Floral Phrases & Detailed Floral Thinlits - Brights

OK, this one will definately NOT be a part of a class. I was experimenting with this card, and it is a little too involved for a class. But, I am happy to show it to you and those experienced card makers that want to give it a try, go to it.

I was in the mood for brights! (Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, & Melon Mambo) I also wanted to surprise the receiver of the card. They would be expecting the Bermuda Bay to be on the inside of the card as it is the liner to the Detailed Floral Die.

However, when opened there pops the Melon Mambo behind more Olive Green Detailed Floral die cuts. Those two front card flaps are four layers of cardstock, making it quite thick. I had to add an extra layer of cardstock to the back of the card to support the front card flaps.

As an afterthought, I was thinking that maybe having the interior die cuts in Bermuda Bay, rather than Old Olive,  might have looked a bit better.

Experimenting with ideas is fun, and the process always teaches you something new. I encourage you to experiment too.

Happy creating!
