During the Stampin' Up! convention, Shelli, Stampin' Up!'s co-founder, presented a card she made with the Friendship Preserves stamp set (#127912 C #127910 W) and Window Frames Framelits (#129021). What I loved most about the card was the interesting card fold and knew I wanted to re-create it.
Here is Shelli's version:
Here's my version of it:
I love the colors in the new Orchard Harvest designer paper (#126895), especially the striped paper. The rich colors are so soothing to me! I used the striped paper as my guide to the colors of the rest of the card. Never in a million years would I have put Island Indigo and More Mustard together, but paired with that striped paper, it looks great!
Interested in making this card? Here's how I did it:
The base of the card is a 4 x 5.5" piece of Crumb Cake. It is specifically cut at 4" because the striped framelit hangs over the card by .25" so you need to make sure it will fit in an A2 envelope. By reducing the card base, it will fit perfectly.
There are six sizes of Window Frames framelits (#129021) in one pack, ranging from small to large. The Indigo and Mustard frames were created by using the two largest framelits. The striped and sentiment were created by using 2nd and 3rd smallest.
On the Indigo and Mustard frame, score at 1". It's the 1" piece that folds behind the card and is secured in the back. Once the frames are secured, you will likely want to use either another piece of card stock or something else to cover up the back of the card.
It's a fun and easy card to put together and it's interesting too! Have questions? Please contact me.
