Welcome to my ABC Color Series! Stampin’ Up! offers so many great color choices! I love to combine different colors and patterns and hope to inspire you with some fun color combinations throughout this series. Today’s project features one of my daughter’s favorite colors, Highland Heather.
This card uses the Darling Details Bundle. (*Our coordinated craft bundles save you time and money! Buy the bundle and save 10% off the price of buying the stamp and dies separately.)
There are several stand alone dies in this set. The stamp set is perfect for birthdays, thank you cards, or those “just because” times. You know me, I love a versatile set! The darling doily designs plus the simple florals makes this the perfect stamp and die bundle for everyday occasions to use year-round! *You can even weave ribbon through the strip I used on the envelope if you want to add some fun texture.
I love embossing folders and used two different ones from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders (an online exclusive set of 3). I added dots to the envelope flap and used the crosshatch to emboss the background on the card front. The flowers (and large leaves) are stamped using a two-step stamp technique. I used Gorgeous Grape ink for the outline image and stamped inside the flowers with Highland Heather.
This card can be used for many different occasions. Add whatever sentiment you need on the inside.
I haven’t made this fun fold in awhile. It’s called a Z fold and it is a quick & easy fun fold!

It’s another Tic Tac Toe Thursday! This week I created a fun fold envelope flap card.
And here’s this week’s challenge/inspiration board.
I chose to go down the middle with birthday, nautical, and embellishment. I have several friends who love to sail and know any of them would appreciate this card. This is a “new to me” fun fold idea I learned from Cindy Brumbaugh. I love the unique way it opens up like an envelope.
I used a pattern from the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper. I love how you get to see both sides with this fun fold design. This paper pack is the “reel” deal for crafters who love to fish and people who need a fishing-themed card, masculine, and/or nautical card. It also has basic designs that you can use any time, on any project.
This is an easy fun fold card to create.
Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Envelope DSP: 5-1/4″ x 10-1/2″ scored on the 10-1/2″ side at 4″ and 8″. *Cut flap as shown below.
Basic White: 3-3/4″ x 5″ (inside), scrap to stamp and die cut sentiment on front to tuck the flap in to close.
Scraps: to punch sailboat
How to cut the flap:
Mark the top section of the DSP (the 2 1/2″ section) in the middle at 2 5/8″. Then cut from center mark to the score line on each end.
To assemble the card, fold the DSP and adhere the die cut sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. *I applied the dimensionals along the sides of the point first then added the sentiment on top.
Adhere the folded DSP to the card base. Punch and add the sailboat with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add the anchor and twine embellishment with a Mini Glue Dot. Then stamp and adhere the inside layer. Love this simple fun card! I will be making more of this style fun fold! What do you think of this fun fold? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below.
