The card I have to share today is a beautiful Flip Front Fun Fold that is a sympathy card.  I hate making these, but they are necessary.  And with the All About Autumn DSP it gives you a warm feeling.


Stampin' Up!, All About Autumn, Heartfelt Hexagon, So Sincere, Circle Punch, Jackie Beers



The intention of this card was to focus on the stamp / punch bundle.  But the paper really stole the show.  This piece of the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper is a fabulous one.  The walking through the woods is beautiful and perfect for a sympathy card.  For the side panel I used the reverse of the front piece of paper.  And the Wild Wheat really highlights the gold of the scene.

Stamps and Punches

The Heartfelt Hexagon is a new Online Exclusive bundle that I really like.  It has stamps for a few different occasions which is great.   The punch is the hexagon with the sentiment stamped on it.  It reminds me of the Tailored Tag Punch, just a bit taller and fatter.  The size is perfect for larger sentiments!

The hexagon is layered on the 2 3/8″ Circle.  It needed something else and that circle seemed to do the trick.  To give it a touch of bling, I added two of the Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems.  And for the inside sentiment I went to another stamp set.  This one is the So Sincere from the Mini Catalog.  It also is a multi-purpose sentiment set.  Here is a view of the open card.



Fun Fold

This Fun Fold is a twist to what I call a “shortened” card.  The card base is 7 1/2, instead of 8 1/2 wide with the height of 5 1/2.  Score at 1″ and 4 1/4″ on the long side.  As you can see from the inside view, the 1″ side is on the right and folds backwards to allow the card to open.  The real trick is placing your sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals only on that 1″ panel.  But I love how this keeps the card closed.

The layers are Very Vanilla cut to 3 X 5 1/4 and 3/4 X 5 1/4.  Then the DSP is 2 7/8 X 5 1/8 and 5/8 X 5 1/8.  I almost did only DSP instead of adding the Very Vanilla layer, but I like the lightness it adds.  And it is aligned with the inside layer when open.
