Made for Each Other



Welcome to our September NEW AT SU! Blog Hop! We love to share creative card ideas from Stampin' Up! with you. Today we are featuring Perfect Partners - new stamp and die sets from either the Annual Catalogue or the 2022 Jul/Dec Mini Catalogue! The more I use it, the more I love the beautiful Splendid Thoughts Bundle from the July/Dec Mini. It consist of the Splendid Thoughts Cling stamp set and the Splendid Stems dies. Then, if you throw in the gorgeous Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper with all the gorgeous foil, you can't go wrong!

And I also created a partnership with my project: a greeting card that contains 2 bookmarks, all using the same bundle, Splendid Thoughts along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper. The fancy fold I made it with uses a piece of DSP that is 8 1/2" x 11" and is folded into what's called a Double Pocket Fold card. Here's a quick video on the technique:

  • I used a piece of Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper cut to 8 1/2" x 11" to create the fold for the card. Because I wanted a different pattern for the bottom pocket than for the first pocket for contrast sake, I used the folding pattern where the bottom left quadrant is folded behind and over the bottom right quadrant and both are folded up. That meant that I needed to glue the whole card front onto a card base of cardstock. I used Crumb Cake.
  • I made two book marks using Crumb Cake cardstock and the Tailor Made Tags dies, but extended the tags by not cutting the top or the bottom of the dies in turn. (Just don't cover that part of the die with the top cutting plate when rolling it through the SCEM.)
  • I stamped and embossed in copper some elements with the Splendid Thoughts stamp set including the sentiment. I die cut several elements including the ones I stamped, plus others from Calypso Coral and Copper Brushed Metallic Cardstock, all using the Splendid Stems dies. I added some die cut rectangles of two different panels of Splendid Day DSP to enhance the fronts of the book marks, before adding some of the die cut foliage.
  • I topped the bookmarks with Linen Thread bows.

  • Here you can see the inside of the card along with another view of the bookmarks. The inside sentiment is also from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set, as is the petal stamp, stamped in Calypso Coral.

I hope you enjoyed this Double Pocket Fold card made with the Splendid Day Suite! I know you would enjoy creating with this great suite of products!
