Sun Kissed Fleur Lever Card

Good Friday morning, Friends!  This week has certainly flown by.  Today, I’d like to share with you another card I made with the new Sun Kissed Fleur collection from Heartfelt Creations.  I have to tell you, I am in love with the colors in this collection.  And the new die that lets you cut 10 flowers and 2 leaves with just one pass through your machine is such a time saver.  So, without further ado, behold, the lever card!

009 (2) Click on photo for larger image…there are a lot of details in this lovely little lever card!

This is what I call an “engineered” card.  The base is made from one sheet of paper that has been scored, folded and cut to create a card with lots of different sized surfaces, apertures and the ability to stand on its own. Even though the design of the lever card looks complicated, it’s actually a simple design.   You can find a tutorial here. I changed the size of my card, and I changed where I made the cuts…just to be different.  Here’s how the lever card looks when it is shut:

011 (2) It collapses on itself to become a normal 5×7″ card.  Isn’t that fun?

016 (2) Here it is again, laid out flat.  So, you can see, it’s easy to work on.  Of course, I added stitching around the dark blue panels.  And of course, I popped things up on foam.  I love how the stamping in white just pops off the card. You can find the full tutorial for this card over on the Heartfelt Creations blog this week.  I share all the details of how I created this fun, interactive card. Plus, there’s loads of inspiration from the other members of the design team to be found there, so it’s really worth a look.

That’s it for me today, folks.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend with time to relax, time to play, and time to spend with the people you love.  If you have time to leave me a comment, that would be great, too!  LOL  You know your comments make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers. Until next time,

Cheerio,

kathy

    Hey, my dahling! This is wonderful. I have always wanted to make a card with this type of fold, but never have. I have a stack of ideas for them, and will add yours to the pile. One day I hope to tackle it! This is stunning work.
