For You in Pink

Happy Thursday!

Today I have a card to share using Inspired by Stamping dies, paper, and stamps:


To make this fancy-fold card, start with a piece of CS cut at 5 1/2 x 8 3/4.  Place the second smallest IBS Fancy Label 1 Die in the middle on one end of the CS and make a little pencil mark on each side of the die.  Cut the CS down about 7/8" inside each pencil mark, and cut across on both sides so there is a middle tab. Place the die on the tab and run it through your die cutting machine so that only the top of the die cuts.  Score on the tab and across at 4 1/4.  Repeat to make the tab on the other end.  Add eyelets on the tabs. 

I decorated the front of the card with paper from the new IBS Vintage Floral Paper Pad and used a sentiment from the Beautiful Iris stamp set.

Let's not forget the inside:



The smaller image from the new Vintage Roses stamp set was stamped on the inside panels. I like how they 'peek out' when the card is closed.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

House of Cards February Challenge #1 - Color and/or Photo Inspiration + Cute or Shabby

Mod Squad Challenge Blog - Thinking of Spring

"More Than One Score" Score-Pal Challenge #1 - Flowers

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - We Love Stamps!

The Card Concept Challenge #3 - use monochromatic pink (I would say this card is in the Classy & Elegant category)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Lisa,
This card is lovely. Happy Valentine's! I agree with you, this certainly goes in the "elegant and classy" category. I love the unique closure and how the 'For You' label is layered and has dimension. You always have an eye for detail and even placed a pearl on either side of the eyelets to soften the look. Clever how you added just a touch of bling on the other side of the card to balance the visual weight of the card. You are truly a professional designer, Lisa. I admire your work. Hope you win some of the challenges, but even if you don't--you are still a winner in my eyes.

Leider habe ich so eine Schneideschablone nicht, um die Karte nachzuarbeiten. Aber meine Tag-Stanze wird die Woche noch kommen.
