A Funky Fold Card for the PPA84

This week at the Pals - http://www.palspaperarts.com/ – its Inspiration-Spring/Easter week. I found this card style before Christmas  liked it and thought of using it for this challenge. 

My directions were hand written (yikes!), which tells me I was out of ink in the printer, and I had one pattern already made.  I should have made this card right then but, here it is March and I am just getting around to it.  Move fast don’t I!!!  Ever try to pour molasses outside in the dead of winter?  That’s me!! *smile*

Without further ado……..

The reason I liked this card style was the fact that the middle section gives you a lot more room for your focal point.  The card begins with 6x12 piece of card stock. 

I began with the colors Daffodil Delight, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso.  I ran each piece of D. Delight thru the Big Shot using the wood grain textured plate and sponging them with More Mustard.  Using the scalloped edge border punch I cut the pieces that were to go on top. 

You can find out how to cut the center square piece and additional sizes from a tutorial found here:   http://www.stampinpretty.com/  Mary would be glad to have you visit her!

I made the flower from the small oval and scalloped oval punches.  Of course I just can’t make a flower without the two step bird punch that’s for sure.  This middle section is popped up with dimensionals.  Another thing I love is the Movers and Shapers, do you notice how perfectly it frames your Modern Label punch?  And what would a card be without a little bling. *smile* Bring on the gold half pearls…..

It was difficult to get a picture of the inside in its entirety (that suited me to post), but I think you can get the idea looking here….

What a stunner, Linda, I love everything about this bright Springy card! TFS; the only bad thing about Blogland is you can spend HOURS cruising through but what wonderful scenery! Have a great day, Linda.
