Shaded Spruce Blog Hop ~ Paradise Palms Fancy Fold card

CCS Logo 2021-22

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

Week 42 – Shaded Spruce

Tonight’s Pillar Pop Up fancy fold card is fast becoming my favourite! You may have seen my other version on 14 March using Waves of the Ocean.

This is a standard A5 card, but it has a layer at the front reminding me of a diorama, sitting up on two pillars which fold flat for the card to fit into our C6 envelopes.

My card base is Shaded Spruce 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame (2, 3, 5 & 6). Use 2 & 6 together for the Shaded Spruce frame and 3 & 5 for the DSP on the frame. Glue the DSP on the frame before adding the palm tree in front and the grass behind. I also stamped and cut out the trio of palms to glue to the inside.

There are two of these pillars at either end behind the front frame, which are created with the same DSP. These allow the frame to sit flat, leaning to the left or the right.

The New Horizons Designer Paper was the perfect choice with the Paradise Palms Bundle.
