Simply Zinnia Card [Diagonal Pocket Fold Series #6]

ZINNIAS DOUBLE POCKET CARD

I’m thrilled to share a card-making journey that marries elegance with a sprinkle of surprise. The Double Pocket Tag Card, featuring the soon-to-be-released Flowering Zinnias Suite, is more than just a card—it’s a delightful experience for both the maker and the receiver. Let’s delve into the essence of this creation, from its inspiration to its versatile applications, and how you can bring this beauty to life.

Inspiration: A Garden of Paper

The genesis of this project was the enchanting Flowering Zinnias Suite, part of the exciting Online Exclusives launching next month. My vision was to craft a card that not only sends a message but also unfolds like a narrative. By combining the vibrant Zinnias with thoughtful phrases from the Sweetly Scraped and Happy Little Things stamp sets, I aimed to create a garden in bloom, with each tag representing a flower in this paper-crafted Eden. The special twist? As each tag is lifted, a heartwarming greeting is revealed, transforming a simple card into a memorable experience.

Versatility for Every Occasion

What excites me about this design is its adaptability. Initially crafted as a birthday greeting, I quickly realized its potential to transcend occasions. By simply altering the greeting, this card transforms—making it perfect for Mother’s Day, anniversaries, or just because. It’s a testament to how creativity can bridge messages and moments.

A Note on Presentation

Given its dimensional beauty, this card challenges the norms of envelope sizing. The floral overhang and tag protrusions beckon for a larger envelope or perhaps a gentle bubble wrap embrace. It’s a small consideration for ensuring this piece of art arrives as intended—pristine and surprising.

The Zinnias: A Closer Look

The Flowering Zinnias Suite is a celebration of versatility. Whether you’re aiming for a vibe that’s groovy or leaning towards elegance, this collection is your ally. With crafting paper that sings in vibrant hues and dies that bring flowers and foliage to life, the possibilities are endless. And for those eagerly awaiting, keep an eye out for my Flowering Zinnias Stationery Box Special Offer in the Stamps in the Mail kit.

I’ve prepared a comprehensive guide, complete with step-by-step instructions, a handy template, precise measurements, and a detailed supply list. This treasure trove of information is available in a free PDF, ensuring a smooth crafting journey.
