The Field of Flowers stamp set and the Hinge Fold seemed like the perfect combination for the Sunday Stamps Color challenge this week. This is the first time I have participated in this challenge. I was inspired by a card created by Stamp with Amy K for the same challenge.
Here are the colors for this week's challenge. You will definitely want to visit Sunday Stamps SSC 247 to see all the great cards that were entered. You will be inspired! You can also join the challenge yourself!
To create the hinge fold card you will need the following:
Night of Navy Card base: 5 1/2" x 7 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Wood grain Mat layer: 3" x 5 1/4"
Basic White: 2 3/4" x 5"
Night of Navy: Cut largest of Stitched Nested Dies, score at 3 3/4"
Basic White: Cut 2nd largest Stitched Nested Die, trim to 2 1/2" by cutting off 1 point

Begin by folding your card base on the score line. Adhere the woodgrain paper from the In Good Taste Designer series paper pack onto the left side. The stem and leaves from the Field Of Flowers stamp set were stamped randomly in Mossy Meadow ink on the piece of basic white card stock. The flowers were then stamped onto the stems using Seaside Spray ink. Adhere this stamped piece onto the woodgrain piece on the front of the card.
Using Mossy Meadow ink, stamp the field of grass/flowers along the edge of the white hinge piece. Add the flowers using Seaside Spray and stamp the sentiment "Always" in Pear Pizzaz.
Cut an inside mat of whisper white at 5 1/4" x 4" and adhere a piece of wood grain paper (3/4" x 5 1/4") down the left hand side. Then fold the Night of Navy "hinge" around the right hand side of this piece of whisper white with adhesive on the inside of the small piece of the hinge, being sure to center it in the middle of the right side. See the photo below.
Next, adhere that piece of whisper white and hinge to the inside of the card base. For the last step, adhere the white layer of the hinge onto the Night of Navy piece.
