Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? 33 years ago today on a cool rainy fall day, I married my best friend. It stopped raining just long enough for the ceremony and to get some outside pictures. You can actually see in some of our pictures the floods behind us (it had down poured the day and night before). Like many couples we’ve had our ups and downs, but mostly ups. Here’s to another 33 years together. He surprised me with a bike for our anniversary. He bought one for himself a while back and thought it would be fun bike riding together. I don’t know if he really knows how old I am and that I haven’t been on a bike since I was a teenager. Hopefully I can remember how to stay upright and not face down on the pavement. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work all weekend between both jobs.
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! Blessings of Home Bundle along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (both items will be available in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog) for my card today.
I started by scoring and folding a Pale Papaya card base at 1 3/4″, 4 1/4″ & 6 3/4″. The 1 3/4″ score line is a valley fold, the 4 1/4′ score line is a mountain fold and the 6 3/4″ score line is a valley fold.
I adhered 5 panels of the Heart & Home DSP to 5 Basic Gray mats.
I adhered the 5 layered panels to the Pale Papaya card base.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the largest floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set in Pale Papaya Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink over the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside Basic Gray mat.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the smaller floral image and the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I colored the floral image in using my Just Jade, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I added some Clear Wink of Stella in the flower centers. I cut the floral image our using my Flowers of Home Dies and fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I cut a few of the leaf dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock using the Flowers of Home Dies. I cut a panel of Basic Gray cardstock using the Tasteful Labels Dies and then embossed the die cut using my Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I made a belly band for my card using a strip of Pale Papaya cardstock by wrapping it around the card and adhering it together. I wrapped a piece of Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the belly band and adhered it on the front. I adhered the leaf dies to the back of the floral die and adhered the floral die to the Basic Gray label die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered artwork to the belly band. I added a Bumblebee Trinket by the flower and some Genial Gems on the card front.
To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Blessing of Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the envelope flap.
