Instructions

Cut blue cardstock to 7"h x 12"w
and score at 2", 4", 8" & 10".

Cut your 2 slits - bottom one is at 2" h and top one is 1.75" h, and cut between the first score line at the 2" mark and the last score line at the 10" mark.

NOTE: This card is totally adaptable to any size you want. Whatever length of cardstock you have, just divide the length by 6, (needless to say, math challenged people should stick with even numbers divisible by 6 like 6" 9" or 12" etc). You can use any height for your finished card, as long as there are 2 cut lines going from the 1st score to the last score lines.

M= mountain fold   V= valley fold

Folding the top row, the first fold is M then V then M

The middle row is the opposite, first is a V (it's covered by the white cardstock now which hides the crease), then M, then another V

The bottom row is the same as the first row. (M-V-M)
This card is not creased along the last score line on the top and bottom row, only on the middle row.

Now push the folds as they've been creased to close the card. Burnish the creases.

Emboss a full sheet of thin white cardstock using the Floral Screen embossing folder. Cut it down to size to fit each section you want covered leaving a thin blue border showing. Adhere with double sided tape.

Creating the Oval Flowers:

Decorate your own paper or use printed decorative paper.

Other Supplies: Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers, Rhinestones, 65lb white cardstock

Step 1: Nest 2 oval dies within each other - the #2 (2nd from the smallest size up) from both the small & large set. Die cut 16 of these ovals (I usually die cut a couple extra just in case). If by chance some tissue lifts, just put a dab of glue under it. Don't throw any of your drop out scraps away - the card made with this flower uses all the scraps. Punch or cut out a circle approx 1" or a touch smaller from white cardstock. Put a layer of white glue all over the circle and start adhering your ovals as shown.

Note: all flowers are made from the drop out pieces of the original die cuts, using the #1 dies of each set either nested together or just one to get a thicker outline. Yogi pulled apart the petals from Tim's Tattered Flowers daisy floral as accent pieces.

Step 2: Put another bit of white glue on the circle and adhere the 2nd layer of ovals as shown. Try getting them as evenly spaced as possible. Continue as shown.

Step 3: Apply some glue stick to the back of the ovals and adhere a piece of coordinating scrapbook paper as shown.

Step 4: With small scissors, start cutting away the excess portion of the ovals. PS don't throw them away, they're great to accent corners on cards and things.

    

Step 5: Do step 1 & 2 again with the balance of the 8 ovals. Layer one on top of the other and rotate the layers to which ever way pleases you!

.

Start adhering the oval flowers. The main one on the front with a dab of white glue in the center. Leave the petals free of glue.

Adhere a smaller flower to the top inside, trying to hide it behind the front when card is closed, but making sure card still opens freely. Adhere two larger flowers on the last section. See card views for placement.

Die cut some leaves (use any punched or medium sized die cut leaves) from thin white cardstock that's been sponged with some Peeled Paint, then sponge the details with Pine Needles. Adhere them to enhance the flowers (or hide an unwanted element).

Stamp the word "Friend", as per card sample, with the white stamp pad and emboss with the white embossing powder.

Stamp the quote with the black on a thin piece of white cardstock, emboss with clear embossing powder. Trim and adhere to middle portion of card as per card sample. Adhere the last flower, creasing it at the fold line.
