Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Thank You Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I’m going to try to start making some kind of a Fun Fold card on Friday’s.  I’d love your input if you would like to see this or not.  The weekend is just a few hours away.  Has anyone made plans?  I’ll be working and I’m hoping to get in some craft time.

For my first Fun Fold Friday I have a gate fold card for you using the new Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges.  First is Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #393.  Here is their sketch.

Next I joined in with Color Throwdown Challenge #548. Here are their beautiful colors.

I started by folding my Blushing Bride card base at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ to make the gate fold card.  I then randomly stamped the 2 flower images from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the card front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink randomly on the card front.

I stamped the birds on the branch image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered 2 thin strips of Highland Heather cardstock on the top and bottom of the artwork using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Putting Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one side of the matted artwork, I adhered it to my card front.  I also added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets to the artwork.

On the bottom right of my card front, below the artwork, I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

On the inside I stamped the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the top and bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  Doing the masking technique, I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the flowers.  To do the masking technique, you stamp the flower image on a Post-It note and fussy cut it out.  After you stamp the flowers on the paper, you cover it with the fussy cut Post-It and stamp the leaf image over the top and it looks like it’s behind the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger bird image from Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in using my Crumb Cake and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope flap.  Doing the masking technique again, I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.

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