Assembly

  • Fold and burnish score lines using a bone folder. Fold Old Olive cardstock forward, fold Pressed Petals DSP back
  • Adhere Old Olive DSP to the Old Olive card base.
  • Put Tear & Tape (or other strong adhesive such as Multipurpose Liquid Glue) along the 3/8″ score line. Fold up from 2nd score line and adhere.
  • Stamp sentiments on Very Vanilla cardstock with Golden Glitz Metallic Ink and Soft Suede. (I masked sentiments from Country Home and To A Wild Rose Stamp Sets.)
  • Punch and die cut leaves from Gold Foil using Leaf Punch, leaf from Every Season Punch Pack, and die from Botanical Tags Dies. Adhere to Very Vanilla panel.
  • Emboss sentiment layer with Subtle Embossing Folder for a linen look. Adhere to Pressed Petals DSP.
  • Add adhesive along 3/8″ strip of DSP panel and along bottom of card base. To adhere to card base:  Fold card base flat, center bottom of DSP along bottom of card base and adhere. Then fold adhesive on top of DSP down and adhere to card base.
  • Stamp sentiment for back of card on Very Vanilla. *Tip: For an easy masking technique when you want to stamp 2 colors, use the Stamparatus and a sticky note. First I stamped the sentiment in Golden Glitz Metallic Ink on to my cardstock.  I covered the words I didn’t want to stamp with a sticky note then inked my stamp again with Soft Suede and stamped. So easy!
  • Add leaf die above sentiment and adhere to DSP layer and to the back of card base.

A Sentimental Fun Fold Card for the Pals Blog Hop

2019-September Blog Hop Badge

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin’ Up! has so many great sentiments to choose from it was really hard to pick a favorite. Then inspiration hit me as I was decorating my home for fall.

Thanksgiving pillow

I love the sentiments on this pillow (enough to buy two to sit on my dining room chairs). It really sums up how I feel! There’s inspiration everywhere! I love a challenge and decided to recreate this “sentimental” pillow for my card.

Stampin' Up! Country Home and To A Wild Rose Fun Fold Thanksgiving card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used two stamp sets for my sentiments, To A Wild Rose and Country Home. This pop up fun fold design really showcases the sentiment layer and makes it the focal point. I used the Stamparatus and the new Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Ink to stamp my sentiments. I stamped grateful twice, first in Golden Glitz then with Soft Suede so it would be darker like the pillow but I also wanted it to shine like the others.

It’s hard to see the shine in my photo but trust me, it’s there. I punched and cut the leaves from Gold Foil and glued them on before embossing the sentiment layer with the Subtle Embossing Folder to give it the look of fabric like the pillow. (Sometimes I do go a bit overboard when I’m trying to recreate the look; however, I really like how this turned out and probably wouldn’t have thought to do that if it wasn’t for my inspiration piece.)

You can stamp a message and/or write a note on the back of the card. The sentiment I used is from Country Home. This card can sit on a shelf or desk and folds flat to fit in an envelope.

 

Check back tomorrow for the tutorial how to make this fun fold card. You can use this design with other sentiments for many different occasions! Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out on project ideas and more!

So what do you think…Did I get the look of my inspiration piece? Leave a comment below and let me know where you find inspiration.

Happy Mail

Welcome to my weekend showcase! Today I am showcasing some cards I received from others over the last few weeks.  My heart skips a beat when I get the mail and see a card addressed to me! I love “Happy Mail”!

This card by Colleen is just stunning!  I am going to have to have her show me how she did such beautiful blending with her sponging.  After looking at this I need to practice more! She also used the masking technique. I like how the stamped images stand out against the background.

This sweet surprise was tucked inside Kathy’s card swap card with a little note thanking me for doing the card swap…so unexpected.  (I really enjoyed doing the card swap and getting to showcase everyone’s amazing talent!)  I love the custom envelope Kathy made and really like how she chose not to color everything which makes what she did color stand out!

I have never met Susan but she follows my blog and when she read it was my birthday she sent me this beautiful card.  I was so touched! Susan’s envelope caught my attention immediately!  I love how she stamped the back of the envelope with this stamp.  Did you know Stampin’ Up! sells this stamp? It is a single wood-mount stamp (item # 143573).  It is not in the catalog but is available to purchase online.  Join the movement to bring birthdays back—send handcrafted birthday cards to all your friends and family, and stamp the card and/or envelope with this trending hashtag to let them know they’re part of something cool! Click HERE to view and find out how the movement got started.

#imbringingbirthdaysback

Anyone who purchases this stamp through my online store will receive a birthday card kit from me to get you started making and sending birthday cards.  Birthdays are special! Wouldn’t you rather get/give a handmade birthday card in the mail vs. a post on social media?

Let’s share some happy mail stories! Leave me a comment about some happy mail you sent or received.  I will pick a random winner to send some happy mail to!

Have a wonderful day!
