Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Friday! I am so happy to be so close to the weekend! Today I am sharing my Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card! Yes, Fun Fold Friday is back!

Disclaimer: Today’s card is a little challenging. I am using few techniques. Let me know if you have any comments or questions about the instructions.

Today I have a very special card to share. My neighbor, who I have know for about 23 years, is turning 98! I am so excited for her! I am giving her this card to help her celebrate! Happy Birthday Jane!

The Card Base

Using the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer I created the card base in Soft Succulent Card Stock (CS) with the measurements as shown above. All of the lines are scored except the two vertical lines at 1 1/4 inches and 4 1/4 inches which run from 1 inch to 5 1/4 inches in length. You will need to cut the paper along those lines. Fold as shown above.

Measurements

The first layer is Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 1 x 3 inch pieces, a 3 x 2 3/4 inch piece and a
5 1/4 x 3/4 inch piece. The patterned paper is some of the Ever Eden Cotton Paper that I embossed with Gold Emboss Powder. You can see how to make your own patterned paper HERE. Each measurement is 1/8 inch smaller than the Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch pieces, a 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch piece and a 5 1/8 x 5/8 inch piece. If 1/8 inches drives you nuts, you could decrease the Evening Evergreen CS measurements by 1/4 inch instead. The border would be a bit thicker.

The Gold Foil circle is from the Tasteful Labels Dies. The square is made using Partial Die Cutting with a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. The small flower sprigs are in the Eden Dies. The center photo shows the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set die cut with the Layered Circle Dies. The leaves and berries image is from the Eden’s Garden stamp set. This is fussy cut.

Putting the Card Base Together

The first step is to adhere the Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the Evening Evergreen CS. I used a thin layer of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue spread with my finger on the back of the Embossed Cotton Paper. Then adhere these card pieces to the corresponding spot on the card base.

Adhere the 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the 3 x 2 3/4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Follow by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Gold Foil scalloped piece. Adhere this card piece to the center of the card base.

Adding The Decor

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the stamped leaves and berries card piece to the center of the Gold Foil scalloped square. Adhere the “Happy Birthday” sentiment to the Gold Foil circle. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom half to adhere it to the front of the card base. Note: I put the Stampin’ Dimensionals only in the center of the stamped leaves and berries piece so that I can insert the flower sprigs around the edges.

Insert several of the Evening Evergreen CS flower sprigs around the sentiment and around the leaves and berries image. Add the Gold Foil flower sprigs.

Add a 5 1/4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the card. I stamped a few leaves at the edge in Evening Evergreen ink.

Bling!

Now for some Bling! The Garden Gems are really interesting. They appear to be Evening Evergreen with gold accents, but when photographed turn blue and red in places! Very cool!

Voila! You have a very special birthday card that is a little challenging but worth the effort!

It was so nice to have you drop by today. I hope you try this card out. This particular fun fold lends itself to many great cards!

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery- November 2021- Stampin’ Up!® Eden’s Garden Thank You card

Hello and welcome to Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts! Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You.

In this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by folks from all over the world! I hope you enjoy my card and then take the time to see everyone else’s inspiring creations by visiting the gallery. You can get to the gallery by selecting the Vote For Me button at the end of this blog or by clicking HERE. I would be so grateful if you stop by and vote for my card!

Here is my Eden’s Garden Thank You card. The card is made more elegant by embossing with the Gold Emboss Powder onto the Ever Eden Cotton Paper and using the Gold Foil Sheets with the Eden Dies. The extra sparkle on the flower sprig is from the Garden Gems. The sentiment is part of the Nature’s Harvest stamp set which has a coordinating label die in the Harvest Dies.

The Eden’s Garden Collection is available for purchase now!

I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and I have an Online store. If you do not already have a demonstrator I would love for you to shop with me. Shop my Online store HERE

Measurements

Card Base: Soft Succulent Card Stock (CS) 10 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 3 and 7 1/4 inches.

Basic White CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches.

Ever Eden Cotton Paper: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

Evening Evergreen CS: 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Gold Foil Sheet: 5 1/2 x 2 inches

The sentiment label is created with a die cut Gold Foil Flower Sprig from the Eden Dies, an Evening Evergreen CS Stitched Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and a label from the Harvest Dies. I used the Nature’s Harvest stamp set for the “Thank You” which is stamped in Evening Evergreen ink.

How To Emboss the Ever Eden Cotton Paper

When I first felt the Ever Eden Cotton paper it reminded me of tissue paper used in wrapping gifts, but thicker. The paper cuts well with the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer. Be sure you have a fairly new blade. Cut the paper into four 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch pieces. In the photo on the left, I stamped one type of leaf in Versamark and used the Gold Emboss Powder followed by the Heat Tool. As you can see in the second photo, I stamped and embossed a second type of leaf.

