If you think this card is over laden with flowers that might be because it is and do I care? No! It's June flowers should be everywhere! I'm not the most floral of girls, in fact I don't do pattern much at all and embellishments are usually understated but you know what? I thought it's summer, it's sunny, it's warm, there's misery in the world, let's indulge in prettiness and colour and brighten things up a bit.
I made this using all Stampin' Up! products which are all below so if you fancy making this card for yourself you can just click and magically find yourself in my online Stampin' Up! store where you can buy fab stuff and make your own.
I actually made this to satisfy two challenges I've been involved in. Crafting challenges are great for forcing you to be creative and for taking you out of your comfort zone a bit. So the first challenge was to participate in the Pootler's team new Stampin' Up! catalogue blog hop. If you've arrived here from that then welcome and thank you for clicking to visit my site please don't be a stranger and subscribe to make sure you're not.
The second challenge is one my direct team leader Ann (of Ann's Happy Stampers) sets us each month to create a card along a theme chosen by one of the team. This month it was unusual folds and so I figured this card will be great for both challenges as it features an unusual fold and also is made entirely of new catalogue goodies.
Hope you like it, I will be doing a tutorial on this card but I did get the idea for the fold of the card from a You Tube tutorial by Splitcoaststampers which you can go and check out if you want to know how to make the card base. How you decorate it is up to you.
I used a Whisper White card base and then added layers of Colour Theory DSP in Berry Burst (LOVE the ombre effect on this DSP), then added some stamped and die cut flowers and leaves using the Falling Flowers stamp set and the May Flowers Framelits dies. I also used a butterfly die cut using Berry Burst card stock and vellum from the Bold Butterfly framelits. My sentiment is from One Big Meaning Stamp Set and the oval shapes were made using the Stiched Shapes framelits. I finished off with a few little sparkly bits, using glitter enamel dots and faceted gems. Everything is linked below anyway including adhesive and ink pads. There's some Tranquil tide cardstock and ink on my card too.
Thanks for dropping in as always.
