Enchanted Label Fancy Fold

Good morning and happy Saturday! It’s the weekend so that means I get to spend some quality time with my stamps today! I have a bunch of cards to make and I’m looking forward to a nice creative afternoon. For today’s card I was looking around on Stampin’ Connection, one of the perks of being a Demonstrator, and I came across this tutorial for using the Framelits Labels Dies (Occasions Mini) in a new way. A Demonstrator by the name of Cristy Butzen posted the card. I changed the mechanics of the card a little to make it open a little differently. The base of the card is an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Lucky Limeade Card Stock. I scored it at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″ with my Simply Scored. Using my Big Shot I put the card stock on the cutting plate and lined the Labels Collection Framelit on the center 2 1/8″ score line. Then I slid the other cutting plate into the Big Shot and lined the edge of it up with the 2 1/8″ score line and ran it through. Doing this only cuts out the piece that is under the cutting plate. It is then folded along the score lines and ready to embellish. I used Pool Party cut out with the same size label die and a piece of Very Vanilla cut out with one size smaller. I stamped the tea cup in Calypso Coral and markered the pansy in Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade from the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set (Occasions Mini). The greeting is from the Curly Cute Stamp Set and is also stamped in Calypso Coral. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line everything up. A piece of Calypso Coral Card Stock was punched along one side with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. To that I added two lengths of Calypso Coral 1/8″ Organdy Ribbon from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack (Sale-A-Bration). The stamped piece was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Inside I used some of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration) and another Label cut out in Very Vanilla. I love the mechanics of the card and it makes for a nice change from the traditional. Thank you so much for taking some time out of your day to stop and have a look. Have a great Saturday!
