Flowering Tulips Fun Fold & More!

I love May with everything starting to bloom and the possibilities that come with spring. (*Check out the Stamp-n-Storage Spring Sale below!) We moved in to our new home last summer so I missed all the spring blooms. It’s a surprise every day to see what’s popping up in our yard.

My friend Caroline loves to garden. She always has a beautiful flower garden. I made this fun fold tulip card for her birthday.

I was inspired to try this fold from a beautiful Christmas card created by Jan B. She called this unique fold a “floating screen card”.

I love the Tulips Dies! They are a must have for any floral enthusiast. Not only can you create layered tulip fields, but you can also create three types of layered tulip blossoms, perfect for creating your own tulip bouquet! Simply die cut the coordinating dies with contrasting cardstock colors, and then fold the pieces together to make beautiful tulip blossoms. These dies are sized perfectly for the front of a card. You can purchase them on their own or buy the bundle and save 10%.

I cut the tulip dies in poppy parade and calypso coral and sponged the ends with poppy parade. The leaves were cut with Old Olive and sponged with Old Olive. I love the way this  adds texture and depth. I built the tulip on a white panel cut with the Tasteful labels dies.

This fun fold is much easier to create than it looks!  There’s several layers to this card but it’s just simple cuts. Here’s the measurements:

  • Poppy Parade cardstock – 5 3/4 x 11 score at 2, 4, 4 1/2, 6 1/2, 7, 9
  • Poppy Parade cardstock – 8 1/4 x 3 3/4 score and fold at 4 1/8
  • Pool Party cardstock – 8 pieces @ 5 5/8 x 1 7/8, 2 pieces @ 4 x 3 5/8, 3 5/8 x 1 7/8
  • Flowering Fields DSP Design 1 (tulips) – 4 pieces @ 5 1/2 x 1 3/4, 3 7/8 x 3 1/2, 3 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Flowering Fields DSP Design 2 (polka dots) – 4 pieces @ 5 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Basic White – 3 x 4 to cut Tasteful Labels Die, 3 7/8 x 3 1/2 (inside)
  • Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Old Olive cardstock- scraps to die cut tulip & leaves

Cut pieces out from the top and bottom of the card base. Line up cardstock @ 4″ then cut from edge to 1 inch. Line up at 7″ and cut to 1 inch. Then cut between the 2 cuts. Do this at the top and bottom.

The rest is simple…Layer all the cardstock and DSP pieces together and adhere to the card base on front and back.

Stamp sentiment inside card. Adhere the center piece so it is “floating” on the panel.

I added some pool party sheer ribbon around the card and tied a bow to keep it closed. This card fits in a 6 x 6 envelope to mail.

Sending Smiles

Today’s project uses one of my favorite new bundles from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, Sending Smiles.
Stamping' Up! Sending Smiles bridge fold all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love the new In Colors. Parakeet Party may be my new favorite green! I created a fun fold “bridge” card using the new Parakeet Party In Color DSP with Sweet Sorbet, Daffodil Delight, and Parakeet Party Ink. The sentiment and flowers are from the Sending Smiles stamp set. I used the coordinated dies to die cut the flower and word die. You can add a stamped message or hand written note on the back of this fun fold card. The stamped flower on the back just makes me smile!

I decorated the envelope with the same DSP and a stamped flower.

A Special Fold Slimline Card for Andrew’s Birthday

My son’s birthday was a couple of weeks ago. We waited until he visited this weekend to celebrate a belated Easter and birthday together! I find it harder to buy for my son the older he gets! (I also find it hard to believe that I have a 35 year old son!!!! LOL) He lives in Rhode Island and even though our recent move made the drive easier and a bit closer; the tolls add up fast! So this year we decided to gift him with an E-ZPass (hoping he will come visit more often). I love to make my cards coordinate with the gift so I pulled out some retired Designer Series Paper (World of Good) for his card.
Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays masculine slimline card with World Of Good Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love this simple layout for a masculine card! I created a slimline card with a pocket so I could fit the E-ZPass application inside. (You can do the application process online if you have the vehicle registration information but I wanted to enclose his “gift” inside the card.) *This slimline pocket card works great if you want to enclose a check, cash, or “coupon”  inside. (We sometimes make our own coupon gifts, “Good For….”.)  This card design makes it easy to change up the DSP for a feminine card, wedding card, etc.
Stampin' Up! Balloon Adventures slimline masculine card with inside pocket holder for cash or check - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The inside sentiment is from one of my favorite retired stamp sets, Balloon Adventures. It was the perfect choice to go with this “travel” gift set. I like to change it up and add a little more interest by stamping on DSP when possible. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
Here’s the details to make this card:

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card Base – Basic Black: 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 3 1/2 and 7
  • Designer Series Paper – Front of Card: 3 1/4 x 5 1/8, cut 2 @ 3 x 1 5/8
  • Designer Series Paper – Inside card: 1/2 x 8 1/2 (pocket), 3 x 4 1/2 (sentiment)
  • Designer Series Paper – Envelope: cut 3 @ 1 x 3 1/2

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Fold and burnish card base. Staple inside pocket on ends. Cover staples with DSP strip.
  2. Stamp sentiment on DSP. Adhere the 3 DSP pieces to front of card. *I added a special touch using Black Matte Dots to the map DSP to show the travel route from state to state.
  3. Stamp sentiment on DSP, cut with Stitched Rectangle Die, adhere inside card.
  4. Adhere DSP strips to the front of the envelope.
