International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - April 2023

I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top 10 in the April 2023 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my Tropical Leaf Fancy Fold Card.

My card today is one I made for a swap in a recent Demonstrator Event in Nanaimo, BC.  We had such fun gathering - we haven't done this in awhile!  I used the Sweet Citrus Bundle to make this fun fold card.  Thanks to Beth McCullough for the inspiration for the fold!

It's pretty easy to make and I love how it opens.


  1. Cut Daffodil Delight cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder.
  2. Cut on the 4 1/4" scoreline from the top down 2 3/4".  Turn 90 degrees and cut from the edge to the scoreline.  Save this piece of cardstock
  3. Cut Calypso Coral cardstock 2 1/2" x 4"
  4. Cut the Daffodil Delight cardstock piece down to 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"

  14. Stamp leaves on Granny Apple Green cardstock using Granny Apple Green ink
  15. Adhere behind fruit using Glue Dots.
  16. Stamp sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Calypso Coral ink
