Hello there… do you know what today? Besides Tue the 27th? It is one week until the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes LIVE…. which also means – it’s LESS THAN one week until the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Remember there are last chance products awaiting and that sale ends May 3.

Today’s card is one I am using in a class for today. Folks will be learning tips & tricks to create SIX fun folds. They won’t be fully creating all of them, not in two hours, but they will do the folds and adhering card stock & DSP then adding sticky notes so they can finish them at home. This particular group wanted a firehose version. We’ll see how it goes – it’s a LOT in that short a time!

Sweet Ice Cream Fun Fold – #1

Above is the finished product. Here are two photos prior to decorating and with post-its.

I began with a standard 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Thick Basic White panel, scored at 4 1/4. I marked very lightly the 21/8 mark just where I wanted to die cut the circle. And of course, this doesn’t have to be a circle – it can be an oval or square or a diamond, but for this card, it’s a circle. With the marking I placed the Layering Circles die fairly close. to the right edge of the paper and placed it on the die cutting machine. In order to die cut just half the circle, place the top plate over the area to be die cut – and with the markings I knew just where that was. The neat part is, the machine will cut only where the top plate is 👍 Once removed from the machine, create the score line at 2 1/8, avoiding scoring the circle. Burnish the folds so they are mountain, valley – as shown. Now stamp and decorate!

Sweet Ice Cream Fun Fold – #4

This is the ‘inside’ of the card. There’s lots of room for the sender to write something personal, yet, when the card is closed, it won’t be seen.

  • The DSP is from the Ice Cream Corner DSP and can be found in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog. It is cut 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhered with liquid glue.
  • The cone was created with more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP and using the Ice Cream Corner Builder Punch
  • Stamp the sentiments using the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I used Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay
  • Stamp the ‘sprinkles’ using Early Espresso ink
  • Add Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed gems and this portion is complete

The front of the card is already partially done – just the circle needs decorating. I stamped the popsicle in Mango Melody ink and Sahara Sand ink and added more of the Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed gems – and the card was done.

Sweet Ice Cream Fun Fold -#1

For the envelope I added more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP and the card was done – voila!
