Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.
Week 21 – Fresh Freesia
Today I have a fun fancy fold design called a Suspended Book Fold card. It looks complicated, but in fact it is fairly easy to create. I am focusing on the Hues of Happiness DSP, with it’s gorgeous purples and floral images.
and here is my card – look at those layers?!!
There are two hinges attached to the 5″ x 7″ card base and the top book fold panels, giving it the ‘suspended’ name.
The top card layer has a strip of Window Sheet which curves to the front and the focal panel is attached to this. I took a scrap piece of white card, approximately 2½” x 2″ and covered it with the die cut (Happiness Abounds dies) images from the Hues of Happiness papers. A simple sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink onto basic white card and glued to the flowers. I added some Brushed Brass Butterflies to finish!
This card does fold flat, but because it is 5″ x 7″, you will need a larger envelope. You may be wondering where to place your written message, well the back of the card has a large space for that!
