Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  How are you all doing with Social Distancing?  I’m actually going to work today.  The store has re-opened, but they are limiting the number of people they are letting in.  They also put up a plastic sheeting barrier for the cashiers at the register. We’re not open the full hours, but at least customers can run in to get what they absolutely have to.

For today I have this really cute fun fold.  Once again, I see myself making this one often.  Here’s today’s card.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #233.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to a  Pool Party card base using Snail.   I cut the center of the card base using the 2nd largest Stitched So Sweetly Die and set it aside.

I wrapped a piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the perfume bottle from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I brushed the bottle with Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the perfume bottle.  I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Stitched So Sweetly Die.  I adhered the artwork to the Pool Party cardstock die that I cut from the card base.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

The inner liner is part of the fun fold.  Score the 8″ X 5 1/4″ card base at 2″ and 4″ and fold like a Z-Fold card.  Have the Z-Fold open out to the right, which is the opposite of a normal Z-Fold card.  I stamped the perfume bottle from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the larger section of the Whisper White card base in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom left.  I stamped the flower images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set by the perfume bottle and on the corners of the folds.  I colored the images in using my Petal Pink, Pool Party and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in the center of the larger section of the Whisper White card base. I adhered the Whisper White card base to a So Saffron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Close the card and add Snail to the small fold through the opening on the card front.  Adhere the matted artwork through the card front opening, which should fit perfectly since it was originally cut from there.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the perfume bottle and a couple of the flowers from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Petal Pink, Pool Party and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty 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!!
