Monday Montage #17



Best thing about Monday??? Why, Monday Montage, of course!! And you are NOT gonna be disappointed with what the girls have come up with this week ... so much beautiful FUN stuff!!




I haven't done a tri-fold-down type of card for quite a while. The base of this card is made with a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP that is 4.25" x 12" ... it is scored at 3 1/2" and 9", which creates a standard, A2-sized card (4.25" x 5.5"). I love this paper WAY more than I had thought I would when all I could see was a photo of it ... the colors and patterns are SO MUCH FUN!!




I made a "belly band" to go around the middle ... all but one of the flowers/embellishments are attached directly to the belly band, so when you slide it off and open up the card, this is what ya get ...

And here's the belly band up close ... I wish we had a whole BUNCH of these woodcut sentiments (this "thank you" is from the March Paper Pumpkin Kit ... SUPER LOVE THIS!)!

Stamps:  Flower Shop, Petite Petals
Paper:  Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Watercolor Wonder DSP
Ink:  Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Pansy Punch, Petite Pansy Punch, Burlap Ribbon, Large Scallop Edgelits Die, "Thank You" Woodcut (March 2014 Paper Pumpkin)
