Wonderful Wildflowers Tri-fold Card

Amber, of Damask Love, has been wowing us with her innovative projects featuring MFT stamps and Die-namics for awhile now, so to say we are thrilled to have her joining us for a couple of guest posts is an understatement. We are confident that her talent and ingenuity will blow you away as well! Let’s just get to her project so you can see what we mean.

Hey there MFT friends! I am super excited to be guesting today on the MFT blog and sharing a couple of projects using some of my favorite MFT products. On my blog, Damask Love, I do a lot of everything – from stationery to gifts, I pretty much love to make anything, especially with paper. For today’s project, I’m going back to my card-making roots and sharing a design that will be a show stopper for any recipient.

This tri-fold notecard has awesome depth and is sort of a mini work of art! Let me show you how I made it:

The Wildflowers Centerpieces Die-namics is currently one of my absolute favorites! The detail is amazing, but so easy to execute. Even though the set does come with little coordinating petals, I opted to add color to each flower with my Copic markers.

You’ll need to add a little sunshine to your trifold card. First, I used a craft knife to cut a rectangle frame from the center portion of the trifold card. To do this, close the card, and use the border of the already die cut Wildflower Centerpiece as a guide for where you’ll need to cut the center panel. Next up – some sunshine. This is easy to do by adding a 1″ circle die cut from the Circle Stax Set 1 and coloring it with shades of yellow. Then, simply adhere it to the inside of the frame so that it’s peeking out.

Last up, you can tackle the third panel on your notecard. Use Post-Its or masking tape to create a frame that matches the previously cut rectangle. Then start blending away with the MFT Inks. I love the look of this pretty blue sky!

Here’s a peek at how your fully assembled notecard will look:

Now, since the majority of the card is covered by your beautiful artwork, you can go ahead and write your note on the back of the card. Think of it as a postcard that’s been given a hefty dose of awesome!

Thanks so much for letting me hijack the MFT blog today! Hope you’re inspired to make something pretty.

    This is wonderful. I love it. But can you please explain how you would accomplish “piecing together” two pieces of cardstock to get 16 1/2″ length? I cannot envision this. I don’t see how you could do that without it looking bad.

    Wendy, you could take two 11 x 4.25″ pieces of card stock scored at the half way point and completely adhere the right half of one with the left half of the other – they would overlap and the seams would be camouflaged by the folds.

    Love, love, love the new Blueprints 15. I can see using this for school time, office themed cards as well as the masculine themed cards. So many pieces to possibly mix with other dies and blueprints.
