Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Fancy Fold Birthday Card

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator


Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for September 2017. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently visiting Jillian Selwood from the UK and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. This month our theme is Holiday Catalogue Favourites. 

When I first saw the Painted Harvest Stamp Set I didn't really like it, the main reason was it is a two step stamp set and I'm not that good with two step stamping! Having watched lots of Tutorials on You Tube it did look very easy to use so I decided to buy it. 

I am so glad that I did, it is absolutely stunning and so easy to do. Here's the first card I've made - Warning I think there will be plenty more to come!

Yes it is a sunflower and yes they should be yellow but doesn't it look stunning in Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum?  I also used Old Olive for the leaves.

It opens up the wrong way, like this

There is plenty of room inside to write a lovely message even with the sentiment and the flower in the bottom right hand corner.

This is what it looks like standing up so even though the front does open up it still stands nicely.

    1. Thanks Debbie. This is a 7" x 5" card. Card base is 7" x 7.5" scored on the 7.5" side at 5". The smaller card is 8" x 6" scored on the 8" side at 4". I have since made another with a smalller front which I think works better, for that iI used 7" x 5.5" scored on the 7" side at 3.5". Hope this helps but feel free to come back to me if you need anymore help. My email is jillian@purpleselwood.co.uk xx

    2. Thank you. I tried doing with a 41/4 x 5/1/2 card, I could tell it was smaller than yours. I'm now going to try it with your measurements. Thanks again.

    1. Thanks Lynda, I love fancy fold cards they just add a bit of interest I feel. I've seen a few on YouTube and I changed the dimensions as I wanted a 7" x 5" card. xx
