Hello friends! Today I will be sharing another card that was created as a make and take at our Crafting at the Lake Event. This card used the Tulip Fields stamp set and it was created by my friend Susanne.
First we stamped the double flower image stamp using the Stamparatus (so it was lined up perfectly) and Fresh Freesia ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock. Then we stamped the single flower image twice using Calypso Coral ink. We placed this close to the previously stamped Fresh Freesia flowers. Next we stamped the same flower image twice using So Saffron ink and finally we stamped the center flower image using Fresh Freesia ink again. After we had the flowers all stamped, we stamped the windmill from the same stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. We used watercolour pencils to colour in parts of the windmill and then used a Blender Pen to blend the colours. Then came the fun part....we had to fussy cut along the top edge of the Fresh Freesia flowers and also cut out the windmill while leaving it attached to the field of flowers.
On a Basic White Thick card base, we attached a piece of DSP from the Flowering Fields DSP pack on the top part of our card front. We attached the stamped flower field to the bottom of the card front. When the card is opened the front folds at the top of the flowers and the windmill stands up.
On a small strip of Basic White cardstock, we stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. We matted this onto another piece of DSP from the Flowering Fields DSP pack and added this to the inside of our card using dimensionals. This becomes the stopper for the card so the easel will stand up properly when opened up.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. It is a super fun fun-fold that is not super difficult but has a lot of wow!
Stay well and keep creating!
