Sweet Friend Floral Joy Fold Card with Pink & Main

Monday, April 1, 2024

I've got another Pink & Main project to share with you today! (Can you believe that it's APRIL?!) The Sakura Blooms stamp set is so pretty but I decided to color them in purple rather than cherry blossom pink. I brought in some mint colors with the foil and ink blending and I made my own stone looking cardstock to meet the requirements for Craft Roulette this past Friday!

First I stamped and colored my images, then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I'm realizing now that I'm writing this blog post, I forgot to add my white highlights! I'll probably add them later because those cheeks are just calling for little white highlight dots... I foiled my Foible and with a mint foil from my stash and ink blended green inks to give a pretty, mint background.

I trimmed my foiled background to 3x4" and adhered it to a mini purple card that is 3-1/4x4-1/4" when scored and folded. I have the fold of the card on the right because I'm going to use it as a joy fold card! My grey cardstock is A2 in size and I trimmed the front of the card to be 3-1.2" wide for the joy fold. I glued my purple mini card to the middle of the grey card base.

My images are glued do white card front with liquid adhesive and thin 1mm foam. I have all of the parameters so far except for "stone" so I used alcohol markers to make a stippling pattern to give a stone look to the grey cardstock. I had a lot of fun make this style of card and I hope it brings you some inspiration today!
