Lovely all the way Around


This is a very quick-and-easy card that packs a huge impact.  You just need an 8.5″ x 5.5″ card base scored as usual at 4.25″.  Then, to make the “fancy fold” score one more time at one end at 1.25″.  Fold the card closed as normal, and then fold back the small flap to make a z-fold:

Then you need one piece of Designer Series Paper cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″.  For this card I used these very pretty oranges from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.  Cut 1.25″ off the long edge.  Adhere the larger piece on the front of the card, under the small flap.  Adhere the small piece on the inside of back of the card, right at the edge so it shows when the card is closed. 

I used the Lemon Zest set to make the orange slice…inking up the entire image in Peekaboo Peach and running my Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker around to color the peel.  The leaves were made with the same set using Pear Pizzazz ink and cardstock and coordinating Lemon Punch.  Circle punches (or one could use Layering Circles Framelits) cut out the orange slice and Pool Party circle to layer it on.  The sentiment is from Lovely Wishes.

Super fast, super easy with a lot of Wow! factor.  Here’s a version I did last year for Valentine’s Day:
