Stampin’ Up! Fancy Flora Step Fun Fold for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the hop! This is a talented group of folks with whom I am privileged to participate. And this week we have a color challenge!

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop 3/6
Stampin' Up! Blog Hop Color Challenge 3/6

The colors I chose were Orchid Oasis, Calypso Coral , and Soft Succulent . Plus of course, the Fancy Flora DSP that brings it all together. Here’s my Step Fun Fold.

Stampin' Up! Step Fun Fold.hop 3/6

I used Orchid Oasis as the card base, cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. I also used the Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP for the main focus. I wanted a continuity, all of it cut to piece together like a puzzle. And, I think it worked! I also stamped the flower in Calypso Coral ink and the leaves in Soft Succulent ink for the ferny kind of leaves, and Evening Evergreen ink for the 2 leaves. I used the Two-Tone Flora stamp set & Two-Tone Flora Dies to create the flowers & leaves. The sentiment is stamped using the Something Fancy stamp set with Orchid Oasis ink on a Basic White panel and die cut with the Something Fancy Dies. I added three small Pearl Basic Jewels around the die cut flower for a bit of femininity.

It stands like this…

This is a side view when standing, so you can see how it folds and makes a ‘step’. It’s super easy, you just must be extra careful making the cuts correctly and the score lines. The template below should guide you.

It’s easier to show a template with score lines and cuts than to explain it. Here that is… dotted lines are score lines. You may need to enlarge this to see it better :O)

Stampin' Up! Step Fun Fold Template

On the back of the card is Basic White panel stamped using the Two-Tone Flora stamp set and Orchid Oasis ink. Please understand, there are two places this panel could be placed: on the back as I did here, or on the inside. Since this card was going to my hubby’s sister, he got to choose the placement :O)

It’s clear here, the stamped panel for the back, the full card open (just not standing!), and the inside of the card – again where a stamped panel could be placed.

Stampin' Up! Step Fun Fold card & envelope

For the envelope, more of this gorgeous Fancy Flora DSP on the flap and some fun stamped flowers in Orchid Oasis ink from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set. Gorgeous, gorgeousness. Hope you like… my hubby was thrilled to send this to his sister.
