Book Fold cards just seem to add a little extra to our creations. I love any Fun Fold, but this is a quick and easy one to do. There is a mixture of products on today’s card. That shows the flexibility of card making I believe.
I will admit that this paper is from Sale-A-Bration. However, all of Stampin’ Up!’s papers are coordinated to where this card could be easily exchanged for different colors.
My card base is Fresh Freesia. It is odd that now that it is time for it to retire I have discovered how flexible it is and how much I love it! I paired it with Rich Razzleberry to pull the colors from the paper. These shades of purple are very different but work well together. I added to the pairing by using both the polka dot paper and the Rich Razzleberry as tags for the sentiment layer.
The sentiment and the stamped florals are from the Honeybee Home stamp set. Using colors from the papers, I colored both of the floral images with Stampin’ Blends. Since this is a fairly generic sentiment, and great for a lot of card giving reasons, I left the inside blank. Except that I added the flower again there. And I colored it the same as the one by the sentiment.
Dies and Punches
The flowers on the front of the card are cut using the matching Dies to the Honeybee Home Bundle. They are called Honeybee Blooms Dies. And the sentiment, which is from the stamp set, is cut using the Double Oval Punch. It seems a rare occasion that I do not use that punch!
The tags anchoring the sentiment are both punched using the Essential Tag Punch. One is from the polka dot DSP and the other is the Rich Razzleberry card stock. They are overlapped and then finished with a bow from the Essential Baker’s Twine Pack in White. The last addition is one of the Brushed Brass Butterflies on the “book” spine.
