Two Way Card (LSC177)

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge was to use folding. We could make gate folded, Z-folded cards, or any other fold other than the normal way we fold them. We were also to keep our layers and embellishments limited. Using up more of my In-Color papers, I made this Two-Way Card out of scraps. I had a 6" X 6" piece of Groovy Guava card stock that I cut down to 5-3/8" X 5-3/8" to use as the base. This size fits into the medium square envelopes in the Stampin' Up! catalog. The second layer was a left over piece of "Darling Doodles" designer paper. Rather than cut off the triangular piece, I just folded it so that both sides of the paper show when the first flap is open. The medallion was made from a scallop circle that was cut on the Cricut machine about a year ago. It was actually photo paper that just wouldn't work in the printer. That's why there's some shine on the right side. The next layer of the medallion was punched with the Scallop Circle Punch, and the center was stamped with the new "Wow Flowers" and then punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. I added doodled dots with a white gel pen.
The photo at left shows the card when the first (triangular shaped) flap is open. You can see that the triangle is mostly Groovy Guava, but the part that is adhered to the base is the other side of the paper and is mostly Purely Pomegranate. I colored in the flowers on the image from the new "Dreams du Jour" set with a blender pen.

The photo at right shows the card with the second flap open. First, it opens to the left, then it opens up. Thus, the title, "Two-Way Card." The sentiment on the inside is also from the new "Dreams du Jour" set. I like this type of card, and I also like making the big square cards once in a while.
