Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the long 4th of July weekend yet? I will be at Ace all day Saturday working and both places are closed for the 4th on Sunday so I have off, YAY!!!

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! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring the card base at 4 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I then scored from the bottom of the 4 1/4″ score line to the top right corner and folded the panel in. I adhered the left binder side together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I moved the die down 3 scallops and cut again to make a square. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP to the scallop square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel just to the bottom triangle of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I edged the sentiment using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. On a thin scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink and adhered it to the top of the larger sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the detailed floral die from from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Penned Flowers Dies. I adhered the die cut to the inside panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, placing it on the corner to hold the easel open.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope flap.
