Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents 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 in the office and at the dog bakery.

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! Simply Succulents Bundle for my fun fold card today along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring a Gray Granite card base at 3 1/4″ & 4 1/4″. I folded the card base in half at the 4 1/4″ score line and folded the front back at the 3 1/4″ score line. I adhered the 1″ binder edge together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, using the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Cling Stamp Set, I stamped the flowerpot and 2 succulents in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the same panel. I colored the images in using my Gray Granite, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using my Potted Succulents Dies, I cut the images and sentiment, I cut the aloe plant die from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock and the cascading die from a panel of Polished Pink cardstock. I adhered the dies to the flower pot using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Polished Pink cardstock to the edge of the card bae using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using a punch, I snipped both ends to hold the ribbon in place. I wrapped a piece of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the end and tied a bow. I added a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Bloom Where you’re Planted DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Gray Granite card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowerpot and succulent images from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Gray Granite, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the envelope flap.
