As promised in my previous post, filled with lots and lots of stamping, this post is all about the paper. Beautiful patterns of paper combined together into one card. I also recently came across a blog post from 2011 with many many different card folds and realized I had gotten into quite a rut with the same ole standard card size single fold. Time to change it up a bit.
The idea for this card started from having the DSP laying out on my counter and the piece on top is the one with those delicious peaches. I decided to fussy cut out those peaches. I even cut some that were on the side of the side of the paper. For those peaking out from behind the full peaches I didn’t need to have to use a whole peach from the center of the paper.
From there it was a matter of finding other papers in the series that would work well on all the different panels and a fold to show them off.
The fold of this card provides so many ways to show off the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series paper. There are four different patterns featured on this card and because they are from the same Series, they all work lovely together. A Joyfold card is like two cards put together.
- The larger piece is 4 1/4 x 9 scored at 3 1/2. The smaller piece is 8×3 scored at 4 and then they fit together like this….
- and this….
- I originally intended my greeting to go across the middle or certainly horizontally but once the peaches were placed I realized the greeting would just cover them up too much. That was when I pulled out my Vertical Greetings stamp set and solved my problem.
Thanks for visiting today. Hope to see you soon next time.
