It’s another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop, and today we’re making a fun fold. I’m using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle and products from the Waves of The Ocean Collection to make my card.
Leonie Schroder, my friend and fearless leader of the Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop, challenged me to make an Angled Trifold card for today’s hop. This card starts with a larger than usual piece of cardstock (5 1/2 x 11 inches) so, you can only get one from an 8 1/2 x 11-inch piece. But, once it’s scored, snipped and folded, it fits in a standard medium envelope.
Ever since Russia invaded their county, the people of Ukraine have been in my thoughts and prayers. The National Flower of Ukraine is the sunflower, and the colors of the flag are blue and yellow, so I’ve been wanting to make a card with these images and colors. This card fold was the perfect opportunity to do so.
Celebrate Sunflowers and Waves of the Ocean
I used the dies from the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle to cut the yellow base sunflower and green leaf from the Waves of the Ocean DSP. Next, I cut the detailed sunflower outline from the Blue Foils, also from the Waves of the Ocean Collection. I used Coastal Cabana cardstock for the detailed leaf die. For the detailed sunflower and leaf, I backed the cardstock with adhesive sheets before cutting, so I didn’t need to use glue on such a detailed die cut.
The right flap of the card is decorated with another of the papers from the Waves of the Ocean DSP. This paper is gorgeous!!! The left flap is embossed with one of the folders from the Meadown Moments Embossing Folder set.
For the inside, I chose stamps from the Grassy Grove stamp set. I thought the wording was perfect for my purpose. I used Pacific Point ink for these and the smaller sunflower in the corner.
Finally, to finish this card, I added a multi-loop white twine bow and Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels.
