But for today's inspiration I thought I'd loop back to the colour pallette that started this weeks inspiration my daughters birthday card. Her favourite colours are bright yellow and a bold shade of blue. So starting with this colour combo I made 2 backgrounds.
The first I made was all in the yellow colour. I stamped the images randomly adding a small spots stamp from another set. I then splattered the same yellow colour alcohol marker all over too.
I then created a background using the blue colour. I used a wide water brush to pick up some ink that I'd added a few drops of water too. Then just painted it across a piece of white cardstock in stripes. Once this was done and dry I took a marker pen in the same colour and a ruler and draw stripes on top.
Now onto the fun fold it's self. For this you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 14.85cm x 28cm. Score the card at 8cm and 18.5cm. Burnish the folds.
Now mark 3.5cm down from the top left and right hand side. Then mark 2.5cm in from the bottom left and right hand side as per the photo below. Now cut the corners off as per the picture below.
When you have removed the corners fold along the score lines so that the sides fold one on top of the other. The fold is a type of gatefold but I'm not sure what it's really called. I just call it a wrap around gatefold.
Once the card base was made it was time to reach for the backgrounds and use them to decorate my card.
