Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Simply Blessed Card Folio
Hello, Friends! Happy Monday! I’m just popping in real quick today with a little bit of eye candy to start your week off on a sweet note. This Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Simply Blessed Card Folio has been sitting in my photo files, patiently waiting to be shared. Today is the day!
I love the soft peach and green tones of this fresh and fun card. Since I used the Collector’s Essential Kit, I had all the stickers,chippies, washi tape and the matching cardstock to work with. I love it when everything matches!
Die cut layers are made using Spellbinder’s Lacey Squares Dies (retired). The bow is tied with RRR 1/2″ Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon. This has been a real “go to” ribbon for me this spring.
TIP: Dry brush Little Birdie Succulents (Check AC Moore) with Ivory Chalk paint. This gives them a more organic look. Use this simple technique whenever you need to make different colored flowers “match.” it works like a charm!
Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Simply Blessed Card Folio: A Peek Inside
TIP: Make a quick and easy pocket by cutting your designer paper 3″ longer than your card base. Then score at 3″, fold and adhere the sides. Instant pocket!
TIP: Use your scraps! The top half of this card is made by layering up bits and pieces of patterned papers that flowed well together. Even the border pieces were made with scraps. And by leaving the top edge open on the bottom border, I created a handy shallow pocket to hold that cutie patootie magnet.
Now, fold a scrap of black cardstock from the Essential Collection kit to make this nifty gift wallet. Then line it with more scraps of your designer paper. You can get a LOT of mileage from a collection kit by using your scraps in this way.
Next, fill it with a little tea bag and honey stick treat. These cool honey sticks were atTuesday Morning. I always seem to find the neatest stuff in that store. It’s like my personal playground, and a very dangerous place for me to visit!
