Tuesday Throwdown blog challenge girls as a Design Team member and I look forward to working with each one.
This week MYGRAFICO is our sponsor and gave us some lovely, pre-colored florals to work with. The name is called Spotsy Dotsy Floral Collection.There are a lot of elements, borders and papers in the collection.
I saw this double flap card at Dawn's Stamping Studio and wanted to give it a try. There is a video and the card is really easy to make. I curled my flower a bit with the stylus, put some greenery behind it that I punched out, and added a butterfly punched out of red glitter paper.
I'm using my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and my favorite, Textile, embossing folders.
My left flap opens and show the sentiment. I used a Happy Birthday sentiment and it could be Happy Birthday America (as we are doing red, white, and blue) or it could just be a birthday card for anyone.
You can open the right flap and this is where you can write a note. I added some plain paper for writing as I had embossed this area. I also printed out the same flower as on the front, just a smaller version, and added to the top of the notecard...just for a pretty touch.
