Happy 87th, Mom

Happy Monday!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Monday, We've Got Your Number, Simon Says Wednesday, Showers and/or Flowers and Scrapy Land, Spring Blooms.

I found this awesome Video by Dawn for a Four Fold Card.  I have never seen these before, but loved it.  Check it out for yourself!



 
 
This card will fit into a regular A2 size envelope, pretty cool!  I used White and Turquoise Sea card stock by Gina K Designs.  My Designer Paper is by The Craft Smith, Tea Party.  It has these beautiful turquoise and pink roses all on a background of pretty gold.  I also added Gold and Hot Pink Foiled die cuts to accentuate the gold of the Designer Paper.  Crafty Ann Butterfly 6 die. The small hearts are from the Memory Box Homespun Heart die cut.
 
 
 


 
 
This is the card fully opened, pretty impressive, aye?  Dawn shares all of the sizes in her video.
 
 
 
 


 
 
Altenew  stamp and die sets; Beautiful Day and Wild Hibiscus.
 
 


 
 
Power Poppy stamp sets; Go Wild, Potted Primroses and Short Stacks.
 
 
 

 
 
Inks in; Bermuda Bay and Raven Black.  Copic Markers. 
 
 
 
 


 
 
Gina K Designs stamp set Simple Numbers.  Spellbinders Standard Circle die.
 
 
 

 
 
Very back of card.  I used the Stampin' Up! Sealed With Love stamps and Love Notes die set.  Made the small little envelope and tucked a note inside, this is where I will add my little handwritten note.
 
 
 

 
 
Obviously you can decorate the panels anyway you like, but I kind of followed along with Dawn's examples.
 
 
 
 

 
 
Also made a matching envelope, which she'll probably save.  :)
 
This was a lot of FUN to create!  I think I will make one for a 99 year man I know. 
 
Thanks for coming by.
 
Enjoy~~

  15. Oh wow! You've really outdone yourself this time, Donna! I love everything about this card. I wasn't familiar with this fold pattern, either, so it was a treat to see it in action. I also loved the way you made the floral panels a focal point. This card has so many elements that are pulled together beautifully. Your mom will love this and I'm sure she's always so proud of her MEGA TALENTED daughter!
