Double Front Fold Thank You Card

I love fancy fold cards but I also love simplicity.  So this is a card I created for one of my OnStage swaps using the Just Because Host stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.  It’s a double front fold card that’s really quite simple to create.
You will notice that the stamps in this set actually come with the sentiments attached.  To give me more flexibility since I really wanted this to be a thank you card I just cut the rubber stamp making it 2 separate stamps.  Then I used the thank you stamp that comes in the set.  I can always but the stamp back together on a clear block…so don’t fear…give it a try!  And to make it really easy since I was making 20 of these cards I used the Stamparatus to making positioning the stamps easy.

Get Them Before They’re Gone! All the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog Host stamp sets will retire as of June 4!  You need to earn these stamp sets with Stampin’  Rewards.  There are two way to earn them.

  • Have a private class or party (either online or in person) and earn them with a qualifying order.  I still have dates open on my calendar through the end of May.
  • Or place a qualifying order of $150 or more.

Stampin' Up! Host Sets can be earned with a qualifying order!

See these stamps sets and details up close and personal HERE.

Now let me show you the inside of the card and why this is called a double front card.

When you open the card you find the sentiment on what appears to be another card but smaller.  Love this cute sentiment.  It’s from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Sets that’s fa collection of wonderful sentiments. 

And once you open the second front you have a place to write your own thoughts to the person you are thanking.  Of course if you aren’t one to write long lengthy thoughts you could always stamps some surprise 😉

The Just Because stamp set is a Stampin' Up! Host Set that can be earned with a qualify order! A sweet set with lots of great sentiments. Love this simple vase and flowers

Stampin’ Blends Meet Petal Passion Designer Series Paper – Free Tutorial

 

Lots of coloring fun when you pull out the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper! Love the black and white but look what happens when you add some color.  The other products I used are also from the Petal Passion Suite.  Save 10% when you purchase the Petal Palette stamp set and Petals & More Thinlits Dies as a bundle!

Petal Passion Designer Series Paper is one that I have stocked up on. So many possibilities! Leave it black and white or color in so many ways! What can you come up with?

Look at all the lovely patterns.  The possibilities are endless with or with out color!

Combine Stampin Blends with the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and color away! I love that this black and white paper can be used as is or can be colored with blends, markers, sponge and ink or a spritzer. Have fun no matter how you choose to color

A Few Details and tutorial:

  • The Stampin’ Blends are a great option for coloring.  No streaking and they blend easily so you look like a pro even if you aren’t.  I’m certainly not!  The colors I used are the Calypso Coral Combo, Daffodil Delight dark , Old Olive light and the Bermuda Bay Combo.
  • If you are tired of circles and ovals check out the Lots of Labels Thinelits Dies. They make a nice back ground for my bird and leaves
  • How do you choose what color to make the bird?  How about something that doesn’t blend in with the rest of the colors.  How about a pop of Bermuda Bay!
  • You will notice that the die cut leaves are not the same as the stamped leaves in this set.  I love that Stampin’ Up! has gone with coordinating some of the dies instead of matching them up.  It gives you lots of options.
