Welcome back to 2023 – January 2! Which means… by January 3 please let me know your desire for a Paper Share… 😀 I’ll add that information below as a refresher for you. Today’s card is unfortunately a sympathy card and will go out immediately. I never seem to have enough of these, ugh. It is also a tent fold.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy
Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy.2

Do you see in photo 2 how the tent fold looks? It is so incredibly simple – an added piece of card stock adhered to the front & card back.

Isn’t this Fancy Flora DSP just wonderful? This particular pattern is Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, & shades of both. I’ve added a bit of Shimmer Ribbon in Gold behind the sentiment banner. The sentiment comes from Something Fancy & is stamped in Basic Gray ink on Basic White. It was die cut with the Something Fancy Dies. I also used a retired product called Red & Green Adhesive-Backed Pearls in Silver.

Now, let’s take a look at the back of the card.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy.3

I’ve kept with the same colors: Daffodil Delight & Basic Gray, stamping each of the flower detail as the second step. The flowers are just stunning to me with the magic of the detail. I stamped the leaf images in Soft Succulent – all on Basic White and matted it on a Basic Gray panel then adhered it to the back.

The last is the envelope… more of the Fancy Flora DSP for the flap, trimmed to fit. For the front of the envelope, I stamped these sweet small flowers, again using Daffodil Delight as the fill and Basic Gray for the detail.The flowers and leaves all are from Two-Tone Flora – just a beautiful stamp set. And while I didn’t use the dies for this card, it does have coordinating dies – 10% off when purchasing the bundle. That is also available coming January 5, 2023. If you don’t have a Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog, please let me know so I can send one ASAP! And of course I’ll include the Sale-a-bration catalog as well – it’s good Jan-Feb and has lots of fun products FREE with every $50-$100 purchase. YAY!

Please pardon my delay in getting this info to you. Hubby had surgery today & my mind has been a bit disconnected to say the least. The Dr says he is doing well and I’ll be able to see him in a couple of hours. Whew!!!

A Paper Share allows you to try a sample of all the new papers in the catalog and then you can decide what you love and you can go back and order more of your favorites!  Basically, it’s a sampling of all the papers but you get enough of each paper to BE CREATIVE!
