Sending Smiles

Happpy Wednesday....downhill to the weekend and the end of the school year is in sight! I am in the midst of exams and report cards right now...CRAZY busy! One week from tomorrow it will all be DONE! Wahooo!!
Today I have one of the fun-fold projects we did at my class this week. It is really an easy one and a great way to showcase BOTH sides of your favourite DSP...

Isn't that paper beautiful?? It is the new Floral Affection Specialty DSP. Besides beautiful printed patterns, this pack also features two sheets with metallic COPPER accents. It is soo yummy! For this project I started with an 8" square of DSP and then scored on the diagonal at 3" (I used my retired Simply Scored diagonal plate). Then I trimmed the little triangles created on each side by the score lines with my paper snips. I flipped the DSP over and then, using the regular Simply Scored, I scored at 1" down to the little snipped triangles on each side. That's it! The rest is simply folding. The finished card is 4-1/4" square, so it fits perfectly in a standard envelope.This is what it looks like without the belly band.

To make the belly band I used a 1-1/4" x 11" strip of Night of Navy card stock, wrapped it around the closed pinwheel and secured it with Fast Fuse. I added some of the new Burlap that stuff too...I'm already on my second roll! The squares are die-cut using the new Layering Squares Framelits from Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder and Night of Navy card stock. I stamped the white square using images and sentiments from the Love & Affection stamp set and Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Night of Navy inks.

On the inside I layered a 4" Whisper White square on a 4-1/8" Night of Navy square and stamped more of the same images I used on the belly band. I simply adore this gorgeous suite of about you?

Thanks for stopping by...have a fabulous day!
