A Fun Fold for Dad and a Blog Hop

Happy Friday!! I hope you've had a good week. This weekend is typically the unofficial start of summer here in Southern Ontario, as we celebrate Victoria Day with a long weekend and fireworks; however it would seem Covid-19 and Mother Nature have other plans. While some businesses are beginning to open up (which is GREAT news!) there will be no fireworks and the weather is most definitely UN-summer-like with cold temperatures and rain in the forecast. It sure would be nice if we could catch a some warmth and sunshine sometime before June! I can't remember the last time it was THIS cold on Victoria Day long weekend! Perfect weather to stay inside and craft, right? Well, my Stamping Symphony team has some inspiration to get your mojo's time for our monthly Blog Hop!

Among the good news announced today is that golf courses will be allowed to open this weekend. I know that is cause for celebration for many...not only for the golfers among us, but also for the spouses of golfers who can't wait to get them out of the house for a few hours ;) Here is a golf-themed fun-fold featuring the Country Club Designer Series Paper...

Now, I am not a golfer and no one in my family really is into it either, so I didn't purchase the other products from the Country Club Suite, but even with just the Designer Paper, it is possible to create a fun golf-themed project! One of the patterns in the DSP features beautiful line-art images of golf scenes. They are sized to cut perfectly in to 12 3"x 4" pieces from each sheet. I used one of the Stitched Rectangle dies to give mine a decorative border and it is absolutely perfect, even without adding a stitch of colour.

Now, can you spot the sneak peek of a new product from the upcoming catalogue? Check out those die-cut labels! They are from the new Tasteful Labels dies and the are AWSOME! Each new catalogue I seem to gravitate to one new die set and for this cataloge, these label dies are it! They are a great size for larger images and sentiments and have lovely detail on the borders. Here I die-cut one from Garden Green card stock and one from the same Designer Series Paper I used for the base of my fun fold.  I used the Well Written stamp set and coordinating Word Wishes dies to create my sentiment.

What I love about this fold is that it holds a little secret pocket for a gift card! Check this out...

I love when I can sneak a little treat in my cards that I send out. What dad wouldn't love a Timmie's gift card in his Father's Day card??

This fold is super-easy to make and uses up that gorgeous DSP you've been hoarding! It's time to cut it to make room for all of the NEW, beautiful papers in the upcoming catalogue. Believe me, you'll thank me for easing your guilt about buying the new papers ;)
