Let’s make an easy fun fold card!
Yesterday I introduced the Friendly Hello Stamp Set and Designer Series Paper which you can get for free from the Sale-A-Bration catalog with a purchase of $100 or more. Let’s make a card from this adorable stamp set and paper!
I started by cutting a card base from Granny Apple Green Cardstock. The card base was cut to 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″, then I cut 3″ off of the front of the card. Set the 3″ piece aside for now. I used two different pieces of DSP. I cut one piece of DSP to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ for the inside of the card. From the same DSP, cut another piece at 4-1/8″ x 2-3/8″. From a different DSP paper, cut one at 4-1/8″ x 2-7/8″.
On the 3″ piece of cardstock that I cut from the card base, I stamped the “Hello Friend” greeting on the DSP with the leaf pattern in Tuxedo Black Momento ink. I stamped the sentiment in the lower right portion of the DSP. Remember I mentioned yesterday that you can stamp on this DSP directly? Works great! on a scrap piece of the light background DSP I stamped the two-flower image and fussy cut this out. After adding a length of white faux linen ribbon to the top third of this panel with the ends wrapped to the back of the DSP, I then mounted this DSP onto the 3″ piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock. The fussy cut flowers were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The secondary pieces of DSP were adhered to the card and I used Matte Black Dots in the centers of the two flowers.
I think this card turned out really cute! I plan on mailing this to a dear friend of mine. Click here to view the full card instructions.
