Stampin’ Up! Garden Birdhouses for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day Saturday depending on the amount of snow we get. Once we sell out of shovels and salt sometimes, they will close the store so that everyone can get home safely. Fortunately, I walk to work, so I don’t have to worry too much about travel.

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! Garden Birdhouses Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the New Horizons 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding the Pale Papaya card base as listed below. I adhered the card base together using Tear & Tape between the 5 1/8″ & 5 1/2″ score lines. I cut the panel of New Horizons DSP keeping them in order, at 1 5/8″, then 1 3/8″, then 1 5/8″ that left a 1 3/8″ panel. I placed the panels together on my Grid Paper and stamped the birdhouse pole from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the right 1 5/8″ panel. I colored the pole in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker. I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink along one of the hills on the DSP. Starting with the left panel, I adhered the panels to the Pale Papaya card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a scrap of In Good Taste DSP to a scrap of Basic Whtie cardstock and stamped the birdhouse image from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set on the DSP in Early Espresso Ink. I fussy cut the birdhouse using my Paper Snips. I adhered the birdhouse to the right panel of DSP on the card base in the center on the stamped pole image using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right side of the birdhouse. I adhered the 2 – 1/4″ strips of Soft Succulent cardstock to the thin edges of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes to the card front along the path.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies and adhered it to the center card front panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Brushed Brass Butterfly to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the Basic White panel. I stamped the flower images from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the birdhouse image and pole from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass and flower images from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink below the birdhouse. I adhered a panel of the New Horizon DSP to the envelope flap.
