Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Fantastic Fun Folds and 3D Projects. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
The card I have made to share with you today is technically a Fun Fold. There are options for making it and I went with a simple version. My version removes part of the “Fold” making it more of a Fun Cut than Fold. LOL!! Of course I would be different. But I hope you like it.
This fold is called an Envelope Fold. I got the fold idea from a Splitcoast Stamper post of Dina Kowal. It can be either cut into a point on the front, like I have done. Or it can be scored and folded , where I cut off those sides, and then the DSP triangle is added over the folded sections creating a pocket. I wanted the clean look of the point for the front of the card.
Here is a look at the inside of the card. I have a PDF for the card further down in the post.
The corner DSP pieces are what you also see on the front. I love that this fold still allows plenty of room for your inside stamping and writing.
Stamps, Dies and Ink
The stamp set is what used to be a Bundle. It is the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and matching Poinsettia Dies. All of the stamping is done using Cherry Cobbler Ink. The poinsettia on the inside is “stamped off” first to create a bit lighter color.
I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the die cut flowers on the front of the card. The Poinsettia Dies are awesome in the details they give to the flowers. There are two separate dies for each flower. They can be used singly or together, as I did.
Paper and Embellishments
For me, the beginning of most cards is the Designer Series Paper. For this card, other than the Fun Fold, that was the case. I love the Tidings of Christmas 6X6 paper stack. And the piece I used is my favorite. The mix of soft and regals colors are perfect.
To finish with some bling, I added the flower centers by using the awesome Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. It comes paired with a Rose color as well. They are beautiful and have awesome details. The die used is included in the die set. For the smallest flower, I used the ribbon hole on the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to make a center.
Instead of me trying to explain everything in the post, I have created a PDF for you. Please forgive any grammatical errors. And let me know if you have any questions. Click on the picture below and it will open the PDF.
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on November 10th. Our theme will be “Home for the Holidays” when our Design Team creates a project to celebrate the upcoming holidays. Until then, have fun in your craft space.
