Fun Fold

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Fun Fold

Hello again! It’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop Group… and the theme is “Fall Frenzy”. Check out my card…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest

Whoa… the colors on my card are clashing with the the blog hop logo – yikes! But it just doesn’t matter!!! My card… these Leaf Labels are so fun to play with – here I added some color to the edges with sponge daubers and several inks: Poppy Parade, Evening Evergreen and Crushed Curry. I kept them pretty soft. And in the middle is stamped the simple word ‘hello’ from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I love this font! I also added some of the Amber Gems that come packaged with the Leaf Labels. But I’m ahead of myself… perhaps we should begin with the card base 🥴 I like layers as you know, so: Crushed Curry card base layered with Crumb Cake then Rings of Love DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product order!) The next is the fun fold part… Crushed Curry 3 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 14. Layer the front with Crumb Cake, then Gingham Cottage DSP in So Saffron. Take another piece of Crushed Curry 2 1/2 x 4 14 and lay it crosswise on the front and adhere with dimensionals. Run a slightly smaller panel of Crumb cake through the Timber 3D embossing folder and add it to this Crushed Curry piece. Now we decorate…

  • Ink the leaf stamp from Hello Harvest stamp set, in Crushed Curry, stamp off and with sponge daubers add a bit of color to the leaf tips: Evening Evergreen and Poppy Parade. Do this twice cleaning between each process, then die cut using the coordinating Rustic Pumpkin Dies. Before putting this stamp away, stamp a 4 x 5 14 Basic White panel and the envelope front following the same procedure.
  • Place the two die cut leaves, one under the Leaf Label and one on top. Add a twirly stem die cut using the Rustic Pumpkin Dies and Garden Green card stock scrap.
  • Adhere all these to the embossed Crushed Curry piece.
  • Add the bow made from separated strings of Baker’s Twine in White and Crumb Cake… with a dab of liquid glue.

Add this folded panel to the card base (remember the three layers that started the card), centering it. Now decorate the inside of the folded portion: Crumb Cake layer, then decorated Basic White layer.

  • The Basic White layer… stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede ink using this wonderful sentiment from Hello Harvest stamp set.
  • Stamp two flowers in Memento Black ink on either side of the sentiment. Color the flowers with Stampin’ Blends Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede
Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Fun Fold, inside

Now turn the completed card over and add the Basic White panel stamped with the leaf from Hello Harvest.

Envelope: Remember the front has already been stamped with the leaf from Harvest Hello. Now add more of the same Gingham Cottage to the flap and your card is complete :O)

I should have taken a photo of the card standing, it would have shown the dimension and given a different view. Oh well…another time… Now it’s time to head over to the next team member participating this month. Feel free to use the ‘buttons’ or click on a name to see that blog.

Stampin’ Up! Faux Step Fun Fold

Hello again… what’s it like in your part of the world? Warm, chilly, rainy, sunny? It’s been uber hot here lately and plants hav e suffered for it. Me – I’m fortunate to have sir conditioning and have stayed inside quite a bit. Whatever your weather, taken care of yourself, ok?

I decided to play with a fold I hadn’t done before and it was super easy. I used the Rings of Nature DSP that’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase. It’s beautiful paper! And I brought in some elements from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog as well. Of course, card stock is in the Annual Catalog, so guess I used products from all three – ha!

Stampin' Up! Faux Step Fun Fold

What do you think? It looks pretty easy doesn’t it? So, let me talk you through it.

