Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! We’ve got a theme challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
I decided to play with the In Bloom Bundle and the coordinating Paper Blooms DSP (this is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE with a $50 purchase – but ONLY thru 28 Feb when SAB ends!) to create a super easy fun-fold. Take a look-see:
And – the fun fold wasn’t an accident! 😉
I also played along with the TGIF challenge this week!
And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, too! I went across the middle!
This is a super easy fun fold – which is why I love it!
I started with a striped piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Petal Pink cardstock, then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy – so the card front and card base was all done! 🙂
I cut a smaller piece of Night of Navy to make the little front card.
I matted another design of Paper Blooms DSP to a Petal Pink mat and adhered it to the front of the small card. Then I adhered the card to the center of my cardbase with Liquid Glue.
Next, I used the dies in the bundled Pierced Blooms Die set to cut a couple of flowers from one of the Paper Blooms DSP papers.
I also used the dies – there are a LOT of them and they’re all super fun! – to cut some Petal Pink, Seaside Spray and Night of Navy flowers and leaves.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from In Bloom in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.
I started adhering flowers and leaves – starting at the right side of the card front – with Liquid Glue. Then I added the sentiment. More leaves and flowers followed on the other side. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals as needed to support petals and leaves. The little striped flower on top is also popped up with Dimensionals.
I added some Night of Navy gems from the Holiday Rhinestones and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a sentiment from Oval Occasions in Night of Navy to a Basic White panel. In the corner, I added flowers from In Bloom in Petal Pink, Night of Navy and Seaside Spray. Then I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones in the middle of a couple three flowers.
I matted the panel on Petal Pink and then adhered it inside the card with Liquid Glue and my fun-fold was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front….
…and a little more Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! See why I love this fun-fold? So quick and easy but just enough “different” to get your recipient’s attention! The In Bloom set – with its bundled Pierced Blooms Dies – is a perfect accompaniment to the pretty Paper Blooms DSP (how cool is it that the dies cut some of the flowers from the DSP!?).
Et Voila! If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below! And…be sure to snag some of this Paper Blooms DSP, okay? It’s gone when Sale-A-Bration ends on the 28th!
