Splendid Day Suite Fun Fold

 Happy Wednesday! Yep...I'm finally on holidays and am going to make a concerted effort to get back to posting weekly. This school year has really kick my butt! Two plus years of Covid teaching through online, hybrid, quadmesters, modified semesters and all of the constant chaos that brought really wore me out. Add to that pivoting my Stampin' Up! business to be fully online and the steep learning curve that brought and it's no wonder I'm tired! I am so thankful for a few weeks to catch my breath and engage in a little self-care.

Today I have a fantastic fun fold made using the Splendid Day Suite from the new July-December Mini Catalogue. Check it out...

Now, I know it doesn't look very fun-foldy laying flat, but when it stands up, it has this cool pop-out panel that almost looks like it is floating...

I learned this fold from a video by Sue Campfield and it is so much fun! It's a great way to showcase the beautiful Splendid Day Designer Paper and still has lots of space for a focal image and sentiment. Here I've used die-cut botanical elements from the Splendid Stems dies. I love arranging them to create an eye-catching focal point. I also love that the stamped images are somewhat abstract, giving them a fun, modern vibe. 

Here are the measurements for the parts and pieces for this card:

Basic White card stock:

4-1/4” x 5-1/2”

5-1/2” x 8”, scored at: 1-1/2", 2-3/4", 5-1/4" and 6-1/2"

I demonstrated this card in my Facebook live this week. The replay is linked below. You'll want to start at about the 14:00 mark for this card.

Now before I go, I need to make a special announcement. Last week I successfully earned the 2023 Stampin' Up! incentive trip! Now I am obliged to tell you that this is something that is earned by only 1% of demonstrators worldwide...not to brag, but to make sure I'm not giving unrealistic claims about how easy it is to earn this trip! It's definitely A TON of hard work and takes the support of countless people, from my Stamping Symphony team, my customers and my family. As I mentioned at the top of this post, the past couple of years have been ROUGH, so earning this trip is that much sweeter. A HUGE thank you to all who have contributed to my success!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to pop in on Friday for our monthly Stamping Symphony Blog Hop...we're all about Sale-a-bration this month! Have a great week!
