Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? It’s been a beautiful warm week here. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work between both jobs all weekend.
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 new Stampin’ Up! Turtle Friends Bundle for my fun fold card along with the In The Wild Designer Series Paper.
I started by scoring and folding the Soft Succulent card base at 1/2″, 1 1/2″, 3″ & 4″. I adhered a panel of In The Wild DSP to the top section of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive to the 1/2″ fold. I folded the panel up on the 3″ fold line and folded the 1/2″ fold under and adhered it to the back of the card base.
I scored and folded the smaller panel of Soft Succulent cardstock at 1/2″ & 1 1/2″. I adhered a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive to the 1/2″ fold, I lined up the bottom of the panel with the card base, folded the card base flat and adhered the small panel to the larger panel. I adhered another panel of In The Wild DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I first cut the 2nd largest die from the Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the grass image from the Stampin’ Up! Turtle Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom of the die cut piece in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the streamers image from the Turtle Friends stamp set on the top of the die cut panel in Blackberry Bliss, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Ink. I stamped the large turtle image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel. I stamped the shell image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, inside the turtle shell. I stamped the sentiment from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink over the shell image. I punched the turtle out using the Turtle Punch. I colored the turtles body using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the hat image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink and colored it in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the hat using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the turtle using a Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold it from the back. I adhered the turtle to the die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I die cut panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom section. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels (which I forgot to add when I was live), to the card front.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the grass image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink along the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the 2 small turtle images from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored their bodies in using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the shell image in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the sentiments from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink towards the top of the panel. I stamped the streamer image in Blackberry Bliss, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Ink along the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the grass image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the large turtle image in Evening Evergreen Ink and the shell image in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the birthday hat on the turtle in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In The Wild DSP to the envelope flap.
