Card with interior four-panel fold...

Here's a fun card that I made recently. I don't remember where I got the idea for the interior four-panel fold (probably Pinterest), but I loved the idea and I think it turned out great.

I used the same stamps for this card that I used in this post, plus a few more random stamps for the inside.

My little bow is an unbranded die set that is getting lots of use. I really love it. The sequins were from my stash.

And here's the inside. Isn't that fun? I simply took a piece of paper that was the same width as my card base, folded it into four even sections. I adhered four different stamped panels (each a little smaller than my four sections) onto four slightly larger mats and then onto my folded paper. I really did use paper--not cardstock--for the folded piece. It helps keep the thickness of the card to a minimum.

It was so much fun to go through my smaller stamps and pick some out for each panel.


I'm always surprised by the cute little stamps I find when I really look! Isn't that balloon with the ladybug a sweet image?

I colored the bird and balloon images with my Promarkers. The flowers above were stamped with colored inks.

Well, our company (who have been here for the last six weeks) left today. In fact, they haven't flown out quite yet, but are at the airport waiting at their gate to board. Their flight is scheduled to take off in a little less than two hours.

I think I am in dire need of a nap. I told my DH that he is getting a bowl of granola and a toasted muffin for dinner tonight. I really can't work up the energy or interest to cook a meal. Besides that, I happen to like granola and muffins!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

I love that 4 panel inside. It is great for when you can't say just one thing. I haven't seen that before and am going to try it. Your front panel is so pretty. Great job with the coloring.
