Berry Burst is a color that will retire soon since it’s part of the 2017-19 In Color collection. The last time my Stampers With ART group did make-n-takes we focused on projects showing these retiring colors. I shared three of the four projects on my blog already…
- Tranquil Bunny for Easter or Baby – a card that shares the Tranquil Tide and Powder Pink colors
- Fable Friends Corner Bookmark – a bookmark that shares the Fresh Fig color
- Stars Cards Featuring Designer Papers – another bookmark that shares the Lemon Lime Twist color
Today I’m sharing this beautiful bridge fold card to show off the last of the five colors, Berry Burst.
Here are the details if you’d like to recreate this card.
- Berry Burst Cardstock
- 8” x 4″ scored at 1” and 2-1/2″ from each end
- 4″ x 2″
- Whisper White Cardstock
- Two pieces that are 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″
- Scraps for die-cutting the flowers
- Petal Promenade Designer Paper
- Two pieces that are 3/4″ x 3-3/4″ (I used the purple floral design)
- Two pieces that are 1-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ (I used the white slate design)
- Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon
- Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon
Products I used: See below for a list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment about an inch from the top of the vertical 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Whisper White Cardstock piece.
- Trim the ends of the ribbons at an angle, then add them to this 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Whisper White piece using SNAIL. Wrap the other ends over to the back rather than trimming them off.
- Stamp the “Hope your day…” sentiment on the other vertical 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Whisper White Cardstock piece.
- Fold Berry Burst card base as shown to get the shape of the card set up.
- Adhere the Whisper White pieces and the 1-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ Petal Promenade strips.
- Die-cut the 2″ x 4″ Berry Burst piece with the long detailed floral die. Add a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the outer edges of the backside of this piece.
- Flatten the card base so one side of the card is extended open and the other is collapsed into a z-fold. Attach the die-cut piece flush ith the bottom of the card so the Tear & Tape is holding onto each of the 1″ wide outer sections of the card base. This is hard to explain well. So if it doesn’t make sense, this video may help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIWNsmMNkUM
- Now adhere the 3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Petal Promenade strips.
- Attach the two die-cut Whisper White flowers using Glue Dots. And finish them with a rhinestone centers.
Bridge fold cards flatten to fit in our medium envelopes. So they can be mailed quite easily.
And what a wonderful surprise for the person on the receiving end!

OCCASIONS CATALOG NEWS
There are some products that are selling out in the 2019 Occasions Catalog already. These products were going to retire with this seasonal catalog anyway, but due to complications with Stampin’ Up!’s die supplier & not being able to replenish the inventory, the following items are no longer available:
- Doily Builder Thinlits Dies (item 148553)
- Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (item 148529)
- Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies (item 148549)
- Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (item 148548)
ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS
Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer will be retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. And there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blade Refills will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, SU will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier.
The dies and folders that will be offered will not be from our current supplier. So there will be small changes: the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). Click here for more details regarding the changes to our die-cutting machine, dies and embossing folders.
I realize for many of you that this news may be a little jaw-dropping at first. I had a similar reaction. But after giving it a little more thought, reminding myself that change is an opportunity for new and better, and knowing what a strong company Stampin’ Up! has been for 30 years, I now anticipate some marvelous changes to come! And I’m excited.
