Hand Penned Petals Fun Fold Card by Secrets To Stamping

On to my next fun fold card – I found a cute photo of a fun fold card on Pinterest by Christiane Cejaert but, since there was no link to a blog, I had to make the card without a tutorial. Although I ended up using four stamp sets, the Sale-A-Bration Summer Shadows dies that coordinate with the Shaded Summer stamp set in the annual catalog are the star of this fun fold card.

My secrets to making this project

  • Cardstock measurements:
    • Card Base: 4-1/2″ x 6-1/4″ (2)
    • Layers – Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 6″ (4), DSP: 4-1/8″ x 5-7/8″ (4)
    • Panel: Cardstock: 12″ x 4″ and scored at 3,” 6,” 9″; DSP: 3-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ (4)

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Firstly, I put the panels all together. After that, I cut out the flower and leaf dies from Summer Shadows and glued them together.
  • After that, I stamped the two sentiments and cut them out with dies.
  • Then, I found the dragonfly and butterfly in my stash (so lucky!). After that, I adhered some black baker’s twine and popped up the sentiment with dimensionals. Finally, I added black matte dots.
  • Finally, I decided to make a belly band, so I stamped the pretty flower and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. Then, I cropped it out with the Encircled In Beauty die.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment and cropped it out with with the Tailor Made Tags, tied baker’s twine into a bow and added more matte black dots.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
