Woo Hoo it's Friday who's ready for the weekend? I certainly am as next week I'm going to New Orleans for a Stampin' Up! Event 😁 so the weekend is going to be filled with packing and getting organised! In preparation of going away I've been busy creating samples for blog posts and classes. So today is my final post of the week using the gorgeous Grassy Grove bundle. And as it's Friday it must be a fun fold.
The fold for today is very easy it's basically 2 cards stuck together ! So it starts with a piece of black cardstock that measures 10.5cm x 29.7cm and scored at 14.85cm. You also need a piece of white cardstock measuring 10cm x 29.2cm scored at 14.6cm.
Cut a piece of black cardstock measuring 10.5cm x 14.85cm. Line up the die centrally and pass it through the die cutting machine. Next take the black piece of cardstock and put it on top of the front of the card base and place the die back in place. Pass it though the machine so that the die cuts in exactly the same place. Next adhere the 2 pieces together. This makes it stronger than just one layer.
Next cut a mat of thick white cardstock measuring 13.9cm x 9.5cm. Now take your ink pads and blending brushes and create a background. I used an orange called mango melody , a pink called polished pink and a blue called night of navy.
Once the panel is dry I used a Stamparatus ro help me stamp in black ink the deer and grassy stamp to create a scene that can be viewed throught the card front.
Next I took the white card base and stamped in black all along the bottom of the entire length of the cardstock. This in turn becomes the inside of the white card.
With the fold on the right-hand side , so opening the opposite way to the black card base, adhere the blended panel on the front.
Adhere the white card inside the black card so that it opens from the inside. Please look at the pictures as I don't think it makes much sense in the written form but a picture tells it all!!
I love how this card came together. It is a very simple fun fold that packs a punch with the bold colour palette and the strong black and white accents.
Well that's all from me for this week. Please join me here next week when Gill eill be sharing her creations with us all.
