Forever Fern Pop Up Gift Card Holder

Today’s thank you card is a pop up gift card holder for a friend who came to my rescue this summer when a major home project took a disastrous turn! The So Sentimental stamp set had the perfect sentiment!Stampin' Up! So Sentimental and Forever Greenery pop up gift card holder
I have made this pop up gift card holder before; however, I used cardstock instead of designer series paper. I chose to use the Forever Fern Designer Series Paper because it matched the restaurant gift card. I just love it when everything coordinates!

Stampin' Up! Forever Greenery pop up gift card holder

I stamped the inside with the greenery stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set using Garden Green ink. Then I added color to the leaves using Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I still have plenty of room to add my personal message.

Nothing’s Better Than…

How would you finish the statement, Nothing’s better than….? Yesterday it was fresh air and friends for me! My friend Susan and I met at Ramsey’s in Annapolis. The three of us enjoyed a socially distanced picnic in the park. It was the perfect afternoon! I packed a picnic lunch with sandwiches, fresh fruit cups, and some yummy chocolate brownies for dessert!  Stampin’ Up! Mini Pizza Boxes and the new Mini Coffee Cups provided the perfect picnic packaging!

The Nothing’s Better Than Bundle includes the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set and the Love You More Than Dies.  The sentiments in this set are perfect to create cards, accents, and more! Cookies, coffee, cocktails, and chocolate! Get it all in a single stamp set.

The Mini Coffee Cups are for more than just coffee! They were perfect for individual servings of fresh fruit for our picnic!

Life is Better with a Friend Like You

Hello Stamping Friends! How are you doing? I know this is a stressful time for everyone and I am so thankful for my stamping business! Some days I feel like my “creative therapy”, friends & family, are the only things keeping me sane! We have not been able to buy toilet paper in the last 7 weeks even though it has been on our pick up order every week! I finally found some to order online; however, it never arrived! Enough about that! Let’s get on with today’s project.

I have several friends with upcoming birthdays and I wanted to make them a special card. I love fun fold cards and couldn’t wait to try this new fun fold I learned from Ronda Wade. It’s called a Stand Up Card. You can see how it got it’s name.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Fun Fold Birthday card idea with Ornate Garden DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to make a Stand Up Card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Mint Macaron): 4 1/4 x 11, scrap to cut scalloped circle from Layering Circle Dies
  • DSP Panels (from Ornate Garden): Cut 2 @ 7/8 x 4 3/8, cut 1 @ 2 1/8 x 4 3/8
  • Whisper White: 7/8 x 4 1/8 strip for the bottom, 4 x 4 1/4 for the back, scrap to stamp and cut with Stitched Shapes Die

Directions

  1. Score the card base at 4 1/2 (*This will be the only full score you make.)
  2. Flip the cardstock and place the longer side of the card base in the trimmer and line up the left side at the 2 inch mark. Score from the top of the card down to the 1″ mark.  Then score from 3 1/4″ mark to the bottom of the card.
  3. Line up the card along the 1″ mark in the trimmer. And repeat the same scores…Score from the top of the card down to the 1″ mark. Then score from the 3 1/4″ mark to the bottom of the card. *You will have 2- 1″ score lines at the top and 2- 1″ score lines at the bottom of the card.
  4. Put the 4 1/4 side in the trimmer and line up at 1″ on the left. Cut from the 1″ score line at the bottom to the full score line above.
  5. Line up the card at 1″ on the right side of the blade. Cut from the 1″ score line at the bottom to the full score line above.
  6. Next you need to score between the cut lines at 1″ from the score line at top of the card.  The easy way to do this is to line up the card base at 5 1/2″ on the trimmer. *The full score line will be at the 1″ mark. Then score between the cut lines.
  7. Fold and burnish along the full score line.  Your card should look like this.Stampin' Up! Stand Up Fun Fold card tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  8. Then lift between the cut lines and fold the top score line back. The bottom scores will fold back and forward. Burnish all score lines with a bone folder.
  9. Adhere Designer Series Paper strips to the front of the card as shown.Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Fun Fold card tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  10. Stamp sentiment from Peaceful Moments on Whisper White strip with Early Espresso Ink and adhere to the bottom of the card. Stamp daisy from Daisy Lane in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once. Stamp Happy Birthday in Early Espresso ink above the daisy and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Circle Die.
  11. Color the center of the daisy with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and adhere to Layered Circle. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Stamp sentiment and daisy on Whisper White panel and adhere on the back.  Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Fun Fold Birthday card idea with Ornate Garden DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  13. Wrap Mint Macaron ribbon around the center panel and tie a bow.
  14. Decorate the envelope flap with 1/4 strip of Mint Macaron and 2 x 6 piece of DSP and trim to cut off excess. Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Fun Fold Birthday card idea with Ornate Garden DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I am loving the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper! I also love how the daisy prints coordinate so well with the Daisy Lane Stamp set and matching punches!

Today is my friend Jill’s birthday. (I’d love for you to leave a comment below and wish Jill a Happy Birthday!) I made another version of this fun fold card for her. She really loves bees and even has a bee tattoo. I think she will like this card!

I had fun stamping the back of the card too! There’s still plenty of room to add a personal note.
