Another Scrappy Tri-fold Card

Hi there, again! I actually posted this card on Stampin Inspirations (my other blog site) by error. . .how annoying! I guess that is the hazard of having two blog sites.

This card do not qualify as a "rubber stamped" creation so I can't post it on Stampin Inspirations.

Anyway. . .don't forget to scroll down to view another Tri-fold scrappy card I posted earlier today. It's a slightly different flap so be sure to check it out.

The card base for this card actually came from the "Close to My Heart" card kit "Floral Impression" which is now retired. With my previous card, I had traced one of the card base that came with the card kit and created my own card using a designer paper.

Why buy a card kit when I make my own cards? Well, some card kits come with unusual folds or shape or something that can be used as templates for future cards that you make. It sure beats trying to create the folds or shapes yourself. LOL!

The card base and the sentiment sticker is from the card kit but it won't feel like I created the card myself if I don't add a little something to the card that I made myself so. . .again, like my previous card, I drew the large flower using my Copic Multi-liner and Markers and added a button for an added dimension.

Here is a close up of the flower.

Card Recipe:
Paper: Close to My Heart "Floral Impression"
Ink: SU True Thyme, Lavender Lace, Copic Multi-liner and Markers
Accessories: Foo-la-la buttons, Organdy Ribbon
