Thoughtful Journey Square Split Panel Card FMS635

by Joanne James13. May 2024 08:00


Happy Monday everyone - welcome to a new week! As promised last week, I have another card showcasing the beautiful Thoughtful Journey papers, this time using Jen B's layout over at Freshly Made Sketches:

I did tweak Jen's layout slightly, making it into a square card because I just couldn't bear to not use the whole of my sheet of designer paper - take a look to see one of the designs in all its uncut glory:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I split my paper into two pieces, cutting down the front of my card to house the larger portion then adding the narrower piece to the card base so that it is also visible when opened. I added a simple sentiment from 'Thoughtful Wishes' to the front of my card, anchored by a shiny pearl:


When the card is open, you can see both the edge of the scene and the insert, which I also decorated with one of the florals in the 'Thoughtful Wishes' set:


This card was so simple and easy to create - the Thoughtful Journey designer paper really does do all the hard work.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day; I am starting my week with lots more household jobs to tick off my list. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

This card is beautiful!  I just love that paper and definitely think you needed to use the whole sheet!  I would hate to cut it!  Love the little flowers on the inside as well!  Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Nice fold - and with paper this lovely, why not show it off to best advantage?
