some great punch ideas and card folds. I decided to revisit it yesterday and ran across this card fold which I decided to try.
The challenge this week at Late Night Stampers is to make Mother's Day cards. The colors I chose to use were Regal Rose, Mellow Moss, and Pale Plum. I used the Regal Rose card front and folded following the directions on Valita's blog. After that I highlighted the folds with Pale Plum ink. I then attached it to the Mellow Moss card base that I had stamped the edges with the flower from Messages for Mom. I stamped the flower with Basic Black and colored it in with markers. I added some Frost White Shimmer Paint in the center of all the flowers. I mounted this on Pale Plum. The card needed something else, so I pulled out my Fine Flourish and stamped it with Regal Rose on the top layer and the bottom layer so the middle layer was left blank. I then punched out 3 flowers using the Boho Blossoms punch. I used the Pale Plum marker to draw lines from the center out. Using the piercing tool, I used the side of the blade to create a fold line and curl the petals up. I added a gold brad and sponged the edges with Pale Plum. I added a white satin bow and my card was finished. Now you need to let me know what you think. Here is my creation.
