Hello Monday! It's What Will You Stamp? time again, this week we are showcasing one of the new 2016-2017 catalogue stamp sets - Falling Flowers.
The great thing about resizing this card is that it means that you can get 2 Z-fold cards from 1 piece of A4 card stock, AND you don't need to make a custom size envelope - Win, Win!
To do this I measured down 14.5 cm on one side on an A4 sheet of card stock and measured up 14.5 cm on the other side to create the diagonal, then cut with my trimmer, repeating with Whisper White, here is what the cut looks like before scoring and adding the flowers:
Score your card at 9.9 cm, turn and score at 9.9.cm again from the other end to create the folds. I trimmed 0.4 cm from the bottom of the Whisper White layer and cut the layers accordingly - I found it easier to cut the diagonal on a full panel of Whisper White then create the layering panels rather than cut the diagonal from strips of 9.5 cm card stock.
I also challenged myself to use all of the 2016-2018 In Colours for colouring this card, Dapper Denim was interesting as there are not many blue flowers, so I blended Sweet Sugarplum to create a beautiful deep purple!
A number of viewers have ask if the flowers were fussy cut when I posted my other card, I am glad to say they are not, Falling Flowers is available as a bundle with the May Flowers Framlits Dies so you have 7 wonderful framelits to cut your stamped flowers plus 3 framelits to cut beautifully delicate flowers and leaves - I will be using these 3 in a project to come!
