Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Sale-A-Bration is one of my favorite times of the year!  I love getting FREE products for purchasing things I love!  And I have a “Bundle” of things I have fallen in love with to share with you today.

 

 

I have used the Berry Blessings stamp set and the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper.  These two are a Bundle in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  The bundle is FREE with a $100.00 purchase.  My photo does not do the beauty of the DSP justice.  The colors are very vibrant!

For the center stamped area, I used a separate piece of White cardstock to stamp on.  The outline of the leaves is Garden Green with the inside being Granny Apple Green.  The berries are outlined with Pacific Point and the inside is Balmy Blue.  I also added a few extra berries using a “stamped off” Highland Heather over the Balmy Blue.  I fussy cut those and added a few with dimensionals overtop of the center stamped ones and then scattered a few on the “bridge” in place of an embellishment.

The gorgeous plaid blue DSP is the flip side of the berry DSP.  I decided I wanted contrast instead of all of the panels being the same.  The two sentiments I have used are part of the Berry Blessings stamp set.  I stamped those using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to stand out from the bright colors of the DSP.  And of course… I used the Double Oval Punch.  It seems as if I have used that punch on every card I have made since it debuted!!

This fold will still fit inside an A2 envelope.  Here is a photo of it flattened for inserting into an envelope.

 

 

You can see that the left side is folded and the right side is flattened out.  It will do this in either direction.  So depending on how you decorate, it will still flatten out.  The size of the flattened version is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, so normal size of a card.

I had a request for a Bridge Fold Card for a class I am doing soon.  After figuring out what it was, I have really enjoyed making this card using that fold.  My favorite thing is different Folds!

I have the measurements for you and would love to see your version of this Fun Fold.

  • Base of the card is cut to 8 X 4 1/4 (Tip: cut the 3″ off of the 11″ side before cutting in half for the 4 1/4.  You can use this piece for the inside and the bridge piece)
  • Score on the 8″ side at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, and 6 3/4.
  • The inside White layer is 2 3/4 X 4
  • The four sections cardstock layer is 1 1/8 X 4 1/8
  • The four DSP sections are 1 X 4
  • The base of the Bridge is 1 X 5 1/2
  • The cardstock layer is 7/8 X 5 3/8
  • The DSP layer is 3/4 X 5 1/4

 

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed my project and will give it a try.
