Flower & Field

February 4, 2021

The Flower & Field Designer Series Paper which is available free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration is really beautiful. There are some great patterns on both sides of the paper and although I am not a fan of “busy” patterns, all of these patterns have great appeal. I used this Designer Series Paper yesterday on my Facebook Live to show off some drapery fold cards and I thought I would share a couple more today. These cards begin by cutting Designer Series Paper 10″ x 5″. You score the 10″ length at 1″ and 1-1/2″ intervals all the way across. You cut diagonally across the paper one each corner and then cut the whole piece in half.

This gives two pieces of beautifully folded designer series paper which allowed me to create two same but different cards. To create the cards, I also used the A Touch of Ink stamp set which is also Free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration. I stamped the leafy image from the A Touch of Ink stamp set onto the top of Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the floral image from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I stamped the fill image for the leaves using Granny Apple Green ink and the flower using Poppy Parade ink. I stamped the greeting from the A Touch of Ink stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I embossed a piece of Poppy Parade card using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then cut one 10cm edge using the border from the Be Mine Stitched Dies. I attached the Designer Series Paper to the embossed Poppy Parade card and wrapped the top of the paper using Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon. The whole panel is attached to the bottom of the stamped Basic White card. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the butterfly image from the A Touch of Ink stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White card. I added the fill image using Poppy Parade ink. I also stamped another greeting from the A Touch of Ink stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Because I had two pieces, I used the reverse side of the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper to create another card. This card is exactly the same except I have used Flirty Flamingo ink and card instead of Poppy Parade. You will notice that the folds look slightly different on each card.

I think they both turned out great and I know that I am going to make more of these drapery fold cards. In fact I don’t know why I haven’t done so before.

Bye for now,

Kris
