International Highlights Winners Blog Hop




I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top ten of the February 2022 International Highlights. Thanks to all of your votes, I was voted #2 with my adorable Hello LadyBug Faux Step Fold Card.   The theme for the International Blog Highlights is "Thank You"!  You can check out my Ladybug Card I shared as part of the February Hop.

Today I'm sharing another card featuring the Stampin' Up! Symbols of Fortune Suite.  This is my favourite suite in the catalogue and I had fun making this pretty card!  The Soft Succulent Satin Ribbon is amazing and made it easy to create a pleat fold across the front.


Instructions
  1. Cut Crumb Cake card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Calypso Coral card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Designer Series Paper 3 3/4" x 5" and adhere to Calypso Coral card stock.
  4. Cut 10" of ribbon.  Adhere the left side to the back of the card stock piece.
  5. Add a strip of Tear and Tape Adhesive on the front of the card in line with ribbon.
  6. Start pleating the ribbon and adhering it to the adhesive as you go.
  7. Wrap around the back of the card stock and adhere.  Trim any excess.
  8. Adhere to the card base.
  9. Cut Gingko leaves from Soft Succulent card stock
  10. Adhere to the card base
  11. Stamp crane on Basic White card stock using Crumb Cake ink.
  12. Cut out using Crane die.
  13. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  14. Stamp sentiment using Calypso Coral ink on a scrap of Basic White card stock
  15. Cut out using Paper Snips
  16. Adhere to card base.
  17. Adhere Polished Dots.
  18. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  19. Stamp crane using Crumb Cake ink in bottom right.
  20. Stamp sentiment using Calypso Coral ink
  21. Adhere to the inside of the card base.

All of the supplies to make this card are available in my Online Store.
