Botanical Blooms

Botanical  Blooms Flap Fold Card

To make the card above, I started with a piece of 8 1/2 " x 11 " Cajun Craze cardstock. I scored it in the landscape position at 5 1/2 " and then I  scored it in the portrait position at 4 1/4". This will give you 2 card bases. Use one, save one for another card.

I trimmed off  2¼" from the top front of the card leaving a 2" flap in the front.

I  matted a piece of 4" x 5¼" Whisper White cardstock on the inside and a piece of1¾" x 5¼" Designer Series Paper(DSP) on the front panel after I rounded the corners on the right side of the DSP. I also rounded the one side of the flap.

I made a bunch of flowers using the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies. I used the card stock that coordinates with the DSP. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to coordinate because they list the coordinating colors on the paper package and in the catalog. I stamped the flower in the center with the coordinating stamp set, Botanical Blooms.

I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the top part of the card in Cajun Craze. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set. 

Inside the card I added a piece of Botanical Gardens Washi Tape.
