Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days again.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper to the front of a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a strip of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the inside edge of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sand image from the Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the Basic White square. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the top of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink twice. I stamped the flower image on each of the cactus in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the tall thin cactus image using my Cactus Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered it to the panel using Glue Dots. From a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP I cut the other cactus and flower images out using the Cactus Dies. I adhered the smaller cactus to the Basic White panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the larger cactus image to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the larger cactus using Glue Dots. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and adhered it to the top of the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of the Linen Thread around the 1 1/4″ fold twice and tied a knot. I adhered the matted artwork on the 1 1 4/” panel over the knot using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the medium cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mint Macaron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus images from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the front of the envelope in Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow. I stamped the flowers on the cactus in Calypso Coral. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the envelope flap.
