Good morning and welcome to your week! I hope you had a great weekend! We got some things done – not least of which was getting catalogs in the mail. And doing a little rat-killing in my craft room. That’s what we call those pesky little “things to do and fix” – nothing huge, just stuff that needed doing, you know? 🙂
We ALSO had a super fun Amy’s Inkin Krew Team meeting on Sunday! We talked a little business and then three of us presented a project using the Beauty of Friendship bundle and most of us ALSO used the gorgeous Beauty of the Earth DSP. Interestingly – all THREE of us did a fun fold! 😉 I thought I’d share my project with you today! Take a look-see:
The layout for my card was inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week.
I started out by scoring a 4 1/4” x 11” piece of Old Olive cardstock at 5 1/2” and 6 3/4” on the long side. I folded the 5 1/2” score line as a “valley” – so….you know, ”regular”! – and at the 6 3/4” score in the opposite direction. Topographically speaking, that would be a “mountain” fold! 😂
Using Liquid Glue between the 5 1/2” and 6 3/4” score lines, I adhered the front of the card base to the back – just in that 1 1/4” area. This made the “book” or “side” fold.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere a narrow piece of Beauty of the Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the narrow front panel. I did the same with a larger square piece and adhered it to the larger side of the card front with Liquid Glue.
Next, I adhered a small Basic White square to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I cut a large Beautiful Trees die cut tree from some of the woodgrain paper in the Beauty of the Earth DSP. Since it’s a little too long to comfortably fit on the card front, I trimmed a little off the bottom with Paper Snips, rounding it a little.
I also cut a large solid tree top from Old Olive cardstock. And – from a green piece of the Beauty of the Earth paper, I cut the large detailed tree top.
I did a dry-fit of the tree on the card front to determine the location of each piece – and ensure it didn’t extend past any edges of the card base. Then I stamped the little splatters image from Beauty of Friendship in stamped-off-once Misty Moonlight in the top corners and under the right side of the tree.
I popped the detailed die cut tree top onto the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals cut into little pieces.
I stamped the sentiment from Beauty of Friendship in Mossy Meadow on a piece of Basic White and cut it out with the little tag die in the Ornate Frames die set.
I adhered the tag to the card front with Liquid Glue. Next, I used the birds die in the Beautiful Trees die set to cut out a Misty Moonlight bird that I adhered to the sentiment with Liquid Glue.
I tied a small white baker’s twine bow (from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack) and adhered it to the end of the tag with a scrunched up Glue Dot. Finally, I used Glue Dots to adhere three Bumblebee Trinkets and the card front was done!
For the inside, I stamped the tree trunk from Beauty of Friendship in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White square. I used the more solid small tree top image to stamp in Old Olive and then added the more detailed image in Mossy Meadow. Then I stamped the little splatters image from Beauty of Friendship in stamped-off-once Misty Moonlight.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into the card base and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the stamp the tree image on the front – stamped just like I’d done on the inside of the card…
Et Voila! It’s so easy to forget about all the great sets and suites in the Annual Catalog while we’re busy playing with a current mini catalog AND looking forward to a NEW catalog in January, so I’m grateful for the reminder! Beauty of Friendship – with its bundled Beautiful Trees dies – is wonderful, with pretty images and sentiments. Add the Beauty of the Earth DSP – which is just gorgeous – and you don’t even NEED to make it a fun fold for it to be awesome. Of course…a fun fold never hurts, am I right?!
