Joyful Poppies

January 23, 2020

Today’s card is a favourite fancy fold of mine – a Joy Fold card.  I’ve combined the fancy fold with the Painted Poppies Product Suite to create the card.  I cut my card base 21cm x 10.5cm from Basic Black card, scored along the 21cm length at 14.8cm.  The small flap is on the left hand side of the card.  I attached a piece of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (14.3cm x 10cm) onto the right hand inside of the card.  I attached another piece of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (5.5cm x 10cm)onto the front of the small flap on the left hand side.  The smaller folding card 20cm x 8cm is cut from Basic Black card and scored along the 20cm length at 10cm.  To decorate the front panel of this smaller folding card, I stamped the image from the Painted Poppies stamp set onto Whisper White card 9.5cm x 7.5cm using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the image 4 times, the first image on the left with the bottom of the image sitting flush with the bottom of the Whisper White card.  The second image is stamped slightly lower so that it fits close to the first image and so on for the other two images.  I coloured the images using Poppy Parade and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I wrapped the bottom of the stamped panel with Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and attached it to the front of the smaller card, making sure that the fold is on the right hand side.  I attached the panel on top of the right hand Designer Series Paper panel with the fold on the right hand side.  I tied a bow in a length of Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and attached it to the panel using MIni Glue Dots.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Whisper White card 9.5cm x 7.5cm using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  This panel is attached inside the smaller folding card.

I stamped the large flower from the Painted Poppies stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The image is coloured using Poppy Parade and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the image using the co-ordinating Painted Labels Die.  The large poppy is attached to the small panel on the left hand side using dimensionals so that the image panel can slide underneath and keep the card closed.

There is a tutorial with video on the Splitcoast Stampers website here.  You will notice that the dimensions of the card pieces I used at different but that is to accommodate the size of a standard Australian card.

I hope you like this card as much as I do.

Bye for now,

Kris
