Today's project is a cheer-you-up card. It uses the Daisy Delight Stamp Set, the Daisy Punch and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. (That is a mouthful of D's.) I also used the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set for the sentiment.
Usually unique folds have a name to describe them. I've seen variations of the fold used on today's card called a Dutch Door and a Front Flap. To me, this style of card will always be a Terri card. My recruiter, Terri Gaines, designed this unique fold many years ago. And, she has designed many variations of it. To continue celebrating my 20 years with Stampin' Up! this month, I decided to copy from the best card designer I have known for 20 years!
When you see the card lying flat, it doesn't look unique. But once you open it, the aha moment begins.
As quickly as you open the card, you will find yourself closing it just as quickly. And, pretty soon you will be opening and closing the card a few times because, not only is it unique, it is also fun!
Here is the back side of the card.
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Old Olive Cardstock
Second Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Cardstock is attached with SNAIL Adhesive to the Card Base.
Third Layer: 2 1/4" x 8 1/2" Old Olive Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4". Attach one side to the back of the Card Base with SNAIL Adhesive.
Fourth Layer: 2" x 4" Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper is attached with SNAIL Adhesive to the front of the Third Layer.
Fifth Layer: 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" Old Olive Cardstock, put through the Big Shot with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. This is attached to the Fourth Layer with three Dimensionals, placed on the left side of the Stitched Circle.
Sixth Layer: 3" x 6" scrap of Whisper White Cardstock to stamp two images of the large daisy and punch them out with the Daisy Punch. Attach the two daisies together with SNAIL Adhesive. Place one Dimensionals on the back side of the daisies and attach to the Fifth Layer.
In case you were worried, this card can be stood up and put on display! A Gold Faceted Gem, placed in the center of the daisies, is the finished touch to this card.

It is too bad that yesterday's weather was overcast. The eclipse wasn't visible. So I watched it on the NASA channel. Wasn't that amazing to see? Today, I'm prepping for tomorrow's marathon crafting day with some team members. I have quite a few card swaps to make using the Holiday Catalog products. It is always more fun to create with a group of friends. Have a thrilling Tuesday!!!
