You are the sweetest!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Tutti-Frutti 6” x 6” DSP Stack, making two cards with this Flip Fold card! This is a great way to make two cards at once or if you choose two different paper designs, you can make four cards! This super fun card is inspired by Rachal Tessman and you can her video here.

The card base is a full 8 ½” x 11” piece of Basic Black cardstock, scored at 4 ¼” on the 8 ½” side and scored at 5 ½” on the 11” side:

This cardstock will then need to be cut diagonally down the middle, so you will have to remove the score blade from your Stampin’ Trimmer to get this piece to fit:

After cutting, burnish the diagonal score lines with your Bone Folder:

I chose two coordinating pieces of DSP and cut them each the same; ¾” off one side, 2” off the next side, and then cut the remaining 4” x 5 ¼” diagonally down the middle:

Choose one piece of the diagonal cut DSP from each design:

If you find that the card fold will not work with the cut DSP, just flip the diagonal cardstock over and burnish:

To make the layered circles, use the 2” circle punch on Basic Black cardstock for two pieces and cut out two more circles using the 2” DSP strip to coordinate with the DSP on the card. On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Fruit Basket stamp set in Real Red ink, the solid bowl image in Sahara Sand ink, and the bowl outline image in Soft Suede ink and used the 1 ¾” Circle Punch for each. The watermelon images are stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Real Red and Garden Green inks and punched out with the coordinating punch from the Itty-Bitty Fruit Punch Pack:

The circles are layered and adhered together with Snail and I used Mini Glue Dots for the watermelons:

After I adhered these to the front of the card I felt it needed another set of circles, so I used the 1 ½” Circle Punch on Real Red cardstock and then chose a piece of coordinating DSP to punch out using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch:

I used the Bright Enamel Shapes in Real Red and Bermuda Bay to give the front some added cuteness:

The inside sentiment is from the Special Celebrations stamp set on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock and then I adhered one of the ¾” DSP strips along the bottom:

I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
