A Fancy-Fold Jar of Flowers Card

Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers Stamp Set

Today, I'm showing another swap card I received.  It uses the Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers Stamp Set and features a fun fold.  Today's card is from @Luly Gonzales.  This card uses one of the new In Colors, Cinnamon Spice, and one of the new 6" X 6" 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper Prints.   The Jar of Flowers Stamp Set is part of the Flowers For Every Season Suite.  The base card dimensions are listed below along with a view of the inside of the card.        

The basecard for this card is Cinnamon Cider, one of the new In Colors for 2020-2022.  Then a layer of one of the Bumble Bee prints from the 2020-2022 6 X 6" In Color Designer Series Papers.  There is another layer of Cinnamon Cider and one of the wood grain print from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.        

The jar and the flowers are separate images from the Jar of Flower Stamp Set, and are stamped on a Very Vanilla panel in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then the image is colored with Blends, and a Linen Thread bow is added as an accent. Below is the card opened against an 8-1/2 X 11" background so you can see how the fancy fold is created, as well as getting a look at the inside of this cute card.  The sentiment is from the Best Year Stamp Set and is stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink on a Very Vanilla panel.

To make the basecard, I've include a diagram below with the dimensions for the Cinnamon Cider basecard.  You'll want to give this card your own spin as you create a similar card for someone you love.  Take a look at the entire Flowers for Every Season Suite on pages 10-13 of the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  This is one suite you'll want to add to your Shopping List
