. . . more Lovely Lillies at the Crafty Gals Corner

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Challenge #146 - Anything Goes

The sponsors for this challenge are:

Kitty Bee Designs

Prize ~ 1 Digital Image

Prize ~ 4 Digital Images


Today I have used the Lovely Lillies digital stamp from Delicious Doodles, one of our generous sponsors this week.  My cards are a "Z-fold with a twist".

The cards are a Z-fold, with the image panel becoming an offset flap.
They have fun and fancy dimension, folding flat for mailing.

This was my first time making this design, so my dimensions are an odd size.
The flat card is 6" wide x7" tall.
I scored a 7"x12" strip of cardstock at 3" and 6" using my scoreboard, firmly burnishing the folds with my bone folder for nice crisp folds.  The textured side of the cardstock is on the front LHS flap and the inner front RHS of the card as I like seeing the texture.
The white panel is 2 1/2" wide by 6 1/2" tall.

I sized the images to be 4" square, printed two sets of the image on an A5 panel of X-Press It Blending Card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.

I trimmed the image panels down to 4" square then matted each one with 4 1/2" square black cardstock.

This post is to focus on my delicate pink lily card.
