Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop



How fun - today I a participating in a brand new blog hop organised by Angie McKenzie called All Around the World on Wednesday! 

We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world here to share our love stamps, ink and paper. 

I hope you are inspired as much as I am with all the talent on offer. 

The theme is 'all things crafty' and I chose to share a fun fold card that I made.  

I would be lost without papercrafting, not only for the craft itself but also the friends I have made all over the world. In these crazy times we are experiencing right now it is so nice to know that I can reach out to these people and feel inspired, loved and certainly not alone.

So onto my card! I am using some of my favourite Stampin' Up! items - blends, rhinestones, wink of stella and polka dot ribbon. 

The design is called an Overlay Fun Fold Card. I originally saw it demonstrated on youtube by Lisa Curcio @ Lisa's Stamp Studio. It really easy to do - just hard to photograph! 

I coloured the large Magnolia flower with both light and dark flirty flamingo blends and the leaves with light and dark old olive. I then added a liberal dose of wink of stella everywhere. After diecutting the magnolia I trimmed off the stem and one of the leaves which I re-attached underneath when I added it to the card base.
