New at SU! Blog Hop - August 2022 | Fun (Folds) for Fall with Apple Harvest

Fun (Folds) for Fall with Apple Harvest!

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Today I am hopping with the New at SU! Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who are full of creative paper crafting ideas to share with you and get you crafting!  Today is all about Fun for Fall as we share fall-themed fun-folds!

Today's project is all about fun (folds) for Fall!  So it didn't take long for me to pick the finest apples to play with... but it took me a while to decide the most fun way to showcase them!  Fall is apple picking time for my family... the more we pick the happier we are!  The Apple Harvest Stamp Set and the upcoming coordinating Apple Blossoms Dies (available now for pre-order for demonstrators) are the highlights for this fall fun-fold.

Creating this Trifold card was a blast from the past for me.  I made a trifold card a few years ago that was my inspiration for today's card.  You can view my inspiration here

Project Details... include some Crumb Cake and Masking Paper to create the apple trees on each of the Basic White panels adhered to the trifold Crumb Cake card base.  The scalloped edging is from the coordinating Apple Blossom Dies as is the Crumb Cake heat embossed sentiment panel.  The apple foliage image was  stamped in Crumb Cake ink.  A mask for the image was die-cut from Masking Paper and adhered over the stamped images to achieve the continuous realistic look of an apple tree.  Stampin' Blends Markers were used to color the stamped images... the apples are Real Red, the branches are Crumb Cake and the leaves are Mossy Meadow with Night of Navy for shading.  The card is presented as being tied like a package.

Here's what the recipient would get a glimpse of after untying the Crumb Cake Baker's Twine bow.

And here's the entire card opened with the center panel having plenty of room to correspond to the recipient for a special occasion or just because you are thinking of them.  And what's so wonderful about this fun-fold is that it fits nicely in the Basic White Medium Envelope which was also stamped on the front and the flap with the same image!

  1. Such a beautiful card! I love the fold, and the simple but so very elegant way you added the white layers and the stamps. All details are so pretty!

    1. Thanks so much, Annette! I love picking apples in the fall at a local apple orchard... nothing like trying to capture the feelings on paper.

  2. The layered images are so well done, Angie! And the scalloped edging works perfectly with the apples! What a lovely card!


Thanks so much for taking the time to post a comment. Your comments make me smile!
