Wow im so excited I managed to do a fancy fold card ...well its fancy to me anyway. I just love how this has a mini album feel, you could even put a photo inside that would be a nice touch. The card is interactive of a sort because the way it opens to reveal the fantastic memories and more quote and , and the loosely clipped smaller card invites the recipient to touch feel and interact with the card. I love it.
All it is in reality is two cards in different sizes which interlock its a very simple idea but looks really great. The stunning brightCalypso coral against the cool pool party just is a stunning colour combo that looks so vibrant but yet soft and pretty.
The Graceful garden stamp used on this project is currently my favourite its just beautiful and totally versatile for birthdays, thank you cards, not cards or a just because card. i also think it would be fantastic used along side the Memories and more card pack when doing your memory keeping or scrapbook page layouts. A truly beautiful suite.
There is a full step by step Youtube tutorial on this project for you to follow along to. A full list of products used is below click the photos to go direct to the shop to browse. Measurements are also below. So grab a brew ...get comfy and watch the video ... Happy Stamping xx Amanda
