I had been seeing a lot of cards on my pinterest feed using this technique. They call this the “Collar Fold.” If you turn it sideways, it does look like a collar. Anyway, I used the Eastern Palace Suite to create this card.
The colors are Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and Very Vanilla. The Eastern Medallions Thinlets cut out the flower and I stuck one of the flower stickers to the card stock. It’s so pretty!
Best thing to do is to find the center of the paper. The DSP is 3 3/4 x 5 – I put a tick mark on the 2 1/2″ mark and cut 1 7/8″ in. I scored the paper from the corner to center (because I am anal). Then I folded the paper back. I like this technique. You might see this technique again soon! hehe.
We were given three images to inspire a card. A sideline of mine made a card that helped me bring this card to fruition. Her card was very different but still had a sunflower on it. I was moved to make this card by seeing that card and this image. This card uses a few different things. I used the Layering Circles framelits for the flower’s center. I used the Eastern Medallions thinlets for flower. The stem uses the Flourish Thinlets. I used Whisper White Thick card stock, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White. On the sides, Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers were used. I sponged the flower with Chocolate Chip ink and Wink of Stella Clear. It gave the flower a gold-ish glittery look. What do you think?
Card sketches are probably my favorite types of challenges. I like seeing someone’s sketch and making a card with it. As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew what stamp set I would use immediately! “Just add text” has a couple of different longer text blocks. It was perfect for this card. I used the Eastern Palace DSP, the Glittery Acrylic Shapes and 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon. I pulled one of the fibers out of the ribbon, rolled it up and used a dimensional to keep it place. I used the new Very Vanilla Thick card stock.
I would love to see a card YOU make with this sketch! Like me on Facebook and post your card on my page! https://www.facebook.com/swaltitude/
