For the Coach

September 9, 2019

Both my granddaughters have the same netball coach and I was asked by my daughter to create cards for both girls teams to give to her for looking after them so well this season.  Since both coaches are one and the same person, I couldn’t create two cards the same.   I really love this dreamy double fold card that I found on Lisa Curico’s blog and decided that it would be perfect for Elyssa’s team.  I used Petal Pink for my card base and attached a piece of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to the small panel on the left.  I stamped “Thank you” from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the front Whisper White panel using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I stamped the large and the small flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink. I stamped the flower centre for the small flower using Crushed Curry ink.  I stamped two sets of leaves onto Old Olive card using Old Olive ink.  I hand cut the flowers and the leaves.  I attached the small flower on top of the large flower using dimensionals and attached the leaves to the back of the large flower.  The flower is attached flat to the stamped panel.  I attached the greeting panel to Petal Pink card and then attached it to the small flap using dimensionals under the left hand side of the panel only.  I used Whisper White to create the inside card and stamped the small flower onto the lower left hand corner using Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight ink.  This panel is attached to the inside back panel of the Petal Pink card.  I stamped “worlds greatest” from the retired Guy Greetings stamp set onto Whsiper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I cut “coach” from Blackberry Bliss card using some non-Stampin’ Up! dies I have had for ages.  I love the funky look to these dies.  I also stamped the small flower from the Floral Essence stamp set once more using Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry ink.  The stamped panel is attached to Petal Pink card and then the front of the folded Whisper White card, making sure that sits completely behind the stamped panel on the front of the card.

This such a lovely card fold and really simple to do but it packs a lot of punch, Don’t you think?  AND it does leave lots of space for the girls to write their messages.

Bye for now,
