Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy Sympathy Fun Fold

Good Monday to you. Sympathy cards are so very difficult and yet, necessary. Have I said that before? I tend to make sympathy cards for a specific person – and maybe that’s why it’s hard for me. I’m remembering the person who passed and get focused on the memories. So I struggle a bit. This card is in memory of a special woman, one who battled Lewey Body Dementia for six very long years. She and her husband have been so amazingly strong. And now her battle is over and she is at peace.

I’m using some new products from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog:the Something Fancy stamp set and coordinating Something Fancy Dies. Notice how Stampin’ Up! is now using same names for coordinating stamp sets & dies?! YAY, YAY! Thank you Stampin’ Up! Here is the stamp set & coordinating dies. I’m excited to have some wonderful banner/ sentiment dies.

And now my card…

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Sympathy Fun Fold.1

Fun Fold.2

The DSP is Fitting Florets 12×12 DSP – available right now. It coordinates with the Framed Florets bundle – the Fitting Florets Collection. Let me tell you how to make this beautiful card.

Begin with a standard 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base and score on the long side 1″ and 4 1/4″. Fold back the 1″ area on itself. Decorate panels… I used the Fitting Florets DSP and also used the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder in two areas. The front embossed piece is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. After embossing, it was adhered to a larger panel 2 3/4 x 3 3/4. I used one of the dies in the Framed Florets Dies to trim out a flower from the Fitting Florets 12×12 DSP. I stamped the sentiment from Something Fancy stamp set and die cut it with one of the dies in the Something Fancy Dies. I adhered the die cut floral bouquet to the front of this sentiment banner, put dimensionals on the back of both and attached it to the rectangle. The rectangle was adhered to the 1″ panel, centering in top to bottom. Really like this Quatrefoil EF as a backdrop for the sentiment & floral bouquet.

For the inside on the left, a panel of the Fitting Florets 12×12 DSP. On the right a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip embossed with the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder adhered to the far right edge. I then stamped the sentiment from Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy ink. I added Adhesive-Backed Swirls~ and the card was done. I really like how this card turned out: beautiful for a beautiful woman.

For the envelope – super easy – more of the Fitting Florets DSP adhered to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit.

Stampin’ Up! Fitting Florets Collection, Birthday Fun Fold

It’s Friday and I’m off to a Stampin’ Up! Convention ~ headed to Jacksonville, FL. Yes, it should be raining but it may clear by mid day 😀 I’m taking a rain coat… Today’s card uses many of the items in the Fitting Florets Collection: Framed Florets and the coordinating Framed Florets Dies (notice how Stampin’ Up! ‘heard’ our pleas to use same titles for coordinating dies!), the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls and the absolutely lovely Fitting Florets DSP. And ~ this is a fun fold.

Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection. Birthday

This Fitting Florets DSP is simply gorgeous! And I especially love this particular pattern. I hated covering it with the beautiful Framed Florets Dies, but alas, it was necessary. I wanted to show off these beautiful framing dies. After die cutting in Basic White, this becomes two pieces – the center oval and the outside elaborate frame. I stamped the center oval with a sentiment from the Framed Florets in Evening Evergreen ink; adhered the outside frame to the DSP, centering it. I put dimensionals on the center oval and added it to the framed outline. I added the very pretty (and flat) Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to highlight the sentiment. I debated and debated about adding more of the die cuts available, but I really liked the simplicity of this. The DSP was adhered to Balmy Blue card stock then to the Night of Navy A2 card front.

Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection, Birthday.inside

For the inside, I took another piece of the Fitting Florets DSP and adhered it to the left side. I stamped the small leaf image and the berry ‘spray’ in Evening Evergreen ink and colored with Soft Succulent Blends for the leaves and Balmy Blue Blends for the ‘berries’. I also stamped the sentiment from the Fitting Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.

Next I created the ‘fun fold’ portion – and here’s how… cut a panel of Night of Navy card stock 4 3/4 x 8 and score at 2, 4, and 6.
Burnish well. Mark 2″ from the bottom on the right side. Trim from the top left corner to the 2″ mark on the right corner. Adhere panels from the Fitting Florets DSP cut at 1 7/8″. To get the correct angle on the DSP, prior to adhering…cut the panels 1 7/8 x 4 3/4 then lay down on table with the Night of Navy piece on top of it. With a ruler, mark the angle on the DSP. Trim 1/8″ off each bottom strip. Lay on top of card stock to see if any more trimming needs to be done, then adhere in place. This is called an Accordion Fun Fold.

Add far left panel to left side of inside of card, centering. I wanted my fun fold section to line up on the bottom with the DSP & Basic White panels. Adhere right section of the fold to the right inside panel. Here’s what it should look like looking down from the top.


Stampin' Up!
 Fitting Florets Colloection, Birthday fun fold.3

Now decorate the rest of the inside to your desire. Here’s what I did… stamp the two smaller flowers on a Basic White scrap in Evening Evergreen ink using the Framed Florets stamp set. Color both with Stamp’ Blends in Soft Succulent; die cut with Framed Florets Dies. Die cut a small leaf from Gold Foil Sheets (I used a scrap. Adhere each with liquid glue as shown.

For the envelope… more of the same Fitting Florets DSP adhered to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. I then stamped the larger of the two small flowers in Evening Evergreen ink and this time colored them with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. It matches the flowers in the DSP! I then stamped the leaves in Evening Evergrren ink and colored with Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. They too, match the DSP 😊
