Lilac Festival

Happy Monday Friends! My card today is another one of the Art Impressions 'Try'folds stamp sets, "Gazebo". This stamp set is currently available from the Classy Cards 'N Such online store.

You start out by cutting a piece of card stock 51/2" X 11" and scoring it in thirds.  On the center panel you stamp the Gazebo section. You then turn the card over and stamp the Archway with table on one side, next to the fold line, and on the other side stamp the Sign, gifts, and hat box next to the fold line.  Then using your favorite coloring agent (I used my Copics) color in the designs with the suggested colors or some of your own choice.  I colored mine today in various shades of purple and lilac.  When you complete the coloring you then fussy cut around the images on each side, from the outside edge of the card towards the folds. When you reach the fold, turn your scissors and cut straight up along the fold to the top of the card.  You can then fold the side flaps in to make your "tri-fold" card. I then mounted mine onto a 41/4" X 51/2"  A2 size piece of Stardream Punch Metallic card stock, just to give it a little more strength on the backing.

I am entering this card in the Classy Cards 'N Such Weekly Challenge #32- Lilac Festival.

To add a little more sparkle to this beautiful card, I highlighted some of the elements with my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. Purple is one of my favorite colors, so don't be surprised if you see more cards with this color scheme during the week.
