Happy Wednesday Stampers!
Today I have the pleasure of joining a FABULOUS group of stampers from around the world for our "Around the World on Wednesday" blog hop!
This month's theme is to case a team member....and today I get to case the OH SO TALENTED Sharon Burkert!
I had a really tough job deciding on which of Sharon's cards I wanted to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit), so.....I combined three of her cards to inspire my one card!
Ok first off here are her three cards:
For these first two cards, I LOVED the sunflowers!
And for this third card, I loved the top opening fun fold and the gift card holder!
So I went to work and changed up the fun fold a bit and combined ideas from all three cards to come up with my card:
Mine is a bottom opening fun fold. I love how it looks like the flowers are hanging over the top of a wooden fence!
Here is a closeup view of the flowers colored with Stampin Blends and fussy cut:
And the inside is a gift card holder:
So if you would like to create this card, here is a quick tutorial:
Jar of Flowers stamp set
Bloom and Grow stamp set
Memento Black ink pad
Early Espresso ink pad
Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive
Stampin Blends: dark Just Jade, Light Just Jade, Dark Mango Melody, Dark Cinnamon Cider, Light Cinnamon Cider, Dark Calypso Coral
Cardstock & Basic Instructions:
Early Espresso 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 score 4 1/4- use a paper trimmer to remove 3 inches from the top of the front panel. Burnish scoreline so card base lays flat.
Balmy Blue 4 x 7 1/4 score at 5 1/4- burnish score line to form a pocket for gift card. I used a fine line of Tombow to glue sides of the pocket and then I glued the panel to the inside of the card.
Woodgrain DSP( to resemble a fence ) 4 x 2 1/4 - glue to the bottom front gate
Very Vanilla scraps to stamp the flowers from the Jar of Flowers stamp set twice with Memento Black ink. Color with Stampin Blends and fussy cut. Glue the flowers to the card front being careful to only put Tombow where you are attaching to the top of the fence.
Use Stamparatus and Early Espresso ink to stamp greeting from the Bloom & Grow stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed today's blog post and please continue on the tour for a whole lot more creative inspiration!
