Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 382 – Inspiration Challenge

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is an fun Inspiration Challenge. Take a look at all the beautiful cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

Here is my take on it.

This card is a great little fun fold. Start with a regular 5-1/2″ X 8-1/2″ piece of cardstock, but score it at 2″, 3-1/8″, 5 3/8”, and 6 1/2” instead of in half. This will allow you to fold it in this cool pop up manner.

Next I adhered the two 1 3/4” x 5 1/4” petal pink pieces of Sunshine & Rainbow DSP ( a FREE SAB item) to either side of the card front and the 2” x 5 1/4” Navy piece to the front.

To create the front card candy I die cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and a piece of Layering Vellum using the largest label in the Tasteful Labels dies. I adhered them together in opposite directions (Navy horizontal, Vellum vertical). The I stamped the cute van from the FREE Driving By stamp set using Memento Black Ink, coloured it with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it. Then I stamped the palm trees from Timeless Tropical using Night of Navy Ink and die cut them. Next, I stamped the thank you sentiment from Timeless Tropical using Night of Navy Ink on a 3/4″ X 2″ strip of Basic White cardstock. I used mini glue dots and Dimensionals to adhere all the bits to the card candy and then glued it to the center layer of the card front only. The light pink adhesive-backed Hexagons were the finishing touch.
