SET A: 3.5 x 5” YELLOW CARDS
For the first two cards, score the Yellow base at 1.75 and 5.25″ to create a gate fold card design. Punch tulip design into four corners of white panel.
Use stamped panels and Cutaparts to decorate the front flaps. Color tulips using Distress crayons.
Stamp crackle image and heat emboss with yellow EP. Add blue Gelato wash to create background.
Use ink applicator and Delft Cracked Porcelain Stencil to decorate white panel.
SET B: 4.25 x 5.5” LIGHT BLUE CARDS
Stamp “Hello” and “Tiptoe” sentiment and emboss with black EP. Attach Silver Filigree Tile with silver mini brads.
Color Jumbo cracked tile image with Distress crayons. Attach filigree tile to yellow square panel with silver mini brads. Use a tulip punch on outside corners of inner yellow panel.
Adhere 5″ length of baker’s twine between inside base and Yellow inside panel. Trim Dark Blue panel horizontally at 3, adhere to Light Blue card front, sandwiching another length of baker’s twine between the two. Tie to close.
SET C: 5 x 7” MEDIUM BLUE CARDS
Score Medium Blue card base horizontally at 1, 3, 8, and 10″. Fold along each score line to create a gate fold design. (This leaves a one-inch gap on the card front, allowing the inside of the card to peek through.) Adhere Cutaparts to 1-inch flaps only.
Score Medium Blue card base at .5, 3, 8, 10.5″. Fold along each score line to create a gate fold design. (No gap.) Adhere 4.5 x 6.5″ Yellow Panel to left front 1/2 inch flap only.
Follow the instructions provided to assemble the Medium Blue cards. Trim one yellow panel vertically at 1.75 and 3.5. Adhere each 1.75 x 6.5″ panel to front of card. Embellish with Cutaparts.
Apply yellow alcohol ink to Yupo paper panel. Once dry, stamp Jumbo cracked tile image in India Ink. Trim two 2.5 x 3″ panels to fit front flaps.
I hope you’re inspired by Pam to try something different with your own Delft cards. If you’re interested in more details of how each card was made, visit Pam’s blog post. Happy crafting!
