Best Wishes...

I've been trying to do a couple of different folds for cards.  This is a normal fold, but with the top showing a little of the inside.

Front -
Card Base - Rose Red Cardstock - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10.5cm. Score & Fold in half
Layer 1 - Daffodil Delight Cardstock - 5 1/8" x 4" or 13cm x 10cm.  Front only - Measure & cut 1/2" or 2cm from top of card - as per photo
Layer 2 - DSP - 5" x 3 7/8' or 12.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - Tempting Turquoise Cardstock - 2" x 4" or 5.5cm x 10cm
Layer 4 - Daffodil Delight Cardstock - 2 1/2" x 2" or 6.5cm x 5cm
Layer 5 - Whisper White Cardstock - 2 3/8" x 1 7/8" or 6cm x 4.5cm

I punched the edge of Tempting Turquoise using the Edge Punch & adhered this piece to the DSP before adhering to Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  I tied a piece of Satin Ribbon along the top edge of Tempting Turquoise & tied a bow on the RHS.  I then adhered the whole lot to the front of the Base Card.

I stamped my sentiment directly onto Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Black Ink & adhered to the Daffodil Delight Cardstock, prior to adhering to the front of the card.

I adhered a button to small flower & adhered to bottom of card.  I then adhered small flower to a larger flower & placed over the punched leaves.  I then stuck a bigger button to the centre. 

Inside -
I run a piece of Daffodil Yellow Cardstock through the Bigshot using an Embossing Folder.  This was adhered to the inside of the base card.  I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock & adhered this piece to the Daffodil Yellow.  I cut & punched the edge of a piece of DSP & adhered to the bottom of Whisper White Cardstock.

To finish off, I added 3 Basic Pearls top RHS of card.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Short & Sweet
Ink - Basic Black
Cardstock - Rose Red, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive
DSP - Island Oasis
Punches - Eyelet Border, 2-Step Bird Extra-Large
Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots
Ribbon - Satin - Daffodil Yellow
Accessories - Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive, Bigshot, Basic Pearls
Non-SU - Buttons

Until next time, Enjoy!

I love the idea of showing some of the inside of the card on the front. What a clever idea. The front of the card is stunning. I love the clean crisp lines and the white flowers. Just gorgeous.