  • Two elements of card base: the short one and the tall one.
    • Poppy Parade 2 1/2 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 & burnish
    • Poppy Parade 4 1/4 x 9 scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2 & 5 3/4 & burnish; mountain, valley, mountain
  • Layer the tall front panel with Mint Macaron 2 1/4 x 5 1/4; layer DSP (Rings of Nature) 2 x 5 onto that
  • Cut a piece of Basic White for the back of the tall panel (2 1/4 x 5 1/4) & decorate. I stamped it with the super cute flower from Nature’s Prints stamp set by inking the flower part with Poppy Parade marker and the stem with Crumb Cake marker. I huffed on it and stamped. Adhere to the back of the tall panel and set aside.
Stampin' Up! Faux Step 
Fun Fold
  • Take a Textural Element and add Pearlized Enamel Effects to each tip. Set aside to dry & firm.
Stampin' Up! Faux Step Fun Fold
  • Cut a piece of DSP (Rings of Nature) 3×4 and adhere to the larger panel
  • Adhere the tall panel to the small section in front, centering it.
  • Close both pieces and adhere the tall panel to the back of the shorter , folded piece
  • Decorate the front of the tall panel.
    • Die cut a single leaf spray in Mint Macaron using the natural Prints Dies.
    • Adhere a Textural Element to that.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink on a Basic White scrap and die cut with a Layering Circles Die. Put dimesnionals on the back of the circle being aware of where it will be attached.
  • Add circle to the card front.
  • Slip the Textural Element in behind the circle
  • Separate strands of White Baker’s Twine and Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine and tie to make a bow. Attach to the Textural Element with a glue dot. These are both part of the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack.
  • Add Amber Gems to the circle for added glam. These are from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems Pack.

Now that the card is complete, decorate the envelope. I did this simply by adhering Rings of Nature DSP to the flap and a 1/2″ strip to the front of the envelope.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints and Sun Prints for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello & happy Thursday! It’s our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with a color challenge… and you can see my card that I created for it. Nature’s Prints and the coordinating Sun Prints DSP are just so perfect together. It doesn’t mean they MUST be used together ~ they just CAN BE… and I did! And – it’s a fun fold to boot. Not sure what to call it… I’m going to call it an envelope fold, cuz that’s what it looks like to me. :O)

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints & Sun Prints, fun fold

I began with a piece of Pacific Point card stock as it coordinates so nicely with the Sun Prints DSP. I scored then trimmed the right side as shown… marking the center point and trimming 1″ in from the top & bottom to the center mark.. It really is important to be very precise in your cutting – ask me how I know that! Trim 1/8″ from the left edge of the card base so it does not interfere with the fold. Cut your Sun Prints DSP: panel for the left front and another for the right pointy part. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post. Cut your center panel in Basic White. Stamp this Basic White panel.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints DSP, fun fold

I used the leaf stamp from Nature’s Prints and Starry Sky ink, stamped the first leaf full strength and continued with the next two without re-inking. I stamped the sentiment from Nature’s Prints stamp set in the same Starry Sky ink, stamped off once. Adhere this to the inside of the card.

Back to the front of the card… I used a 1 5/9 circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut the circle in the pointy part of the fun fold. I cut another circle in Thick Basic White with the same circle die and stamped it: sentiment in stamped off Starry Sky, then the two portions of the fern – inking, stamping off, then stamping in place. The sentiment and the fern leaf are from the Nature’s Prints stamp set. I closed the card and adhered the circle to the left portion of the card but in the place of the hole of the right side. Does that make sense? I adhered it with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints with Sun Prints , fun fold

To keep the envelope fun fold closed, I cut a piece of the Sun Prints DSP with the very smallest of the Layering Circles Dies.. I also cut another circle from Pacific Point card stock and adhered these two together, put a few dimensionals on the back and with the card closed, put the small circle in place.

Stampin' Up! nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

I stamped the sentiment – again from Nature’s Prints stamp set in full strength Starry Sky on a Basic White strip. I did a bit of fussy cutting then adhered it to another piece of Pacific Point and adhered it to the card front on the cut ‘like envelope’ side. I added three Classic Matte Dots and the card was done!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

For the envelope… another of the wonderful nature images stamped on the envelope front and flap with Starry Sky ink, the flap image stamped off. And that was it! Pretty simple really. The tricky part is the cutting to the center of the piece and trimming the DSP perfectly.

Now, take a few moments to work your way through this fun hop.

