Today I want to share a fun fold card we made in one of my classes. It uses the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and the Pansy dies. This is such pretty paper for flower lovers. I love all the colors. Here is the card we made.
This is the card opened.
Start with a card base of Soft Succulent cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4. Burnish the fold at the half of the card and then the small section is folded down toward the inside of the card.
Attach the Pansy paper to the two front sections. They will both measure 2 x 5 3/8. I chose to use the Soft Succulent gingham and the green stripe so that my pansy is the star of the show.
Build the pansy on a layer of Basic White cut using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies. How did I ever stamp without those dies? For the pansy I used Blackberry Bliss, Fresh Freesia, Basic White, Daffodil Delight, and Evening Evergreen card stocks. I did use a sponge dauber and Blackberry Bliss ink to add some color to the freesia petals. Add a bloom to the side using card stock and dies. NOTE: For the tiny pieces of the flower in Blackberry Bliss, cover the back of the card stock with Adhesive Sheets and then cut. This turns these pieces into stickers!
The saying is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.
When you glue the white layer, you'll only put adhesive on half of it. Be very careful.
For the inside of the card, the Basic White layer measures 2 3/8 x 5 3/8. Stamp the saying from Pansy Patch in Blackberry Bliss. The small pansy designer paper is 1 3/4 x 5 3/8.
Make another pansy flower bud with the dies and card stock. Place this one in the lower right corner of the pansy paper with a dimensional. Use this flower to hold the folded card front to display the card.
