Karen Middleton's Summer by Randi

Hello to all of you!
I hope you're all doing fine, and that life is being good to you.
Today I am sharing a new card with you, made with the beautiful stamp named Summer by the amazing artist Karen Middleton. I just love her beautiful girlie images, they are so perfect for Confirmation cards, which I am making lots of these days. Springtime means Confirmation time here in Norway ;)
I've stamped up the image on Canson Aquarelle paper with Archival Ink Coffee (as always with me...) and colored her up with Distress reinkers (also as always with me... LOL)
This time I've been doing a small twist on my card: I've folded a Joy-Fold card. It has been a while since I tried a new folding technique, I love folding!! I love the Joy-folding - so easy and yet so effective!

Here are some pics:

The finished card. 
I'm sorry about my fingers in the pic, but I had to hold the card so you could see how it is when it is folded ;)

One fold opened...

Both folds opended. I've made a writing panel and a money ribbon inside

Beautiful Summer

Wishing you all a happy week!

Lots of love,

  1. Oh so beautiful. It's very soft and sweet to stamp with Brown. Sometimes I use distress pads and then color with distress reinkers and pens.

  2. Wow Randi!!! Your coloring is amazing as always, but the folding and card is super fun and fancy. What a great idea.

  3. Love your fold, totally gorgeous creation. So much love in it.
    Hugs Nat

  4. Fabulous image and great folding!

  5. Randi, this is fabulous. I've always loved the way you use distress reinkers. I've tried but struggle with faces/hair but after seeing this I think I must play a bit more. Best wishes, Kym xxx

  6. Randi, another stunning card from you. I absolutely adore your layouts. All the layers on this card are gorgeoous, very pretty

  7. Thanks so much for the inspiration. This is beautiful!

  9. Oooh I've never seen a joy fold card before - it's lovely! :)
