Love Blooms...Lever Card - Magnolia-licious 'Fancy Folds'


We're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Our new theme is 'Fancy Folds' which is a real favorite of mine.  To get the complete details on the challenge and how you can play along, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

Check out the fabulous cards/projects that my DT teammates have created for your inspirations.  Both Team A and B are here today.  Normally Team B would post next Tuesday, but we're having our Winter Blog Hop next week...woo-hoo, fun time!  Be sure to come back next week!

I found a card style that I haven't used before--it's called a Lever Card.  I found the tutorial at Splitcoaststamper done by Laura Lipe--you can view it HERE.  I liked the multi-fold feature of the card so I just have to make one.  Laura's card size is 4¼" x 5½".  So yup, you guessed it, I adjusted it to my preferred card size of 6" x 6".

The centre panel is a 'lever' that fits into the front window--thus the name.

Don't you just love this style?
I didn't put any embellishment inside the card because I didn't want to cover up the gorgeous designs of the papers.  Someone sent them to me--I forgot who--and I don't know who makes them as I couldn't find the manufacturer's name on the papers.

Close-ups of the Magnolia images being featured:

- Tilda In The Garden from the Pink Lemonade Collection 2014

Oh this is exquisite, and thank you for posting a link to the instructions for the level card. I will definitely try this. You must have known that we would want to know the source for that fabulous paper. What a shame that the company is not marked on it. It is truly one of the prettiest papers I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing this beautiful creation.
