Double Point Fold Hello Card


Today I'm sharing a double point fold card I created by using this tutorial. I really like how easy this was to put together and how nice it looked when it was finished. The front panel opens from the bottom and the message is underneath.
I started with some DCWV papers and some pastel pink card stock, adding a die-cut butterfly that was enhanced with some Copics to give it a little depth of color, then covered with clear wink of stella to give it a shimmering sparkle. The "Hello" sentiment is a die from Taylored Expressions, cut and layered several times and covered with glossy accents.

I will enter this into the following challenges:


Double D Challenge - saying "hello"

Butterfly Challenge #137 - I took the color "tea Rose" from the wheel and two of something - different patterned papers

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is a great one!

OK so I've just sat here looking at your card thinking... how lol. It's like a frame but it's a card, it's pretty super duper. I like the mix of script with dots then that big smack of pink from the butterfly, it's very stylish x
