Welcome to Theresa’s Treasures today for Fun Fold Friday. Today’s card is made using the Butterfly Brilliance by Stampin’ Up!® as well as the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Butterfly Brilliance stamp set is part of the Butterfly Bouquet Suite that will be available for purchase on March 2, 2021. Or if you want yours now, consider joining my Theresa’s Gems Team. More information on the Butterfly Bouquet Suite and how to join at the end of the instructions.
The Fun Fold is the centerpiece for this lovely card. It is super simple!
Measurements: Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches; Bumblebee CS: 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/2 inches; Basic White CS: 3 3/4 x 5 inches; and Flowers for Every Season DSP: 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches.
First we will start by stamping the sentiment “Thinking of You” from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Memento ink onto the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White CS.
You will also be stamping the Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Memento ink onto a piece of Basic White CS and then coloring the smaller butterflies with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. The colors I used were: Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie.
Creating the Fun Fold
You will need your Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer for this step. First make a pencil mark at 2 1/8 inches on each side of the 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch Flowers for Every Season DSP.
The next step is to line up the pencil marks so that you can make a score line between them. Rotate until you have score lines on each corner.
The Flowers for Every Season card piece should look like this after you have made all the score lines. Erase the pencil marks.
Next you line up the score line at 3/4 inches and make another score line. Rotate until you have made a second score line all the way around. The end result is pictured on the right.
Now use your Bone Folder to make a crisp fold along all of the outer score lines.
In a similar fashion, fold the inner score lines outward and use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold. Next, adhere the Fun Fold card piece to the 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Bumblebee CS.
Putting It All Together
Begin to assemble the parts by adhering the Fun Fold card piece to the sentiment card piece. Then adhere that to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Bumblebee CS.
To complete the card front, use your Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 5 1/2 inch score line on the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White CS card base. Next adhere the completed card piece to the front of the Basic White CS card base.
In order to give the butterflies a little more dimension, I used my Bone Folder to gently curve the wings of each butterfly.
Add the butterflies to the card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional in the center behind the body of the butterfly.
I wanted my Fun Fold to lie a bit more flat so I added a Mini Glue Dot under the first fold. Tip: It is very easy to move the Mini Glue Dot with the Take Your Pick tool.
Viola! You have made a lovely Fun Fold to let someone know you are thinking of them. I really enjoy making cards. And I enjoy it even more when I mail the card out to someone. Additionally, I enjoy the positive feedback I get from the recipient. Mailing cards is a really great way to spread some joy!
Thank you for coming by today for Fun Fold Friday. I hope you will spend some time making your own card and spreading some joy yourself. We could all use a little more joy!
