Framed Florets Card for the SU Demo Fun Fold Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fun Folds Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!!

This is our first blog hop of the year so I hope you all had a great holiday season! I bet you are back in your craft space and looking for some inspiration with your new SU goodies. So, I have been having fun with a couple of different folds lately and wanted you to see one of them today; the book-binding fold really couldn’t be easier. Then, I paired it with the Framed Florets bundle and the beautiful Dainty Flowers designer paper from Sale-A-Bration, free with any $50 order.

Once you are finished here, you will find the lineup of the other fun fold stampers further down in my post. We hope you enjoy the inspiration we have for you.

Card #1: Framed Florets with Dainty Flowers DSP

Framed Florets Birthday Card by Secrets To Stamping

My Secrets!

  • Firstly, this card is a 5-1/2″ square card – Old Olive cardstock was cut at 5-1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″ and 6-3/4.” Once that is done, adhere the narrow panel down to create the book-binding fold.
  • Then, I cut the Starry Sky cardstock to fit the card base at 5-1/8″ x 1″ and 5-1/8″ x 3-3/4.”
  • After that, I cut the Dainty Flowers designer paper to fit into the cardstock panels by cutting them to 5″ x 7/8″ and 5″ x 3-5/8.” Then, the panels were glued together and placed onto the card base.

Now, on to the FUN Part!

  • Once the card base was done, I stamped the flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink and colored them with Rich Razzleberry and SU100 Stampin’ Blends markers. Then, I cropped them out with the coordinating die.
  • After that, I stamped the leaves with Old Olive ink and colored them with Granny Apple Green and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Then, they were cropped out with the coordinating die.
  • Once that was done, I stamped the sentiment from Framed Florets in Starry Sky ink and cropped it out with the oval die in Stitched Shapes. Then, I popped it up onto the card base with dimensionals and adhered the flowers and leaves.
  • Since I felt the focal point still needed a little more detail, I cropped out the branch in white cardstock and colored it with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Then, I cut it into two pieces and adhered it under the oval piece.
  • Finally, I added a double bow made from Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and glued it under the flowers, and placed the Iridescent Pearls in the center of the flowers.

Card #2: Adorable Owls Card with Happy Forest Friends DSP

  • Since many crafters prefer A2-sized cards, I decided to share this masculine one that I made, as well. The process is exactly the same so I won’t bother typing out everything except the paper measurements.
  • Card Base: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ and 5-1/4.”
  • Cardstock Panel: 3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and 3″ x 5-1/4″
  • DSP: 5/8″ x 5-1/8″ and 2-7/8″ x 5-1/8″

  1. Both cards are great, Debbie, but I am especially drawn to the Dainty Flowers. The way you did the skinny strip is perfect. I will be CASEing this one! Of course, scrolling to the bottom was the icing on the cake! I’m happy to be hopping with you.

  2. Debbie, this is an absolutely gorgeous card. One of my favorite layouts to use and you selected the perfect pieces of the designer paper to feature.

  3. I love how with just a change of paper and color both of these cards have completely different feels to them! They are lovely/adorable. 🙂

  4. A beautiful card.

  13. The owl card is my personal favorite and I’d say a book fold counts for the challenge. Thanks for sharing with us at Use Your Stuff

  14. Love both of your cards! I have been wanting to try one of these book binder cards and your card instructions are great. TFS

  15. Love the Dainty Flowers card with the Old Olive and Starry Sky color combo! Thanks for sharing your incredible talent!

  16. I cannot find a stamp for individual flowers on your card that you stamped with RR and cut out with the coordinating die. Are they in a different set?

  17. I sent you an email, Colleen! I’m not sure why but I have gotten a couple of people asking about those flowers. They are in the Framed Florets stamp set, up at the top when you look at the stamp set cover.

  18. Love the Dainty flowers card. Definitely going to give it a try
    Haven’t tried that fold card. Thanks for directions.
