This beautiful fun fold looks complicated but it's not

Today I have another fun fold idea to show you - this one is perfect to use as a gift bag card or on top of a small present. It looks complicated but is actually easy to make if you follow along on my video below. 

For the focal piece inside my card I am going to use the Painted Lavender stamp set.

162594 Painted Lavender stamp set

There are so many ways to use this set. Stamp a simple bunch of lavender as a focal point, or repeat the floral images to create a wildflower field as a background. The greenery bunch is designed to work with the flower tops in an organic way, without requiring precise placement. Plus, the clear stamps make it easy to quickly align the images when stamping the flowers and greenery in two different colors.

For my card, though, I am going to keep it very simple.

I also used the Perennial Lavender paper - so pretty, right!

For my phrase layer I am going to use the Deckled Circles Dies:

162286 Deckled Circles Dies

Every crafter needs some basic tools, and this is one of them! The Deckled Circle Dies quickly cut basic shapes with a twist—a deckled edge! You can cut several sizes in different colors and layer them to create a big colorful circle. Cut different sizes and scatter them on your card for a fun background. Cut in rainbow colors, then cut the circle in half for two rainbows. The list goes on and on and on. Tip: showing as low inventory in my online store!
