My Irresistible Blooms Card for Creative Creases #84

It’s time for a new Creative Creases challenge. Firstly, thanks to all those who participated in the last challenge! If you haven’t played in the challenge yet, I hope I can inspire you to join the challenge that’s starting today! I made a great fun fold for you all today. We recently had one (Carrie, was it you?) I looked for it but couldn’t find it, but finally came across a Youtube video to make it. The card was made with the Irresistible Blooms bundle because I hadn’t used it in a while and love the florals. I have a link to the video below in the Secrets section. It’s so much fun to make this card, showing off pretty papers and gives a big WOW when it’s opened up. Try it!!

My Irresistible Blooms Card Today

Create this card using Irresistible Blooms by Stampin' Up! and Debbie Mageed at Secrets To Stamping

My Secrets!

Let’s start with the card base…

  • Firstly, I followed this wonderful tutorial by Created the Ottaway.
  • Main Card Base: 5-1/2 x 10-1/4 and scored at 4-1/4 and 8-1/2
  • Inside Card Base: 4-1/2 x 7 and scored at 1/2, 3-1/4, 3-3/4 and 4-1/4
  • Main Card DSP: 4 x 5-1/4 (3)
  • Inside Card DSP: 2-5/8 x 4-3/8 (2)
  • Flap DSP: 1-1/2 x 5-1/4

Now, the FUN part!

  • Assembling the main card is pretty straightforward, so I just glued those down.
  • The challenging spot was the inside card, so I watched her video a couple of times to make sure I didn’t mess it up. When assembling the card, the 1/2″ side gets glued to the left-hand side to make the inside card pop out. You can put the DSP panel on either side you want on the inside, then I added the second DSP panel to the “front” of the inside card. And don’t forget to glue the book fold that gets tucked under the flap!
  • After that, I began stamping the flowers from Irresistible Blooms in Moody Mauve ink and cropped them out with their coordinating dies. Then, I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink and cropped them out, as well.
  • Once that was done, I cut out the frame from the Designer Tags and stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink. Then, I tied pretty Diagonal Trim to the top of the frame. I added Blooming Pearls for the center of the flowers.

Then, on the inside…

  • Then, for the inside card, I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set in Moody Mauve ink. I was going to use the Hexagon punch but thought to use the brand new Labeled With Love Punch and it was perfect!
  • Lastly, I cut out the branches from the Designer Tags and colored them with the SU100 and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. You may not see the blended colors but I love how that turned out!
