Do you ever have a hard time trying to create something? You know what you want in your head but putting it down on paper can be something entirely different. I really had no idea where I was going with this card when I started, but kept plugging along, playing with colours, checking out stamp sets & working out what will look best with what….
I also decided to go back to the colours when I started out with Stampin’ Up!
This week’s challenge has been bought to us by Gwen. It is to create a Centre Fold Card using the sketch provided.
Base Card – Certainly Celery – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored at 2 1/8″ & 6 1/8″ & folded towards the middle on both sides
Layer 1 x 2 – Not Quite Navy – 2″ x 5 5/8″ or 5cm x 14.5cm
Layer 2 x 2 – Whisper White – 1 7/8″ x 5 1/2″ or 4.5cm x 14cm
Layer 3 – Bashful Blue – 3 1/8″ x 2 1/2″ or 8cm x 6.5cm
Layer 4 – So Saffron – 3″ x 2 3/8″ or 7.5cm x 6cm
Layer 5 – Whisper White – 2 7/8″ x 2 1/4″ or 7cm x 5.5cm
Stamp Set – Pocket Silhouettes, Short & Sweet
Ink – Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery
Cardstock – Whisper White, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Not Quite Navy
Embossing Folder – Square Lattice
Punches – Scallop Edge Border
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Multipurpose Glue, Bigshot
I randomly stamped my images onto the smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Certainly Celery, So Saffron & Bashful Blue Inks. The sentiment was stamped in Not Quite Navy Ink.
This piece was adhered to the piece of So Saffron Cardstock & then Bashful Blue Cardstock with Snail Adhesive. I punched a scrap piece of Certainly Celery Cardstock with the Scallop Edge Border Punch before adhering to the bottom of the stamped Whisper White Cardstock with Snail Adhesive.
The small stamped images were adhered to the LHS of the card with Multipurpose Glue.
Don’t forget to head over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to see what Gwen, Kris, as well as our Weekly Guest Designer who has been very busy & created 2 gorgeous cards.
Until next time, have a great weekend

Thank you for the instructions
Thanks for the tutorial…lovely card.
Vicky, this is beautiful. I love the soft, delicate images and colours. I wish I had that knack.
Vicky, this is really gorgeous. I love the way you coloured the embossing folder to create a gorgeous background. As usual your “inside” is as beautiful as the “outside”.
Vicky, this is truly a gorgeous card. I love the way you added the colour to the background before you embossed. As always your “inside” is as good as the “outside”.
