Fun Fold with the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper

Do you have lots of designer series paper?  Use it!  I'm talking to myself!  Today I have a card for you that uses that paper!

Paper Blooms DSP Fun Fold by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the front of the card.  It uses the free Sale-a-Bration paper called Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper.  You can get it for free until February 28th with a $50 purchase.  It also has beautiful flowers made with the Pierced Blooms dies.  The dies are part of the In Bloom bundle.  It's my favorite from the Jan-June Mini Catalog.  Here is a picture of the rest of the card!

Let's get down to the details.  The designer paper is cut to 5 1/2 x 12.  That's almost a half sheet of the DSP.  Pick a pattern that coordinates well on the front and the back since both will show.  Score on the only side at 3 1/2 and 7 3/4.  Fold in a zig zag folding into the base.

To decorate the inside, I cut a strip of yet another piece of designer paper that is 1/2 x 5 1/2.  For the Basic White layer, cut to 3 1/4 x 5 1/2.  The saying is from the In Bloom stamp set.  Stamp in Night of Navy ink.  The flower is stamped with images from the same stamp set.  Use Rococo Rose and Night of Navy to coordinate with the designer paper.

For the front, I cut a rectangle from yet another piece of designer paper from the pack using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I used the second largest rectangle.  This might not be necessary.  I almost covered mine completely.  Add the rectangle to the center of the front panel.

Stamp the saying on Basic White 7/8 x 3 in navy.  Add in the center with dimensionals.

The flowers are cut from Rococo Rose, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, and Basic White.  Use the flowers on the designer paper as a guide.  Add some with dimensionals.  

Finish with a bow of Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo.

This is a pretty easy card.  You can use any of the designer paper and create a very different look.  Enjoy!

In Bloom Note Card Class Teaser 2 by Jo Anne Hewins

Now I would like to introduce a new class that you can get free with a $50 purchase using the Host Code U9YDQAQK.  Of course, you would not use the code should your order be over $150.  You would earn your own rewards.  This class is a card holder made from a 12 x 12 piece of patterned paper and 4 note cards with envelopes.  The class uses the Field & Flowers Designer Series Paper, a free Sale-a-Bration choice with a $50 purchase, and the In Bloom bundle.  In fact, ordering the In Bloom Bundle, at a 10% savings, for $48.50, already has you almost to $50.  Just add one more item!  Offer begins January 19th through February 28th.

You will get

A card holder already folded for you, but with a link to directions.  Papers for the folder may vary from within the Field & Flower DSP pack.

Four Note Cards & Envelopes

Paper cut and In Bloom parts cut for each card, ready to assemble.

PDF and link to a video.

IF you would like to purchase the kit, the cost will be $15 plus shipping if that applies.  Please email me at johewins@gmail.com.  I'm new to the shipping thing.  I think $2 should cover that.

Should the host code end up with at least $300 in sales by Feb.28th, I'll have a drawing of those submitting orders of $50 or more on there for the Free Host Reward of the Punch Party stamp set pictured on page 17.
