Hydrangea Haven You Make Me Smile Cards
I designed a classic joy-fold style card for today's cards to spotlight the pretty hydrangea bloom and lovely bundle details.

Background Basics—This joy-fold card has a two-part Highland Heather card base: 8-1/4" x 4-1/4", scored at 5-1/2" and 8" x 3", scored at 4".  On the larger card base, I adhered a 2-1/2" x 4" piece of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to the front panel and a 5-1/4" x 4" Misty Moonlight piece to the inside. That inside piece was embossed with the soon-to-retire Subtle Embossing Folder.

Card Front Background—I inked the splotch image from Hydrangea Haven in Highland Heather, stamped off once, then stamped onto a 3-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Basic White. I stamped a Hydrangea Haven sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black over the top and adhered it to the front panel of the smaller card base. Remember that this piece opens to the right, opposite of a normal card. I mounted that card onto the inside back of the first card base.
Hydrangea Focal Point—I stamped the Hydrangea Haven flower outline in Memento Black onto scrap Basic White. I used the coordinating two-step solid images to fill in the Pear Pizzazz color for the leaves and the Seaside Spray color for the flower. Then, I used the Hydrangea Dies to cut out the image and I popped it up with Dimensionals, trimming the stem flush with the edge of the card.
Finishing Touches—I die-cut the small Seaside Spray petal die-cuts using the Hydrangea Dies, attached them with Glue Dots and bent the petals a little. I topped each of them with a Pearl Jewel. Perfectly sweet!

Inside Details—There are plenty of Hydrangea Haven sentiments from which to choose and I stamped this one in Memento Black. I also added some two-step flowers with Memento Black outlines and Seaside Spray fills. I love how these images mimic the die-cut flowers on the card front!

Two Cool—My second card begins with Blushing Bride card bases. I decorated the front panel with another pattern from Hydrangea Hill DSP and the inside with a Subtle embossed Rococo Rose layer.

Card Front Décor—This time, I stamped the splotch in Blushing Bride, stamped off once. The Hydrangea Haven bloom is inked in Petal Pink and the smaller flower die-cuts are also in Petal Pink. Beautiful!
I'd Love To Hear From You!
