Making Fun Fold cards is one of the techniques I love! Today’s fun fold stars the Cheerful Basket stamp set.
There are a variety of stamp sets used on this card. It is definitely a mix and match card! And that is one of the things I love about stamping. With fall colors in mind, I wanted a Fall look. The first step is the basket. It is from the Cheerful Basket stamp set. The floral inside the basket is from the Hello Harvest stamp set. By using a little masking at the rim of the basket I was able to cover the open area. Plus an extra sunflower that is raised up gives detail and completes the covering.
More Stamps Punch
The sentiment is from the Very Best Occasions stamp set. Sentiment sets are wonderful and especially when they have a good variety! To help the sentiment pop on the basket, I used the smaller cut out of the Double Oval Punch. By adding a couple of the Rustic Metallic Dots the sentiment looks like a sign on the basket. And was a perfect fit.
Papers and Colors
Choosing the colors normally comes from the papers. But this one came more from the floral arrangement. The card base is Calypso Coral with a layer of Granny Apple Green. Luckily I found a matching DSP piece in the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper pack. This huge pack is part of the Annual Catalog Host Rewards.
This card was cased from Connie Stewart. She has a great video of how to make it, so I am not going to duplicate. It is pretty easy though and I love that. Here is a view of how it opens.
There are similar cards with the three strips that I have made previously. This one has additional folds and a tight closure.
I hope you have a great day!
