While I await my SU!n delivery (TODAY!) I’m playing with one of my favorites from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog ~ the Boho Indigo Product Medley. This is retiring and I’m so disappointed I haven’t played with it more. I think I kept saving it 😦 The medley remains at full price but the refill kit is only $13 and change! This set is just so stunning: stamps, dies, stickers, flowers, labels and 6×6 DSP. What I have made with this set today is a triple-fold birthday card. Let’s look.
Gorgeous, gorgeous papers in this 6×6… and you see several of them here. So this is a fun fold and it just is so neat… here’s a photo with the belly band removed.
- 5 1/2 x 11 card base scored at 1 3/4, 5 1/2, 9 3/4 (this is Night of Navy)
- Fold on the 5 1/2 score line, then fold to the left the other two flaps & burnish all score lines.
- Create belly band 1 x 11, fold around and adhere the overlap, making certain it is not too snug.
- Decorate! This is the fun part ‘cuz you are unlimited!
Just creating the folds leaves all kinds of possibilities for what to do next, but here’s what i’ve done. I used one of the Very Vanilla embossed pieces in the 6×6 DSP pack and adhered it to the front of the card with liquid glue. I went ahead and decorated it at this point: die cut a vase with one of the Boho Indigo dies. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it so it would show when the front flap was closed. I adhered the big palm fronds with liquid glue, then the other larger leaf with liquid glue on the lower stem and a dimensional on the upper part of the frond. I added a gold flower sticker also with dimensionals and that part was done. Next I added all the cut strips with liquid glue (card cuts are at the bottom of this post). My last step was the Very Vanilla panel for the inside.
I stamped the vase on the Very Vanilla panel with Night of Navy ink. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green ink and wished I had done something brighter. I stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink – and this sentiment comes from Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set (and it is carrying over :O) For a final touch I added three paper flowers from the Boho Indigo Product Medley, with glue dots. I then adhered the Very Vanilla panel into the card. The last bit was to take one of the banners from the medley and add a sentiment to it… also from the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set and in Crumb Cake ink. I adhered it with Stampin’ Seal and the card was done. Oh my goodness, so easy peasy!
To decorate the belly band I simply used one of the banner labels in the product medley, stamped a sentiment on it from the Boho Indigo stamp set in Night of navy ink. I adhered it to the belly band with liquid glue. The last bit was to put a panel of the 6×6 DSP from this product medley on the envelope flap and the card was ready. WOW! OH MY – I just may crank out a bunch of these – sympathy, thank you, masculine (well, masculine might need to be with other Designer Series Papers.) At any rate, I encourage you to give this fun fold a try..
