Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio

Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a “pear-fectly” wonderful little gift idea to share with you.  This Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio is a gift, a card, and a mini album all in one neat and tidy 5 1/2″ square package.  It’s one of my box style cards, which means I’ve loaded it up with all kinds of tea party goodies on the inside.

The Fruit Paradise flowers are so very lovely!  By adding in some green and gold tones with the pink, the color palette transitions gracefully into fall.  And do you see those darling wee pears?  Those were a gift from my sweet friend in Montana.  (Becky is a cake artist.  If you want to have your socks knocked off, definitely visit her website!)

The focal image is from the cut apart page of the collection.  Stitch onto green cardstock, then back with dimensionals to give it some extra depth and dimension.  Then add some Laserowe Love chipboards to really make it sing!  Man, I love these intricate chippies!  The piece on the top is not altered in any way.  That is how it comes out of the package.  The piece on the bottom is a 2-layer chip.  I heat embossed the little flowers with gold , then added teeny tiny pearls to the center of each flower.  You’ll find links below in the supply list.

The beauty of this collection cannot be overstated!  It is so warm and inviting to work with.  I just love it!

And there’s the tea party tucked inside the box pocket at the center of the folio.

I’ve added a decorated packet of Biscoff cookies, one of my treasured vintage silver plate spoons, and a little tea bag wallet.  There’s a small honey packet tucked inside the tea wallet, too.

Flip the folio over, and look what you find: a lovely little photo album on the back side. There’s room for 4 photos here…and one more little surprise hidden on the last page.

It’s a double pocket with inserts and the sweetest little art tag!

I think this would make a lovely birthday or anniversary gift.  (First year is paper…so that would be perfect!)  And these images just make me swoon!  I’ve loaded this one up into my ETSY shop.

I hope I’ve shared some ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  Look for the linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons Card Folio

Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons Card Folio

Hello, Friends!  Don’t you just love lemons?  They take center stage on this Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons card folio.  I’ve layered up pretty papers with my Amazing Paper Grace Bella Luce Oval dies to create this summery card confection.

TIP: Create realistic looking texture and dimension on your fussy cuts.  Place the fussy cut face down on a foam  mat.  Then use a large ball stylus to gently round the edges and center of the fruit and the foliage.  This actually wrinkles the paper a bit, and makes the lemons pop off the page.

Prima Fruit Paradise Lovely Lemons Card Folio: Tips and Tricks

Gold foil accents in the 12×12 Fruit Paradise Pad add a touch of elegance to this card design.  I like to save those foiled papers sparingly.  So the base layers of this card are made with papers from the Fruit Paradise A4 Pad.   This saves me money, and I can use that glamorous foiled paper where it will be seen!

TIP:  Use a “triangle” in your card design whenever you can.  It helps to move the eye around your creation so that all the elements will be seen.  On this card, I created a triangle with the placement of my flowers. Try this trick next time you are struggling with card composition.  It really works!

Creating a box pocket inside the card allows you to tuck in some lovely goodies.  And the little sentiment pocket on the top of the card is a great place to add a greeting or a gift card.  Now your card doubles as a gift!

I’ve been on the search for more of these charming vintage silver plate spoons.  This lovely teaspoon has been polished up and made party-ready.  The diamond shape is the smallest die i the Bella Luce Oval Die set.  Die cut and emboss for maximum impact.  Then shade the raised edges lightly with a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The large packet is imported vanilla custard tea biscuits to accompany the tea and honey stick.

You simply have to have Lemon Tea with a lemon themed card!  This little tea wallet is so sweet!

I can picture this card as a guest at a picnic in a field of flowers somewhere…and yes, there are gauzy white dresses in the photo!  To see more Fruit Paradise projects, click HERE. And, I’ve listed this card in my ETSY shop, should you wish to purchase it.

I hope I shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your next crafty adventure.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Doesn’t this just look like summer on paper?  This 6″ x 6″ easel shaker card is adorned with Bright Pink Plaid Ribbon and a teeny tiny snippet of Hot Pink Satin with a metallic edge.  Gorgeous Fruit Paradise Papers, Flowers, Laserowe Love Chipboard and sparkly sequins add to the delicious fruit salad going on here.

Here’s a fun little embellishment you can make in a jiffy:

  • Find a paperclip.  This one is gold, but you could use pink or white and it would still look great.
  • Cut fishtail banner ends on a scrap of ribbon.  This one is about 2″ long.
  • Now loop the ribbon between the legs of the paper clip.  Add a dot of hot glue to hold it in place.
  • Then thread a wee vintage button and hot glue on top.

Cute, right?

The stopper on this card is the cascade of flowers.  I also tucked in the center from a crocheted doily to add more texture.  And Gold Metallic String adds just the right touch of shimmer to my bow cluster.

The inside is simple and sweet with just enough room to add a little note.  This is pretty enough to be used as table decor at a summer party.
