Good morning! It’s Sunday so..that heralds the half-way point of your weekend. And – not for nuthin’ – it’s Super Bowl Sunday! If you’re one of the lucky spectators – I heard there are going to be 25,000 human people. And…30,000 cardboard “people”. For which human people were given the chance to pay – yes PAY!! – $100 for the “honor” of having your face – or your kid’s face – or…your dog’s face – “attend” the Super Bowl.
Seriously?!? 😳😳😳 That just does not pass my sniff-test.
Caveat – if YOU were one who paid $100 to “be” there then I think that’s awesome – no offense meant – and I hope “you” enjoy the experience. 😉
So – I’ve got a fun-fold for you today (for FREE! 😉 ) – that’s just in time for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day and I showed you how to make it last night on my Facebook live video. If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me, I appreciate it! If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!
I love a good fun fold and I especially love it if it’s EASY – which this one totally is! I used the pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP and the gorgeous Love You Always stamp set with the bundled Floral Heart Dies to make it gorgeous. Take a look-see:
The colors on this one are from this week’s Global Design Project challenge.
Just Us Girls had a timely Word Week challenge, too!
I think it also fits well with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
I started by cutting two pieces of Rococo Rose cardstock to create the two “cards” that make-up the whole fun fold card. Card 1 is the “base” and then card 2 is the smaller cardbase that is adhered to the large back panel of card 1.
I matted a large piece of Love You Always Specialty DSP – in Rococo Rose – on Sahara Sand and adhered it to the back panel of card 1. I cut and matted a smaller piece for the left small panel of the first card.
For the smaller card – I matted another piece of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on Sahara Sand and adhered it to the front of the card.
From a piece of Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil, I cut the large heart die from the Floral Heart Dies. I adhered it to the front of the small card with Liquid Glue.
Then I used the small flower die in the Floral Heart Dies (it cuts three detailed flowers at a time!) to cut some flowers in Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose. These are adhered to the foil heart image with Liquid Glue.
I stamped the sentiment from Always in My Heart in Rococo Rose on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the same large die in the Always Die set. Then I popped the heart onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I tied two lengths of white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack into a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot. Then I added a few Opal Rounds and that was it for the card front.
I stamped a second sentiment from Always in My Heart in Rococo Rose onto a Basic White panel. Then I stamped two flowers from the set in Rococo Rose and filled them using the fill image – in stamped off once Blushing Bride.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into the smaller card base. Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere that card into the larger card #1 – making sure it was centered on the large back panel. And the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Always in My Heart flowers on the front…
…and more of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This super-easy fun fold is great for showcasing our gorgeous papers like the Love You Always Specialty DSP – and the perfectly sized front of the smaller card is just right for the big, bold Floral Heart Die cut! The bundled Always in My Heart stamp set covers the gamut from love to friendship – Valentine’s to Anniversary! 🙂
I hope you like!
