Greenhouse Gala Trifold Card

Wow! I can't believe a whole week has gone by since my last post. Where has the time gone??? Needless to say, life has gotten a little busier lately. I had forgotten just how much time a little baby takes to tend. Add in a birthday for my daughter, 4 classes, and a workshop and I don't know which end is up most days. Whew.... I'm hoping things get a little bit easier as time goes on. Anyway, I have a card to share from classes last week. It uses new stamps, new cardstock colors and a lovely new Designer Paper that I just luv, luv, LUV! It's so pretty and the colors are yummy. Hope you give them a try.

Stamps: Friends Never Fade, Perfect Punches, French Filigree Background, and On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, and Whisper White with Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper
Ink: Early Espresso and Marina Mist
Accessories: Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Wide Oval Punch, and Dimensionals

The card looks like any other until you start to open it up. Don't you like this extra little flap that goes around to the inside of the card? Oh, I forgot that I added an extra flourish with Marina Mist on the bottom left corner of the Pear Pizzazz layer. It just added a nice little touch.
How do you like the French Filigree background with the Designer Paper? I thought it was an elegant touch to dress it up a bit.
Hopefully it won't take me a week to get back with you all. Today was my Punchy Class so I have 3 projects from that I'd like to share with you. Check back when you get a chance, and I promise I'll get back here as often as I can.

khemosabiWhat a great idea! Simple, but it adds a lot to the finished card. I'm looking forward to meeting you when you come down our way. Kristy Tyra
