Adorable Owls - Dandy Designs Front Flip Fun Fold - Stamp'n'Hop Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

The theme for this hop is 'Sale-A-Bration and I wanted to play with the Adorable Owls and the Dandy Designs dsp for my card.


1 piece of fresh freesia card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 3 7/8" x 2 7/8", scraps for stamping
1 piece of dsp 3 5/8" x 3", 1 piece 3 5/8" x 2 5/8"
Adorable Owls stamp set
Stylish Shapes dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends
Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends
Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends
Memento Black ink
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the card at 4 1/8" and BEFORE you fold, make a mark at 2 3/4" down from the top of the score, this is the cut mark. Cut this top portion off the card front and then fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the larger piece of white to the inside of the card and the smaller one on the front flap. Then add the dsp, I've only covered part of the inside to just below the top of the front flap so that it leaves space to write a message. I've used the reverse of the dsp for the piece on the front of the card.

Using the card that you cut from the front, die cut the 2nd largest square. 

Stamp the owl image and colour with the Blends and then die cut with the next size down in the squares. Layer them up together and then adhere the bottom half of this to the card front as centrally as you can.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap and then die cut with the smallest of the banner dies.

I'm going to make more of these in different colours to use as Customer Thank You cards at the end of the month, I think they will be cute.
