My Favorite Challenge: Trifold Card

Hi, everyone! It's Thursday, so that means it's time for the MFT My Favorite Challenge! This week, Joanne and I challenge you to make a trifold card. You can find all the challenge details HERE on the MFT Member Company Forum. For my sample, I made a gatefold card with the set Flopsey's Flowers.

I colored with Copics and cut Flopsey out. I added glitter to the flower petals, and I adhered rhinestones to the flower centers.

On the inside of the card, I stamped just the flowers three times along the bottom of the white panel. I veeerrry carefully inked up the flowers before stamping, but a few extra lines got inked as well. I camouflaged them by doodling some squiggly vine-y looking things before I colored them! :)

I just realized that yesterday's card and today's card were both thank you cards with flowers! I guess I needed to stock up on thank you cards, huh? ;)

Thanks so much for visiting today! It's always great when you stop by!

Have a wonderful day!
