awash and bored

Hi friends!  I am sitting at the airport…and bored!  So here I am online and I thought I’d post a card I recently made for a stamp camp I attended.  It was held in a church and the organizers requested that a card be donated that the church could use in their ministry…I was happy to oblige!

I used the SU! set Awash With Flowers…this is such a pretty flower set!  I enjoyed getting it out again.  The card that I created was called a Magic card but there’s really no magic to it.  I keep thinking of it as a “Wing Card”…LOL…because it reminds me of wings that spread out on each side.  I first saw this type of card when my DT friend Anne created one.  You can find the basic directions here, but I sized it down to fit into a 5 1/2″ square envelope. 

*The measurements for the three pieces of cardstock that I used are as follows:

1st base piece-  5 1/4 x 5 inch, scored at 7/8″ from both sides and punched with a border punch.

2nd base piece-  5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch, scored at 1 inch from both sides and punched with a border punch.

front piece-  3 1/4 x 6 3/4 inch, scored at 5 1/4 and 5 3/8  

Here’s how it looks from the front when standing up…

As you can see, I did a LOT of sponging.  LOL.  And here’s a view of the card from the top so you can see how the sides fold out.

The front panel lifts up to reveal the inside…

And…I even decorated the envelope.  I punched a circle in scrap paper to make a reverse mask for the front…

stamps- SU! Awash With Flowers, Happy Moments (for you), and Sincere Salutations; paper- white, Choc. Chip, SU! Greenhouse Gala; ink- Choc. Chip; accessories- SU! punches- Border Scallop Trim, 1 3/4 circle, 2 1/2 circle, and 2 3/8 scallop circle, SU! Elegant Lines embossing folder, Daffodil ribbon, rhinestones, foam dimensionals. 

Have an awesome day!