Stampin’ Up! Angled Gatefold

Hello there! It’s Tuesday and time for another fun fold design I think you will like. It features the Happy Forest Friends DSP in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and the stamp bundle, Happier Than Happy stamp set along with its coordinating dies. I didn’t use the coordinating dies but did pull in dies from All That Dies from He’s All That bundle to use on the belly band.

Angled Gatefold.1

Is this pretty DSP? Calypso Coral is its main feature and I’ve used that color for the card base. I’ve seen this style card on Pinterest a lot and have wanted to give it a try. The tricky part is the layering pieces and getting the proper angles. It took me a couple of tries, but I’m pretty please with the final card. There are plenty of videos for you to see first-hand how this is done, but I will try to explain it. I do encourage a watching a video though!

The card base is 5 1/2 x 11, scored at 3 3/8 from each side. With the inside of the card facing down, measure down 1 1/2″ from the top right corner: trim from the score line to the 1 1/2″ mark. With the inside of the card still facing down, measure in 1″ along the bottom of the card and trim from the corner just cut to the 1″ mark. Do the same on the other side. Refer to these two photos for reference.

Angled Gatefold.2
Angled Gatefold.3

The next step is to cut the same angles on a 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 piece of DSP. Tricks here are to make certain which papers you desire for each side and trimming them properly :O) For me, I decided to use computer paper to make a template – and that took a couple of tries to get the cut the way I wanted it. I used that template to cut the Happy Forrest Friends DSP, then adhered it in place with liquid glue. Make sure the papers line up on the bottom edge in particular, so when the card is closed, they are even. Here’s a photo without the belly band on the card.

Angled Gatefold.4

Now work on the inside… On a Basic White panel 4 x 51/4, I stamped this uber-cute bear in Smoky Slate ink. I then stamped the two leaf sprays, also in the same ink. I used the sentiment from Happier Than Happy stamp set & Calypso Coral ink to stamp the words. I adhered this in place with liquid glue. and created the belly band.

Angled Gatefold, inside.5

The belly band is 1 x 10 in Calypso Coral and scored at one end at 2 1/4″. Wrap this around the card with the scored end to the left and fold the other side over, firming the second fold. Add Tear n’ Tape to each end and secure while around the card. This helps make the belly band not too tight :O) … ask me how I know that! Decorate the belly band: In Smoky Slate card stock, make the rectangle using a die from the All That Dies. Secure in place on the belly band, covering the fold over, with liquid glue. Die cut this fun-edged circle with another die from All That Dies and Basic White card stock. Stamp the sentiment from Eden’s Garden with Smoky Slate ink. Before placing the circle over the rectangle, i felt it needed a bit of trim – and came up with Pale Papaya Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon. I secured it to the rectangle with Stampin’ Seal, then added the circle with dimensionals. Three Classic Matte Dots in gray were added to tie it all together.

Angled Gatefold.1

For the envelope I added more of the Happy Forrest Friends DSP to the flap and that was it!

Angled Gatefold.6

This card is going to a friend who is moving, so the inside sentiment, hello baby, is an endearing term for friend. At least, that’s how I’m using it! If this were a true baby card, I would use totally different DSP…

Stampin’ Up! Floating Gatefold Card

Such a fun card… and I used the Hippest Hippo bundle from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. These two items – stamp set & dies – are separate items that can be earned with purchases of $50 each. And remember, during Sale-a-bration, all these items are while supplies last. Once gone, g-o-n-e! Here’s this fun card.

Floating Gatefold. Hippo.1

This gal is one dancin’ ballerina – on a bucket :O) which is adhered with dimensionals. Pacific Point card base, Basic White layer, Brights 6×6 DSP in Pacific Point. The hippo is colored with Blends: Light Smoky Slate & SU900; the skirt is Dark Highland Heather; Basic Black marker for the ballerina shoes, then die cut and added with dimensionals. The flowers are die cut from So Saffron and have Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels in the center and added with dabs of liquid glue. The sentiment is stamped in Memento ink on Basic White, then die cut with Stylish Shapes Dies and added with a dimensional.

