Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, our blog hop theme is Party Time! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Here’s my party time card:

Since I’ve used the book binding easel fold, this card also qualifies for the Creative Creases Challenge.  If you love fun folds, this challenge is for you because that’s the only requirement!  

Anything Goes with a Fun Fold for Creative Creases #52

I’ve already posted two of these bookbinding easel fun fold cards. You can see them here and here. The second link has directions and step-by-step pictures for creating this fun fold card.

For today’s card, instead of using a full front panel, I used two diagonal panels.

  • For today’s card, I used two diagonal panels instead of the whole panel for the front.
  • To create the diagonal panels, trim a piece of DSP to 1/8 inch less than your width and height of the front part of the card.
  • Then, trim the DSP in half diagonally from the top right side down to the bottom left side.
  • If the panels don’t fit the way you want, you can trim down the sides down.
  • HINT: Don’t trim on the diagonal line because the pattern won’t line back up properly.
  • For this card, I used the scalloped border die from the Scalloped Contours die set and a piece of an adhesive foam sheet to create the stop for the easel part of the card.
  • I’m kind of stinking pleased the way the inside Scalloped Contour white cardstock sits under the scalloped stop for the easel.
  • These cards are super cute and fun to make! I hope you try one out soon!
