The Crafty Collaborations Team is comprised of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we participate in several collaborative projects, including Blog Hops, like this one, to inspire all of us in our passion for crafting. Our goal is to create, share, and inspire every crafter to keep our creative energy flowing.
Today we have are showing our cards from a Crafty Challenge. Every month there is a specific challenge. This month’s challenge was decided with the roll of the dice yielded Sympathy, Two- Step, Black & White, Trinket and Fancy Fold. Sympathy and Fun Fold sound a bit incongruous in name but I think in actuality, it worked out okay.
Here’s what I made:
Let’s see how I did with the challenge:
- Sympathy- Check.
- Two Step Stamping- Check. Petal Park Stamp Set, although I didn’t line up my second step! (It’s much more fun when you don’t line them up!)
- Black & White- Check. I did add a bit of gray- a neutral. No big deal, right?
- Trinket- Fail. OOPS! Too bulky to mail. I don’t use them. I did use bling!
- Fun Fold- Check. I did a Z fold- in landscape, just to be different.
Here is the Z Fold when it is opened.
I love the Sympathy sentiments in the Heartfelt Hexagon bundle. It is an early release from an upcoming catalog that you can order NOW! Here is the card standing for display.

INstructions for Petal Park Z Fold Sympathy Card
- Start with a Basic Black card base cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score it at 2 1/4″ and 5 1/2″.
- Fold the traditional way on the 5 1/2″ score line and fold the the left side back over the front of the card base on the 2 1/4″ score line.
- Run a 3″ x 4″ piece of Smoky Slate through your Cut & Emboss machine in the Crosshatch Basics 3D embossing folder. Adhere to the card base under the front flap. (DO NOT ADHERE THE FLAP DOWN.)
- Use Memento Ink to stamp the “open” flowers on the 3 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Basic White card stock. Concentrate the flowers in a diagonal area from bottom left to top right.
- Stamp the “fill in” stamp with 2nd generation (stamped off) Smoky Slate ink. Do not line the “fill in” stamps up with the outline flowers. Just stamp randomly in the same area.
- Adhere this stamped piece to a 3 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Smoky Slate card stock.
- With the card base in the Z fold position, adhere the left hand side of the matted piece to the fold.
- Stamp “With Sincere Sympathy” with Memento ink on a scrap of Basic White cut 2 3/8″ x 1″.
- Mat on a piece of Basic Black cut 2 1/2″ x 1 1/8″. Adhere to the front using dimensionals.
