Dear Friend - Art In Bloom - Inspire and Create with Stampin' Up!®

Hello and welcome back! So today's post is for the Inspire and Create with Stampin' Up!® team which is a brand new group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators sharing our creations every 2 weeks highlighting different techniques and themes.

Today's theme was a Fun Fold. I don't often do fun folds, so I decided to keep it quite simple for my card today. I created a gatefold card using the Art in Bloom Bundle and attached the flowers to go over the opening to create more continuity.


- Use Soft Succulent A4 card cut half and folded to create the gatefold for the card base. Use a piece of Basic White card which has been embossed with the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder, cut in half and then adhered to the card front.

- Stamp the flowers from the Art in Bloom Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black ink. Colour the flowers with Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin' Blends. Use the Bloom Dies and then the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder to both die cut and emboss the flowers. Die cut flowers and leaves using the Bloom Dies from Soft Succulent and Polished Pink card. Adhere to the card.

- Stamp the sentiment from the Art in Bloom stamp set onto Basic White using Soft Succulent ink. Attach this to a strip of Soft Succulent card and adhere to one side of the gatefold. Add some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centres of the flowers. Use a piece of Basic White on the inside of the card which has been stamped with the leaves from the Art in Bloom set.
