Petal Promenade Petal Fold Cards
The gorgeous floral papers from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper are perfect for beautiful cards for special occasions!  The patterns are actual photos of real flowers in the most amazing colors!  Check out this cool video to see the process for making this paper: The Making of Petal Promenade DSP.
Today's petal fold cards are a lovely way to send best wishes for a bridal shower, wedding, anniversary, or birthday. It's just big enough to add a gift card, too!

Card Basics—I love that this card only uses a 6"x 6" quarter sheet of Petal Promenade DSP, so you can get 4 cards from each sheet!  The final dimensions of the card is 3-3/4" x 3-3/4", so it fits nicely into a standard A2 Medium Envelope.

The card is secured closed with Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  It's essentially a mini envelope and is created with the Envelope Punch Board.

Creating The Card—Put the first edge of the paper in the Envelope Punch Board at the 3" mark, then punch down and score along the diagonal line with the bone folder included with the board.  Next, you'll rotate the paper, line up the score line with the "point" on the Envelope Punch Board, then punch and score.  Rotate and repeat for the next two sides, then simply fold on the score lines to create the Petal Fold card style.  Learn more about the Envelope Punch Board.
Inside Layer—I stamped the Enjoy Life sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 3" x 3" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched each corner with a decorative accent using the Detailed Trio Punch, then layered it onto a 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Melon Mambo so the color peeks through!  It's adhered to the center of the petal fold card with SNAIL.

Two Cool—I stamped the Enjoy Life sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 2-1/8" diameter circle die-cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.  It's popped up onto a 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" diameter Melon Mambo circle, then popped up again onto a Pearlized Doily.  I wrapped the Tulle Ribbon around the card first, then added the sentiment to the left flap with more Dimensionals.
TIP: You may want to add a white circle die-cut to the back of the doily, so the adhesive doesn't show through on the back when you open the card.
Finishing Touches—I finished by tying the ribbon into a bow and adding a single coordinating Artisan Pearl.  So sweet!

Two Cool—For the second project, my intention was to create a bigger card that would still fit onto a Medium Envelope, but I measured incorrectly. It ended up being 4-3/8" x 4-3/8", so it's just a little too big for the envelope.  If you find the final size you want on the chart right on the Envelope Punch Board, and use the correct measurements, you'll be able to make your petal fold card in any size you desire!  Try it!

Lovely Layers—I used a different pattern from the Petal Promenade DSP and die-cut a Calypso Coral circle to match.  The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday.  Otherwise the outside is the same.

Inside The Card—The inside sentiment is also from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.  The Whisper White layer is 3-1/2" square and the Calypso Coral mat is 3-3/4" square.  I'm loving this fun-fold card for something a little different!  Too Cool!

  1. I don’t care for the flowers on “Petal Promenade”…too much ! I would rather stamp my flowers and use the DSP for background. The PP DSP is just too busy for me or “old ladyish” (is this a word)?

  2. LOVE this cahd (new englandese)! And the idea.Then again I always love what you create! Thanks for still sharing the measurments.
