Pals Blog Hop: More Than One Score

2019 April Blog Hop 300

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.”  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place.  You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Pals Blog Hop Dandelion Wishes Daisy Punch by Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

My card for the hop includes one of my favorite color combinations right now – Night of Navy and Melon Mambo.  I’m even incorporating it into my wardrobe.  I recently purchased (finally, is more like it) the Stampin’ Up! Handwritten Background stamp.  I adore all the messages it contains in multiple languages and how you can create a unique background with any ink or card stock color.


Start with an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Night of Navy card stock.  Score the long distance at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4. Using a bone folder, set the score by folding “in” at 4 1/4.  Use a bone folder again to set the score at 2 1/8 by folding “out” (opposite the direction of the previous score).

Layer and adhere a 3 x 4 1/4 piece of Melon Mambo card stock to 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere to the interior of the card with Snail Adhesive.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment (Dandelion Wishes) in Night of Navy Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Crop with a die-cutting machine and the 2 1/8 Layering Squares “straight” die.  Crop a piece of Night of Navy card stock with the 2 1/4 Layering Squares “scalloped” die.  Adhere together and to the Melon Mambo card stock with Snail Adhesive. 

Crop a piece of Night of Navy card stock with the Daisy Punch.  Adhere a 1/2 circle of Melon Mambo card stock (cropped with the 1/2″ Circle Punch) to the center of the daisy with a Mini Glue Dot.

Use a die-cutting machine to crop a piece of Whisper White card stock with a 2 5/8 Layering Square “straight” die and a piece of Night of Navy card stock with a 2 3/4 Layering Square “scalloped” die.  Adhere the squares together with Stampin’ Dimensionals, leaving room to the ‘thread’ the ribbon between.  Adhere the daisy to the center with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

“Thread” approx. 20″ of Navy Gingham Ribbon (retiring) through two squares and around the card. Adhere the daisy scallop square to the “Handwritten” panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tie the ribbon in a bow on the side as shown.  It such a pretty way to keep the card closed.

You CAN send these by US Mail (USPS).  I use a non-machinable stamp.  For added protection, you can cover the top of the card with a piece of coordinating embossed card stock.  I tucked the ribbon around the back for a clean look.

  1. Great card Mary. I, too, love to mail cards in a clear envelope. My hope is that it makes many people along the way smile.

  2. Such a lovely card, Mary, in the crisp style that you are so known for! I must remember to try this fold!!

  3. Great card and great blog hop. I think the Pals Blog Hops are the best. The works is always exceptional and the links are easily read and followed. No breaks going from one to the next. I especially appreciate the designation “you are here” in the lineup. Thank you for sharing all of this wonderful talent.

  4. Definitely a “Mary” card. I need to send a card in a clear envelope; I’ve not done that before.

  5. This card is the best. I love everything about it especially the background. The fold is right up my alley.

  6. Oh, I have not used my new Daisy Punch yet. I only bought it because it coordinates with Daisy Lane, but I see you can use it any time you want a big bloom to shine on a card.

  7. Such a great card, Mary! I love this color combination, too – that pop of Mambo is perfect. Great reminder to pull out this background stamp, too!

  8. It is a Home Run hit out of the park! The fold is dynamic…every single thing you used created a masterpiece, Now I have to order that ribbon if any is left. TFS,

  9. Wonderful fun fold card, Mary! Love the color combo – will need to get back to playing with Melon Mambo again. I bought the Handwritten stamp but haven’t used it yet. Your card shows me (and all your followers!) how to make it look fantastic. Love it!

  10. Oh Mary, I love it!!! Your card just pops with those colors! I’m a huge fan of navy and going to be sad to see that ribbon go! Such a beautiful card design!!!

  11. Oh MsMary, I love it , those colors just makes it pop up to the sky, lovely lovely ,that handwriting stamp is soooo BEAUITFUL
    Thanks for sharing ?????

  12. The Handwritten background stamp looks fabulous with your design! I must give your cello mailing suggestion a try!

  13. Love the bold colors, Melon Mambo is one of my most favorite Pinks from Stampin’ Up! The ribbon tieing the card is a lovely detail.
    This is indeed, a fun fold card, awesome!!

  14. I love this card! I have seen so many different versions but could never get the dimensions right, but with your tutorial, I am bound to be successful!
