Triangle Joy Fold Card

I created this birthday card using Rosie Posy from Lili of the Valley stamps.  I decided to make a triangle joy fold card after seeing a tutorial on the Lili of the Valley website.  This was my very first triangle joy fold card and I'm very excited on how it came out.  Although I will admit it is very heavy with all the layers of card stock and embellishments.


Triangle Joy Fold Card

I started with a sage green card base.  I added layers of brown linen patterned card stock, cream card stock, sage card stock and a floral patterned card stock. The lace border is created using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added green paper roses and branches that I punched out of the brown card stock.  I added a bow made out of sheer pink ribbon and added a green paper rose to the center of the bow. I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils and added green chalk around the edges and added 3 rose pearls to the bottom corner. 


Here are a few more views of the finished card.....

I added a piece of blue ribbon across the card just under the sentiment.
