Welcome to my Blog today for Kylie’s International Blog Highlight! The card I chose for today is a very masculine card that I created for a Zoom Catalog Kick Off Party I had at the end of June. It was my first attempt at doing an online class and my first Zoom class. Fortunately it went well!
I created this card specifically to highlight the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper. The travel designs are so adventurous! Perfect for a masculine card. Also great for expressing gratitude to a special person.
One of the special features on this card is the buckle from the Antique Corners and Slides.
The diagonal cuts are made with the die from the World Map Dies.
The Very Vanilla background was embossed with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. I sprayed the Very Vanilla Cardstock with a little water before embossing to make the effect even more 3D. The sentiment is highlighted with the Brass Foil Sheet.
I am so grateful to all of you who are creating cards! I get so much inspiration from everyone! I can’t wait to see all the cards and projects in Kylie’s International Blog Highlight this month!

Happy Friday! Today I have a Fun Fold card for you using the World of Good Suite in the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The stamp set is Beautiful World. This card can be a wonderful masculine card.
A great part of this card is that it highlights the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). This paper has travel patterns- some accented with brass foil!
The Adventure Awaits Fun fold card opens like the top of a cardboard box. All of the flaps end up being tucked in behind the 2 1/4 inch Brass Foil Circle.
Measurements: Misty Moonlight Card Stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 11 inches for the card base, and 4 x 2 1/4 inches: Very Vanilla CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 x 2 inches; Brass Foil Sheet: 4 x 2 1/2 inches; and the World of Good Specialty DSP in 4 different designs: 2 5/8 x 1 7/8 inches each.
Use the Simply Scored scoring board to make the card base. Place the 8 1/2 x 11 inch Misty Moonlight CS with the 8 1/2 inch side on top. Use the Simply Scored Stylus to score at 2 1/8 and at 6 3/8 inches.
Turn the Misty Moonlight CS and score the 11 inch side at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4 inches.
Cut along the scorelines to cut off the four corner pieces.
Using the corner punch on the Detailed Trio Punch, round all of the corners.
Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold on all the scorelines. Check to see that the opposite flaps meet in the middle. Now fold the four flaps as you would fold the top of a cardboard box.
Using a non-permanent adhesive, place the World of Good Specialty DSP pieces on the card as you would like them to be. Open the card and flip over. This will allow you to see which corner of the DSP needs to be rounded with the corner punch.
Use the Detailed Trio Punch to round the appropriate corners on the DSP. Adhere the DSP pieces to the card base with a permanent adhesive. Fold the card back up to be sure all looks well.
In Misty Moonlight ink, stamp the sentiment “Life’s a beautiful journey” followed by the sentiment “Congratulations on this new beginning” onto the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Stamp the ink bottle and the little squiggle. On the 4 x 2 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS stamp the globe on one end allowing space around it so you can punch it out. Now stamp the sentiment “Adventure Awaits” on the other end.
The compass and feather are stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink.
Punch the globe out with the 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch. Fussy cut the “Adventure Awaits”. Note: I didn’t realize that the 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch is retired. I recommend fussy cutting the globe because the next size, the 1 1/2 inch Circle Punch, cuts off too much of the image.
Use the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch to cut out a circle from the Brass Foil. Tip: When punching the foil, I get a better results if I punch it out with the punch on the table, and the foil side facing towards the table.
Use the 2 inch Circle Punch to punch a circle from the 4 x 2 1/4 inch Misty Moonlight CS. Adhere the Misty Moonlight circle to the Brass Foil circle, then adhere the globe to the Misty Moonlight circle.
Lay the globe piece slightly above and to the left of center- to make it easier to open the flaps than if it is in the center. Adhere the sentiment “Adventure Awaits” to the card front. Tip: I use tweezers when I want to position something small that cannot easily be held by hand, so that it is straight.
Use a pencil to mark the edge of the globe piece. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals just to that flap.
Adhere the globe to the card front.
Open the card up and adhere the inside piece.
Viola! The Adventure Awaits Fun Fold Card is completed and ready to send to someone! The new adventure could be many different occasions including: a new job, starting college, traveling, marriage, or retirement. This also makes a great masculine card.
