Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thinking of You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Has anyone gone to get their tree yet? My husband went on Saturday and it’s sitting outside until we’re ready to set it up. Unfortunately, my house isn’t fully decorated yet. At the rate I’m going, I’m not sure it’s going to get finished either.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting yesterday. This card was designed by Tara Carpenter. There were 3 of us that presented and all 3 of us designed a fun fold card without knowing what the other was doing. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by folded a 5 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ Mossy Meadow card base at 4 1/4″. I scored the 4 3/8″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 1/4″.

I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card base and secured it with Tear & Tape on the back.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the small Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Seal. I folded the panel of the score line and adhered it to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Tear & Tape. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the tree top image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on top of the branches. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink across the bottom of the tree. I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the die cut to the small panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gold Metallic Pearls to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink to the left of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the right side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card designed by Tara. This was a very easy fun fold that went together really quick, and you can do a lot with it. Happy Stamping!!
