Ever feel glad the weekend is over? This weekend was busy and my sleep schedule changed a bit. The best part about my weekend was my technique class! It was the first of many to come! Getting together with other stampers and teaching them new techniques is a lot of fun! I’ll be sharing those cards Thursday! I haven’t been able to photograph them yet.
Today’ card I created for a stamp a stack last month and forgot to share it! I was inspired by the card design from Dawn Griffith. Here‘s her blog post that I based my card off of.
I didn’t start with a full card base I decided to just use a half a card so my Daffodil Delight card stock was cut at 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″. This card feels so summery! I used the Tutti-Frutti 6×6 designer series paper. The Daffodil Delight and white striped paper is simple but pretty. I just cut the DSP into strips of 5 1/2″ by 1/2″. This lets me not waste my DSP behind the white card flap.
The Whisper White is cut to 2 7/8″ x 11″ score at 5 1/2″. I add the DSP strip behind the back edges of this long card. Before adhering that down you want to have your front strip adhered to the back. The strip is cut to 1″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.
Underneath the front flap I added another strip of DSP this time I used the citrus one. I added some glimmer washi tape on the edge of the DSP for some extra texture. The washi tape is rom the myths & magic suite.
The front flap, I added a piece of the citrus DSP and flagged the end of the flap. Next I added the sentiment layer. I punched out a piece of Lemon Lime Twist using the Starburst punch. I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral. The sentiment is from the stamp set Colorful Seasons. I then punched it out with the 2″ circle punch and added it to the Starburst with Stampin’ Dimensional.
Then aded my last touches using the Ombre Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and some rhinestones.
I hope to create a lemon/citrus gift basket for my upcoming craft show and this would be the perfect card to include within it.
Thank you for stopping in today! I hope you enjoyed my card today. I love that I got the idea from Dawn Griffith! This is a fun fold to try!