Floating Gatefold. Hippo. inside

This is what makes this a ‘floating’ gatefold, the inside. These super cute hippos ‘float’ on the card with a definite 3 dimension. Coloring is the same as the hippo on the front. Additional blends: Dark Cherry Cobbler for the flower and Dark Shaded Spruce for the leaf. Additional die cuts are in Real Red and So Saffron. Don’t you just love the eye glasses?! I will be adding a Basic White panel to the back of the card for writing a note.

Floating Gatefold. Hippo. inside help
Floating Gatefold. Hippo. more inside help

These two photos indicate the ‘floating’ mechanism, the strip. They also show where the small squares should line up – no higher/ or lower than the inside Basic White liner. The floating mechanism or strip is first attached to the square, then to the card gatefold (you can see this in the second ‘more inside help’ photo), then to the inside panel. All stamping or additional die cuts are added to the inside panel AFTER the Hippo & mechanism have been added. This way you know exactly where the open spaces are and the card easily lays flat for these additions. Sorry… should have taken a photo of the card totally flat but didn’t think of it 🥴

Card cuts…

  • Pacific Point:
    • card base – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at one end at 2 1/8, fold other end over ton meet it & burnish
    • front layer – 3 x 4
    • inside squares – 2 1/2 (cut 2)
    • additional scrap for bucket
  • DSP: Brights 6×6 DSP in Pacific Point 1 7/8 x 1 7/8 (cut 2 for front gatefolds)
  • Basic White:
    • 2 x 5 3/8 (cut 2 for front gatefolds)
    • 3 1/4 x 4 14 (front layer)
    • 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 (front layer for die cuts)
    • additional pieces for stamping & die cutting hippos, circle die cut & inside sentiment on strip
    • 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 (inside liner)

Thank you, Dawn Griffith, for the inspiration!

Stampin’ Up! Flip Flop Fun Fold

This Hippest Hippos bundle is just too fun. The looks on their faces AND the stances – well… make really cute cards. A real pick me up if someone isn’t feeling well, or a child’s card, an anniversary. Lots of options, just your creative mind to decide how to use them. And you can get these FREE when placing an order of $100. They are from the Sale-a-bration Catalog – each come with a $50 order. So in order to get both, ypou know, order $100 worth of product! Today’s card is a ‘fun fold’ and is designated a ‘flip flop’ by one of my teammates: Rosie Kean. Thank you Rosie for this fun, fun fold!

Flip Flop Fun Fold.1

Hopefully you can see, it’s like a double card: the front is the flip of the small insert, the flop is the diagonal portion that flops back to see the inside. :O) I started with the main card base in Poll Party card stock, standard size, then made the diagonal cut from the fold to the lower right corner of the card front. Next step was the layering: Basic White and Subtles 6×6 DSP in Pool Party. It’s helpful not to use DSP that has a definitive up & down pattern, but it can be done. Because the DSP is double sided, I simply used the other side of the diagonal cut for for the inside. Of course, this requires two pieces of the DSP, the second being the inside back layer.

Flip Flop Fun Fold.3
Flip Flop Fun Fold.2

  • The next is to create the smaller card. Again, Pool Party card stock and adhered with liquid glue to the center of the inside back. Now to the fun part of creating the decorated panel.
  • Stamp the hippo in Memento ink on a Basic White piece.
  • Color the hippo with Stampin’ Blends: Light Smoky Slate and Petal Pink. I even colored the nails, ‘cuz this is a girl hippo! The flower is Light Cherry Cobbler and the leaf is Light Shaded Spruce. Die cut this hippo with the Hippo Dies, put dimensionals on the back and set aside.
  • With more of the Hippo Dies, cut the hearts from Real Red, the ground from Pear Pizzazz and the grasses from Garden Green. The little flower is die cut from So Saffron.
  • With Blending Brushes and a Basic White panel, create the sun with So Saffron ink, then add sky with Balmy Blue ink as a bottom layer, then add a bit of Pool Party ink for sky variety :O) Blend these into the sun so there isn’t a line.
  • Adhere ground, grasses and hearts with liquid glue. Add flower with a mini dimensional cut in half.
  • Add the hippo – remember it’s on dimensionals too.
  • Now stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray ink
  • Adhere this completed panel to the smaller card front.
  • Decorate with sentiment or stamping, the inside of the smaller card – on a Basic White panel. As you can see, I did not complete that panel yet – and it is not adhered in place either! This is going to a friend of mine who just had a hip replacement… too perfect with the sentiment, right?!! So I have to finish that today and get it in the mail.

