A Fishing Fun Fold for Make My Monday # 220

Welcome to the newest Make My Monday bi-weekly challenge #220. Our host for this challenge, Johanna, chose Any Theme Fun Fold as the theme. When you finish here, please visit the challenge site to see what the rest of the very talented design team members created. Then, don’t forget to upload your creations to our gallery. We look forward to seeing your creations there!

Here’s my fishing fun fold card:

I’ve posted one of these flap fun folds before and you can find that here. Connie Stewart’s videos are fabulous and I used this video for both flap cards. All of the measurements and directions are on the video and are much easier to follow than my step-by-step. Connie always makes cards so easy to recreate.

Of course, posting a fun fold means that I’ll also be entering this to the Creative Creases challenge!

I used the Let’s Go Fishing 12 x 12 inch DSP (designer series paper) and Countryside Corners die set. The sentiments come from the Sentiments Silhouettes stamp and die set.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have a Peachy Day!

The July InKing Royalty Blog Hop is going BLUE!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! We are embracing some (or all) of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful blues for today’s hop – there are so many great ways to showcase the blues in the current color families! We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Before I do anything else, I need to thank Try Stampin’ – or not – on Tuesday challenge # 614! My card was chosen as one of the Top 3 for # 614. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You can see that card here.

While my newest favorite color combination is Boho Blue and Copper Clay, and I actually made a card using this color combination. Then I decided to do something else.

Here’s my SU! Blue card:

I wound up using Let’s Go Fishing DSP, and that’s what really inspired the whole card. Therefore, I combined the Let’s Go Fishing DSP, with the Countryside Corners die, and the Cheerful Daisies dies.

I’m still so tickled “peach” with my updated logo. Thanks again, Henry Bacon!!


  • Trim a piece of Night of Navy cardstock to 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, and score it at 4-1/4 inches.
  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to 5-1/4 by 4 inches for the inside of the card.
  • Trim a piece of the Let’s Go Fishing DSP to 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches for the front of the card.
  • You also need a piece of the DSP trimmed to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. I punched a 1-inch circle of Night of Navy for the envelope seal.
  • Stamp your sentiment on a piece of leftover white cardstock. I use.d a sentiment from Cheerful Daisies and stamped it in Night of Navy. I did have to mask each half using a Post-it Note.
    • Put a Post-it Note on “MY DAY”.
    • Add Night of Navy ink to the stamp.
    • IMPORTANT: Remove the Post-it Note before stamping!
    • Stamp the first half of the sentiment.
    • IMPORTANT: Clean your stamp. Don’t ask me how I know.
    • Use the same Post-it-Note and cover “YOU MADE”.
    • Add ink to the stamp.
    • IMPORTANT: Remove the Post-it Note before stamping!
    • This set is photopolymer so adding the rest of the sentiment was pretty basic.
  • Crop the sentiment, and set of daisies and a leaf from white cardstock.
  • Crop another set of daisies and the leaf, as well as the branches, from Boho Blue.
  • Crop the Countryside Corner die from Night of Navy cardstock. Adhere to the DSP using multipurpose liquid glue.

Finishing Up:

  • After cropping the label, I used the Night of Navy marker to accent the stitches on the label.
  • Next, I used a clear Wink of Stella to cover all of the Boho Blue branches.
  • Then, I used the Wink of Stella to outline all of the edges of the white daisies and leaf.
  • Using multipurpose liquid glue, slightly offset your white daisies on top of the Boho Blue daisies.
  • Add dimensionals under the blue daisies and adhere to the card.
  • Using glue, adhere the branches so that they slide under the daisies but will also go under the sentiment label.
  • I added a couple of strips of tear-&-tape to the back of the sentiment label.
  • Then, I had to play around with the silver thread (a lot!) to find an arrangement that wouldn’t overpower the card. Having the tear-&-tape on the back helps that process.
  • Add dimensionals to the sentiment label and adhere to the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
