It’s time for another round of inspiration from The Stamp Review Crew. If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, we are a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first and third Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways. This week we are featuring the Merry Café stamp set. I am #12 on the hop. You may have just left Stop #11, the talented Cindy Elam! After visiting me, you will continue to Stop #13, Natalie Lapakko. Enjoy today’s hop!
Merry Café – Joy Fold Card
When I found out we were using the Merry Café stamp set for this hop, I wanted to create a card in which I could tuck a little cash or a check. I needed something elegant, and so for the task at hand, I created a Joy Fold card using Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper and Champagne Foil. To create the fold, I used this Splitcoast tutorial. It’s my “go-to” pattern whenever I make Joy Fold cards.
I embossed the Champagne Foil using the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and trimmed the front edge. A Velcro dot holds the panel closed.
Rhinestones add a touch of sparkle to the inside front panel.
The top of the cup and edge on the right are not adhered. A little moolah or a folded check snuggles in nicely. Abe looks quite cozy, don’t you agree?
I hope you enjoyed today’s card made with the Merry Café set. Won’t you let me know in your comment today? Of course, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Now hop along to Stop #13, the incredible Natalie Lapakko, to see what she has in store for you! If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of all the hoppers at The Stamp Review Crew.
