Floral fancy fold

Hi everyone, hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
It's 80 degrees here in Central FL today, Love it!!
I was so enamored of this napkin fold card I made two of them. Actually, this was the first one I folded and started punching the edges with the Martha Stewart double arches punch around the page must be careful of the thickness of the card stock one chooses...LOL! Took awhile to finish the edges, so I switched and worked on the Hearts a Flutter card.  Again, I've taken several pics to try to show the various layers and elements of this type of card. All that's left is to add a sentiment and mail to some lucky person.

The blue triangles were embossed and lightly brushed with cement Versafine ink.

 (full open)

The inside panels were faux stitched using the Cutterbee Bug and a black Micron pen.


And finally, a close up of the flowers. The metal ones are made out of a thin sheet of tin inked with copper StayzOn, music was stamped with Iris StayzOn. The top right flower was inked with Rusty Hinge distress ink, sprayed with copper Liquid Pearls Mists and Sunflower Mists, then the edges were distressed with a bit of vintage photo. The leaves and brackets are: Bella Rose and a fern punch.

You can find the tutorial links for this napkin fold card on my Hearts a Flutter post, here.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the weekend.
