I held a fancy folds class a few weeks ago and this is one of the cards we made. I love Cucumber Crush and am going to be sad when it leaves on May 31st. (The 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog comes out on June 1st and it will have 5 new In-colors. Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, Delightful Dijon, and Mint Macaron will also be retired then.)
This card was so easy to make. It folds flat to mail, but stands up by itself once it’s taken out of the envelope. The Cucumber Crush Card Stock base was cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored and folded at 1″, 2-3/4″, 3-3/4″, 5-1/2″, 7-1/4″, 8-1/4″, and 10″. A 3-1/4″ slit was cut in the middle of the 5-1/2″ fold. The Cucumber Crush stamped panel, which stands in the middle of the card was cut to 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
The flowers from the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set were stamped on Whisper White Card Stock in Black StazOn Ink. The flowers were colored using a Blender Pen and Elegant Eggplant Ink. The leaves were colored with Cucumber Crush Ink. The small butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set. It was stamped in Crushed Curry and punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. This stamp set and punch are also retiring.
