Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets for Fun Folds Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends, welcome to a fun new blog hop!  It’s the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  We’ve got a talented line-up of demonstrators from all over. This is going to be a once-a-month hop and all our cards will be fun folds!!  Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 1

I used the new upcoming Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Bundle and the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Drapery 2

I started by adhering a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the top of a Polished Pink mat. I scored, cut & folded the panel of Fitting Florets DSP (as in diagram below) and adhered it to the bottom of the Polished Pink mat. I wrapped a piece of Balmy Blue 3/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon around the card front on the seams of the DSP and adhered it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Here is my template for the drapery fold.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Photopolymer Stamp Set in Polished Pink Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Balmy Blue, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Framed Florets Dies. I adhered the floral image to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Balmy Blue, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the envelope flap.

  1. This is so pretty, Karen, and thank you for the template. I haven’t done this fold in quite awhile. Glad you were able to hop with us inspite of Covid. I hope you and your family get over this quickly. When you see my comment, you’ll need to take Rae off the hop list as her link isn’t working.
