The World Is A Better Place

Hi Friends!

As I mentioned in previous posts, I enjoy participating in online challenges created this card for Ann's #PP498 “Fun & Fancy Folds” Challenge at The Paper Players using the retired Stampin’ Up! People Like You stamp set.

This is another stamp that I have not used in ages and thought it would be perfect for this special fold challenge.

I modified the SC67 Sketch from Splitcoaststampers a bit for the layout (the #2 panel is a bit larger than the original sketch) and am also participating with The Flower Challenge #46 “Summer/Winter” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so, gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Score and fold a 5 ½” x 9 ¼”piece of cardstock at 2 ½” on both ends. Fold the panel to create the gate fold.

Emboss a 4 ¼” x 5 ¼” piece of white cardstock with a French Script embossing folder, cut into two panels and mount onto the front folds.

Add a strip of black cardstock to lengthen the front panels and square up the edges (you may not need to do this, but unfortunately I did, lol!) :-)

Ink the People Like You stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp onto a piece of white alcohol-friendly cardstock and color the image with alcohol markers. Add a few white highlights to the flower centers using an extra fine white paint pen.

Die cut the floral panel with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge. 

Adhere the panel onto the front of the card to overlap the front panels.

Ink/Mediums: Memento™ Tuxedo Black; Arteza™ Alcohol Markers- Aqua, Bright Pink, Light Gray, Black, Green; Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen
