I am totally in love with the Cheerful Daisies suite of products from the new 2023 Annual Catalog.  I am also in love with the new In Colors, and have been playing with Wild Wheat.  Standing alone, this color may not be appealing at first, but combined with other colors it is stunning.  I think it serves as a new neutral color.

Here is a card I recently made using a few of the new In Colors and the beautiful Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper –

Wild Wheat Cheerful Daisies

Wild Wheat Cheerful Daisies Open

Do you recognize the fold I used for this card?  It is called “book fold”, and is so easy to make.  Take an 8-1/2 x 4-1/4 piece of cardstock, score at 4-1/4″, then again at 5-1/4″.  Fold the card at 4-1/4″ (mountain fold), then again (valley fold).  Use a strong adhesive (I used Tear & Tape), to adhere the card together inside the second score line.  The card then opens like a book, hence the name “book fold”.  Easy peasey!

I stamped the greeting on a scrap of Basic White, then I cut it out by hand before adding it to the card.

I must make a confession – see the strip of Wild Wheat on the inside flap of the card?  When I went to add adhesive to create the book fold, I placed the Tear & Tape on the wrong side of the fold.  I used a strip of Designer Series Paper to cover up where I had placed the adhesive.   Lesson learned.  But this is an example of a mistake that opens the possibility of creativity!
