Pals Blog Hop: Wicked Folds Birthday Card

PALS HOP

Welcome to the Pals October 2017 Blog Hop featuring some very “Wicked Folds”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals treat you with their wickedly folded projects. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

My “wicked fold” birthday card began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock.  It’s scored twice on the short distance with my Stampin’ Trimmer, 2 3/4″ from each end and folded in.

I love hearing from you. If you have a question or thoughts to share about today’s post, please, COMMENT HERE.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Measuring up!  Each side on the front is layered with Lemon Lime Twist (2 1/2″ x 4″) and Whisper White (2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″).

  • A removable 2″ wide belly band turns the card into a gift with potential for a personal message inside! 
  • To create the belly band, I cut Whisper White card stock to 2” x 11” and the Rich Razzleberry to 1 1/2” x 11”.  I added one score at 2 3/4” and then set the card in place to determine the second score (other side).  The second score needs a little bit more room in order to stretch around the card (and depends on how thick I have made it.  The sentiment rectangle covers the ends of the belly band that are just short of meeting in the middle.

  • More vavoom for the bloom!  I stamped, colored, snipped and layered the large rose (with a Stampin’ Dimensional) over the small rose that is part of the “birthday wishes’ sentiment (Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Days Stamp Set).

  • COMING SOON!  I used 2 shades of Rich Razzleberry from the soon- to-be released Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends Markers to add rich, blended color to the rose. 

  • Three Black Rhinestones add a subtle tone on tone bling in the corners.
  • Layering Ovals Framelits Dies are an essential for creating frames (Lemon Lime Twist) and oval windows!
  • Just a note . . . Lemon Lime Twist is a “bear” to photograph.  It’s showing far more yellow than it actually is.  In “real life,” it’s modern and beautiful mixed with Rich Razzleberry.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on November 8, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I used Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Write Markers to color directly to the red rubber of the stamp – one of my favorite techniques with these markers.  I used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive markers on the “amazing you” card and Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black markers on the “happy for you” card.

  • The flower pots and bouquets were cropped with the Garden Grown Framelits Dies.  A touch of Linen Thread adds a flirty, rustic touch to the flower pot.

A Modern Spin on an Autumn Birthday Card

How to create a simple birthday card using seasonal layers dies - by Mary Fish

A change in the color combination for this autumn birthday card gives it a modern edge.  Crushed Curry is a classic for fall. Paired with Basic Gray and Smoky Slate it takes on a trendy style that still says fall!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The Smoky Slate solid leaf and detailed Crushed Curry leaf layer to perfection.  I lined them up a little “off” so that there would be more interesting dimension and shadowing.

  • Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine adds definition and softness.
  • “Happy Birthday” was heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The sentiment is from Special Celebrations, a versatile and multi-occasion stamp set.

  • The coordinating sentiment from Special Celebrations is stamped inside.  Watch my WOW! video from yesterday for tips on how to line up this sentiment without any stamp positioning tools!
  • Measuring up!  The Basic Gray square measures 2 3/4″ square. The Crushed Curry is 1 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. The remaining panels (wood plank) 3 3/4″ x 5″, (basic gray) 4 x 5 1/4″ and Smoky slate card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (standard A2).

  • Last but not least!  Luscious texture was created using Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Up! Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder.
