Flowers for beautiful you

Hi friends! A super Happy Saturday to you! Hope you have something fun (but safe) planned this weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this morning to share another sample I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps Spring 2021 Release! I’ve had the best time creating with these amazing new sketched florals, super sweet praying Tess, and the masculine stamps! Be sure to check them out! I’ve had handwritten instructions for a new fun fold in my arsenal for several months now, called a double easel fold, which I saw in a newsletter from Sharon Armstrong, a SU Demonstrator in Texas, so I decided to try it out. It’s super easy and oh, I love it! This card features the gorgeous Sketched Florals – Lilac stamp set which I paired with the Flowers for Beautiful You stamp set!

I cut the card base and layering panels from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Grape Jelly cardstock. I stamped the full image on the Solar White layering panel and a partial image on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, and colored them with Bic Mark-Its. I used those markers this time because I really liked the purples in the set for this image. I trimmed the colored images, stamped the sentiments and layered them on the purple cardstock panels.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock as well and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Basis 80# Dark Purple cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Grape Jelly cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the lighter purple cardstock.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. This is such a pretty card. I think I might try this fold soon. I have some differently folded cards I need to make for a Christmas challenge. I avoid different folds like the plague, but I like this one!
