Fun-fold card using Stampin' Up! Meandering Meadow Designer Series Paper from the Online Exclusives


  • Stampin' Up! fun-fold card using Meandering Meadow Designer Series Paper
  • All The Best Paper Pumpkin Kit - Order by 10 December 2023
  • The Last Chance Lists and Carry-over Lists from current mini are available

Today I needed a breath of Spring as I've been out walking the dogs in a windy, cold NE autumn climate.  So I'm using the Stampin' Up! Meandering Meadow Designer Series Paper as the main focus of today's card.   You won't find this in any of the catalogs; the entire Meandering Meadow Suite, Item 162745, is found by visiting the stampinup.com/online-exclusives section of the Stampin' Up! website. My color theme is Daffodil Delight, Pretty Peacock, Fresh Freesia, and Basic White.  I created a fancy fold card showcasing the the scene on one of the 6" X 6" Meandering Meadow Designer Series Papers.  By cutting this into 2" strips, I can show almost the entire scene on my card base when folded out.  I used a Daffodil Delight Basecard, and rescued a scrap of retired Daffodil Afternoon 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper that worked perfectly with my design.  Then, for the sentiment, I used a folded piece of Pretty Peacock and stamped a sentiment using So Sincere Stamp Set on the front using a circle die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies.  I added a couple of Fresh Freesia and a Daffodil Delight die cut using the Timeless Arrangements Dies, and added a Basic White card inside the folded Pretty Peacock card for a personal message.  I used Dimensionals along one side of the sentiment so that I could securely tuck the folded card layers under the sentiment card so that the card lays flat for mailing.  I added a couple of Blooming Pearls for bling to finish this breath of Spring.

    The basecard for the card above is Daffodil Delight Cardstock. It it cut at 5-1/2 X 8-/12", and scored along the longest side at 2-1/8" and at 4-1/4".   Then I trimmed one of the prints from the 6" X 6" Meandering Meadow Designer Series Papers into three 5-3/8 X 2" strips, keeping the scene in order as I glued it to the Daffodil Delight basecard.  I added a final strip on the right side of the basecard of retired Daffodil Afternoon 12" X 12" which has been in my scrap bin for quite a while, but worked beautifully with the Meandering Meadow print.

    For the sentiment flap, I cut a 3" X 5-1/2" Pretty Peacock piece of Cardstock, and on the long side, I scored it at 2-3/4".  I used a 2-5/8" X 2-7/8" piece of Basic White for my sentiment under the Pretty Peacock flap.  Next, I die cut Fresh Freesia and Daffodil Delight florals using the Timeless Arrangement Dies, and I cut a circle using the Stylish Shape Dies.

    Finally,  I stamped a sentiment from the So Sincere Stamp Set onto the circle, and added a few Blooming Pearls to the sentiment area.  The sentiment flap includes Dimensionals along the right side only and I added a double row to reinforce it in place.  That way, I can tuck the folded card layers under the flap on the right side of the sentiment so that the card lays flat for mailing.
