Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.
Today I’d like to share with you this fun fold card that I made for my niece’s birthday showing the new 2021-2023 In Colors in a little different way.
The most amazing part of this year’s 2021-2023 In Color Collection is how amazing the colors are with one another. Our Color Combination today is:
Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya
Today’s project also features Stampin’ Up’s brand *NEW* Scalloped Contours Dies as well as just a few other little goodies from my craft room.
Sweet Ice Cream Bundle
Sweet Ice Cream DSP
Scalloped Contours Dies
*Classic Ink Pads*
2021-2023 In Color Jewels
Pale Papaya Sheer Ribbon
Mini Glue Dots
Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
Take Your Pick Tool
2″ Circle Punch
This is the easiest way I can explain the Cardbase for a fun fold. Start with our A2 Cardbase (4 1/4″×11″ scored at 5 1/2″) and cut 3″ off one end.
I used the largest of the Scalloped Contours Dies to form the card front in Polished Pink Cardstock. I used the same die to die cut Basic White Cardstock for the inside Cardbase.
Using the 2nd largest die in the Scalloped Contours Dies I die cut the DSP. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the DSP and attached it to the front of the Scalloped Polished Pink Cardfront.
I added Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the 2 1/2″ piece of the Cardbase and adhered the Cardfront to it.
I stamped the ice cream in the Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Inks and punched them out using the ice cream punch. The cone was stamped in Cinnamon Cider and punched out using the same punch. I adhered the ice cream cone to the card front using Mini Glue Dots.
I punched the circle using the 2″ Circle Punch and stamped the “so cool” sentiment in Fresh Freesia Ink and adhered it down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I tied a bow with the Pale Papaya Ribbon and glued it to the bottom of the Circle with Mini Glue Dots. I added the In Color Jewels to the top of the ice cream and the sentiment circle.
I know that the photo makes it appear that my scallops are out of alignment but they’re not. When this card is closed and it’s laying flat you can not see the Basic White Scallops. The card stand that I use for all of the photographs of my Cards has the front slightly ajar so just a touch of the Basic White Scallops show.
To make sure that I got the alignment of the Polished Pink Scallops and the Basic White Scallops just right, I added Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the Basic White Scallops and lined it up with the Polished Pink Scallops and lowered it down into the Cardbase.
The inside of the card is stamped with the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and will join me again soon for another edition.
