I have a preview of a set from the upcoming September – December 2023 Mini Catalog today. This is a set that was available to demonstrators for a SU online event. So you may have already seen samples with it. It is Translucent Florals.
And I forgot to say that it is a fun fold. Actually it is a Double Z FunFold card.
The Translucent Florals stamp bundle is a great one! The images have a solid outline with a softer “filling” of the image. I love the look very much. And everyone in my Club and Class that made this card loved it as well. All of the images on here are die cut using the matching Translucent Florals Die set. I used two flowers and a set of double leaves, as well as the greenery piece. Everything is glued in place with the exception of the top larger flower and it has dimensionals. The little stamen stamp in the center of the large flower really makes a difference to the look.
There is one smaller flower stamped on the inside large White layer that is not die cut. You could place a complimentary piece of DSP there as well. And I stamped the double leaf stamp on the inside sentiment piece just for an additional pop of color.
The two sentiments that you see are not from the Translucent Florals set. They are from the Sentimental Park stamp set. I wanted simple greetings and the Translucent ones were more wordy. These two fit perfectly where I needed them.
The colors for this card were more chosen by the greenery color. And that is Pretty Peacock. The strip of DSP is a reverse side of one from the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper. It has the variegated look that works great and makes the Basic White sections pop. The flowers are all stamped using Calypso Coral Ink with the Pretty Peacock for all of the greenery and card base. For my bling I used the Iridescent Pearls and colored them using the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend. The softer look seemed perfect.
The Double Z Fold is created with a piece of Pretty Peacock measuring 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 that is scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4. The smaller Z is made also with Pretty Peacock and measures 2 3/4 X 8 1/2 with the same scoring measurments. After folding and burnishing the card base. Add the large Basic White piece that is 4 X 5 1/4. And the Basic White layer that is 1 7/8 X 5 1/4. The DSP layer is 1 3/4 X 5 1/8.
The Basic White of the smaller Z measures 4 X 2 5/8 for the front and the two sections are each 2 X 2 5/8. Before adding the smaller Z to the base, you can stamp first and add the White layers. Make sure the Z and layers are positioned properly. The smaller Z is opposite folds to the large. To add the two together I found the easiest way was to close both pieces and lay the smaller on top. The ends of the smaller should go all the way to the edge on both sides of the card base. Once you have it in the location you want, add adhesive to only one side at a time. Please let me know if you have any questions.
