I needed a card last week for a color challenge, and since I was already making cards with the Hello Ladybug stamp set, I decided to ease my workload and have one card do double duty.

I made a simple Fun Fold card.  The smaller front panel was die cut with the Deckled Rectangle dies and it attaches and opens with the narrow hinge on the left. 

Below are the colors of the color challenge.

The card base and one Ladybug were made with Basic Gray, and the front flap, hinge and the 2nd upper Ladybug were made from Smokey Slate.

The 3rd color of the challenge was Bubble Bath, so I gave both Ladybugs Bubble Bath Wings and some Bubble Bath flowers to fly around.  On my Monday card I used the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper, and I used another design from that collection today to provide the background for the inside of the card.  Isn't the ombre Bubble Bath pretty?

The Ladybug stamp set includes a daisy stamp which I used for both the card front and the inside of the hinged flap.

A touch of Berry Burst ink on the tips of the petals adds a little more depth and dimension to the daisies.  

All flowers on the card have centers of Iridescent Rhinestones which gives them a nice, but subtle bit of sparkle.

This was a fun FUN-FOLD card to make.  It's simple and doesn't require any complicated scoring, cutting, or folding.  I also like the fact that it gives you three different surfaces to decorate so you can create a bit of a "story" as you turn the page.

On my daisies I added a few speckles to provide additional dimension and depth.  If you missed the video on how to easily make speckles with your Stampin' Write Markers, you can catch the replay below.

If you would like a tutorial with all the dimensions and step-by-step directions, please use this link to download a copy.

Refer to the following list to see all the products that were used.  I did use a recently retired Medium Size Daisy Punch to punch the front daisy and the top layer of the inside daisy, but it would also be easy to fussy cut if you do not have that punch.
