This card has been living in my head for a few weeks. I wanted to make a simple fun fold card and I liked the idea of the double point cards. The points on those cards always appeared too short and stubby to my eye. So I set out to design one that was more pleasing to my eye, and this is what I came up with. A single longer point is, as I see it, a bit more elegant. The idea of the Designer Series Paper that looked floral had a real appeal. As you can see, any designer series paper will make this design work. I love the look of this one and am going to try some other floral paper to work with. There are a few kits available for this card, it is located on the Shop With Me section of my blog under Kits to Go. (when they are gone they are gone.)
On the second version, the one made in the video I used our stitched greenery die on the white panel on the front of the card, and I really like the textured effect. It was interesting to me that you could stamp that paper both before and after using the stitched greenery die. I hope you give this a try.
