Color & Contour Bay Window Card

It’s one of my favorite folds – and one of my favorite stamp sets! Perfect combination, in my opinion – haha. I’m also some outgoing colors – Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen.

Like I mentioned, this is one of my favorite fun folds – I’ve posted before. Check them out here.

Start with a card base cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″. On the 11″ side, score at 3/8″, 1 7/8″, 3 5/8″, 5 1/8″, and 5 1/2″. You’ll need some designer series paper for the front and inside. Cut (2) pieces at 4 1/8″ x 1 3/8″ and (2) 4 1/8″ x 1 5/8″. You’ll need 2 of the smaller pieces and 1 larger piece for the front and 1 larger piece for the inside. The inside piece of DSP will cover the right edge of your writing panel (this is a Basic White piece cut at the standard 4″ x 5 1/4″).

For this card, I stamped some speckles from this stamp set in Soft Succulent on a piece of Soft Succulent card stock – the sentiment over that in Evening Evergreen. I punched this out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. Run a piece of Stampin’ Seal along the back of this sentiment piece and affix a 7 inch length of Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon. Affix this whole piece to the center of the card front.

To prop the card open, stamp the larger flower piece in Evening Evergreen on a piece of Soft Succulent card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die. Go over this with some Wink of Stella for some sparkle. Affix this to the inside of the card (on the right side) using some Dimensionals. When open, the 3/8″ inch section of the card front fits snugly under the flower.

Have you used the Dry Brushed Metallic Paper yet? You should get some – it’s awesome!
