Card Maker Corner (CardMaker Magazine) has a challenge this week called, "Color Me Spring". The lovely Lora Brinkman has asked us to make a card using blue, green, pink and sandstone - no white or black allowed.
I thought it would be nice to do a different fold for this one and decided on an easel card. The image is vintage clip art of a seed catalogue. My flowers are some first attempts at rolled flowers. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I used an EK Success punch for my borders and Spellbinders Nestabilities for my die cuts. Most of my papers are Stampin' Up.
To make my easel card I cut an 8"x6" piece of cardstock and scored the long edge at 2" and 4". I cut an additional piece of cardstock at 4"x6" for my card front. I folded the large piece along the score lines, folding at 4" to make a normal fold card and then at 2" toward the middle. I glued the bottom of my card front to the bottom of the 2" fold. I hope that makes sense. Maybe next time I will take pictures of the process.
