Last week on my Pats Card Corner Facebook PageI posted this picture of the preparations for a card that had 22 pieces. It was just one of 9 projects that were going to be made at an All Day Stamping Retreat – Springtime in Paris that my friend and fellow Demonstrator, Margaret Spencer, were planning.
Today I am sharing that card. It’s a “W” fold card and in this case I think the “W” stands for winner.
If you like the outside, then take a look at the inside….that is where the “W” fold is. Since our retreat was called Springtime in Paris, most of our projects followed the theme of taking a trip to Paris and that wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Louvre. We used one of the Sale-A-Bration items….Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper for this card.
The Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper is bold and big with lots of dark colors so little pieces go a long way in making an impact. The paper is inspired by Monet’s water lily paintings By using small pieces on cardstock panels, The inside of the card resembles a little mini version paintings hanging on the wall of an art museum
If you would like to make this card, these are the supplies you will need.
- Floral Essence Stamp Set
