Good morning and Happy Friday! My fave day of the week! Not cuz we’re headed into the weekend (although after working for 30 some-odd years, I DO still gaze at the next 48 hours of being “off” with affection!). No. It’s cuz this is Miss Sonya day! By 2pm – my house will be Finn-fuzz-free and smelling all fresh!
By 5pm …the Finn-fuzz with have returned. But boy do I love that 3 hours each week! 😂😂😂
If you were able to join me yesterday afternoon for my YouTube tutorial, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me! If not, but you’d like to see the replay – here ’tis!
And – I am not a dumb woman. I’m an engineer. But – the first few minutes…sheesh. My brain stopped doing math. Like…at all. So…bear with me, y’all! 🙂
This card is an Arrow Fun Fold, which seems to be all over the internet right now – but I used measurements from Lisa Curcio to get started.
This is another fun sneak peek of the Eden’s Garden stamp set and bundled Eden Dies – with the gorgeous Ever Eden Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
And – I think it’s pretty darned perfect for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock that I scored and folded according to the template below, using the scoring blade on my Paper Trimmer.
Once I had folded and burnished the score lines, I used Liquid Glue to adhere the parts together. This next picture shows how the folds look from the inside.
I cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the Ever Eden Specialty DSP and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White into triangles as shown below.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the large DSP triangle to the large triangle on the front of the card. It isn’t a perfect fit – but I made sure the top and sides were good and square – knowing that the point would be covered by the sentiment.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the two small DSP triangles to the inside of the card.
I inked the large floral image from the Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent – then stamped it off once on scrap paper and stamped it in the middle of the large Basic White triangle. Over the top, I added a sentiment from the set in Evening Evergreen (this is one of my fave sentiments of all time!).
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the triangle in place on the inside of the card.
For the front, I stamped an Eden’s Garden sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a piece of Basic White – then I stamped a small leaf image over the top of it in stamped-off-once Soft Succulent. Then I cut it with a smooth-sided Layering Circles Die. I cut a slightly larger scalloped edge circle from Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and used Liquid Glue to mat the sentiment to it.
I used the long, banner shaped die in the Eden Die set to cut a Soft Succulent shape – which I adhered to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.
I cut the smaller frame die from a piece of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and used scissors to cut four little “sprigs. Then I used the small leaf die in the set to cut two Evening Evergreen leaves.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the sprigs and leaves onto the Soft Succulent die cut “banner”. Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the matted sentiment over the top.
I added some Soft Succulent gems from the Garden Gems pack (also coming on 2 Nov with the Suite) to the card front – and to the inside by the sentiment – and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Eden’s Garden leaf image in Soft Succulent on the front…
..and more of the Ever Eden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Isn’t this new Eden’s Garden stamp set, with the bundled Eden Dies, and Ever Eden Specialty DSP just gorgeous!? I love the organic, botanical images in the stamp set and designer paper, don’t you? And the sentiment pairs are really lovely! Are you SO excited for 2 Nov when YOU can get these goodies?? I hope so. Heck – I’m excited FOR you! 😉
I hope you like!
