I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, 4 1/4″ x 11″ that I scored with my Simply Scored Tool at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″. Then I folded and burnished each score line – starting with a “valley” fold at 2 1/4″, mountain at 3 5/8″ and 7 3/8″, and finishing up with another valley at 8 3/4″. And that was the entire fun-fold…done!
To decorate, I matted two pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the two side panels.
For the middle panel, I used a different design in the DSP pack, also matted on Terracotta Tile. With SNAIL and Glue Dots, I adhered two lengths of Old Olive ribbon (from the new Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack – coming on 1 April).
I stamped the pretty flower corner image from the new Ornate Style set in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White. The image is colored with my Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Combos and the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.
I added the large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile – then two more in Early Espresso. Then I cut the image with the second-to-largest rectangle die in the awesome Stitched So Sweetly Die set.
On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped flowers from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) in Terracotaa Tile (full strength and stamped-off-once) and Crushed Curry (the same). Then I cut them all out with the Small Bloom Punch (FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration).
The little leaves die cuts are actually the NEGATIVE space that was left over from cutting one of the Ornate Borders die cuts from a piece of Mint Macaron.
I laid all the pieces out, then began to adhere the leaves and flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals on the left side of the rectangle. Finally, I added some Gold Metallic Pearls to the flower centers, popped the whole thing on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!
On the back, I adhered two more Terracotta Tile-matted pieces of Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the side panels. On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped and colored the Ornate Style flower image. I added another sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile.
I adhered the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the middle of the fun-fold card, and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Ornate Style flower on the front…
…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Isn’t this a fun fun-fold?? Super easy and awesome to look at – and it all fits perfectly in a regular Medium (A2) envelope! I love the Ornate Garden Suite with it’s Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks bundles anchoring the gorgeous paper.
Be looking for those – and all the goodies – in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April. I hope you like!
