This was really a fun card to create! The layout was from yesterdays Splitcoaststampers Try a New Technique Challenge! (TLC164) This technique is so easy! Here is the tutorial on how to create it! There are so many possibilities with this card. I will be using it as a Mother's Day card. I may make another one and use one of the pockets as a gift card holder. OH and did you notice the dragonfly right next to the flower!!! I folded it just right so that the dragonfly would be on the front!!!! Hehehe!!!
All products are from Stampin' Up! I love blue bayou and thought the designer series paper would be perfect for this project! I will be so sad when this color retires. I also used whisper white and blue bayou card stock and blue bayou classic ink. I chose the A Beautiful Thing stamp set! First you fold the 8 1/2 x 11 sheet according to the directions from the link above. This was very easy. Then I stamped the saying on to the cs and punched it out using the designer label punch. I layered that onto the cs and then the dsp card front. To create the flower I used the scallop circle punch and cut it to make it look like petals then I layered it with several flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch. The smallest flower came from a $1 punch I picked up at the dollar spot @ Target a while ago. I used a silver brad to attach all of the layers and then a dimensional to attach it to the card. I made the two inserts in the same colors as the card. The smaller of the two I plan to write a little something for the mother that I am giving it to and the other I made as a bookmark for her. I attached the blue bayou double stitch ribbon with a staple and used the corner rounder punch on each insert.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
