Hello, and welcome to the Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop! For today’s blog, we are challenged to post a fun fold card. I am certainly not the queen of fun folds! However, there are several that I turn to frequently because they are easy! The Double-Triangle Fold card makes the card interesting to open and is the one I am showing you today.
- Old Olive cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 11″, scored in half both ways (at 4 1/4″ and 5 1/2″), then cut diagonally end to end and scrap to punch sprigs.
- Designer Paper – 4″ x 5 1/4″, cut diagonally.
- Bumble Bee cardstock – 2″ x 3 1/2″, die-cut with the fourth largest Stitched Nested Labels die and, 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
- Basic White cardstock – larger scraps to punch with the daisy punches and 3 3/4″ x 5″ (inside)
- Early Espresso cardstock – scrap to punch flower with Strawberry Builder Punch.
I am showcasing the Ornate Garden Specialty designer series paper (DSP) with triangled pieces on the front of the card. Using only one die (Stitched Nested Labels) to create this card, I used our amazing Stampin’ Up! punches to cut the flower and sprigs. Punches are so quick and easy to use! A true confession: I punched the Early Espresso center of the daisy with the retired Bunny Builder punch. However, the new Strawberry Builder punch has a small flower that would work great too! There, I feel better. LOL!
I used a dimensional to layer the two slightly curled Basic White petal pieces together, then added the Early Espresso center. A single dimensional is holding the daisy to the die-cut Bumble Bee layer. I added the punched sprigs behind the flower, as shown. Finally, I glued the unit to the left panel only, careful not to apply glue exceeding that area. I added Gilded Gems to the flower’s center and a couple more on the card for the finishing touch.
Because this card can be used for almost any occasion, I oped to keep the inside simple. The daisy is stamped with Early Espresso ink and colored with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blends. I can always stamp the inside sentiment as the need arises. Does anyone else do that?
I hope I have inspired you to create a fun fold card similar to this. Now it is time for you to hop along to the rest of the talented demonstrators in this group.
