Today’s card is using the sweet paper from the Happy Forest Friends.  This is a Smile card from that happy paper, but also a Fun Fold.


Stampin' Up!, Ringed With Nature, Tree Ring Hybrid, Happy Forest Friends, Jackie Beers



This card is a Fun Fold and actually the paper is more the star of the show.  So I am starting with the beautiful Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper.  As I show the open view, you will see that the same pattern carries across the entire card.  The only different piece is the one showing on the left above.  That space needed to be a complimentary pattern, instead of the same.

All of the colors used are pulled from the woodsy piece of the DSP.  Soft Suede, the rarely used So Saffron, and Poppy Parade all work so well together.  Here is a view of the open card.



Stamps, Dies & Embossing

It took a variety of products to get the details on this card that I was looking for.  The stamps used are from the Ringed With Nature stamp set.  Even the little leaf on the inside writing section is from the set.  And those tree rings are so fun!  They are part of the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder.  This includes the embossing folder, along with ten tree rings that create five double layer rings like I used..  But also includes little twigs and leaves dies.  It is an awesome set of Dies and can be bundled with the Ringed With Nature Stamp Set.

The focal layer is two of the tree rings, which fit perfectly together.  Sadly you must zoom in on the photo to the great details of the rings, but in person it is easy to see.  The sentiment is from the stamp set as well. It was stamped using Poppy Parade for a bit more Pop!  For the final touch I added one of the 2021-2023 Opal Rounds for a touch of bling and to show a bit more of the “yellow” look.


This is a FunFold that is super easy to make.  For the base card you need a piece of 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 cardstock that is scored at 1 1/2 and 4 1/4.  Fold and burnish to a Z fold. The  focal  layer  So  Saffron  is  cut  to  2 3/4  X   5  1/4  with  DSP  at  2 1/2  X 5.  The  left  side  front  has  So  Saffron  at  2 3/8  X 5 1/4  with  complimentary  DSP  at  2 1/8  X 5.  There  is  an  inside  narrow  piece  that  has layer  as  1 1/4 x 5 1/4 and  the  DSP  at  1 X 5.  And  the  back  section  has  So  Saffron  cut  to  the standard  inside  size  of  4 X 5 1/4.  Then  there  is  a DSP  on  the  left  cut  to  1 7/8  x 5 and  a   White  at  1 3/4X  5.
