A Vibrant Fun Fold Card

I feel like I am getting braver with distress inks and it is starting to show, I love the vibrancy of this card.

It feels really summery to me and reminds me of a red hot sunset and marigolds. Not sure why the marigolds maybe it is the orangey red.



I finally got to use my Made to Surprise Funky Flowers Stamp set and I have to be honest and say that I am really impressed. I just love the big daisy.

The way I cut the card base means that it gives you 2 card bases from one piece of A4, so the added bonus of being able to make 2 cards at once if you wish.

1 Piece of  Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable A4 card stock in light green
1 A4 Piece of White Card Stock

Instructions
Cut a piece of white card to 3 3/4 inch by 5 1/4 inch

Using the blending tool, blend fossilised amber distress ink onto the card stock

From the other end blend abandoned coral distress ink to about the half way point

Using the large daisy from the made to surprise stamp set, make a stamp mask (Read my tutorial on masking stamps here). Then stamp the daisy in festive berries into the middle of the card stock.


Mask this image and stamp again, slightly over lapping.


Continue this process until your paper is full


Cut this diagonally corner to Corner

Cut a piece of A4 Card Stock to 11 inch 

 
Score at 5 1/2 inch on the long side


Turn the card and score at 4 1/8 inch


Cut the card stock on the reverse side, corner to corner. This will give you 2 identical card bases.See picture below


Fold and burnish the score lines



Stick the stamped paper on using double sided tape
