Daisy Delight Concertina Card Fold

Here's another sneak peak of some of the products that will be available in the new catalogue - available from June 1st 2017.

This card was so much fun to make and the Daisy is just gorgeous.  It is made using the Daisy Delight Bundle which includes the Stamp Set and Punch - and the cost of this is simply FANTASTIC!

The paper is part of the Daisy Delight Suite and is called Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

This is kind of like a double Z fold card, so have called it a Concertina Card Fold.  They are super easy to make and I will include the instructions below (in both inches and cm). 

The colours are taken directly from the Designer Series paper - Calypso Coral & Daffodil Delight.  The daisies are stamped and punched out twice and then adhered together.  I made the centres of the flowers by punching out a 1/2" circle.  I then covered the circle with Fine Tip Glue (liquid glue) and covered it with glitter flakes.  The glitter flakes I got from Dollar King.  It took a while for them to dry, but the effect is amazing.

The sentiments come from the same stamp set.  The one inside was punched out using the Classic Label punch and the front Sentiment was punched using the Triple Banner punch. 

Here are the measurements and template for the card.  It fits perfectly in a standard C6 Envelope.
