Stampers Showcase Blog Hop - Fun/Fancy Fold May 2019

Hello and welcome to another amazing Stampers Showcase Blog Hop.

I just love hopping with these very talented Demonstrators!

I chose to use the fantastic Sailing Home Bundle to create a Double Z fold card. This stamp set is perfect for all your masculine projects. Having said that I love anything nautical too! This set was the first thing in the new Annual Catalogue that went on my wish list. I have to say the list is long. There are so many beautiful stamp sets in this new Annual Catalogue.

To create the Card base I cut a piece of Night of Navy to 28cm x 10cm. I scored on the long side at 7cm and then 14cm to create the Z fold. I cut another piece of Night of Navy card stock to 28cm x 3cm and also scored on the long side at 7cm and 14cm.

I stamped the yacht images and the Congrats sentiment on Whisper White card stock and cut these images out with the coordinating die. I stamped the "Set sail in the direction of your dreams" sentiment on Balmy Blue card stock and die cut it with the label die. I die cut the wheel, knot and the rope in Crumb Cake.

I cut two pieces of Balmy Blue card stock to 6.5cm x 6.5cm and 6.5cm x 13.5cm. On the pieces I used sponge daubers and the cloud mask to create little clouds. On the bigger piece I stamped the birds in Night of Navy. I glued these  2 layersdown to the card base.

For the middle section of the fold I cut the Come Sail Away DSP to 6.5cm x 9.5cm and glued it in place. On top I glued the larger sentiment and the knot below. 

I then glued the smaller Z fold to the bottom of the card base. You reverse the Z so that the scored 14cm piece is at the left hand side. You only glue the first 7cm of this to the card and the last 7cm that is scored to the right hand side of the card.

I then glued another piece of DSP to the smaller Z fold. This is cut 27.5cm x 2.5cm.

I then glued the yachts, wheel and rope in place. The Congrats sentiment is popped up using Dimensionals. And that is it! Below my post is a list of supplies needed to make this fun card.

I loved making this card. It is the first Fancy Fold that I have designed myself and I am pretty happy with how it turned out too! I hope you like it too!
