Instructions:

  1. Stamp sentiment in Balmy Blue on large Basic White piece taking care to stamp it where it won’t show once card closed.
  2. Adhere Basic White piece onto Balmy Blue card case with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  3. With about 1-3/4” Tear & Tape on inside top and bottom edges of Balmy Blue, close inside flap where gift card will go. Adhere 2” x 4” DSP to Balmy Blue flap that will show on front of card when closed then adhere the 1-1/2” x 4” piece to the inside left on top of where gift card will go.
  4. Stamp yeti in Balmy Blue and cocoa mug in Soft Suede and die cut both as well as scarf out of Soft Suede. Using Wink of Stella while ink still newly stamped, brush where steam is and inside of mug. It should smear. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere mug to yeti hand and scarf around neck.

A Fun Fold Thank You with the Apple Harvest Bundle

Create this card with the Apple Harvest Bundle from Stampin' Up! Card by Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

Last week Stampin’ Up! released some new dies- Perfect Partners – that coordinate with stamp sets in our current catalogs.  There are a lot of great dies – last week I featured the This Birthday Piggy bundle.  This week, I shared a fun fold card featuring the Apple Harvest Bundle.  It’s a beautiful stamp set and the dies really compliment it – making great cards for fall – apple season, and also for teachers! I have a daughter who is a teacher and so I love making apple themed cards for her and for her to share with her fellow teachers!

For my Facebook Live on September 6, I created a card with the Apple Harvest Bundle.   Watch the video below to see how I made the card.

This fun fold is really easy to make!  Of course you could use any punch for the “window” – for my card I used the Rectangular Postage stamp punch.
