Stampin' Up Fragrant Flowers Thanks Friend Faux Side Step Card

Today's card is a very easy fun fold using Stampin' Up Fragrant Flowers Bundle and Stampin' Up Like An Animal Specialty DSP.  This is a faux side step card.

I started with a piece of Poppy Parade measuring 5 1/4" x 8" scored on the long side at 1", 2" and 5".  I folded in accordion fashion creating 2 mountains and one valley.  See above picture.

I cut a piece of Evening Evergreen card stock 3" x 6" and scored at 4 1/4".  

I adhered Stampin' Up Perfectly Penciled DSP to the Poppy Parade card base with Stampin' Seal.

I cut a piece of Stampin' Up Like An Animal Specialty DSP that fits on the Evening Evergreen card stock.  I blended Petal Pink ink onto the DSP using a Stampin' Up Blending Brush.  I cleaned my brush off and then blended Poppy Parade ink around the edges of the same piece.  

I adhered the DSP panel to the Evening Evergreen piece before adding it to the Poppy Parade card base.  I adhered the Evening Evergreen to the bottom of the card base with Stampin' Seal.  I the add a little bit of adhesive to the flap on the Evening Evergreen and adhered it to the back side of the Poppy Parade.

I stamped 3 flowers from Stampin' Up Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set using Mementos Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Basic White card stock.  I colored each image with Stampin' Blends: Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Poppy Parade and Petal Pink.  I die cut each image with the coordinating dies.

I adhered the flowers on the DSP with liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I stamped the bold sentiment with Versamark Ink on a piece of Basic Black and heat embossed it with White embossing powder.
I stamped the smaller sentiment on Basic White with Mementos Tuxedo Black Ink.  I die cut each sentiment  with the coordinating dies.  I adhered the die cuts to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The inside is a piece of Basic White card stock with a strip of DSP to the bottom.
