A Quiet Meadow Fun Fold

The Quiet Meadow bundle is definitely one of my favorites.  I've had quite a few posts with this bundle.  I'll had links to these near the end of this post.  Here is my little fun fold card for today.

And here is the card open.

Quiet Meadow Fun Fold Card Open by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Night of Navy cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 2 1/8, 4 1/4.  Close the card in half and then fold the center score back on the front.

We are using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I'm so glad this paper carried over.  I had a lot left.  It's perfect for this card.  I used the paper that had the navy coloring in it.  It's a pretty textured paper.  Cut one to 1 7/8 x 5 1/4 and the other is cut to 4  x 5 1/4.  Stamp the flower from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in stamped-off Night of navy ink randomly over both pieces of designer paper.  

The saying on the inside is stamped on a scrap of Basic White in Night of Navy.  Trim around and add to the upper corner.  Add two stems cut in Night of Navy card stock.  If you wish add some of the Adhesive Sheets to the back of the card stock.  This will turn the stems into stickers.  It's really easy to add that way!  Cut with the Meadow dies.  Remember that the Quiet Meadow stamp set and the Meadow dies can be ordered together as a bundle for a savings of 10%!

Add the designer series paper to the card.

The navy and Basic White layers are cut using the Scalloped Contours dies.  OMG!  They are certainly a MUST HAVE set of dies!  Cut the navy layer with the 2nd largest rectangle and the white layer with the 3rd largest one.  Stamp the flower stem from the Quiet Meadow stamp set.  

The saying is from the stamp set.  Stamp, cut apart and glue to the card.

Glue the two scalloped layers together and add to the card.  You will only be adding adhesive to one side of this layer.  Part sticks over the edge.  I would use Tear & Tape.

The navy twine is from the Well Suited Twine Combo pack.  It's still available until the end of June.  Don't forget that Jan-June Mini Catalog!

The bling is from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Fold and score your cardbase.

Use the scrap of Basic White cardstock and the Stampin’ Inks to two-step stamp the bird and then his feet.

Use the dies to cut the center of the DSP, the right side edge of leaves, the tree branch, and the bird’s body and feet.

Use the Blends to color the tree branch.

Adhere the 3 ½” x 3 ½” piece of DSP to cover the hole in the center of the DSP. Adhere the DSP to the Early Espresso card base.

Adhere the tree branch to the top of the card. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the bird to the branch.

Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock. Adhere the sentiment to a scrap of the DSP and then glue to the card front. Add the green Holiday Rhinestones.

Place the golden Holiday Rhinestones on the tree branch berries. (The Poppy Parade berries were just too bright on the branch so I toned them down with the rhinestones.)

A Sweet Symmetry with the Pierced Blooms Dies

Hello!  I'm so glad that you stopped by today.  I have a card using the new Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.  I thought that this paper paired well with the Pierced Blooms dies.  My card for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We are using the colors Flirty Flamingo, Bumblebee, and Night of Navy.

CCMC664

The piece of designer paper from Sweet Symmetry has all three of these colors.  I just love this paper!

CCMC#664 Sweet Symmetry and Pierced Blooms by Jo Anne Hewins

Don't you think this paper works well with the dies?  I love it.

Start with a card base of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.  Add the Sweet Symmetry designer paper to the front.  It is cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  

Using the Night of Navy designer paper from the pack cut a rectangle using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I used the 2nd largest one.  Cut out the center with the 4th largest one. 

Cut a rectangle from Basic White using the 3rd largest die.  Stamp the saying from Friends Are Like Seashells in Night of Navy.  Add this layer to the center of the card.

Add the rectangle frame to the center of the card with Foam Adhesive Strips making sure to cover all of the white layer.

Cut flowers with the Pierced Blooms in Flirty Flamingo, one large and 2 smaller.  Cut centers, some small and some large from Bumblebee.  Cut tiny flowers from Bumblebee (6).  Leaves are cut in Night of Navy.  Arrange all the cut outs in a manner that is pleasing to you.  Add with glue, glue dot, or dimensionals as needed.

CCMC #664 Sweet Symmetry Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from Friends Are Like Seashells as well.  Add another flower down in the corner.

That's it!  I have a lot of new stuff, but I just still love the Pierced Blooms dies!
