Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Fun Fold

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?

For today I have a Fun Fold card for you that is very easy.  I was asked to make a Birthday card for a Hair Dresser.  I had to think a little about that one and then I thought Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Stamp Set.  I had a lot of fun making this card.

Here’s my card, take a look.

I do have to admit, I don’t own this set.  I had to borrow it from my best friends ever.  The advantage of having a friend that stamps and lives close to you is that you can share your Stampin’ Up Stamp Sets along with other Stampin’ Up products.

I started by taking a  Petal Pink card base and scoring it at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ to make the Gate Fold card base.  I then took 2 pieces of Smoky Slate cardstock and 2 pieces of the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP to each of the Smoky Slate mats using Snail.  I ran them both through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered them to both sides of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I love all kinds of textures on a card.  It’s something you don’t always get with store-bought cards.

I then moved on to the really fun part of designing my card.  I knew I wanted an oval on the front of my card so using my Layering Ovals Framelits Dies I cut out a larger oval from the Petal Promenade DSP and a scalloped oval one size larger in Smoky Slate using my Big Shot.  I adhered the DSP oval to the scalloped oval and ran it through my Big Shot again with the Subtle DTIEF and set it aside.

I cut the apron, bow, neck piece and strings out from a piece of Petal Pink cardstock, the pockets out from a scrap of Petal Promenade DSP and the scissors out of Silver Foil Sheet using the Apron Builder Framelits and my Big Shot.  Before putting everything together, I ran the apron through my Big Shot using the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder so that it had a quilted look. I assembled the apron using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the neck piece and strings, a Glue Dot for the bow and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the pockets and scissors.  I added a couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the pockets and scissors.  I adhered the assembled apron to the embossed oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then the oval to the right card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the apron, neck piece and strings from the Apron Of Love stamp set in Petal Pink Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the scissors from the same stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in each of the corners.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the top part of the apron.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink under the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the apron, pocket, scissors and strings on the envelope front in Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Inks.  I adhered a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
