Today’s card features leftover designer series paper from the Fun Fold card that I made for C3 (our Creative Card Club) last week. You can see that card HERE.
I love to challenge myself to use leftover paper to make something new. After I cut all the cards for our card club I had several 1 1/2″ x 4″ strips of the Affectionately Yours DSP. I adhered a piece to a layer of crumb cake card stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. I embossed the front using the Floral Affection Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
I stamped the sentiment from the Flower Patch stamp set using Night of Navy ink. (Don’t forget to use a mat when stamping with photopolymer stamps to get a nice clean image.)
I think it looks nice just like this but I decided to watercolor the embossed flowers and leaves using Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder ink with the Aqua Painter. Just squeeze your ink pads before you open to get ink to work with on the inside lid. (This way you are not diluting your ink pad.) It was really easy and fun to paint the embossed areas with the Aqua Painter.
Next I wrapped linen thread at the top, tied a knot, and added a bow. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back and attached it to the card base. Then I added pearls to the flowers.
Don’t forget the envelope! I embossed and painted the envelope to match. I love the way this embossing folder makes a great space to address your envelope!
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Be sure to check back tomorrow for another Fun Fold Friday card! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Oh so nice. Now I need this EF too! Ha Ha. Love how it looks.
Very nice card!!! And thanks for all the pictures! I am such a visual person….. And yes, you are another enabler, need the EF also!
Thank you for the kind words. You will love this embossing folder! And you get another one with it. I haven’t even begun to share all the cool things with the other one. In my opinion, embossing folders are the best bang for your buck. Inexpensive and simple way to make a wow card!
