I have another fun fold card for you today! Fun folds are some of my favorite cards to make and this one is super easy and takes just a few minutes to make. I decided to use several of the items from the Fine Art Floral Suite of Products. It was the Fine Art Floral Designer Series paper that inspired me to make this card:
And to make this card;
The front of the card folds out revealing the message inside.
This set of papers, the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper looks like real paintings….complete with brushstrokes. And there is a nice variety of types of flowers and colors too. One side is a series of floral prints and the reverse side is a nice selection of coordinating small prints and brushstrokes.
The Art Gallery Stamp Set has several two step stamps that make flowers that have the same painted look as the Designer Series paper. First you stamp the using a lighter color ink and the second stamp is inked with the darker color. For the flower on the left, the colors are Pool Party and Pretty Peacock and the flower on the right is Poppy Parade and Merry Merlot.
Did you notice the center of the flowers? I added a little Gilded Leafing Embellishment. This is easy to di and is very similar to embossing. You will need the following items to add the gold accents:
There is a link to a video below where I show how to add this detail, but here are the basic instructions.
- Using Versa Mark ink, stamp the design. I used the smallest flower and stamped in middle bottom of the flower.
- Sprinkle on the Heat and Stick Powder and tap off any excess.
- Using a heat gun, aim it at the area you stamped. It will only take a few seconds for the white powder to turn clear (and sticky).
- Carefully place some of the Gilded Leaf Embellishment on the sticky areas pressing down until all the areas are covered.
- Use a dry brush or Stampin’ Sponge and gently brush off the excess.
Hint: The Gilded Leafing is very light and will easily “blow” around. So make sure you close the lid on the container before using the heat gun (and make sure you don’t have an overhead fan making a breeze! Or you’ll be trying to gather up all the pieces! A little bit goes a long way!
