A fancy fold always make someone feel special.  And the double Z fancy fold doesn't need to be difficult.  Using the beautiful floral print designer series papers from Unbounded Beauty, along with two-step stamped flowers created using the Flowers of Beauty Stamp Set you'll find the coordination is done for you when using the Stampin' Up! Unbounded Beauty Suite Collection.  Papers, florals, die cuts, embellishments and sentiments are all included in this two-stamp set bundle from the 2024-2025 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Share love of florals along with the new Stampin' Up! In Colors for 2024-2026, with this Suite.   Today's card uses a bold Peach Pie floral print from the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper, along with Bubble Bath and Berry Burst and Peach Pie flowers.  Florals were crated using the Flowers of Beauty Stamp Set and Dies.  A Birthday sentiment  is from the Unbounded Love Stamp Set, and a Peach Pie 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dot was added as an accent.

The basecard for today's card is Peach Pie Cardstock.  Then I created another layer of z-fold base also of Peach Pie Cardstock.  I created a sentiment layer, also using Peach Pie Cardstock as the base. See the cutting and scoring dimensions below. Each layer is covered with either a Peach Pie print from the Unbounded Beauty 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper or with a layer of Basic White Cardstock.

Cutting & Scoring dimensions:
  • Peach Pie - 4-1/4 x 11, Scored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2"
  • Peach Pie - 3-1/2 X 10-3/4, Scored at 3-1/2" and 6-1/2"
  • Peach Pie - 3-3/4" X 2-3/4"
  • Basic White - 4" X 5-1/4", 3-1/4" X 4", and 2-1/2" X 3-1/2"
  • Designer Series Paper:  2-1/2 X 4", 3-1/4" X 3-1/4", 
  • Leaves - 3 X 2-1/4" Berry Burst

Next, I created the front panel images using the florals and leaves images from the Flowers of Beauty Stamp Set and Dies.  The flower images were created using the two-step stamps in this set on Basic White Cardstock, and die cut after stamping. For the larger flower, the outer outline stamps were stamped in Berry Burst Ink.  The inside of the flower was stamped in Bubble Bath Ink.  For the two smaller flowers, the outer outline stamps of the flowers were stamped in Peach Pie, and the insides were stamped-off Peach Pie Ink.  Then, the coordinating dies were used to die die cut the leaves from Berry Burst Cardstock.

    To finish the card, I used a sentiment from Unbounded Love and stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst Ink.  As an accent on one of the small flowers, I added a Peach Pie 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dot.
