Tri-fold Fleur Anya...

Happy Saturday everyone! I usually don't post on the weekend...but there is a new release going on at TGF! Introducing Fleur Anya...if you would like to purchase her Tamiko's is selling this cute rubber stamp. So don't hesitate...go and get one now! Here's my take on this cutie! I wanted to make her the "aloha" girl. She really does represent Hawaii and so I wanted to use the different cheerful colors that we do see every day...here in beautiful Oahu. I also wanted to try this awesome tri-fold card...I received one from Tammi @ Tropical Dreams and had to CASE it. I know mine didn't come even close to Tammi's but I had fun making this. Here she is dangling from the front of the card and I made her with black hair! I also paper pieced her dress and you know me...had to use those pretty flowers!
here's the front cover opened up. I made it into a pocket with a sentiment "Aloha from Hawaii" as I thought this was perfect. added more flowers and bling.
this is what it looks like when all the flaps are opened up. I created another pocket in the middle and added a tag with another sentiment. there is another fleur anya. she is now an ehu (reddish brown) haired girl! I think these two represent a lot of "local" girls here in Hawaii. of course more flowers and more bling! I left the right flap open, to write your own message if you are sending it to someone.
this is the middle flap up close. isn't she just the cutest thing! I had so much fun making this card! lots of work, but well worth it and it's so easy to make...this one is CS 5 1/2" x 12", then score @ 4" and 8". decorate to your liking. I used two different DPs.
May you enjoy your weekend!
A - always smile...
L - love one another
O - open your heart...
H - hugs from me to you
A - and spread the "aloha"
Be Blessed,
