Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Tomorrow Fun Fold

Hello stamping friends. Today I combined two stamp sets to come up with my title.... Beauty of Friendship and Beauty of Tomorrow. I was inspired by Creative Moments with G for my fun fold. It's similar to the one I made here back in 2020.

I cut a base of Gray Granite cardstock 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Then I cut the two sides strips 1" x 4". I ran them through my embossing machine using the Bark 3D EF. I adhered them with liquid glue.

Next I cut a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock 3 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored and folded it at 4 1/4".  This made like a regular card. I glued the inside of the back flap to the back of the Gray Granite base, centering it between the side strips.

Then I cut a panel of Gray Granite cardstock 3" x 4" and adhered it to the front flap. I cut a piece of Beauty of the Earth DSP and adhered it to the mat. That measures 2 3/4" x 3 3/4".

Using the Ornate Frames Dies, I cut a mat and sentiment which I stamped with one of the stamps from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set. I used Merry Merlot ink and Basic White cardstock. I adhered them together and raised it up on the card center with mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

I embellished the card with three Silver Metallic Pearls.

I cut another piece of Basic White 3" x 4", stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set in Merry Merlot ink and adhered it to the card base.

Do you have a friend you believe in? I hope so! Do you have leaves that change in your neck of the woods? That's one of the things I miss about not living in the Adirondacks but I don't miss the cold, snow and ice! I know the mountains are calling my name again...Georgia? North Carolina? Tennesee? I wonder which state is just around the corner for me in the future?
