Greetings again… it’s Friday and I’ve a Fun Fold for Friday 🙂 (alliterations are fun). This one is made with the gorgeous Beautifully Penned DSP that is a FREE product during Sale-a-bration. It’s Black & White and therefore ~ can be colored to your hearts desire. I’ve chosen Mango Melody cuz it’s kinda fall-ish, but it could be any color.
Now, if you’re an English fanatic, the sentiment on the front of this card could be problematic. It really should read BREATHE DEEPLY. But w’re flexible in the card making business 🙂 The sentiment comes from the Reflected In Nature stamp set found in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. And the two photos below show how this card opens.
I colored this beautiful DSP by using the Blending Brush and Mango Melody ink. One of the things I like is that the color is not solid – there are gradations of color. Of course, it could be solid, the same all over by simply continuing to add color to the paper.
The card stock for the card base is Mango Melody. The coordinating card stock is Cinnamon Cider. And, there’s a bit of Cork Paper on the front. Gosh, it stamps nicely! And of course there’s Basic White.
I used Early Espresso ink to stamp both sentiments and the fall bunch for the card front. Early Espresso is such a rich brown.
The splotch comes from Nature’s Harvest stamp set, as does the flower. The splotch was stamped in Mango Melody stamped off once. And the flower for the front was colored with Stampin’ Markers: Mango Melody and Soft Succulent and die cut with the coordinating Harvest Dies.
The envelope was super easy to decorate: stamp the flower in Early Espresso and use the blotch to add a bit of color. I stamped off first, stamped and then stamped again in a different direction, without re-inking. For the flap, I adhered the Beautifully Penned DSP that had been colored with the Blending Brush & Mango Melody ink to the flap, then die cut with the Basic Borders Dies. I really like this extra element of charm to the envelope. I haven’t used these dies for this in the past, but I think you will see more of this from me.
