Around the Bend, Bee Mine, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun card to share with you. I found the instructions on Pinterest while actually looking for something other than a card! You can see that video here. I don't know what the technique is called but it's easy and fun.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Sweet Sorbet card stock. Since it's an in color that is retiring soon I wanted to make sure I use more of it up before the end of April. Actually I forgot about that in color, it seems once the new ones come into play the previous ones are pushed aside.  Anyway, my card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut two pieces of Basic White card stock that measure 4" x 5-1/4" each. I taped one to the inside. 

On the outside piece I taped down four pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Bee Mine" 12" x 12" package. I cut these four pieces at 2-1/2" x 1-7/8". The DSP is scored on 4 corners. See the photo to know where each piece is scored. I marked my pieces at 1" on one side and 1" on the next side and folded the corner now. I did glue mine to hold it in place. 

Then I tape these pieces on the Basic White piece leaving about 1/8" border on all sides.

The words are from the retiring "Around the Bend" bundle using Sweet Sorbet ink. I kind of regret using that color. The Parakeet Party would have been too light and I think the Balmy Blue might have been too light too. I guess I should have tested it out on a scrap piece first. But I do know black Memento ink would have been way too bold. 

Once the words were stamped I taped that piece to the card base and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and a way to use up some of those scrap pieces of  DSP.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's friendship card,
