Folded Card For June Card Challenge

I made this card for the Michael Strong's Yahoo group Folded Card challenge.

You can enlarge each photo by clicking on it.

The central flower was made of old book pages (a nice way to re-use them), punched out with a scalloped circle punch. Each petal was folded 4 times.

After folding all the petals I glued them to each other.

I stamped Michael Strong's Cloisonné Flower stamp with Stazon ink on a transparency sheet, and carefully cut it with nail scissors.

I attached the transparent flower to the folded flower with a flocked brad.

The whole flower was glued 3D for extra dimension.

To decorate the corners I added 2 pairs of flourish die cuts made of black textured CS.

Each one of them was set in an opposite direction to create a double-flourish corner embellishment, accented with a pearl.

The purple ribbon was inserted into a piece of black CS which was punched with a simple office binder.

I also used light blue CS, a patterned paper with script from my stash, and pearls all over.

Now go figure out how many folds there are in one flower…

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly

  5. What a wonderful card, Dorly.
    I love the background, but I like the idea of folding pages of an old book as a flower too!
