Floral Fold Card

Hello! Today I made this card for this week's challenge at Joan's Touch. I don't know exactly what type of card this is but I call it a mini fold card. Joan's Touch provided very simple instructions on how to create it for this challenge. If anyone is interested, click on the challenge blog link above and it will take you to the challenge site where you will find the instructions.

The card is made from one piece of card stock cut 7.5 in length and 4.25 in width and scored at 4 various points. The sentiment is from GKD Flowers Bloom stamp set and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The floral image is from HFC Tattered Blossom Swirl set and was stamped twice; once on the prepared card and a second time on another piece of card stock. The part of the image which was stamped above the score line on the card was cut out and the card was then folded on all 4 score lines and the bottom scored piece adhered to the front. The floral image which I  had stamped on a separate piece of card stock was colored with Copics, cut out and then adhered over the image on the card. 

This was a very simple card to make. The most difficult part was cutting out the area above the score line. I used both a craft knife and scissors, neither of which I am a master of. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today! Hope to have another card posted tomorrow.
