Let's Make a Card: Best Dressed Suite Fun Fold

Last month my STARS team did a fun activity called Let's Make a Card.  We sent "card guts" to someone and the recipient had to make a card with only those supplies, but could add one additional item.

My "card guts" were from Connie, which included a piece of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  She had also pre-cut the Blackberry Bliss card base into a fun fold (see measurements below).  Above is what I made with it.

And, this is what she sent me...

My additional item was the new Gilded Gems (from the Ornate Garden Suite).

I never made a fun fold card like this, but it was really fun to make!  I highly recommend giving it a try.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Take a closer look at the flowers, stamped with Blackberry Bliss and blended with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. 
  • I added Old Olive to the leaves (with glitter brush). 
  • And finally the Gilded Gems for bling!

This is the first time I've had a chance to play with the Best Dress Suite and it won't be the last!  I also don't think it will be the last time the DOstamperSTARS will be playing "Let's Make a Card"!

With Mother's Day approaching fast, the Best Dressed Suite of products are a perfect choices.    Add it to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O
