Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons Card Folio
Hello, Friends! Don’t you just love lemons? They take center stage on this Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons card folio. I’ve layered up pretty papers with my Amazing Paper Grace Bella Luce Oval dies to create this summery card confection.
TIP: Create realistic looking texture and dimension on your fussy cuts. Place the fussy cut face down on a foam mat. Then use a large ball stylus to gently round the edges and center of the fruit and the foliage. This actually wrinkles the paper a bit, and makes the lemons pop off the page.
Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons Card Folio: Tips and Tricks
Gold foil accents in the 12×12 Fruit Paradise Pad add a touch of elegance to this card design. I like to save those foiled papers sparingly. So the base layers of this card are made with papers from the Fruit Paradise A4 Pad. This saves me money, and I can use that glamorous foiled paper where it will be seen!
TIP: Use a “triangle” in your card design whenever you can. It helps to move the eye around your creation so that all the elements will be seen. On this card, I created a triangle with the placement of my flowers. Try this trick next time you are struggling with card composition. It really works!
Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons Card Folio: A Peek Inside
Creating a box pocket inside the card allows you to tuck in some lovely goodies. And the little sentiment pocket on the top of the card is a great place to add a greeting or a gift card. Now your card doubles as a gift!
I’ve been on the search for more of these charming vintage silver plate spoons. This lovely teaspoon has been polished up and made party-ready. The diamond shape is the smallest die i the Bella Luce Oval Die set. Die cut and emboss for maximum impact. Then shade the raised edges lightly with a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The large packet is imported vanilla custard tea biscuits to accompany the tea and honey stick.
You simply have to have Lemon Tea with a lemon themed card! This little tea wallet is so sweet!
