This week’s Global Design Project is a fun Theme Challenge that’s perfect for the stamp set Press On. I created a super easy fun fold card with the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper and added a 3″ x 3″ envelope to the back of the slide panel making it also a gift card holder. You can see the Facebook Live replay of this project here or on my YouTube channel below.
Start with a Artistry Blooms DSP panel (12″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″ and 10″ -leaving a 2″ flap). Cut a Calypso Coral cs panel and a Whisper White cs panel. Stamp the sentiment from the Press On stamp set in Early Espresso ink at the bottom center of the Whisper White cs panel. Then stamp the larger cup from the Press On stamp set in Early Espresso ink centered above the sentiment. Then stamp the hash marks in a half circle image in Early Espresso ink above the cup. Color the cup with the Stampin’ Blends. Add color with the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend between the Early Espresso ink hash marks image. Stamp the cup on a scrap of matching Artistry Blooms DSP with Early Espresso ink. Use paper snips to fussy cut the center of the cup on the DSP image and glue it to the cup on the Whisper White cs panel. Punch out two Calypso Coral cs hearts with the Dog Builder punch. Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to the hearts and then set them aside until they dry completely.
Stamp the swirly sentiment from the Press On stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White cs. Fussy cut out the sentiment and then use the Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend to add color to the edges. Glue the sentiment to the Whisper White cs panel above the center of the cup and overlapping the right side the hash marks image. Add Wink of Stella to the sentiment swirl for sparkle.
Stamp the 5 small cups images from the Press On stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cs in Early Espresso ink. Color the cup with the heart image with the Stampin’ Blends and then fussy cut it out. Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to the heart on the cup and then set it aside to dry completely.
Cut a 1/2″ strip of Calypso Coral cs and punch out the flat edged end with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Then use paper snips to cut the strip to 1″ long. Use Stampin’ Seal+ to attach the strip to the Calypso Coral cs panel’s top left side (use the card base to make sure that the Calypso Coral cs tab strip won’t stick out too far so it will still fit in an envelope). Then glue the Whisper White cs image panel to the Calypso Coral cs panel creating the inside slide panel. Then glue the dry mini cup to the top of the Whisper White cs panel side over the tab strip and a dry Calypso Coral cs heart to the center of the DSP panel on the larger cup.
Cut off the top flap of a 3″ x 3″ Whisper White envelope and then use Stampin’ Seal+ to attach it to the back of the Calypso Coral cs side of the inside slide panel. Add a strip of DSP across the base of the envelope and stamp a Calypso Coral heart from the Press On stamp set to pull the theme through.
Fold the card base and then wrap it with a piece of Terracotta Tile shimmery ribbon (from the Ornate Garden ribbon combo pack) and tie it with a bow across the folded flap to hold the card base together. Add the dry second Calypso Coral cs heart to the bottom right of the card base with a pair of Artistry Bloom Sequins. Then slip the inside panel into the card base.
