Welcome to week 2 of the 2024-25 Colour Creations Blog Hop. This week we are looking at the second New InColor called Petunia Pop!

If you were playing along last week I was making a 100 boxes for a Mother's day High Tea this coming Saturday, well while I was in the fancy fold mood I decided to make a fancy fold card for our Petunia Pop colour challenge this week. (I have photos of the finished boxes at the end of this post)

For the card base I have used Pebbled Path and when you open the gate fold the inside part of the fold will look like this. Now let's decorate!

I decided to used the gorgeous Thoughtful Journey Suite of products as the Thoughtful Journey DSP is simply gorgeous and has Petunia Pop as one of the colours. Thoughtful Wishes stamp set and dies are also gorgeous so it was calling my name this week.

You may be saying, Sharon I can't really see Petunia Pop on your card apart from the little bit of ribbon and the stamped sentiment. I can see lots of Blackberry Bliss. Guess what my favourite colour goes really well with Petunia Pop don't you think!!!!  I have backed some of the gorgeous Thoughtful Journey DSP on each side of my Gate fold with Blackberry Bliss and the belly band is also Blackberry bliss but WAIT......

Slip off the belly band and open up your card and there you have all of your Petunia Pop for this week.

Each section of the fold is layered in Petunia Pop and then I have followed the design around with the gorgeous Thoughtful Journey DSP.

In the center of the card that pops up I have embossed with the Eyelet 3D embossing folder and using the dies that come in the Thoughtful Wishes bundle I cut out some leaves and flowers in Mossy Meadow, Basic White and Petunia Pop to layer with the Petunia Pop Ribbon under the sentiment from the stamp set that I cut out with a deckled circle die.

On the back of the card I have also added a piece of Basic White so that you can write your greeting to the card recipient.

My goodness! What an awesome fancy fold card! The paper you've used was an excellent choice. It's a beautiful card.

"... while you were in the fancy fold mood .." LOL - aren't you always?! I laughed at your commentary about the front of your card, because I thought exactly what you said! Glorious details once the card's open, Sharon. Lovely work.

Snap on the papers Sharon. Don't you just love that paper pack? As always you have created a lovely fancy fold card especially considering "you were i the mood" hahah

Rachel Palmieri said...

You KNOW a fancy fold is expected Sharon and you really do present some beauties,no exception here. I do love this paper and your fold does show it off very well, but doesn't Petunia Pop set it off too?

Cathy Proctor said...

Justy when I think I've seen every fancy fold, you continue to surprise and delight me with yet another one, Sharon! This is delightful, as is the colour combination of Blackberry Bliss and Petunia Pop. Love your MD boxes too - you have been a very busy lady!

Michele Taylor said...

Awesome as always Sharon. Petunia Pop was the perfect choice for you feature pop out panels as it works so beautifully with this glorious paper. I did smile though as I just assumed that you were always in the mood for a fancy fold.

Kate Morgan said...

Oh Sharon, I thought you were almost going to say this is now your new favourite colour ;) This is a great fancy fold to showcase these papers and it would also make a grat Easter card with that cross in the centre!

Ros said...

That certainly was a pop of petunia pop! Great card design, hadn't seen that style before.

You always make the most beautiful fancy fold cards and you are right Blackberry Bliss goes well with Petunia Pop!
