Stampin' Up! Sweet As a Peach Fun Fold Birthday Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a color challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!! Either way, you're in for a treat!!! I used the Sweet As a Peach Stamp Set to create my card for today.

We had to choose three from these colors...

I chose Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz.

My card base is Basic White cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2" and 4 1/4" to make the fun fold (Book Binding). Fold the score at 4 1/4" back on itself.

Next take a piece of You're a Peach Designer Series Paper cut the left piece at     1 1/8" x 4" and the right piece at 4" x 4". Adhere them to the card front. I love the flowering blooms of the peach tree, don't you? I hope Time Out Challenge #193 - Inspired by Words DT does! I'd love to have a garden full of peach trees...mmm, peach pie, peach cobbler, peahschnapps...oh, I digress...let's get back to my card!!

Wrap a 6" piece of Pale Papaya 3/8" Open Weave ribbon around the left portion and secure it on the back. Put liquid glue on the back of that part and close it shut. Bend back the right side and go over the score with your bone folder. Make a bow and adhere it on the front with a glue dot so it is centered on the ribbon.

Stamp the sentiment from Sweet As a Peach on a scrap piece of Basic White and cut it out with the die from the Ornate Frames Die Set. Adhere it to the Pear Pizzazz that is cut out with another die from the Ornate Frames. Adhere it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Ready for the inside? I was able to do this after watching a You Tube Video by Rachael Coon. It's easy peasy!

With the side you want to see in your card face up, fold it in half lengthwise. Unfold it, turn it 90 degrees and fold same way again. Then flip it over and fold diagonally. It should fold up nicely into a square by meeting the two center scores at the point.

Create your sentiments with the Sweet As a Peach stamps. I cut a Basic White square 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" and stamped the Happy Birthday in Pear Pizzazz ink. I stamped the leaves with the same color but 2nd generation. I inked up the peaches with Pale Papaya ink and used a sponge dauber to add Calypso Coral ink to portions of the peaches. For the other sentiment, I used Calypso Coral ink on a piece of Pale Papaya card stock that I cut out with a die from Tasteful Labels. I used another die from that set to cut out a Basic White mat and sponged the edges with Calypso Coral Ink.

Adhere the sentiments to the portions that are square with no crease line in the middle.. Fold it back up, do a trial run to be sure it's oriented correctly with the sentiments. You'll need to place the square diagonally so that the points touch the edges of the card and don't show from the outside. Then put liquid glue on the bottom part and adhere it to the right inside of the card base. Put liquid glue on the top part of the folded square and press the inside left portion of the card of top of the glue. 

Open up the card, et voila!  

I'm also entering my card in the Krafty Chicks Challenge #570 - ATG and Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper July 2021.
