Screen Card

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you are staying cool.  Here around the castle it is waaay too hot!  I remember my grandmother had a dressing screen.  When a friend showed me this card, I knew I had to make one.  (RECIPE BELOW) I made this for my mom and her favorite color is purple.  I used a Martha Stewart punch on the top, and punch that I've had for a long time on the bottom.  If you have the SU! curly label punch this will work as well.  I used it on the bottom to create the legs of each panel.  The paper is from the Journeys stack from Kathy Davis.  I recently picked it up at Joann's for 60% off.  Love those kinds of deals.  I used a dragonfly punch and a flourish punch by EK Success.  The bling is from my stash.  For the sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Heart to Heart."
To make this card, take a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 colored cardstock.  With the 11 inch side at the top of your scoring board score at:  2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4.  Fold in half then fold (mountain) and the panels in(valley.)  I cut it down to about
6 x 11 inches after I used the Martha Stewart border punch.  Depending on how big of a border punch you use, you can adjust how long you want it to be.  So what do you think????  I love how it turned out and more importantly so did my mother.  I love to give her cards to let her know how much I love her.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,
(The Queen)
