Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Fun Fold
Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Fun Fold, inside

This is a great card to show off both sides of the Designer Series Paper. In this case, that is Perfectly Penciled DSP (retiring). I’ve coordinated the Hand Penned stamp set (retiring) and the Penned Flowers Dies (retiring), Polished Pink card stock (retiring), Polished Pink & Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends (retiring) + the Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya (retiring). Yep – I loaded this card with retiring items :O)

What is not retiring that is used on this card are the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends (still a great buy when you order $75 & up of product on FREE SHIPPING day), Basic White card stock, Memento ink, Basic White Medium Envelopes. Did I forget anything?

So the ‘how to’ to make this card.

Begin with your Perfectly Penciled DSP cutting it 5 1/4 x 12 and scoring on the long side @ 2, 4, 8, and 10″. Measure down from the top on each end, 2 5/8″ and place a mark on the edge. Now trim from the 4″ score line to the 2 5/8″ mark on the left side. Do the same on the right side, trimming from the 8″ score down to the 2 5/8″ mark. Adhere those pieces to each corner edge (see the dotted pattern in each bottom corner? Burnish the folds completely.

Cut a backing card base (in this case Polished Pink) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhere to the back of the DSP. This creates strength for the card.

Cut another piece in Polished Pink 2 1/2 x 2 1/2. Adhere this panel with corner points on the burnished score line, with adhesive on the left side only. Adhere a Basic White panel cut to 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 to the Polished Pink square. Now decorate!

For decoration… Using the Hand Penned stamp set, I stamped this fun floral image in Memento ink on Basic White, colored it with Stampin’ Blends: Polished Pink, Pale Papaya and Old Olive. I die cut the image with the coordinating Penned Flower Dies and attached it to the Basic White square with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink on a Basic White scrap – yes, also from Hand Penned stamp set – and fussy cut it. This was attached with dimensionals as well. I tied a bow with the Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya and attached it with a glue dot. Front, done!

For the inside.. the Basic White panel is cut 3 3/4 x 5. I wanted to be certain when stamping the inside, that nothing showed when the card was closed. I ‘eyeballed’ a bit lower than center and stamped the sentiment from Hand Penned stamp set in memento ink. I then stamped the flowers, also from Hand Penned stamp set, in Polished Pink ink. I attached this panel to the inside – and voila! a fun fold and gorgeous!

For the envelope… more of the Perfectly Penciled DSP to the flap, trimmed to fit. For the front… a sweet stamped flower in Polished Pink ink from the Hand Penned stamp set.

I want to see what you create with this fun fold, retiring DSP or new. Enjoy creating!

Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day.

Make someone happy sending them a handmade card filled with love.
