Knowing You - Fun Fold Card

Good morning! 

I recently found a terrific tutorial for making the card below. There is a link to that blog post further down... It is very easy to do! 

I chose to use the Budding Peony stamp and die combination to create my card. Using dies for this really does make it easier, although you certainly could fussy cut images if you wanted to do so. 

I stamped all the images and coloured them first - then die cut each of them. The card base is Bluebird Cardstock and the patterned papers are Bluebird or Carolina patterns to go with the cardstock. The base of the card was cut and assembled and then it was time to decorate. I wanted a place to write a message so that is on the far side inside the card. The peonies and leaves were placed throughout the card and the shadow lines on the flowers were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. I stamped two sentiments - one for the outside and one for the inside. Each was mounted on a piece of Bluebird cardstock after being cut with stitched dies. The area to write was stamped in second generation with the Splash of Colour stamp, just to add more interest. 

This card fits inside a standard card envelope - perfect for mailing. 

The link to the tutorial is HERE. Enjoy - this card is fun and easy to create!
