“Let today be the start of something new” is the sentiment for the Friday Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields card today. It is a great inspirational sentiment to start the New Year!
This beautiful inspirational handmade fun fold card is really pretty simple to make. Just follow the step-by-step photographic tutorial below. A complete photographic and clickable supply list is found at the end of the blog.
Measurements for the Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields
Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (CS) card base: 8 1/2 x 11 inches. With the 8 1/2 inch edge on top, score at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 inches. Turn the card stock so the 11 inch side is on top and score at 2 3/4 and 8 1/8 inches. Cut off the corners as shown.
- Rich Razzleberry CS: 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches.
- Fresh Freesia CS: 1 x 10 inches scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/4 inches.
- Basic White CS: 2 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches (not shown)
- Flowering Tulips Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 x 2 1/2 inches. *Be sure the pattern is in portrait orientation
Stamp on the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. The tulips are a 3 step stamp. The first step is to stamp the outline in the Rich Razzleberry Ink. The second step is done in the Fresh Freesia Ink with the stamp to fill in the color. Note: Remember to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog to stamp on when using the clear Photopolymer Stamps.
For the third step I used Blackberry Bliss Ink. Repeat the process for the tulip bud.
Add stems using Soft Succulent Ink. You will need to use a piece of paper to mask the tulip under the tulip bud when stamping the stem for the bud.
The leaves are 2 step stamps. I used the Evening Evergreen Ink first, then the Soft Succulent Ink. And there you have the inside of the card!
Using the Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamp the sentiment on the bottom portion of the 2 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS. Use the Label Me Lovely Punch to punch it out. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the label to the 2 1/4 inch square of Rich Razzleberry CS.
Assembling the Card
To fold the Rich Razzleberry CS card base, start by folding the bottom flap up. Fold the left-hand flap to the right. Then fold the top flap down. Finally, fold the right-hand flap over to the left.
Now tuck the bottom corner of the right-hand flap under the right-hand corner of the bottom flap. This is the same as the way you would fold the top of a box. Tip: Be more gentle than I was as I made a slight crease on the bottom flap.
Adhere the Flowering Tulip DSP pieces as shown.
Open the card up and adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.
Fold the card and wrap the 1 x 10 inch Fresh Freesia CS band around the middle of the card. Adhere at the front. Be sure NOT to adhere the band to the card. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the band and adhere the sentiment label to the band. The band shown slide off easily.
One of my favorite embellishments in the new 2022 Stampin’ Up! January-June Mini Catalog is the Brushed Brass Butterflies! You can easily transfer the butterflies to your card with the Take Your Pick tool. They are so shiny!
Voila! The Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields inspirational card is finished! Give this one a try, it is a lot of fun. The first time around is always the most difficult. Tip: I often will make a new fun fold card with just the Basic White CS first until I get the hang of it.
