Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Wedding for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  We’re upon the weekend and it’s supposed to be another beautiful one here. Love these cool mornings and warmer afternoons.

Today’s fun fold card is one that I made on Wednesday afternoon on my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to join me or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the link is below.  I needed another wedding card for my boss from my family, here’s what I came up with.   I’m calling it a folded gate fold with a belly band.

I started by scoring and folding my Thick Whisper White card base at 1 1/4″, 3 3/8″, 7 5/8″ & 9 3/4″.  I adhered 4 panels of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to 4 Gray Granite mats using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 of the matted panels to the outside panels of the card base and 2 to the inside panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I embossed 2 panels of Gray Granite cardstock using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and adhered them to the narrow front panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I adhered a panel of Petal Pink cardstock to a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped the belly band around the card and adhered it using Tear & Tape. I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon around the belly band securing it down with Glue Dots.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once,  on either side of the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the frame die from the Wild Rose Dies.  I cut 2 of the largest fern dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies from a panel of Vellum cardstock and adhered them to the belly band using Glue Dots.  I adhered the die cut sentiment to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the sentiment die.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam on the envelope front once full strength and once stamped off.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden 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.  The list of supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.
