Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! How was yesterday – do you have lots of new goodies on the way?!? I sure do – a BUNCH of share paper that will be here on Thursday AND…my own new catalog order! I am a little afeared of how the house is going to look with all the piled up Stampin’ Up! boxes!
You might want to watch for a YouTube notification on Thursday…if my order arrives at any sort of decent time, I’ll try to go live and give y’all a look! Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel – and then select All Notifications (click the “bell”!) so that you’ll know when I go live! 🙂
Today’s card is another W fold – the first one I did a couple week back was in horizontal/landscape orientation – this one is in vertical/portrait mode. I used the new and amazing Nature’s Prints Bundle and Pretty Prints DSP to create this one. Take a look-see:
Now – this one comes with a bonus! This fold/card is the focus of the Wednesday Tutorial over at SplitCoast Stampers! 🙂 You can see the tutorial – written! – and the video on how to make this card right here! Enjoy! And – SCS is a GREAT source of ideas and inspiration and technique tutorials – so…be sure you check this one out and then spend some time looking around, okay??
I started with a regular sized card base in top-fold portrait orientation. These cards work best (for me!) if you create the card front first – and then get the innards inside.
I began by adhering a piece of Pretty Prints DSP on Petal Pink for the card front – then added a coordinating strip – also matted on Petal Pink – across the panel with more Liquid Glue.
I cut a cool label shape with a die from the Natural Prints Die set (bundled with Nature’s Prints for a sweet 10% savings!) from Petal Pink and adhered it with Liquid Glue.
I cut some Basic White and Soft Succulent foliage using the Natural Prints dies and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped a Nature’s Prints sentiment in Soft Succulent, cut it with a Stylish Shapes circle die and then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered the card front to the front of my card base with Liquid Glue.
For the inside, I adhered two large panels of Pretty Prints DSP on both inside panels of the card base, using Liquid Glue. Note: normally, you know I’d mat these panels – but…there’s a lot of layers of card stock here and…you just don’t need the extra weight or thickness! 🙂
To make the “w” mechanism, I scored and folded a strip of Soft Succulent at 2 3/4”, 5 1/2” and 8 1/4”.
I put Liquid Glue on the two end panels and then adhered it to the inside of the card base – aligning the edges of the strip with the edges of the card base.
See the “w”??
Then it was time to decorate! I cut four Stylish Shapes squares from Petal Pink to be used as mats for the three squares of Basic White and one square of Pretty Prints DSP.
One white square got another Nature’s Prints sentiment in Soft Succulent and then I adhered it to the middle panel.
I stamped some foliage from Nature’s Prints in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent and then cut them with their matching Natural Prints dies. I also stamped the small flower in Soft Succulent and cut it out – then colored it with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend. And I cut a few more Basic White leaves, too.
Each white square is stamped first with a leaf and then adhered to its mat and then to the “w” mechanism with Liquid Glue.
Using Liquid Glue, I added the stamped and die cut leaves – making sure to keep them “inside” the folds so they wouldn’t interfere with the movement of the mechanism. I trimmed stems as needed to make that work. It’s PAPER, people – make it do what you need it to do! 😉
The final square sports a Pretty Prints DSP square and a sentiment from Nature’s Prints. It’s cut with one of the Stylish Labels dies – and adhered with Liquid Glue.
I tied a couple of bows from white Baker’s Twine and adhered one to the card front and the second to the middle panel on the inside. I also colored several Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blend and adhered them here, there and everywhere – inside – front – wherever I thought it needed a little BOOM! and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got a Nature’s Prints fern in Evening Evergreen and the “frond” in Soft Succulent – inked once – stamped twice – on the front…
…and more Pretty Prints DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Oh my – I love this fun fold and I really love it with the amazingly gorgeous Pretty Prints DSP and the Nature’s Prints bundle, don’t you?? This Sun Prints Suite is destined to be one of the most popular in the new catalog, I am totally sure!
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
That moment when your dog throws you under the bus by highlighting your not-so-bueno housekeeping skills! 🤷♀️🤷♀️
Just finished watching your video on Splitcoaststampers. Beautiful card! I’ve never done a W in vertical format. Reminds me of a waterfall card. I could kick myself for not ordering this paper! I’ll be making the card today with something new I imagine. I thought for sure Finn was going to have a dimensional cover on his nose…but an onion skin…lol! See you tonight, my friend.
