Fun Fold

SU! Feels Like Frost Fun Fold

Helllloooo – it’s Wacky Wednesday… you know, hump day, middle of the week and all that. Today’s card features a W-Fold using Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP as the headline.  W-Folds are so much fun, just notching things up out of the ordinary.

Feels Like Frost W-Fold
#1

And here’s the ‘innerds’…

#2

I used the Love of Leaves Bundle to highlight the leaf image on the DSP. And here’s the ‘how to’..

  • To the Whisper White card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2), adhere Highland Heather card stock (3 7/8 x 5 1/8), then a layer of the Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP (3 3/4 x 5) – both with liquid glue.
  • Again with Whisper White, stamp the sentiment in Rococo Rose ink. Die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies. Approximate finished size of die cut is 2 7/8 x 7/8.
  • With Rococo Rose card stock die cut three leaves (see photos above for reference) using the Stitched Leaves Dies. These emboss and die cut at the same time!  Love this look :O)
  • Adhere the longer leaf to the sentiment panel, just the bottom of the leaf. Put dimensionals on the remainder of the leaf and on the sentiment panel. Adhere to the card front and voila – front is complete!
  • Oh… I did add 3 Elegant Faceted Gems to the front and a Linen Thread bow.

For the inside…

Here I used Stitched Leaves Dies, Love of Leaves stamp set and Celebrate Tidings stamp set for the inside sentiments. I ran two panels of Whisper White (4 x 5 1/4) through the Tasteful
Textiles 3D embossing folder and adhered these to both sides of the inside of the card. Details of the W-Fold…

  • Cut a length of Whisper White to create the Z-Fold – 1 3/4 x 11: score at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4. Fold and burnish: valley, mountain, valley. The mountain is in the center of the card.
  • Cut 4 panels of Highland Heather card stock – 2 3/4 x 2
  • Cut 2 panels of 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP in Purple Posey – 2 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Cut 2 panels of Whisper White for dry embossing – 4 x 51/4

#4
  • Adhere the DSP to 2 panels of Highland Heather with liquid glue.
  • Adhere leaf with liquid glue as well
  • On the two white panels, stamp the leaf of choice in Rococo Rose ink, stamping off at least once, then stamp your sentiment in Highland Heather ink.
  • Adhere completed White panels to Highland Heather panels with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the scored Whisper White strip to the inside of the card, centering top to bottom and to the edge of the embossed panel – adhering JUST THE END PANELS.
  • Now adhere the decorated panels thusly: right end panel first, then lay next panel directly on top and close the card adhering it with liquid glue. Complete other two panels in same way – laying one on top of the other and closing the card. This keeps the panels in direct alignment.

For the final touches, I added 3 Elegant Faceted Gems to each of the two end panels and covered the leaves with Wink of Stella. I also covered the small leaf on the sentiment panel with Wink of Stella. It doesn’t show in the photos, but it adds a lot to the completed card.

The envelope..

Feels Like Frost W-Fold
#5
  • Cover the envelope flap with strips from the same Feels Like Frost 6×6 DSP and the 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 in Purple Posey.
  • Stamp a leaf from the Love of Leaves stamp set on the envelope front in stamped off Rococo Rose. Cover with Wink of Stella.

YAY – beautiful card and it is complete!

 

SU! Birthday Triple Cube Pop Up Fun Fold

Hellooooo 😁 It’s F-A-L-L, officially… and today’s card is sort of fall and definitely a birthday card. It was, I confess, my first attempt at making this fun fold, and I’m generally pretty pleased with it. We learn from mistakes, hopefully, and I should make another real soon as to remember what I would do differently… Here ’tis…

Triple Box Fun Fold
#1

The gorgeous Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is the highlight of this card – and the background to it is the Brushed Metallic card stock in copper and the card base is Cinnamon Cider. I used the Ornate Frames Dies to frame the sentiment and Fancy Phrases stamp set for the sentiment. I added the Gilded Gems on the sentiment label.

Ornate Frames Dies, Gilded Gems
#2

The Butterfly Gala Bundle (stamp set/ butterfly punch) were used for the butterflies (3 of them) and several Blends for coloring: Lt Purple Posy, Lt Bermuda Bay and Lt Mango Melody. To add as bit of glam on the butterflies, I added Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I also used gold metallic trim for the butterfly antennae – this is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

For the “inside” decorations I used the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP and the Boho Indigo Dies for the vases.

On another of the ‘inside panels” I created a banner/ tag using the Fancy Phrases Bundle (stamp set and Fancy Tag Topper Punch).

Fancy Tag Topper Punch
#5

The tag was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then the flowers colored with Calypso Coral and Just Jade Blends. Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were centered on the two flowers. Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack – copper metallic for the trim + Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack using the Vanilla. I did trim the width to allow it to slip inside the prepared sleeve.

Here are photos in general preparation of this FUN FOLD… card cuts will be. listed at the end of this post.

tabs for holding the sentiment
#8

This is great picture of the tabs to hold the sentiment… each is about 1/2″ width x 2″ in length then folded in half. Adhere tear n tape to each side. Adhere the folded side to the fold of the lower ‘boxes’, centering. Remove tear n tape and carefully apply sentiment tag.
