I am showing you a card I saw on Pinterest last week with this fold, so I decided to sit myself down & play around trying to create the fold. Thank you Lyssa for your inspiration.
It showcases the gorgeous “Floral Boutique” DSP which is retiring at the end of May. I have managed to finish about of the DSP for my card with just little bits & pieces left. I’ve challenged myself to create a card using those pieces, so be sure to bop back in a couple of days to check out what I’ve done.
The fold actually looks harder then it really is. I was quite surprised at how quick & easy it was to complete this fold as it looks harder than it really is.
Now is the perfect time to let you know that I have updated my Retired Products ( ex the current products retiring), so be sure to head on over to my “Retired Product 4 Sale” Page to check it out. There is still more to add but that will be done over the next week. A lot of it has already gone!
I think I will be creating more of these fun “Fanfare Fun Fold” Cards especially for classes. It is also a great way of using up your retiring DSP.

Don’t forget to check out all the great products on the 2017 Retiring List by hopping on over to my Shop. Stampin’ Up! have been updating items on the list and they are selling fast! When placing an order Online, don’t forget to use May’s Host Code.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
220. A Special Note – Floral Phrases
My post today is a little different in that I am participating in Kylie Betucci’s International Blog Highlights. This is the first time I’ve done this, so hopefully we will get it all right.
What is Kylie’s International Highlights? It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight. It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product. Each month Kylie has a different theme & this month is “Weddings“.
What is so different about this Blog Highlight? YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites. The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.
What do I do? All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.
Can I leave comments? Sure you can. Once you have voted, click on any picture & comment on those that you really love. You know how bloggers love to read your comments.
My card has been created using Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum & Mint Macaron CS. I am loving the all White….. My flowers have been created from Whisper White CS, die cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits, & sponged with Sweet Sugarplum Ink & a Sponge Dauber. The leaves are die cut from Mint Macaron CS using the Rose Garden Thinlits. “Congratulations” is from the “Floral Phrases” Stamp Set & is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum.
