Mint green is such a nice color to work with. It is so fresh and lively and always cheers me up. That makes it the perfect color to send a hello to a friend.
This card stands nicely on a desk or table and easily folds up to fit in a regular size envelope for easy mailing.
To make this card, cut a piece of cardstock 12" x 5.5". Score at 2", 4", 8" and 10". Then 1.5" from top and bottom of card, cut along the the length between the 2" and 10" score lines. Using valley and moutain folds, fold along the score lines using the picture above for a guide. Then, cut panels to fit some or all of the flat areas. I added a chipboard flower and some self-adhesive border. Then, I heat-embossed the sentiment.
I created this card for the Minty Fresh Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. If you want to play along with us, you can create your own project using mint-green in some way and enter it in the challenge. Here's the address with all the details: http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2012/08/the-minty-fresh-challenge.html .I also entered this card in the Cardmaking Challenges going on among the Fiskateers this week. Not sure what a Fiskateer is? We are ambassadors for Fiskars and we have so much fun creating with each other. You can join in all the fun there too.
