Beautiful Bloom Right Angle Fun Fold ~ CCMC505, SUOC197, ATSM287

Hello stampers!  It's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Thursday and it's color week!  Our colors are Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach (and it's retiring!), and Old Olive.

I've seen a few of these diagonal or right angle fun fold cards floating around the internet and thought they looked fun and simple to create.  Here's a good video explaining how to make the cuts and score lines. It's really very simple and makes a good impact for something different than your regular old fold!  
I used {Birthday Blooms} colored with my light and dark Calypso Coral Blends markers as well as the light Pumpkin Pie, which really resembles Peekaboo Peach.  I absolutely love the depth of color you can achieve with these markers and you don't have to be an artist at all to make it look good!  Because I used my Blends markers I'm also entering my card into Addicted to Stamps and More make your mark challenge 287.  I'm also sharing my card in the SUO Favorite Floral Challenge #197.  I don't think there's a prettier flower in the whole catalog than this one!  I've seen it colored up so many ways, and each one is always beautiful!
I paired my flower with a couple oval circles, the white one is from the stitched dies and the black one is regular.  I popped the flower up on dimesionals, but not before I added a loop of silver sequin trim and mini black sequin trim.  The DSP is from the Petal Passion series.  

I layered a 4" x 5 1/4" white piece on the inside and stamped it with the lone flower from {Birthday Blooms} and then stamped a nice sentiment.  I colored the inside flower with the same blends as the outside flower.

I hope you'll be able to join us at CCMC this week for our latest color challenge.  Make sure to hop over to the main challenge blog and check out the other designers creations!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

  2. Oh my goodness, Jenny, this is gorgeous. The beautifully colored flower pops off the black and white polka dots and the fun fold is unexpected and fun. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

  3. One of my all time favourite flowers! And coloured to perfection - it looks amazing with the dynamic black and white backgrouns. This really is an awesome flower stamp set, and totally perfect for our challenge this time. So glad you joined in the fun with us as SUO Challenges
