Fun Fold

Stampin’ Ip! Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, Ornate Borders Dies

Todays Card is a fun use of the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Borders Dies. It’s a panel card, at least that’s what I’m calling it, meaning it doesn’t open 🙂 It simply has a panel that fits inside the folded DSP. Let’s take a look….

This Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is so sweet and I wanted to emphasize this particular pattern for as much of the card as possible. This is what I did…

  • Mint Macaron card base cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″; also cut 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ for the inside panel
  • Ornate Garden SDSP cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″; another with same dimension but score this at 4″
  • Adhere the 4 “x 5 1/4” SDSP to the card base using liquid glue
  • Cut a panel 1/2″ x 4″ from Gold foil. Using a die from the Ornate Borders Dies, run it through your embossing/ diecut machine. Adhere this diecut to the fold-over piece of SDSP. Cut about a 20″ length of Mint Macaron 1/4″ ribbon, run over it with your snail adhesive and adhere evenly around the back and front, covering slightly where the Gold Foil diecut was attached.Tie a bow. TIP: use your grid paper to make certain the ribbon is attached evenly. 
  • Using tear ‘n tape, adhere to the sides and bottom of this panel and attach to the card base.
  • Cut three flowers from Gold Foil scrap using the Ornate Border Dies. Adhere Glitter Enamel Dots to the center of each flower. Put on dimensionals and attach accordingly.

Now for the inside…

  • Whisper White cut to 2 is 7/8″ x 4 1/4″. Stamp your sentiment (I used the Peaceful Moments stamp set) with Stazon Jet Black ink. I like how clear this ink stamps! I also added a sweet flower from the Special Someone stamp set. This was colored using Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight markers. TIP: When using Stazon Jet Black ink, DO NOT USE BLENDS TO COLOR! It simply smears the ink instead of adding color.
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies once more, cut the same border die from Blushing Bride cs (approx. 1/2″ x 4″). Adhere to the Whisper White panel using liquid glue.
  • Adhere this Whisper White panel to the 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Mint Macaron piece. Cute, cute!

The envelope…

  • Cut a piece of matching SDSP from the Ornate Garden SDSP pack 2 1/4″ x 6″. Adhere with liquid glue and trim.
  • Stamp the adorable flower used on the card panel insert on the envelope front (I did it five times!) Color using Flirty Flamingo marker for the petals and Daffodil Delight marker for the flower center.

Isn’t this card sweet?!

Triple Fold Card

Fun fold cards are just that – FUN to create! One of the best parts of card making is creating something for a special someone. Somehow for me, it’s easier to make a card when I have a reason for that card. This card is for that woman who is struggling with some health issues, is getting better but needs encouragement. Let’s take a look.

 

 

The card was created with a 12″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Pretty Peacock. Score it on the long side at 4 1/4″, 7 1/4″ and 10 1/4″. The elegant papers used to decorate this project were taken from the Come to Gather Designer Series papers in the Holiday catalogue shown on page 48. Here are the stats for the card cuts:

  • for the front and reverse side of that fold, 1 5/8″ x 5 3/8″, cut two, using one side for the front of the card and thew other side of the card stock for the reverse side.
  • for the next two sections, 2 3/4″ x 5 3/8″, cutting two. Again use alternating sides of the DSP for each section.
  • For the last section, 4″ x 5 3/8″. What I did here is slice off 1/2″ the long side, turn that small piece to the reverse side.

Adhere all pieces to the appropriate panels. That third panel could easily be a piece of plain card stock for writing a lovely note :o) ~ just sayin’. On the last panel I have used the 2nd (on mint macaron card stock) and 3rd (on whisper white card stock) largest dies in the Stitched Nested Labels set shown on page 92 in the annual catalogue to include a sentiment. That nice saying came from the Colorful Seasons stamp set shown on page 56 in the annual catalogue. I used another of it’s sayings on the second panel, stamped on a 1 1/8″ piece of mint macaron card stock. It was originally cut as a 4″ length, then I cropped it using the banner triple punch shown on page 186 in the annual catalogue.

The belly band is 1″ x 12″. You may find when you gently wrap it around the card, that it needs to be shortened a bit.  Do that before adhering together with snail. Then decorate the belly band. I used the beautiful whisper white 5/8″ Flax Ribbon found on page 174 in the annual catalogue and adhered that also with snail. Using the Gathered Together stamp set (pages 47 & 48 in the Holiday catalogue), I stamped that gorgeous large leaf and colored it with several stamping blends: Pretty Peacock,  Granny Apple Green and just a hint of Cherry Cobbler. (see the full range of colors available in the Annual Catalogue on page 179. I then cut it with the Gathered Leaves dies (pg. 47 HC) and adhered with snail.
