Welcome to week 4 of the 2024-25 Colour Creations Blog Hop and this week we are looking at another of the new InColors called Shy Shamrock!


I was quite excited by the name of this colour having married a descendant of an Irish Convict but I found it a little hard to make it the hero of my project this week but I hope you will be ok with what I have created for you. Yes I have gone back to a fancy fold and maybe that was the issue! The fancy fold needed to be the hero!

For my card today I have used the Simply Zinnia bundle and the Zinnia 3D embossing folder that you can purchase as an Online Exclusive.

Ok my friends so I like to challenge myself. This is a card I found on Iced Images and she calls it a Pop Up Step Fold Card. I think I would call it a Pop Up Step Fold Box card. The reason it is a challenge is I was on a zoom call while I was watching the video to work out the measurements so I had the video on silent while I was trying to cut and score. But as you can see it worked out ok! My next trick to get one that fits in our envelope and I nearly got there but ran out of time to decorate so that will have to hold over for another day.

Here is the side on view so you know why I want to call it the Pop Up Step Box card!

I really liked this sentiment with the the Simply Zinnia stamp set so I wanted to make sure this card had lots of flowers as well. I cut the sentiment and the background with the Deckled Rectangle Dies.

For the base of the card I used Shy Shamrock cardstock to make the Pop Up Step Fold Box design and then on a piece of Basic White I used the blending brush with Shy Shamrock ink to blend a little bit of an oval shape in the middle of the card stock.  I then embossed that card with the Zinnia 3D embossing folded and  cut it into all the segments to go on the card but also layering them on a piece of Basic White as I wanted just a bit more white space and stability in the card.

As on the front I have coloured the Zinnias with the Stampin' Blends. I have coloured the stalks and leaves in light and dark Shy Shamrock and a little bit of light Mossy Meadow. The Flowers are light and Dark Petal Pink, Peach Pie and Bubble Bath with a dash of Petunia Pop, Pumpkin Pie and Calypso Coral!

As always you can fold these box cards flat and put them in an envelope or your own hand made box.

Of course I couldn't go without adding the bling to the card so I have used the Shy Shamrock Ribbon and the Classic Matte Dots I have coloured the white ones with my Shy Shamrock Stampin' Blends to add some colour.

Sharon, whether your call it a Pop Up Step Fold Card or a Pop Up Step Fold Box card, it's another fabulous fancy fold from you! I love the abundance of flowers and the beautiful sentiment from the the Simply Zinnia stamp set.

Your card is amazing once again Sharon, and what a bright and happy colour combination you’ve chosen

And as always the fancy fold is the great feature of your cards Sharon. Such a lovely bunch of Zinnias popping out of it.

Goodness gracious, that is an amazing fancy fold design. So much to look at, but I'm glad you kept the background layers white. The flowers really pop is those beautiful colours.

Michele Taylor said...

Everything is back to normal!!! Sharon has created a fancy fold card. I love your Pop Up Step Fold Box card as it perfectly showcases not only Shy Shamrock but your beautifully coloured zinnias too.

Christine Blain said...

Oh, how pretty! The pinks and oranges you’ve used, to colour all the lovely flowers, go so well with Shy Shameock. Beautiful card, Sharon.

Rachel Palmieri said...

I do think you’ve taken multi-tasking to a whole new level Sharon!!! Your flower box is sensational, love the spill of flowers with just the right amount of shy shamrock.
