An Authentic Pals Blog Hop Card


Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, we have a Tic Tac Toe theme. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we love reading your comments. Then, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My card today for the tic-tac-toe is the first row/column down with fancy fold, Father's Day and twine. I used the Legendary Ride bundle plus the Metal Plate embossing folder to create a twist fold card. My twist may not be perfect but it was fun to make. I have a Basic Black piece of card stock 8 1/2" by 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2". Then I scored one side/flap diagonal  from 4 1/4" in to the corner then flipped it.  On the outside, I placed a piece of silver foil embossed with the Metal Plate embossing folder on the left end and cut a square of Basic Black card stock and then another smaller in Basic White to add to my flap. I did stamp the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and added the black/white twine around before attaching. I then cut all the pieces from Basic Black, Red Red card stocks and silver foil for my motorcycle plus a red flame from the Legendary Ride dies. Inside, I added two more strips of the silver embossed with the Metal Plate embossing folder cut 1" by 4 1/8" plus a white piece of card stock where I stamped a Real Red flame. I then cut a label die from the Cheerful Daisies dies in white to stamp the sentiment from Celebrate You stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black.   

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are very excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on June 14th, when our theme will be showcasing the New 2023-2025 In Colors.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.
