3-Panel ‘Screen’ Fun Fold Card

Hey there! Did you catch my Facebook Live, I made a 3-Panel ‘Screen’ Fun Fold Card! I used the gorgeous Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Paper (retiring soon!) and sentiments from the Pansy Patch stamp set. It’s really a Z-Fold card with a twist. I used quite a few retiring items that will be available through May 2nd 2022, or while supplies last. The FB video has been uploaded to my YouTube channel Donna’s Creative Space, but you can click on the link below to watch. While you’re out on my YouTube channel Donna’s Creative Space, please like, share and SUBSCRIBE! Thank You, I really do appreciate it!

I started with a piece of Just Jade cardstock 5 1/2 x 10 1/2. Then I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to score on the long side at 3 1/2 inches and 7 inches. This created three 3 1/2 inch sections. I used the Everyday Label punch to punch out a small portion at the bottom of each panel. This created the look of ‘legs’ on the bottom of each ‘screen’ panel.

I cut 2 pieces of Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Paper at 3 x 4 1/2 and layered them each on a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock cut to 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 using seal adhesive. I adhered these 2 layered panels to my card base in the first 2 sections using multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped a sentiment using Just Jade ink on a piece of 3 x 4 1/2 piece of Basic White cardstock, then adhered a 1/2 inch strip of designer paper to the side just to add a little color.

I cut a Just Jade cardstock (retiring) die shape from the Hippo and Friends Dies (retiring) and mounted on the front panel using dimensionals. Then I cut a Basic White cardstock small Scalloped Rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies (retiring) and stamped sentiment on it using Just Jade ink (retiring). I adhered the sentiment to the Just Jade shape using seal adhesive.

I used a mini glue dot to adhere a bow made with the Just Jade & Gold ribbon (retiring). I cut a couple of Magenta Madness cardstock (retiring) blossoms using the Strawberry Builder punch (retiring), and adhered them using the mini glue dots also. I added a few Pale Papaya jewels to the center of the blossoms. I created a few more of these blossoms and added them to the middle and last panel for decoration.

2020-2022 In Colors from Stampin’ Up! retiring soon!

I loved these 5 In Colors, and will be sad when they’re gone! The 2020-2022 In Colors collection; Mistly Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Magenta Madness, Just Jade, and Bumblebee will be retiring at the end of April. If you liked any of these colors, be sure to stock up on the coordinating cardstock, markers, ribbon, embellishments, and most of all the ink and ink refills! I always buy the ink refill when I buy a new ink pad, just in case! If you need to know how to re-ink your ink pads you can check out my re-inking video HERE. But if you’d like to here more about these retiring colors and what is already on low inventory, check out my video below, and while you’re out on my YouTube channel Donna’s Creative Space, please like, share and SUBSCRIBE!
