Ink, Stamp, Share February Blog Hop - Fancy Folds

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog today. Welcome, too, to the Ink Stamp Share February Blog Hop. This month our theme is Fancy Folds. A theme that always pushes me out of my comfort zone! For my project, I went back to a card I had made a couple of years ago and brought it right up to date with products from the Spring Mini Catalogue - Pierced Blooms dies and Hydrangea Hill DSP. 

The photo above shows my card from the front, and below, to show off the design a bit better, from the side and above.

And here is a close up of the bouquet, made up with dies from the Pierced Blooms die set - rapidly becoming one of my favourites. 

Not sure why, but I seem to be in a "pastels" phase at the moment! For my card today I went with Purple Posy, Pool Party and So Saffron.  This card will be heading to my mum for Mother's Day on March 14th and I'm hoping she'll love these colours. The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set - a great one for spring cards. Expect to see more of it soon!

I will be back with a video tutorial to show you how I made my card  really soon - both how to make the fancy fold and how I decorated it. I used Imperial measurements as that is easier with our new trimmer. But if you can't wait to see how to do the fancy fold, and don't mind the measurements in metric, you can watch my previous video HERE.
