I am ADDICTED to Pinterest. It is the worst time-hole of all. I'll give myself 10 minutes before I go to bed, and then I look at the clock and realize I've just spent an hour farting around. However, you can find some really good stuff whilst doing just that. I've seen a bunch of pins with these little seeds colour pallets and never bothered to find the source. I did yesterday though!
This morning as I was doing my regular rounds of my favourite blogs I found a joy fold card on Mary Fish's site. I immediately wanted to make one. The many layers lend themselves to a multi-colour card well. Then I remembered the pallet, and voila!
I was rather pleased with myself after making this one. So I call my husband in and proudly show him,"Isn't this a nice one?" His response: "It's pretty busy. I mean, for mailing, you know. It's really...thick." I'll tell you something that's really thick alright. Dud moment for him on that one.
Whether or not he thinks it's a great as I do, it was fun to make and I think I'll try and find a way to work this into my next stamp class. The Tea Shoppe set was the perfect match for these colours too. Overall, I think of my granny-twin tea cousin when I look at this card. Yep, that's you Amber. :)
I made a little flap on the back of this card to act as a stand so that it could be displayed once it was opened. It's got just a nice little space inside for writing a little note to a lovely friend.