Envelope… Cover the flap in more of the Subtles 6×6 DSP using Pool Party.

Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold with Caroling Mice for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! You may have come over from visiting the creative Tara Carpenter – didn’t she have something fun? OR… you may be just ‘hopping’ in :O). Whatever the case, may you enjoy the creations you see today.

Our challenge this week is ‘Critters’ and we can interpret that any way we like. I chose Caroling Mice, which is a new HOST stamp set in the July – December Mini Catalog. You should have received yours from me by now… if not and you don’t have a demonstrator, let me know!

And here’s my card. Hubby & I are in a choir and this just seemed too fun to pass up – and a Christmas card already!

Caroling Mice Z-Fold.1

The larger Z-fold card base is Garden Green, scored and with Real Red card stock added to the two end panels. The middle panel is Real Red Glimmer Paper, part of the Real Red & White 6×6 Glimmer Paper pack. The DSP adhered to the two end panels is Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 cut to size. Card cuts are at the end of this post.

The smaller z-fold is a card base of Garden Green again, but this time I used the Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP for base layers on all three panels then a stamped panel of Basic White. Of course the stamped panels are from the Caroling Mice stamp set, stamped in Memento ink for the mouse and Garden Green ink for the tree. I colored the mouse with Watercolor Pencils and used the Blender Pen to smooth the pencil lines. :O) The music notes are stamped in Memento ink & colored with the Basic Black Marker. I added Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in both Sweet Sorbet & Garden Green to enhance those stamped panels.

To adhere the two Z-folds together, I centered the smaller Z-Fold (closed) on the largest of the large Z-fold and adhered it in place. I closed the larger Z-Fold card and adhered the smaller Z-Fold to the front panel with liquid glue just on the left portion of the smaller Z-fold. Voila! done… When the card is closed, the smaller Z-fold totally covers itself :O) See photo 1

Caroling Mice Z-Fold.2
Caroling Mice Z-Fold.3

I turned the card over and adhered another Real Red panel to the largest of the sections on the back. I stamped the three Caroling Mice in Memento ink, then VersaMark ink, then sprinkled it with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. I ran it through the Stitched With Whimsy Dies to give it a fun border, then colored the singing mice with Watercolor Pencils and the Blender Pen. I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink using the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set from the same July-December Mini Catalog. I adhered this completed Basic White panel to the back of the card and my first Christmas Card of the 2022 season is done!!! Who would have guessed… here it is only Jun 16!!!

Caroling Mice Z-Fold.4

Fun card, right? The Z-fold is so easy… The main trick is centering the first panel, then the other goes on easily… bing, bang, boom.

Stampin’ Up! Book Fold w/ Easel

Hello Sunday! Oh golly – our out of state family arrives today!!! So excited, ‘cuz it’s been a while. I’ve pulled out more DSP to share – from Awash in Beauty and more Hues of Happiness. And I’ve used them on a book fold with an easel. Such a fun and easy fold to do. Plus it adds a special touch with the easel. :O)

Book Fold Easel Card.1

Photo 1 shows the card flat. Photo 2 shows the card w/ the easel. What makes it a book fold is the left part that is adhered together (see the panel?). The easel is the ‘stand-uppy’ part. :O)

