Today’s project is a Fun Fold for a Thank You challenge. I used a few different sheets of the beautiful Texture Chic Designer Series paper to create this one.
And here are the open views:
As mentioned at the top, this card was made for the Make My Monday Blog Challenge. This challenge was simply a Thank You card. You can see inspiring cards from the other designers, as well as join the challenge yourself. Simply click on the link to be taken to the challenge.
I believe the fabulous DSP is the star of this card. It is from the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper. My favorite is not only the images, but the colors. And in saying that, the color I used for the card base is not actually in the papers. But it matches perfectly with the darker shades and pairs with the Petal Pink. The card base is Soft Suede with the layers of Pool Party.
I have directions further down. But to complete the Paper topic, I used a piece of scrap to die cut the leaves which surround the sentiment on the front. The color variations were so pretty, and with Fall leaves as an inspiration, I decided to give it a try. They look great in my opinion. And to finish the inside of the card, I used a scrap to add a little bit of the Petal Pink to the bottom of the inside White piece.
Stamps and Dies
This is an all Chic card. The stamp set used was the Season of Chic with the matching Chic Dies. They are a bundle, and actually there is a Suite of the Texture Chic that contains the DSP, Stamp Bundle, and Distressed Gold Specialty DSP. I used everything except the gold paper.
As I mentioned earlier, the leaves are die cut from the DSP. There are several leaf dies and I loved the openness of them. The stamped Thanks is included in the set, as is the inside sentiment. Sadly there is not a die for the Thanks. So I took my paper snips and sort of outline cut around the stamped word. And to give more color and depth, it is layered on a scrap of Pool Party and I then did the same cut around that. It is not perfect by any means, but I love the look!
The card base of Soft Suede is cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. Cut from the top of the score line diagonally down to the bottom right of the front panel. For the small card, cut a piece of Pool Party to 3 X 8 and score and fold at 4. To make the diagonal pieces, cut a piece of Pool Party to 4 X 5 1/4. Next cut it diagonally from top left to bottom right. These are for both sides of the angle front on the card. Then cut a piece of DSP to 3 7/8 X 5 1/8. Cut it diagonally as well. Since this pattern is not directional, both pieces fit the front and inside of the flap.
To finish the inside of the card, cut a piece of Pool Party to 4 X 5 1/4 and adhere to the inside of the card. Also cut a complimentary piece of DSP to 2 3/4 X 3 3/4 for the front of the small card. A piece of Basic White cut the same size fits the inside of that card. Adhere the small card by having it closed and placing it with even borders all around. I finished mine with a strip of the Petal Pink DSP across the bottom of the White that was 2 3/4 X 1/2.
