Stamp to Share Internatinal Design Team Blog Hop | Frosted Floral

Hello stamping friends! Welcome to this months Stamp to Share International Design Team Blog Hop. This blog hop we are creating with products from my second favourite Bundle/Suite in the Stampin' Up!® 2018 Holiday Catalogue -  First Frost Bundle and the Frosted Floral Suite.

Any stamp set and DSP with flowers or a floral look and you've got me and this First Frost Bundle and Suite has completely got me. It's just gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. The soft and dreamy florals have a frosted look that you can usenot only in the Festive Season but all year long.

For my card today I've made a Napkin Fold card with a gorgeous belly band. The actual card shows off some of the stunning Frosted Floral Specialty DSP and the belly band show cases the stamp set, framelits and the beautiful Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon. 

For how to make this Napkin Fold card I followed a few different tutorials that I had saved on one my Pinterest boards. I mainly followed this one for the actual measurements. It really is quite an easy card to score and fold but once all folded together, decorated and embellished, looks quite intricate.

The 'brown' card base is a 12" x 12" sheet of Soft Suede from the Neutrals 12' x 12'" Cardstock Assortment Pack, trimmed down to 11" x 11". I then scored and folded the Soft Suede into the Napkin Fold Card and then accented with the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP.  The DSP has some beautiful and elegant textured designs printed on shimmery white paper for that gorgeous subtle shimmer. Oh its so pretty! The photos here and in the Stampin' Up!® 2018 Holiday Catalogue don't do it justice. This is one DSP pack that you have to see in real life! So get it TODAY!!!

The belly band starts with the actual band made out of Blushing Bride cardstock, and then stamped on that is the long 'leaf' image from the First Frost stamp set, stamped in Blushing Bride Classic Ink, for that tone on tone look. Then on that is layers of ribbon, trim, die cuts and stamped images, most from the Frosted Floral Suite but not all.

To open the card you just take off the belly band and then just pull two flaps from two opposite corners and, the way the card has been folded and the mechanics of the folds, the card should just 'pop' and unfold to open.

On the inside of the card, each triangle has been accented with the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP and then the centre panel is to write your sentiment. You could stamp and embellish the centre panel for even more of a WOW and a special card. To make the card even more special you could make a co-ordinating envelope using the Envelope Punch Board. 

I love the mix of the dark neutral card base, the bright purple in the DSP and then the contrast of the soft colours in the belly band bringing the whole card together. Pretty, well it is to me. Check out my card here that I made also with the First Frost Bundle for more First Frost ideas.
