Stampin’ UP Shaded Summer 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 weekend yet? I’ll be working all weekend between both jobs. I had requested Sunday off, but I guess they didn’t see it when they made up the schedule.

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! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the Summer Shadow Dies (available August 3rd as a Sale-a-bration item).

This is the template for making my card. I started by cutting a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock as in the diagram above.

I adhered 2 panels of the Petal Pink Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series paper to the card front panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 more panels of the Subtle DSP to the inside card front panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I made the belly band using a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock and wrapped it around the finished card. I adhered Tear & Tape to the ends of the belly band to adhere them together. I cut a panel of Petal Pink cardstock using the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped it with the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Happenings Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using the Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered it to the belly band using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to the belly band.

For the inside panel I stamped the 2 floral images from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink over the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to only the bottom portion of the easel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Using the Summer Shadow Dies (Sale-a-bration item available August 3rd). I adhered a panel of Calypso Coral and Shaded Spruce cardstocks to an Adhesive Sheet. I cut the detailed flowers from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I cut the solid flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock. I cut the detailed leaves from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock and the solid leaves from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the detailed flowers and leaves to the solid flowers and leaves using the Adhesive Sheet. I adhered the flowers to the bottom of the inner liner using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the leaves using a Glue Dot. I added a Champagne Rhinestone to the center of the larger flower. I didn’t stamp a sentiment on the inside. I need to write a special message for the recipient of the card.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Petal Pink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Petal Pink Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.
