This card turned out really well…..I used the Meandering Meadows Suite found on the Stampin’ Up! ® page under the Online Exclusives. This is a stunning suite, the stamp images a simple and easy to colour and add elements to the beautiful papers in Meandering Meadows Designer Series Paper.
This card is a Fun Fold – Spanner Panel Card (why it’s called that …I don’t know). I liked this fun fold for this card because it highlights the Designer Series Paper beautifully. You get the hint of the scene on the front and then open it up to see more of the stunning meadows. Open the center flap to find the greeting….It’s a card that just keeps getting better.
I have added the YouTube Live Video below.

Tips & Tricks
- Side panels are 3.5cm wide (1 ⅜”), in the video the first base I cut it was too narrow, you will see me discard that one and re cut.
- I used Window Sheet across the base so it allows the view of the meadow to be seen through the gate. Rather than blocking it off with solid cardstock.
- The DSP on card front you could make the same width as center panel…either way would look great.
- Colouring with the Stampin’ Up! ® Blends is very simple and you don’t need to use the same number of colours.
