spring fold card

Trying out a new card fold today.
The tutorial for this spring fold can be found here.
~ Ü ~

Make My Monday's challenge this week is a spring fold card, with a spring theme. It's a rather complex fold, so I decided to keep it simple. 

The main image is a stamp from the botanical print set. It is stamped and embossed in clear ep. Then I applied a blend of distress inks - peeled paint, spiced marmalade, tumbled glass and victorian velvet. It has been popped up with foam pads on a rounded square shimmery background (unfortunately, not visible in photos). Another rounded square is cut, with a round aperture, on which I attached a coloured ring, and gems in the corners. The sentiment is stamped and layered onto a scalloped circle and topped with a button and twine bow.

The base of the card. The pattern in stamped and embossed before applying ink, and the top edge cut with a border die, and embellished with a simple jute string and bow.
