Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 15 – Early Espresso
Do you immediately think masculine when you see the colour, Early Espresso?! I usually do, but when I looked at the patterned papers and saw that Early Espresso is in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper and it being the start of Spring, I had to go with flowers for tonight’s card!
This Double Fan Fold card was inspired by Sam Calcott, UK. I did change up my measurements slightly, but the design is practically the same. I do love a fancy fold for its wow factor and I think this really makes a statement.
The card base is Early Espresso as is the centre background layer, embossed with the Greenery TIEF. There is also a Gold Foil layer behind it.
I love the three medium daisies down the front of the card and each one is made up of 3 layers; Early Espresso, stamped Bumblebee and plain Bumblebee with a Gold Foil accent in the centre from the Poppy Moments dies. The leaves are also from this die set.
The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Classic Label Punch was used to cut it out and then it is popped up on black dimensionals.
You may me wondering where you write a message to send this to someone? I cut a piece of white card to the same size as the Gold Foil layer on the front, then glued it to the back of the card. This card also folds flat to fit into an envelope.
Here it is open flat so you can see all the angles.
