Here it is... the pink version. This is also the "Mish Closure". I LOVE all the new paper in the upcoming Spring Mini Catalog. This style card is perfect to use with any designer paper. Your colors are already selected for you, and you only need a small strip to make a really great card.
I used the new set Big Blooms for the main image. Polka Dots & Petals for the center of the flower. That is Close to Cocoa Craft stamped onto Regal Rose, then punched out with the 3/4 Circle Punch. The bottom portion is the new Jumbo Wheel Petals in Whisper White Ink. This Designer Paper is the new Double Sided Petals & Paisleys. All available in the new Spring Mini March 1st.
This card uses the "Mish Closure". My friend Michelle Wooderson is the master mind behind this cool card fold. She is totally amazing. You just cut your card stock 4 1/4 by 11, fold in half, then cut off 1.5 inches off the top of one end. Cover the back with a strip of designer paper, then use your slit punch in the middle and pushed all the way in. Make your front piece, then add your adhesive to the bottom portion, stick it under the slit punch and you are done. Card open and closes from the top, under the slit punch. People really love these when I send them in the mail. Give it a try... you'll be surprised how easy and addictive this style of card is.
