Stampin' Up! Pretty Perennials Multifold Birthday Card


Happy Friday!  Today's card is the first multifold card I have created in ages!  It was inspired by Try Stampin' On Tuesday's Challenge 502.  Isn't this a great sketch!?  I almost just used the sketch and skipped the technique part of the challenge.  Then, I realized how perfect this sketch is for a multifold card!


Card Base ~ 4-1/4" x 11", score at 2-1/4" and 7-3/4"
DSP ~ 4-1/4" x 3-14"
Coastal Cabana ~ 2-1/2" x 4-1/4"
Scrap of Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo
Linen Thread ~ 17"

Use Real Read to stamp the sentiment on the top right corner of the Coastal Cabana Cardstock.
Stamp a large flower in Flirty Flamingo on the Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and a smaller flower in Crushed Curry on the matching cardstock. 
Use a blending blush to blend Coastal Cabana over the red and white striped sheet of Playful Pets Designer Series Paper. 
Use the coordinating dies to cut out the flowers. 

Attach the Coastal Cabana Cardstock and the DSP to the Card Base using Stampin' Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  
Place a Glue Dot on the piece of Coastal Cabana CS so that it will be hidden behind the flowers.  Use that glue dot to attach the Linen Thread to the card (wrap it around twice). 
Attach the flowers to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Try to place them so they will help hold the Linen Thread in place. 
Finish off the front of the card with rhinestones on the flowers. 

For the inside of the card, stamp another flower from the Pretty Perennials stamp set in Coastal Cabana.  This is the flower and location I chose, but of course you can change it up. 

The Playful Pets Designer Paper used on this card will be retiring soon (in less than two weeks!)

  1. Love your card, Judith! Great job meeting BOTH the sketch and the "more than one fold" part of our Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge! Great choice of colors, and your interpretation of our sketch is just perfect for your special fold! Thank you for sharing your creative talents with us!!! -Donna

    1. Thank you Donna! I think this was the first time I did both parts of a challenge! :) Fun!

  2. Love this, Judith, these bold colors sing together! That DSP looks amazing all dressed up! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!
