Hi Stamping Friends!
I'm finishing up the "two cool" versions of my Earthen Textures LIVE Class today. While my 5-Card LIVE Class Kit will feature cards with the coordinating Earthen Elegance Designer Series Papers, my "two cool" versions will be giving you the same cards made with Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper. I think you'll love how different the cards look in blues! You can see a sneak peek of the first pair of cards on yesterday's blog post.
Today, I'm sharing a couple of fun-fold swap cards that I recently received that also feature the Countryside Inn DSP used with other stamp sets.

Countryside Inn Lasting Joy Easel Card
Rhonda Bassler created this delightful fun-fold card spotlighting the beautiful blues in the Countryside Inn Suite! Not only is the card base what I call a "photo album" style card, it also has a surprising easel card element so you can display it.
Background Basics—The card begins with a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Boho Blue cardstock, scored along the 11" side at the 4-1/4" and 5-1/2" marks. There is also a diagonal score line from top corner of that 11" side to the bottom 4-1/4" score line.
Rhonda folded the card base in half and adhered the panel between the score lines together to make a flat "spine" on the card base. She decorated the front of that spine with a 3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Countryside Inn DSP layered onto a 1" x 4" piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock.
Easel Background—Rhonda embossed a 4" x 4" piece of Misty Moonlight with the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder and adhered it to the bottom front diagonal panel only, so that it would stand up when the card front is folded on that diagonal line.
Easel Décor—Rhonda used images from the Lasting Joy stamp set to add large Misty Moonlight flowers and small Boho Blue flowers and leaves to a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Basic White. She layered it onto a 3" x 3" piece of Night of Navy cardstock, added a little loop of Boho Blue Textured Ribbon to the top left and popped it up with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—The Lasting Joy sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink onto a Basic White Countryside Corners die-cut label. She also added more Boho Blue flowers, then matted it onto a Misty Moonlight Countryside Corners die-cut and popped that up, as well. She finished with a couple of Boho Blue In Color Dots around the focal point.
Easel Kickstand—Rhonda die-cut another Basic White Countryside Corners die-cut for the inside easel kickstand element. Once again, there's a Lasting Joy sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink and more flowers in Boho Blue ink. It's popped up with Dimensionals on the inside of the card, positioned so that the easel card front can rest behind it for display.
Card Base Backside—Here's a look at the backside of the card. You can see the decorated photo album spine and I'm holding the inside of the card. You can see the Boho Blue card front with the Misty Moonlight embossed layer adhered only to the bottom of that card front, up to the diagonal score line. Hope that helps you to get a visual on this cool fun fold! I just love it!
Countryside Inn Timeless Arrangements Card
Amy Combs created this awesome modified "joy fold" card, again featuring the Countryside Inn DSP. This time, the card uses the Timeless Arrangements Bundle from the Online Exclusives selection. Oooh…it coordinates perfectly!
Card Base #1—The card base begins again with a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Boho Blue cardstock, scored at the 5-1/2" mark. The front of the card is trimmed away on the diagonal from the top of the score line to the bottom outside edge. Amy decorated the front with 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Countryside Inn DSP that was diagonally cut from top left to bottom right.
The inside of the card is decorated with a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock with a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Countryside Inn DSP on top.
Card Base #2—The second part of the card base is a 3-1/4" x 6-1/2" piece of Boho Blue cardstock, scored at the 3-1/4" mark. This mini card is adhered to the center of the inside of the card, with the card opening upward. When closed, the diagonal front closes first with the smaller inside card folding over the top of it.
Card Front Décor—Amy decorated the small card front with a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Countryside Inn DSP layered onto a 3" x 3" piece of Misty Moonlight. She wrapped some Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon around the top and tied it into a double-knot.
Next, Amy stamped the Timeless Arrangements sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink onto a Basic White All That circle die-cut. She used the Timeless Arrangements Dies to add Boho Blue die-cut flowers and Night of Navy die-cut leaves underneath the circle. It's popped up onto a 2-3/8" Circle Punch shape of coordinating Countryside Inn DSP, then mounted onto the card. She finished by adding some Boho Blue In Color Dots around the focal point.
Here's how it looks when you open the first small card.
Inside The Card—Amy finished the small card inside with a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Basic White writing area, decorated with a 2-3/4" x 3/4" strip of DSP and layered onto a 3" x 3" piece of Misty Moonlight. Absolutely fantastic!
