Life is Beautiful

"Life is a beautiful thing" is the saying on today's card.  Sometimes we need a reminder.  Maybe someone you know is going through a tough time or you just feel like sending someone a little note to remind them.  This card would be a perfect way to brighten someone's day.

Use Stamp Set Colorful Season #143726- $27 
Stamp your sentiment in Momento Black ink in the lower right corner of your Whisper White front layer piece.
Stamp three little flowers in Island Indigo ink above your phrase.

Start with your base.

  • Add the Whisper White inside layer
  • Now add the Old Olive strip 
  • Followed by the DSP strip
Now for the front layer.  Start from the top and work your way down.
  • Add your lounge chair next to your stamped images on the Whisper White layer
  • Now attach this to your Old Olive front layer
  • And now to your Island Indigo front layer
  • IMPORTANT PART!  Pay close attention of you will stick your card closed ;)  ONLY put dimensionals on the lower half of this front layer.  You only want to attach it to your lower part of the front of your card- NOT the inner Whisper White layer.  This is what creates the neat fold you have going. 
Now you're done.  You've got a fun new design of a card with a fun sort of fold.  A little different from the usual card and will make someone's day much brighter!

Don't forget about Bundles!  This stamp set and thinlits come together for 10% savings!
