Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, our blog hop theme is Sale-A-Bration! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I fell in love with the Dainty Flowers Design Paper when I first saw it online, and it was even more spectacular when seeing it in person. I decided the best way to show it off was on a Double-Z Fun Fold card.
First, I cut a piece of 8 1/2″ X 11″ Mossy Meadow Cardstock in half, 4 1/4″ X 11″, and scored it at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. You can use the other half to make a second card.
The three panels were decorated with Dainty Flowers Designer Paper; 2 1/2″ X 4″ for the two smaller panels, and 5 1/4″ X 4″ for the larger panel.
After gluing the panels, I cut a band for the bottom from Mossy Meadow Cardstock, 11″ X 1 1/4,” scored at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″. The band was decorated with three strips of Dainty Flowers Designer Paper. The long strip is 5 1/4″ X 1″, and the two shorter strips are 2 1/2″ X 1″.
Next, I added details, using new, Dainty Delight Dies, and new, Love For You Dies. The large vine was cut from Old Olive Cardstock, and doubled for sturdiness, since half of it is without support. I used a Foam Adhesive Sheet and Rich Razzleberry Cardstock for the flower on the front. The daisies are Crushed Curry with centers of Soft Suede, and stems of Mossy Meadow. “Love you so much” was cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock.
The trickiest part of the Double-Z Fun Fold is fastening the band. It seems odd, but the long section of the band is glued to the short front section. I find it easiest to apply glue to the folded band, because this exposes only the part that should have glue. Then, fold the card while adhering the band in place. I suggest having a “dry” run before applying glue.
The sentiment, “I thank God every time I think of you” is from the Hope & Prayer Stamp Set. I stamped it in Old Olive Ink on Dainty Flowers Designer Paper, used Deckled Rectangles Dies to cut it to size, and attached it with Dimensionals.
The Double-Z Fun Fold card, with this amount of decoration, fits nicely inside our Medium Envelopes. But, this card will be staying here, because it’s my husband’s anniversary card, when we celebrate February 1. Thirty-seven years have passed too quickly!
Thanks for hopping by!
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on February 8th, when we will be creating projects for Random Acts of Kindness Week.
Until then, have fun in your craft space.
