Stippled Roses Double Z-Fold Mother's Day Card. Touches of Ink Blog Hop February 2024

  Good Evening Everyone,

Today I'm hopping with the fabulous Touches of Ink ladies. We hop once a month without a set theme, just the direction to create focusing on a Suite or a Bundle.

I'm using the Stippled Roses set and the coordinating Softly Stippled DSP from our Sale-a-Bration offering. I decided to Keep the 'bones' of the card neutral and Monotone in Wild Wheat, then I added a pop of colour to the black and white roses print with my blends.

I think this makes a lovely Mother's Day Card, what you do you think?

Fold and burnish both pieces of Wild Wheat card stock, making sure you create a Z shape ( fold in half and then back on itself).

Colour in the fussy cut roses using Granny Apple Green & Bubble Bath Stampin Blends. 

Adhere two of them to the 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of DSP and the remaining two to the Basic White panel. Pop them in opposite corners, and trim off any overhanging Pattern.

Now add all the DSP  and white card to the bases. Put the basic white onto the back of the card, and then you will find that all the rest just fit in one place so it's pretty easy to find their homes. 

Adhere the smaller z fold to the larger one, the larger piece has the bigger back panel to the right, the smaller piece leads with the larger panel. Add liquid glue to the back of the smallest panel on the small z fold piece and adhere to the centre of the larger back panel.

Now, fold all the pieces down, don't worry some to the edges will overlap - then add adhesive to the front piece of the smaller z, making sure you only add adhesive to the section that will be stuck to the other piece, otherwise you will just make a mess and stick it all closed!!

Stamp the Sentiment in Wild Wheat ink onto a scrap of Basic WHite card and cut out with the 2" circle punch, and cut a 2 3/8" circle from a scrap of Wild Wheat card then layer these together.

Place this into the centre of the front panel with dimensionals.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. Please take a few minutes to continue through the hop - these ladies are incredibly talented and you will be sure to get a lot of inspiration from them. Janice from JazzleDazzle Crafts is next.
