Collar Fold Card – LICI-B-07

Still working on the Everyday Enchantment DSP that I have loved and now chopped.  I chopped it in 5-1/4” strips then cut the strips into 4” pieces.  Kept the leftover strips too.  I have stored them in a Full Wide Stamp case. Kylie Bertucci has given us permission to Love It Chop It!  Any DSP would work but its nice to use up retired stuff!

Stamps: Something Good to Eat (Sept 2016 PP), So Hoppy Together (SAB 2019), Dragonfly Dreams (inside).

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB 2012), Lucky Limeade, Peek a Boo Peach.

Ink: Light Old Olive Blends, Dark Old Olive Blends, Black, Peek a Boo Peach marker, Lemon Lime Twist (on envelope).

Tools: Everyday Enchantment brad, Stamparatus, bone folder, purchased envelope, sponge, dimensionals, Tombow adhesive, snail adhesive, regular and mini glue dots, black rhinestones, 9” black seam binding ribbon,

Punches/Dies: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering circle Dies, Trio Flower punch, Silent Setter.

Started with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ DSP from my Love It Chop It stash.  Using the trimmer, make a 1-3/4″ long cut mid-height (2-5/8″) from top edge.  

Use the scoring blade on the trimmer to score from the top and bottom corners to the endpoint of the cut.  That made it easy to fold back the corners.  Fold the two flaps to the right side.  Slightly curl both points. 

Cut Lucky Limeade cardstock 5-1/2” x 4-1/4”.  Stamp phrase from the Something Good to Eat stamp set with Black ink.  Do NOT adhere to card front until we have placed the brad in place.   Adhere panel to the DSP.  Place a Dimensional behind each flap, close to the fold.

Stamp sitting frog with Black ink on to a scrap of Very Vanilla. Die cut with the 2nd smallest Stitched Shape die.  Die cut Peek a Boo Peach cardstock using the scallop circle die and die cut a Lucky Limeade circle

Color the frog with the Blends and marker.

Now make a Brad Bow.  There is a good Tutorial here.

Lay the frog on the front panel to determine where to place the brad.  Mark brad placement with a pencil.  Punch a hole with the Silent Setter.

Adhere the frog to the card front. 

To add the Brad Bow, insert the prongs in the cardstock. Open brad on back side of the cardstock.  Adjust bow as you like and trim the ends.  Adhere panel to the card front.  Add three flowers from Peek a Boo Peach cardstock. 

Add a phrase to the inside with black ink and stamp an envelope.
