Inspiring Iris Fun Fold

inspiring_iris_cardThis card was inspired by a card that my downline and close friend, Doreen Teasdale created, during one of our monthly stamping weekends at The Critters’ Den.

I thought this stamp was “nice” but it wasn’t really calling my name, until I saw Doreen’s card. Now, it’s one of my favourites. I’m hoping Stampin’ Up! will keep it in the new catalogue this summer.

Cut your card stock as follows:

Card Base – Garden Green 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score 4 1/4 and 2 1/8 on the 8 1/2″ side
Blackberry Bliss – 3 1/2 x 3 1/2
Very Vanilla – 5 1/4 x 5, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
Lily Impressions DSP – 1 7/8 x 5

Stamp your floral designs on the Very Vanilla 3 1/4″ square with Memento Ink. Using the “filler” stamps, finish your flowers with the Blackberry Bliss and Garden Green inks.

Layer on to your Blackberry Bliss 3 1/2″ square.

Create a Z fold with your card base. Adhere the DSP strip to the front small section of the card, then centre the Floral element over the DSP.

Stamp your sentiment on the inside of the card, making sure that it’s centred, so the Floral square covers it.

I hope you like this card – I love it!

Fun fold cards are just that – fun! This card is for all my crafty peeps, far and wide.

Card base – Crushed curry 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, plus scrap 1″ x 5 1/4, 2 x 2
whisper white – 9 1/2 x 5 1/4, score 2 1/2, 5 1/2, plus scrap

I cut the “ribbon” out of Crushed Curry card stock to match the card base, using the Arts and Craft Dies. Just a reminder, that if you purchase the Crafting Forever Stamps, and bundle with the Arts and Crafts Dies, you can save 10%.

Then I used one of the Layering Circle dies to create the window. Finally, I used the Button Button embossing folder, just on the front fold. If you embossed before you cut the circle, your embossing might flatten out a bit when you run the circle dies through the rollers of the die cutting machine.

I did all the stamping with Memento ink, and coloured the ribbon stamped image, with the Brights Stampin’ Write Markers.

The curvy little label (Crushed curry), is stamped then die cut.

After you stamp, you can fold and burnish your score lines, and attach the fun fold part to the Crushed curry back part of the card. This is a very quick card to make.
