The Colors of Spring
My finished card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". It is a fun fold card called a Flap Fold card. Make a regular sized card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2. Cut a piece of white cardstock 3 1/4" x 5 1/2" and score at 1/2". Glue this piece to the back of the card centering it. This piece is meant to fold over to the front of the card and to hold the card closed. I like to use magnets on flaps so they don't come open. Decide on placement of the magnets and glue down. Cover the flap with a piece of Sheet 12B of the paper collection. I picked out a sentiment from Sheet 3A of the paper collection and cut it out. I cut each end of the sentiment so that it looks like a banner. I just eye balled it and then I used dimensional tape to adhere it to the card front. It also covers where the magnet is so that it is hidden.
Cover the card front with a piece of Sheet 8B of the paper collection and then I chose a card front from Sheet #9A of the paper collection and cut it down so it would fit behind the flap. This piece just adds a bit more interest to the card and you could stamp a sentiment on it if you wanted.
I covered the inside of the card with a piece of Sheet 12B of the paper collection and cut a layering piece of white cardstock to go on top of that. Next cut a strip of Sheet 8B and glue to the piece of white cardstock. This was just a scrap piece of paper I didn't measure it at all.
Stamp the Hollyhock flower petals onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Magenta Hue ink and color the flowers with that as well. Use Buttercup for the centers of the flowers and then cut out with coordinating dies. Layer onto mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Allow to dry then add the Prills to the centers of the flowers.
Stamp the Leafy Accent leaves with Leaf Green ink and color with same. Cut out with coordinating dies and then edge with Olive ink. Layer onto mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Lay out onto desk to dry.
When everything is dry, decide on placement and hot glue down. The card is finished.
