I’m giddy because my sister and I leave for this trip in just two weeks!!! I can’t believe this fabulous dream-come-true trip that I earned just sharing what I love is almost here!

This is the swap card I’ll be bringing with me. It’s an arrow fold card.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip. It’s an arrow-fold card that I made with the Mosaic Mood Designer paper and the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Since I learned how to make these arrow fold cards last month and adapted the measurements to work with our A2-size envelopes, I’ve already made a few different ones with our new products. Click here to see the one I made with the Magnolia Lane Suite of products. And click here to see the one I made with the Garden Lane Designer Paper and Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set.

I love this sentiment in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and felt that it went well with this card design. Plus sad to say, but I’m in need of sympathy cards lately.

Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It’s a pretty easy card to make as long as you can measure and fold accurately. Here are the details if you would like to give this arrow fold card a try.

Measurements…

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock
    • 5” x 4”
  • Mosaic Mood Designer Paper
    • 4-1/2” x 3-3/4”
    • Scrap for fussy-cutting the flowers and leaves
  • Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon
    • About 8″

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Mark the bottom front of the folded horizontal Very Vanilla card base at 2-3/4″. Mark each of the sides of the front of the card at 2-1/8″.
  • Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the 2-1/8″ marks with score lines. Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the upper corners with score lines.
  • This card is harder to explain with just written directions, so I encourage you to watch my video that I made for the Magnolia version of this card to catch all the tips and directions for making an arrow fold card.
  • Fold the outer score lines forward. Then fold the inner score lines backward to create the arrow. Use a Bone Folder to make the crease lines crisp. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the folded over sections of the arrow in place.
  • Mark the bottom of the Terracotta Tile Cardstock in the middle at 2-1/2″. Then follow the directions in the video for cutting from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the front sections of the card base.
  • Mark the bottom of the Mosaic Mood Designer Paper in the middle at 2-1/4″. Cut from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the Terracotta Tile sections of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card.
  • Fussy-cut the flower and leaves and adhere to the front of the card with Dimensionals.
  • Tie the bow and add below the flower with a Glue Dot.

Our travel documents for this Greek Isles trip arrived last week. But it’s been so busy here, that I haven’t shared them yet.

It was so exciting to open up. Stampin’ Up! always impresses with the beautiful packaging and gifts to its incentive trip earners. We are treated like royalty. Inside this beautiful ribbon-wrapped box…

Needing Prayers For My Father-In-Law

My father-in-law, Fred is in need of prayers and well wishes. I don’t want to share details because it’s not my place to do so. He IS home and stable right now. Tests are revealing some information yet there are many questions still unanswered. I’m hoping that by letting you know, you’ll be aware in case I have lapses in posts. Plus I really believe in the power of prayer. The more positive energy sent Fred’s way, the better. ❤️

I made this card from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set, Glitter Enamel Dots, and Nature’s Poem Designer Paper. I think it’s the perfect card to send to Papa. So we’ll put our notes inside and get it out in the mail today.

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 are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.
