Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Graduation for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  I’m heading into work again.  I don’t usually work on Friday’s, but one of my full time cashiers hurt her back and they needed someone to cover.  We’re upon the weekend already, does anyone have plans?  I’m working tomorrow, Saturday, but I have Sunday off, YAY!!  We had a great day at the Zoo yesterday.  It was cloudy part of the day, so that seemed to keep it a little cooler walking around.  Unfortunately, not all the exhibits were open due to Covid, but we still had a great time.

For today’s card I have a gate card for you with a little extra.  My son’s girlfriend asked me to make here a graduation card for her cousin and the theme is pineapples.  I thought that was cute and I knew just the set to get it from. Here’s my card for today.

I joined in with Inspire. Create Challenge #073.  They have a Theme Challenge.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Challenge #235.  Here are their colors.

I started by scoring and folding a Granny Apple Green card base at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.

I adhered 2 panels of Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper to 2 Pacific Point mats using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the 2 matted panels to the 2 Granny Apple Green gate fronts using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the pineapple image from the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set, the bottom of Daffodil Delight and the tops in Granny Apple Green.  I fussy cut the pineapples out using my Paper Snips.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tops of the pineapple from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Granny Apple Green.  I adhered the Whisper White strip to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panel to the left card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the left side of the strip.  I adhered the 2 pineapples to the strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panel to the right card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on the right side of the strip.  I added a few Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pineapple image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the bottom of the panel, the bottom portion in Daffodil Delight and the top in Granny Apple Green.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pineapple image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the envelope front, the bottom in Daffodil Delight and the top in Granny Apple Green.  I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns 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!!

  2. Your cards are all so nice!!! I don’t remember…Is there a die that cuts out the panel on the envelope? Your envelopes always look so nice with the DSP on them!
