A Well Dressed Retirement Fun Fold Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another great masculine card for you from the Well Dressed stamp set, and I have paired it with the Flowering Foils Designer Series paper.  There is one pattern I have not shared with you yet, and it pairs perfectly with today’s card which also has a fun fold … layout (you decide).

It wasn’t hard to choose a color pattern since I knew I was going to use the last pattern from the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Paper, I love the way it looks with Early Espresso so I was set.  I also wanted to create another card using the Well Dressed stamp set and a fun fold / card layout!

You begin with a half sheet of Early Espresso cardstock (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) … Score at 4-1/4″ and then cut at 5-3/4″.  With the piece that you cut cut off, cut off 1-1/2″ so you have a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece.  Now you will cut two strips of the Designer paper 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ … these will get adhered to the flap on your card base and the extra piece (panel)  you cut. For the inside cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White.

For the “tie” which is the piece that will actually tie your card together you will need a 3″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Whisper White and 3-1/4″ x 1-3/4″ piece of Early Espresso … the tie is stamped with Early Espresso ink.  When attaching the the tie … align the extra piece you cut with the bottom of your card base, now you can secure the tie piece to the top flap and bottom panel of your card … make sure you only use adhesive on the top and back of the cardstock.

When it came to stamping the inside of my card, I aligned my stamps on the grid paper and then placed my block over the top.  I made sure that it would fit between the two panels of my card.  I used the Well Said stamp set which can be found in our Annual Catalog. Here is a list of the supplies I used for today’s card …

This is really a simple card to create and now that you have all the dimensions and stampin’ tips on the assembly, you can create this fun layout with you next card. The Well Dressed stamp set really worked nicely with this pattern in the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Paper. Let me know if you have any questions on this card, supplies or placing an order.

I appreciate the visit today! Enjoy your day. Linda
