Be still and know...FTTC150 61

Mona Pendleton | Monday, January 2, 2012 @ 11:00 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's celebration! Scott and I just relaxed and spent the evening at home :) It's time for the first Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge of 2012 and I'm the hostess for this week's challenge. I'm challenging you to create a Trifold card. There are various ways to create a trifold card ~ if you are in need of a tutorial, there are some awesome ones on Splitcoaststampers ~ click HERE.
Here's my sample of a trifold card and coordinating trifold envelope using primarily the beautiful Flourishes Lenten Rose set along with pretty patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Nantucket collection:
Shown here on the very front of the card, I stamped an image in the the lower left corner and using a Spellbinders Labels Fourteen die, I cut a window to reveal the sentiment displayed on fold two:
 Shown below is side 2. I randomly stamped the single Lenten Rose image on the card base, stamped the lovely Be still and know sentiment then using a Labels Fourteen die to cut the image.
The inside of the card, displays a beautiful sprig of Lenten Roses and a wonderful sentiment.
Here's a close up:
One thing I love about Flourishes stamps is that they are so easy to color, even for the less experienced like myself!

I couldn't help myself ~ I made a coordinating trifold envelope using a mix of pretty patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Nantucket collection and Core'dinations Modern Prints:
I finished off the envelope with a pretty single Lenten Rose and tag. The tag sentiment is from the  Butterflies & Blossoms set. So fun to mix and match stamp sets!
Here's a pic of the Copic markers used:
