Today I’m posting the last two cards we made in my fun folds class last week.
This card uses a gatefold done in a landscape layout.
I cut a piece of Fresh Fig cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored it at 2 3/4″ and 8 3/4″ and folded the ends into the center along the score marks. Next I cut four pieces of designer paper at 2 1/2″ x 4″. I attached two pieces with the floral designs to the front flaps and attached the two pieces with the marbleized design to the inner flaps. I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set with Fresh Fig ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with one of the circles from the Circles Layering Framelits set. Next I die cut a piece of Mellow Moss cardstock using the largest label from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. I cut a piece of the 1/4″ Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon, ran a strip of snail adhesive on the back of the ribbon and centered it on top of the label, centered the circle over the label and attached it.
To attach the label to the front of the card, I ran adhesive on one side of the label and attached it to the left flap, leaving the other side unattached so that the card will open!
I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 ” x 5 1/4″, stamped leaves in Mellow Moss ink on the bottom corners and attached it to the center of the card.
The next and last card is a simple easel card.
I cut a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored it at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ and folded at both score marks. I cut another piece of Blushing Bride cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and attached it to the Blushing Bride piece. Next I cut out one of the rectangular frames from the Petal Promenade designer paper and stamped the live, laugh, love greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with Fresh Fig ink and attached this to the Smoky Slate.
I then attached this piece to the front of the card, only adhering it to the bottom half, leaving the top free, which is what makes the tent fold when the card is opened.
I created the easel “stop” by die cutting a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock with one of the larger ovals from the Oval Layering Framelits Dies. I stamped a flower in Blushing Bride ink and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits. Next I cut two leaves in Mossy Meadow with one of the dies from the same set. I arranged the leaves on the Smoky Slate oval, glued them down, attached the flower to the oval and then attached the oval to the inside of the card, making sure to position it so that the front of the card would stand up properly.
I really enjoyed trying out some of these fun folds, as did my customers!
Thanks for stopping by today.
