Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “My Happiest Season.” We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal. So, are you keeping track of everyone’s favorite season? If so, mine would have to be fall here in Michigan. It’s just so pretty! I could also vote for spring since we just get so excited when the cold and snow are finally gone. However, my double easel card today used the Plentiful Plants bundle, which is so versatile all year round. Although, I think real plants always look so much better by the fall, right?
My secrets to making this project
- Firstly, the card dimensions for this A6-sized double easel fun fold are:
- Card Base #1: 12″ x 4 1/2″ and scored at 6.”
- Card Base #2: 11 7/16″ x 4 1/4″ and scored at 5 3/4″ and 8 5/8.”
- DSP: 5 7/16″ x 4 1/16″
- DSP: 2 11/16″ x 4 1/16″
- After that, I adhered the card base #2 onto the card base #1.
- Then, I adhered the DSP to the card.
Now, the FUN Part!
- Firstly, I started this card last week by fussy cutting many of the plants, containers and potted plants from the DSP. They are bound to come in handy at some point! Then, once I was ready to make a card, all I had to do was decide which ones would best suit my card.
- After I assembled the plants onto the bottom panel, I made the hanging plant by stamping the pot onto Cinnamon Cider cardstock, and cropped it out with the coordinating die.
- Then, I cropped out three of the plants with Garden Green cardstock, and layered them onto the back side of the pot.
- Then, I used the dies to make the hanger, cutting away the outer pieces to fit the pot used.
- Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink and cropped it out with the Hippo & Friends die. Also, I added a Cinnamon Cider Square Gem to the hanging plant.
- For the inside of my card, I simply stamped the sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink, then added a couple of the fussy cut plants to the bottom for a little color.
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 September 8th. Our theme will be “Focus on the Sentiment” when our Design Team creates a project showcasing a sentiment as the focal point of their project. Until then, have fun in your craft space.
