Sahara Sand: Trifold Birthday card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 44 – Sahara Sand

Today I have chosen a trifold card, that folds flat to fit into a standard DL envelope. This is a simple ‘fancy fold’ design, and perfect for any occasion.

Starting with an A4 sheet, I cut it down to 27cm x 21cm and scored the long edge at 9cm & 18cm. I marked with a pencil at 7.5cm on the short edge and cut from that mark up to the opposite corner.

I wanted to use the Like an Animal DSP which has Sahara Sand listed as one of the colours. I used this to decorate the front panel and the inside panel. The centre panel I embossed some Sahara Sand card with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture.

I took some Sweet Sorbet Glimmer Paper and punched 2 balloons. Adding some White Baker’s Twine for the string.

The bear (Happier Than Happy stamp set) was stamped twice using the Stamparatus to get a darker tone before die cutting it with the coordinating Happy Forest dies.

The Stylish Shapes circle die was used to cut some Vellum Basics Specialty Designer Series Paper which the bear is glued to, then some Dimensionals added behind the bear to pop it up a little on the card front.

On the inside centre panel, using the Stamparatus again, I stamped the ‘happy’ 3 times using the hinge stamping technique and then the ‘birthday’ in Sweet Sorbet ink across the centre.

On the inside back panel, another circle of Vellum was cut with the returning 2″ Circle Punch and the fox added on dimensionals with white baker’s twine wrapped around his tail to a smaller balloon. The fox was stamped the same way as the bear, but I also added a little Sweet Sorbet ink with a dauber directly to the stamp for a little extra shading.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next Wednesday for inspiration using Shaded Spruce.

Happy Forest Friends card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 15 – Crumb Cake

Tonight we focus on the colour, Crumb Cake, a lovely neutral tone that goes with every colour in the Stampin’ Up! range.

I adore this Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper, and although it doesn’t have Crumb Cake in it, I felt that it worked well with the bear and trees. My card base is Crumb Cake with a layer of So Saffron card, then another Crumb Cake layer embossed with the Stitched Greenery die.

The patterned paper is cut using the Deckled Rectangles die and layered onto So Saffron card. I trimmed a piece of the Natural 1/2″ Woven Ribbon and added it with glue dots across the card. The top panel is added with dimensionals. I die cut three acorns from Crumb Cake card and glued them to the trees. The sentiment (Happier Than Happy Bundle) is stamped onto So Saffron card and die cut with this cute little banner and added with dimensionals. A Linen Thread bow is added with a glue dot.

I made this card for my youngest daughter’s birthday this Friday – welcoming her TEENAGE-HOOD! Yikes, when did that happen?!!! This suite was the Number 1 item she added to our ‘must have’ list when we first browsed through the Annual catalogue together, so it was appropriate I used it for her 13th birthday card!

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Crushed Curry.
