I have created this special card today in honor of my late mother and my step-mom. My mother LOVED yellow roses and my step-mom loves them all but particularly pink ones. I love how this tri-fold card shows off the beautiful roses on each turn of the page. Here’s how I created it!
You will need one sheet of crumb cake cardstock cut at 5 1/2″ on the landscape side. Score both at 4 1/4″. You will need both pieces to create this card.
Start with one piece of the cardstock and line it up on the portrait side on your Stampin trimmer. Line the end up to 4″ and cut down to the score line with your cutting blade. Repeat this on the other piece of cardstock and cut at 3″ down to the score line. Take your paper snips and cut down the score line to where you have made your 3 or 4″ cut. (The video will probably make this clearer…) Before you adhere your cards together stamp the front sections of your card with the Hardwood background stamp and crumb cake ink. You now have the two pieces you will need to adhere together. Adhere the pieces together with Tombow multi-purpose glue so that the front of the card has the 3″ panel in the front and the 4″ panel behind it.
Now you can stamp 5 of the rose images from Picture Perfect. I stamped the yellow roses in So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry, in that order. The pink roses were stamped with Blushing Bride (stamp off on the first stamp) and Watermelon Wonder. Fussy cut them out all the way to the edge of the image. I punched out the leaves on the Bird Builder Punch with Mossy Meadow cardstock, around 5 or 6.
I stamped another yellow rose on my inside piece of whisper white cardstock measuring 4″ by 3 3/4″ down towards the bottom. I then added my sentiment in Watermelon Wonder and adhered to the inside of the card.
Starting on the top of the inside panel, I adhered a rose, a leave and a butterfly cut in Gold Glimmer cardstock with the bold Butterfly Framelits. At the top of the 4″ panel, I adhered a yellow and pink rose with leaves. And to finish off the front of the card, I adhered another yellow and pink rose, leaves and a butterfly. I then used Early Expresso ink to stamp the sentiment from Picture Perfect on the front lower panel of this card. Love it~
I also gave this card a little pizzaz and added Clear Wink of Stella brush to all roses. Sooo pretty!
