Sunshine in my garden

Hello, my crafty friends! I'm so excited to showcase my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #57 - It's A Triple Play! We are being sponsored this time by Karleigh Sue Designs, Pickled Potpourri and Bugaboo Digi Stamps! Come play with us - we want to see your project using three of any type of embellishment... your triple play!

You know I'm a fancy fold junkie and I've created my first-ever latch card! This tutorial was in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter several weeks ago. I always look forward to getting those because I can always count on seeing something that I want to try! I used the absolutely gorgeous 'Sunshine in my garden' digi with sentiments from Pickled Potpourri for this card. This image paired so nicely with the yellow and black cardstock.

I printed a smaller image and colored and fussy cut the sunflower which I adhered to a white punched circle layered on a yellow punched circle to use for the latch. My triple play is three yellow polka dotted Candi Minis. :)

Here's the card unlatched and opening. There are score lines on the right side to allow the card base to flex while it's being unlatched.

And here is the inside which I layered similar to the front.

I'm pleased to enter this latch card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Whisper White (#100730), Stampin' Up! Crushed Curry (#131199), Stampin' Up! Basic Black (#121045), Stmapin' Up! Bohemian Designer Series Paper (#138446)
  • Stamps: Sunshine In My Garden digi and sentiments from Pickled Potpourri

  • Dies/Punches: Spellbinders Postage Stamp die, Stampin' Up! 1-1/2" and 1-3/4" Circle Punches
  • Accessories: MS Score Board, Candi Minis, Inkessentials White pen
