Hi friends! Happy Friday… is your week flying by as quickly as mine is?! Dang! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m back on this fine chilly morning to share a card I created last summer for Prickley Pear Stamps. This fun fold is called a 4-panel fold and features our Sketched Florals Lilac stamp set along with sentiments from our Flowers For Beautiful You stamp set and some paper-piecing! ;) Despite it’s complex look, though, it was really quite simple.
I cut the card base pieces from CutCardStock Basis Dark Purple cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Amethyst cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone Grapesicle cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, and plaid patterned paper from the Recollections Bold Basics paper pad. I also die cut two rectangles using a Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Rectangle die on which I stamped sentiments. I stamped the lilacs image on the three white cardstock panels and on one of the die cut rectangles. I stamped it several more times on scrap pieces of Solar White cardstock which I colored with alcohol markers, a Heather Spectrum Aqua marker, and a Faber Castell May Green Pitt Artist Pen. I fussy cut the images and paper-pieced them onto the three white cardstock panels and the one die cut rectangle. I layered all the panels together and adhered them to the card base. I then added Nuvo English Mustard Crystal Drops to the centers of all the lilac flowers and added a few gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Amethyst Accent Embellishment Mix to the backgrounds.
Here are a couple additional shots.
And one more look… such a fun fold created with beautiful stamps! I’ve had this handwritten tutorial in my arsenal for many years and it’s hard to believe I hadn’t made one before last summer!
