Gate Fold Sakura Dandelion Thank You Card

This was a fun card to make. I used the SVGcuts.com Sakura Flower cut file (which can be found here) to create this card. It was cut using my Silhouette Cameo with my SCAL3 (Sure Cuts a Lot computer program). I love that I can make the Sakura Flower any size, then weld the various sizes to make this "crazy" card. This card will fit into a A2 envelope so careful postiioning of the smaller Sakura flowers was needed. The stamp sets used are from Dandelion Girl's Day and Dandelion Keiko Set which can be found here.

Open the right side to reveal one of the "fan girl":

Message inside is from Dandelion Keiko Set. Stamped heart is filled in with a gold pen.

Here's a closer look at Keiko:

Like my stamp in the back? It's from Art Nekko.

This is how the card was made: the long cut piece was made using SCAL3 and cut with my Silhouette Cameo in Pixie Pink. Each of the Sakura flowers are sponged with Pixie Pink and Pretty in Pink ink.

Two of the three Dandelion Girl's Day stamps were used. The larger one is from Dandelion's Keiko set. Copic colors used to color their face, hair, flowers, and shoe bottoms are: E21, R20, R85, W10. and a Gold pen for the flower centers in her hair.
Supplies:




  • Stamps: Dandelion Girl's Day, Dandelion Keiko Set, Art Accents "stamped by"


  • CS: Gold, Neenah White, Washi Paper, SU Pixie Pink, SU Pretty in Pink


  • Ink: SU Pretty in Pink, SU Pixie Pink, Memento Black


  • Accys: Pentel Slicci Gold Pen, Copic Colors as listed above, Sponge Daubers, Dimensionals.
