Today, I used the Cheerful Basket Bundle to make a Get Well Fun Fold card. The Cheerful Basket Bundle is made up of the Cheerful Basket Stamp Set and the Full Basket Dies. I love the versatility of the stamps and dies. The stamped images are perfect for coloring. But, the dies offer the option to construct a basket by weaving pieces of cardstock. This adds texture and dimension to the card. I love fun folds and these images seemed perfect for my card.
I chose a fun fold design that is one of the easiest cards you can make. Poppy Parade was used for the card base, complemented by Crushed Curry. The primary pattern of Designer Series Paper was from Celebrate Everything. For my second pattern of Designer Series Paper, I chose a scrap I had from the Teacup Boutique. The Basic White front layer was embossed using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The stamped images were colored using the following Stampin’ Blends: Dark Real Red, Dark Poppy Parade, Dark Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate.
Watch the video below to see how to make the fun fold, as well as, how to use the die cuts to weave a basket and tips for using Stampin’ Blends. Further down, you will find the measurements, written instructions and supply list. Additionally, there is one more card. I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment below and let me know which one you like best!