In the left-hand photo, I stamped and embossed a third type of leaf. To finish it off, I stamped a fourth type of leaf. The resulting design turned out to make a great pattern!

How To Assemble the Card

Use the gorgeous Eden Dies to cut a border on the 5 1/2 x 2 inch Gold Foil Sheet, the 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch Evening Evergreen Card Stock (CS) and the edge of the 3 inch left hand panel on the card base.

Use the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut the Eden Cotton Paper that has been embossed into two 5 1/2 x 2 1/8 inch strips. Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue spread thinly and evenly to adhere the Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the panels on the card base as shown.

Adhere the Gold Foil and the Evening Evergreen die cuts together as shown. Adhere them to the lower panel as shown.

When you fold it up, it will look like this.

For the inside of this card I stamped another sentiment from Nature’s Harvest. To make it more interesting I stamped off once then stamped the main floral image from Eden’s Garden over the sentiment.

Add the Evening Evergreen CS Stitched Rectangle label to the card front applying adhesive only to the left side. Adhere the Basic White CS “Thank You” label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add the Gold Foil floral sprig and the Garden Gems.

The Completed Card

Voila! You have a gorgeous elegant Thank You Card!

Stampin’ Up!® Eden’s Garden #SimpleStamping Friendship Card

Hello! I hope all is going well with you today. We got close to a freeze the other night, but are now back up in the 70’s during the day here in Arizona. I love fall but I don’t like it too cold!

Today I have created a fun #SimpleStamping card for you to try. This card looks more complicated than it is.

I am using Stampin’ Up! product from the Eden’s Garden Collection which is being released today! I will have the item numbers and shopping information at the end of this blog.

Measurements

Basic White Card Stock (CS): card base at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; One 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch piece; and one 2 3/4 x 1 inch piece.

Evening Evergreen CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches, and two 1 x 7/8 inch squares.

Stamping

On the 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS, start out with one type of leaf. Stamp with the Evening Evergreen ink. Add a second type of leaf in the same color of ink. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge is on either side)

Switch to the Soft Succulent ink and stamp a third type of leaf. Finish stamping this card piece with a fourth type of leaf in the Soft Succulent ink.

Return to the Evening Evergreen ink and stamp the sentiment “Dear Friend How are you?” onto the 2 3/4 x 1 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “My heart is tied to yours…” on the inside panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS card base. Use the Soft Succulent ink to stamp the leaf sprigs on either side of the sentiment.

How To Assemble the Card

Use your Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut the stamped card piece into 1 1/2 inch strips. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is still on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge on either side). Adhere the strips to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Adhere this card piece to the front panel of the Basic White CS card base.

To create the sentiment, adhere the two 1 x 7/8 inch Evening Evergreen CS pieces to the ends of the sentiment strip. (Note: the 7/8 inch edge is on either side).

Voila! You have finished a great friendship card using only stamps, ink and paper! That is what #SimpleStamping is all about!

Dress It Up

If you want to “Dress It Up” a bit, add a few of the Garden Gems. I added three to make the card sparkle!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Sympathy Card-how to make a card from a sketch

Hello! Hope your day is going well. I am playing with the new Eden’s Garden Collection which will be available on November 3, 2021.

Often I have a hard time coming up with an idea for a card. Quite a while ago, I started to make sketches of the cards I received on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Basic White cardstock. When I am stumped, I look through the sketch cards. Today I am going to share the sketch and the card I created from it.

This is the sympathy card I created with the Eden’s Garden Collection using the sketch. I especially love the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the gold foil accents. Fabulous!

The Sketch

Here are the sketch and the finished card side by side.

Supplies

Card base: Evening Evergreen Card Stock (CS) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches

1st Layer: Gold Foil 5 1/4 x 4 inches

Ever Eden DSP: two at 5 x 1 3/4 inches

Top Layer: Basic White CS 3 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches and Evening Evergreen CS 3 5/8 x 2 7/8 inches.

Stamping

I stamped the floral image several times, first in Evening Evergreen ink and then in Soft Succulent ink. I liked the Soft Succulent flower with the Evening Evergreen sentiment on the bottom (bottom right).

Putting It All Together

The first step is to adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Gold Foil to the Evening Evergreen CS card base. (Tip: A little trick I learned to save my Gold Foil is to use dies to cut out shapes before covering it up. The sprigs are for another card.) Next adhere the two pieces of the Ever Eden DSP.

Finish the card front by adhering the stamped Basic White CS to the Evening Evergreen CS. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this to the card front. I added some of the Garden Gems around the flowers. Next, I stamped a 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS with the sentiment on the right and framed it with the little sprig for the inside of the card.

Voila! You have a beautiful sympathy card.
