Helloooo. Did you have fun shopping with Stampin’ Up! during FREE SHIPPING day? I certainly did :O) Today’s card is all about Spring – and I love the color combination. It uses items from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack & other items as well. Shall we take a peek? Just so ya know, I haven’t done this fold before. It wasn’t tricky or anything – and may be called something else. All right – let’s take a look.
You can see why I called it a double fold – there are two parts to it. As I mentioned earlier, I used several elements from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack… the circle on which I stamped on the front, the dragonfly, and the starburst yellow paper. The Vellum dragonflies were from a project some time ago – leftovers and saved in the stamp case.
The basic needs:
- Seaside Spray card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
- Basic White card stock 4 x 5 1/4 (2)
- Bumblebee card stock 3 1/4 x 4 1/4
- 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 1/2″ square cut in half on the diagonal and scored on the long side at 1/2″
The how to:
- Stamp a Basic White panel with Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Memento Black ink. Stamp the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set – also in Memento Black ink. Lightly color the flowers with Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Color the leaves with Just Jade Stampin’ Blends. Adhere three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins .
- Fold under the scored edge on the 6×6 DSP triangle. Adhere to the top & bottom of the Basic White panel with liquid glue. Trim the ends that overlap.
- Adhere the starburst panel (from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack) to Bumblebee card stock with liquid glue. Adhere this to the triangle – at the top only.
- Stamp the circle (from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack) using the Garden Wishes stamp set and Memento Black ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends: Just Jade for the leaves & stems; Mango Melody for the flowers. Put dimensionals on the back of the circle and adhere to the card front, centering. Adhere the laser-cut dragonfly (yep – from the card pack!) with liquid glue along the body. Attache the small vellum dragonflies with a single mini dimensional for each.
- Adhere this entire panel to the Seaside Spray card base on the front. This completes the first portion of the card.
- Stamp the sentiment on a Basic White panel in Memento Black ink.
- Adhere a 1/2 x 4 strip of the 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP near the bottom.
- Adhere this panel to the inside of the card and voila!
For the envelope:
- Adhere a sweet bumblebee sticker from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack to the front of the envelope.
- Adhere a panel of 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap, trim and the card is DONE!
