Wonderful Romance - Stampers By The Dozen Hop

Fun Folds

Welcome to the first Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop of 2019!  Todays theme is Fun Folds and I know there will be some way cool designs shared so be sure to hop all the way through until you return back here, or to where you started this hop.

When I first saw the Wonderful Romance Bundle, I fell in love!  While I do tend to fall for florals, this one is so unique compared to the standard petal style, plus the Wonderful Floral Framelits have some cool extras shapes like the ‘Leaf Border’ and oval used on this card. How can anyone resist?

The card is a gate fold card (Directions below).  I started with the standard half sheet of card stock 5.5” x 8.5” but rather than fold it in half, I scored it at 2 1/8” and 6 5/16” folded in toward the center.

I used the NEW Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on both sides of the card front.  I ran it through the Big Shot twice and positioned the card stock in the folder so each side was a mirror image of the other. 

I used the Leaf Border die to cut two images from matching card stock.  In order to ensure the lattice design was more visible I added a piece of Whisper White card stock behind each of the die-cut pieces (5.5” x .75”).  These pieces were added to card front, so the leaf side was to the outer folds (one will be upside down). 

The flower image was stamped in Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends before cutting out with the matching die. Small Basic Jewels pieces in Clear Rhinestone were colored with the So Saffron Dark Blends Marker and added to the center of the three flowers as well as a little ‘dot’ near the sentiment on the oval die (I love this shape!).

With such a fancy outside I knew I couldn’t leave the inside blank.  I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 4” x 5.25” and stamped a few of the leaf image onto it in matching ink before adhering it to the card.

I know you are curious to see other fun folds so click the image below to see what Judi has to share with you.