Book Fold Easel Card.2

How fun is that??? I like to cut all my pieces and add them to the layering card stock, then add to the card base. So, cut the Awash in Beauty 12 x 12 DSP for the card front and adhere to the Polished Pink layer. The card base is Thick Basic White, scored at 5 1/2 then scored again at 6 3/4. Turn the card and score the right panel from corner to corner diagonally. Burnish the score lines: the 6 3/4 becomes a valley and the diagonal score becomes a mountain – as you see in photo 2. What makes it a book fold is adhering the narrow strip to itself (from the 5 1/2 to the 6 3/4 – that 1 1/4 area is adhered to the back of the card base. Now adhere the Polished Pink panels to the coordinating panels on the card base. (all card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post BTW.) With the Blossoming Happiness Dies and the Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP, die cut leaves and the large rose and small rose for the inside. The Happiness Abounds Bundle (10% less when purchased as a bundle) coordinates with the Hues of Happiness DSP – intentionally, for this very purpose. It makes it so easy to add dimension and loveliness to a card. I fussy cut the blue flowers from Awash in Beauty DSP, adhered it to the back of the large rose, keeping in mind, the fold. I did the same with the die cut leaves – added them with liquid glue to the back of the rose. The rose got dimensionals just where it would attach to the easel fold, primarily the bottom half of the rose, then added it to the easel. VOILA!

Book Fold Easel Card.3

The inside is quick… adhere the Basic White panel to the Polished Pink piece, then to the inside of the card. The Rose, die cut from Hues of Happiness DSP, is attached with a couple of dimensionals so it’s raised a bit and holds the fold in place. The final touch was adding three Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card: flower center + two more just to the left of the rose. Easy peasy, right?! Here’s another show of the easel fold.

Book Fold Easel Card.4

Ok, envelope… I embossed a Polished Pink panel with the super fun Stripes & Splatters 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the flap. Of course – I used the Splatters, as you can see. And for the envelope front, a fussy cut flower from the Awash in Beauty DSP adhered with liquid glue.

Stampin’ Up! Simple Fun Fold for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi folks! It’s Thursday… and almost the weekend :O) We have family coming as it’s my hubby’s birthday on Monday… lots of cleaning & preparing goin on. So excited to see them. And the Grands (two of them anyway) will be staying for the week.YAY! Anyway.. off the subject of our blog hop. We have a sketch challenge – take a look see. You may have come from the blog of fabulous Tara Carpenter ~ welcome to my page.

And here’s my card ~ note I have turned it sideways.

Simple Fun Fold. Blog Hop 6/9.1

Sun Prints 12 x 12 DSP & Nature’s Prints stamp set are just perfect for a ‘Thinking of You’ sympathy card. I’ve used a Night of Navy card base to create this fun fold ~ 1/4 of a regular 8 1/2 x 11 – a totally flat panel. The key to this is the center ‘card’ – that’s where the fun fold comes in. The center panel is the ‘fold’The main image is stamped in Starry Sky ink on a Basic White panel using my Stamparatus, then clean the stamp and use VersaMark to over-stamp the same image in the same place, sprinkle with CLEAR embossing powder & heat set with your heat tool. This creates a beautiful shiny, elegant appearance. My next step was to use a Blending Brush and the Starry Sky ink to soften the edges of the Basic White panel. Looks similar to a shadow, doesn’t it? For more elegance, I added two Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels. This was added to the center ‘folded card’ with liquid glue. It’s just so simple & elegant ~ what a beautiful appealing look. The ‘folded card’ was added to the center of the card base – remember it’s a flat panel.

The side pieces are from the Sun Prints 12 x 12 DSP and adhered with liquid glue. (Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post!)

The inside of the card… again, super simple & elegant. I adhered the same stripe from the Sun Prints 12 x 12 DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel. I then stamped the sentiment in Starry Sky ink from the Go To Greetings stamp set. One Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels on either side of the sentiment completed the look. This panel was adhered to the inside… and done.

For the envelope: another of the Sun Prints 12 x 12 DSP patterns on the flap and a stamped nature ‘staff’ from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Starry Sky ink on the front of the envelope.

So here’s a question you may be asking… why Night of Navy for the card base when everything else is Starry Sky? Good question! I wanted subtlety and since this was a sympathy card, I wanted it to not be too bright, too focused on color~ and the Night of Navy did that for me. Hope you like!
