This card created in Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper with Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight tags and tassels is bright and fun to make.
Double fold cards look oh so difficult and yet the card is quick, easy and its all in the fold! You start with an 8 1/2″ X 11″ card stock, (preferably double sided) and fold its and its ready to be decorated. There are so many things that you can stick in those pockets to decorate the card are endless. I used tags with sentiments but thought about gift cards, a special photograph (the insert can be as wide as 4″ wide and as tall as 5 inches. This card is a regular size 4 1/2″ X 5 1/4″ Card. It does open and has plenty of room for writing or another two pictures
Don’t you love the bright colors that Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy create in this card? It immediately makes you happy. The Base Card is Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper and folded into a double pocket card. Once folded I used the Flourish Thinlets border die in Daffodil Delight. I adhered it along the pocket line with the Fine Tip Glue Pen trimming the die cut to fit the edge.
The flower cluster is die cut from Daffodil Delight and Cucumber Crush. I used the leaf die cut from the May Flower Framelits set and the flower was die cut from the small flower in the Botanical Builder Framelit set. The center of the flower are enamel shapes in Night of Navy from the Regal Enamel Shapes. The leaves and the flowers were adhered using glue dots for perfect placement.
The tags made by cutting a strip of Daffodil Delight and punching the top using the Scalloped Tag Punch. The Tassels were made handmade from Night of Navy Solid Twine. The flower silhouette was die cut in Very Vanilla using the Flourish Thinlits Die. I made it go off the page for interest. Using Night of Navy Ink I stamped the sentiments below the die cuts. Thank you sentiment is from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set and the My Heart Smiles is from the Suite Sayings Stamp Set. I layered the Very Vanilla with Night of Navy Card Stock and cut it very close just to give it a slim shadow. These are adhered using SNAIL adhesive.
The inside of the crd is layered with Daffodil Delight Card Stock cut 1/2″ less and the top layer is Very Vanilla cut a bit narrower. I stamped two corners in Daffodil Delight using the small flower bunch from Love and Affection Stamp Set. I didn’t get it in the picture but the opposite page on the inside is the same lovely pattern as the front.
