Best of Flowers – Oval Bouquet Gate Fold Card

Here is the final card design from my March Best of Flowers card kit for my club.  It's a fun gate-fold card created from a piece of 5-1/2" x 8" Very Vanilla card stock, scored at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8". 

I added 2" x 5-3/8"strips of Tea For Two Designer Series Paper to each front panel to create a pretty patterned background.

The Ovals Collection Framelits were used to make the focal point.  I stamped the Best of Flowers bouquet images in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla, then centered the oval die to cut.  It's layered on a So Saffron oval that's a couple sizes bigger and pierced with the help of the Occasions Piercing Pack.

I colored the images with Markers in coordinating colors: So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade. 

I thought the Calypso Coral Baker's Twine bow added just the right touch.  It's adhered with a dab of Multipurpose Glue.

The Oh, Hello sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso on scrap Very Vanilla, then punched out with the Curly Label Punch.  I adhered it to the right front panel with Dimensionals, slightly overlapping the oval embellishment as a way to keep it closed.

You know me…I had to do two cool versions (one to keep, one to give), but it wasn't much different than the first.  I colored the flowers with more Bashful Blue this time, changed the sentiment to one from Bloomin' Marvelous (retired), and added the bow to the sentiment.

      1. My guess for the April it will be Best Of Weddings. We are getting close to the wedding season and we need to get our wedding cards made. I hope I am right so I have a chance to win. I love the Wedding Season. Thanks
