Bold Brights Rock!

Wanted to share a quick card with y'all... This was the card I made for the big Shoebox Swap last month. I was inspired to make this card after reading some comments on Splitcoast on how the Bold Bright color group (by Stampin' Up!) doesn't get enough love. I agree! Here comes Summer, bust out the color!

The unique size/fold of the card is achieved by cutting a piece of base card stock 5 1/2" X 11" (I use a 12" X 12" piece to start to save paper). Score at 3" and score at 7 1/4". Create a pocket on the 3" fold by adhering the edges with Sticky Strip. The frame is achieve by using my method for "a perfect frame". Yes... I realize I have now officially overused this layout. I just can't help myself!


Stamp Set: Wild about You. Ink: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion Marker. Paper: Dots and Dashes, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Passion, Green Galore. Accessories: Grosgrain Turquoise Ribbon.
