Poppy Angle Card

Another new follower to introduce today.  Denise Price has lots of inspiration for being eco-friendly. She highlights any eco-friendly tips on her blog in green.  Please pay her a visit on 'Green Crafting' to see her lovely projects.  

Onto today's card.
I'm not sure of the name of this fold, I've always called it an angle fold.  I started off with a piece of card 10" x 7", which I scored at 2 1/2", 5" and 7 1/2".  I marked 1 1/2" up from the bottom on the left-hand side and drew a line from this mark up to the top of the third fold.  I then cut along this line, keeping the off-cut as a pattern for the sloped edges of the layered pieces. I used my favourite poppy stamp, it's part of a set by Hero Arts.  I stamped it out once as a full stamp, then masked of the bottom half before stamping again, colouring them both with Ruby and Poppy Promarkers and a green Stardust pen for the stems.  The embossing folder is Couture Creations 'Tied Together' and I've decorated the embossed panels with tiny pearls.  I finished off my card with a border punched edge, one piece for the sloped edge and another across the straight panel on the right-hand side.  I hope my instructions make sense!

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

I'm always bowled over by any kind of fold card, and this one is another such. Love the shaping and that lacey edge at the top. Lovely colors to highlight the cheery colors on the pair of poppies on each panel. Just really, really a pretty card. Well done on the design & shape. TFS & Hugs

Your creation is absolutely delightful Lix, the fancy fold really lends itself to the Hero Poppies and the colours are so striking, it ticks all the boxes for me.

It's lovely to see you at Stamping Sensations , Penny Black and More and Allsorts Challenges, many thanks for joining in.

This is a really pretty card Liz and the shape is highlighted beautifully by the punched border you have added. I love the poppies and the alternate embossed panels work perfectly with it. I adore the Tied Together EF which I did buy but when I got it home I found it was a bit damaged so I took it back and it was the last one in stock and when I have thought about looking since it hasn't been available so I don't think I was meant to have that one ..lol. x

This is an awesome card. I love the poppies and the angles. Great idea. Your Valentine card with butterflies is gorgeous and the fairy card is great. I love the embossing folder you used on the fairy card. I'm trying to catch up with my favorite blogs and you have sure made some beauties.

Wow, this is beautiful! What an unusual fold - I have not seen this one before - would love to try it! The poppies are beautiful!

Di said...

Absolutely fabulous Liz! A beautiful fold, love the edging along the top and that Hero Arts 'Delicate Blossoms' stamp set is one of my most loved ones too! Brilliant for melting into candles using the tissue paper trick :) And oh my, you also used my fave embossing folder as well - a truly outstanding card there!

Hugs

Such wonderful pops of red on your card! I was going to say I call this style a Z-fold but you have more folds in it than just a Z! Gorgeous card.

Brilliant shaped card Liz and what a good tip about keeping the offcut to sort out the matting and layering! Very pretty poppies.

This is a fabulous card, I just love it all. Seen on the Playground pick and just had to pop by to say what a cracker and I have that stamp, one of my favourites and I am also certain that I have that shape of card too, so I may just have a go and case this card. Hope you don't mind
