Double Folded Grapefruit


Thanks for joining me for another Colour Creations Blog Share.

This week we are looking at Grapefruit Grove. At the risk of becoming an outcast, this isn't a colour I've yet warmed to. I like that it's a very different colour to anything else in our range, and I will acknowledge that it's a useful colour, but it's just not one that I find myself reaching for unless I have to. I'll duck for cover now!!

I often start my Colour Creations process by looking at which DSP has the colour of the week. In this case it was the Petal Promenade DSP. As soon as I realised and saw the pieces with the frames, I knew exactly what I was going to make.

I can't recall what this fold is called, but it's super easy to make. It's just two top fold cards, one slightly smaller than the other that is adhered upside down to the front of the larger base, and then folded to create the extra little bit at the front. The floral frames are actually quite small, so I started with them and built my card up from there.

I had to use one and a half of the frames to make the card, and the trickiest part was cutting the half piece so that it lined up exactly with the full frame behind it. The photo doesn't show it very well, but I managed to get it pretty spot on. I was quite chuffed!

The DSP piece along the bottom was from the same sheet of paper as the frames on the front. The flowers reminded me of a wedding bouquet, so that's where I went with the inside of the card.

Why not pop on over to Catherine's blog so that you can see the rest of this week's Grapefruit Grove cards? Maybe the colour will warm on me by the end of the Blog Share!

Bye for now,
