Welcome to the new Cardz 4 Galz challenge, #170! I’m hosting this challenge, and I chose fun folds for the theme. I am always looking for new fun folds to try, and I’d love to see your fun folds in the gallery! I hope this post, and the posts from the other design team members, inspires you to play along with us!
Once again, I turned to JanB’s YouTube videos for my inspiration. I have a colleague who hasn’t purchased a store-bought card in the 3+ years he’s been at the school, and I needed an Easter card for him to give his parents. While this may look complicated, it really isn’t, and we will keep that our secret.
I followed right along with JanB’s video and here’s my fun fold card:
If you click on the link for Jan B’s video, you will see that I used Hand-Penned Petals DSP, just as she did. I used all the same measurements that are given in the video. I even put a scalloped circle on the back of the inside of the card, just like JanB.
The only layout difference is that I added a layer under the focal image on the front, as seen below:
If anything was “tricky” about this card, it was this part.
Here’s how I did it:
- First, I stamped two images on pieces of scrap white cardstock.
- Next, I stamped the flowers and leaves on one image only. In order to coordinate with the DSP, I used Highland Heather and Mint Macaron stamp pads.
- Then, I cropped the image using the coordinating die set.
- Thankfully, I have plenty of removable tape, and used that to align the colored image with the uncolored image. This allowed me to crop both the images at once using a layering circle die.
- After that, all I needed to do was put dimensionals under the colored image and adhere the two pieces.
After I Finished this Post:
Right before I was ready to schedule this post, I thought I needed to add some bling to this card. So, I grabbed the coordinating genial gems and added one to the center of each of the flowers in the pull-out part of the card. Here’s pictures of my new and, hopefully, improved card:
