DT 104 - Blooming Flowers Fancy Fold Card

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 104! 

Happy Hoodie Hoo Day! If you aren't sure what that's all about, be sure to check out the Double Trouble website for more information as it is related to the challenge. 

I chose to create a Double Accordion Display Fold Card. The closed card is 6" x 6" but it opens to be much longer than that. 

Several colours of cardstock and patterned paper designs were used to create this card. The patterned papers on the front were embossed with a scalloped pattern to match the blue scalloped patterned paper inside the card. I stamped a watering can with flowers as that is a perfect sign of spring to me! The sentiment was stamped under the image in various coordinating colours. There is a panel on the back to write a message. 

I stamped a second watering can and die cut that image for the belly band. I added a few tiny flowers and some coloured sparkles on the band. No embellishments were added inside so the card folds flat but I did brush some images with a clear shimmer brush.

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this week's challenge.

Wow! What a surprise when the belly band is removed and opened to all this lusciousness... love that stamp set and the use of it was an excellent choice for your Spring theme.
