Last April I attended the Stampin’ Up! onstage event in Vancouver BC and received during my swapping a great fun fold swap. When I reviewed my swaps that night I came across a cool fun fold swap and thought “I have got to make a card using this fold!”. This fun ditty I’m calling my Wish for It All Silver Candles.
Today’s post is the fourth or fifth design (I love it that much!) I have created using this fun fold. I created this for one of my July stamp classes. The color combination is outside my normal palette but the three shades of purple (Purple Posy, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape) just came together. (giggle – who would have thought)
CARD BASE: The basic base size is 4.25″ x 8.5″ (11″), with 2.5″ cut away from the length. The base is scored at 4.5″, 5.5″, 7″ and 8″. The 2.5″ x 4.25″ rectangle is scored at .5″ and 1.5″ along the 4.25″ edge. Yes, go and cut a piece of cardstock, score it and use your tear and tape or multi-purpose liquid glue to create the rectangle. I KNOW! Pretty cool, uh?
CANDLES: So what goes good with purple???……why silver of course. I remembered that I recently purchased the Doily Wishes dies from the Wish for it All Bundle and had my a-ha moment that it included this candle shape. BAM!……Silver Foil meets candle.
SENTIMENT: The sentiment is from the Wish for it All stamp set that is also part of the bundle. Woohoo! AND the die that I used to cut the sentiment is another of the many cool shapes in the Doily Wishes dies. I did trim the froufrou from the label shape. The candles were enough visually so I wanted to keep the sentiment clean and simple. [Yes, I used froufrou in a sentence. Lol!]
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Friday and have enjoyed today’s Wish for it All Silver Candles ditty. Let’s go and get our fingers inky and have some fun!
