Festive & Fun Bay Window

Ready for another Festive Friday challenge?   What is the Festive Friday challenge?  The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity.  An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration.  To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery.  We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and look forward to seeing what you create.


I used from the Inspo List texture, fun fold, alcohol markers, animals/critters/birds, and stripes.  


The texture comes from the Christmas Tidings Embossing folder.  The Basic White panels were all embossed using the folder.  The folder is on the Last Chance List and is 10% off, while supplies last.   The animals/critters/birds are from the super cute Festive & Fun stamp set.  This stamp set is also on the Last Chance Products list so grab it while yo can.  The animals were all colored using Stampin' Blends (alcohol markers).  Here's the list of the colors I used-Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Shaded Spruce, Lemon Lime Twist, Blueberry Bushel, and Granny Apple Green.  The colors I used are from the fun and bright striped pattern in the Merry Bold and Bright DSP.   This pack of paper is also on the Last Chance list.  I will definitely miss this pack of paper.  I have enjoyed the bright polka dots and stripes.


Here is another look at the fun fold and why it is called the Bay Window fold.  This is an easy fold since the scoring does all the work.  The card base is 4-1/4" x 11" Blueberry Bushel.  The scoring is 3/4",  2", 3-1/2", 4-3/4", 5-1/2".  The DSP pieces 1/2" x 4"  and   1" x 4" (cut 2).  The textured Basic White pieces 1/2" x 4" (cut 2) and 1-1/4" x 4".   You will also need a 4" x 5-1/4" of Basic White CS for the inside of the card.


The 3/4" score line nearest the fold is secured down.  Inside the sentiment is from the  Beary Cute stamp set (also on the Last Chance list).  


The greenery behind the animal panel was cut using the Christmas Classics dies in Lemon Lime Twist CS.  These beautiful dies are also on the Last Chance List.  The sparkly berries are from the Adhesive-Backed Glitter Sequins and yes, they too are on the Last Chance List.  So many fabulous things are on the list!  You can check out the whole list HERE.   There are things on the list that are already sold out.  Shop early to avoid  disappointment.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for the challenge.


I look forward to seeing your creations in the Festive Friday Challenge gallery!
