June 2021 Blog Hop featuring the Hand-Penned suite

Updated: Jun 16

This month our team chose to feature one of the new suites in the 2021-2022 annual catalog, Hand-Penned suite. It is made to look like a water-color image. As with most Stampin'Up! Designer Series Papers, there are 12 sheets of double sided paper, two sheets of six designs. One side has various hand-penned floral designs, and the reverse sides are more neutral in design but stay within the same color families.


The card I chose to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) is from Carol Brown and is a version of a fun fold/fun flap design. I will list all products used at the end of this post. This is my finished product.



The inside piece of Basic White cardstock is 5-1/4" x 3-3/4". The die cut image is from scrap cardstock measuring approximately 3" x 4".

First, ensure the score lines are burnished well. Set those pieces aside for now.


Using the larger piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment and any other decoration you choose. Remember that the right side, approximately 1", will show when the card is closed.


Next, adhere the hinge to the back side of the larger white piece of cardstock (the one with the sentiment), centering it along the edge as best as you can.

Adhere sentiment layer to the inside of the card, centering as best as you can.

Adhere the DSP to the front outside flap of the card. Fold the hinge over it. Center the 3" x 3" piece of cardstock and lightly mark the edge on the hinge. This will let you know where to apply the adhesive. Adhere the 3" x 3" cardstock to the hinge.

Next, stamp the focal image and color by the method of your choosing, I chose to use the

stamps from the set. When complete, die cut (or fussy-cut) the image. Attach to the center of the 3" x 3" cardstock using dimensionals. Embellish with gems or ribbon if you desire. and VOILA! Your card is complete.



I hope you liked this simple but elegant fun-fold card!
