Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is Focus on the Sentiment. Our Design Team is showcasing a sentiment as the focal point of their project. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals share with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. Then, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My Stepping Stones Triple Point Card
Don’t you just love a great sentiment for your cards? I sure do and quotes are my favorites. The best way to make a great sentiment even better is by making it the focal point on your card, then adding details to make it shine! So, I decided to make a Triple Point fun fold card, which I had made once before (you can see that one HERE), using Stepping Stones for the sentiment with True Beauty for the pretty flowers.
My secrets to making this Quiet Meadow project
- Firstly, I made this card base with the same dimensions as my first one, however I added another layer to each of the panels. This 6″ square card started with the card base at 6″ x 12″ then scored at 6″ on the 12″ side. After that, I marked the center of the front panel and cut from the left corner down to the center mark. Then, I did the same with the right side. Make sure you save those pieces you cut off since those are the criss cross points.
- Then, I cut the bronze foil from the Brushed Metallic cardstock to 5-3/4″ since it was a close match to Early Espresso in the patterned paper but added some bling. After that, I cut the Abigail Rose DSP to 5-5/8″ to layer on top. Both of those papers were then cut like the card base and all layers glued together.
Now, the FUN Part!
- After the card base was complete, I wanted to brighten it up so I stamped the sentiment from Stepping Stones and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle die. Then, I cut gold foil with the Scalloped Contours die and popped the sentiment on top with dimensionals.
- After that, I stamped the flowers and leaves from True Beauty stamp set then cut them out with their coordinating dies. Once they were done, I layered them around the sentiment panel.
- Finally, I cut out the Splendid Stems dies with gold foil cardstock for more bling.
- Then, to complete the inside, I changed it up from the first one I made, making it super easy! Firstly, I cut the bronze foil cardstock to 5-3/4″, then I cut the patterned Abigail Rose paper to 5-5/8″. These were then adhered together and added to the card. Then, I cut Very Vanilla cardstock to the same dimensions as the front of the card and glued on top.
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team because the Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 12th when our theme will be a color challenge!
Until then, have fun in your craft space!
