A Fun Fold Challenge for Cardz 4 Guyz # 341

Welcome to the newest Cardz 4 Guyz challenge! I’m the host for challenge #341, and I chose fun folds for the theme. When you finish here, please visit the challenge site to see what the rest of the very talented design team members created. Then, don’t forget to upload your creations to our gallery. We look forward to seeing your creations there!

Here’s my Hey Chuck fun fold:

A colleague needs a birthday card for his father using the New York Mets colors of blue and orange. I added Crumb Cake to Starry Sky cardstock and Pumpkin Pie 6 x 6″ DSP (designer series paper) for this side-step fun fold. Connie Stewart’s tutorial videos are wonderful and easy to follow. I used her video for this side-step card, and you can find her video here. Just one of the wonderful things about her videos is that she includes measurements and scoring directions. When I trimmed the Pumpkin Pie DSP for the card layers, I also trimmed a piece to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. Then, I punched a 1-inch circle from Starry Sky DSP and ran it through my XYRON create-a-sticker for the envelope seal. Follow those, and you can create your own fabulous side-step fun fold!

Creative Creases:

Since this is a fun-fold, I will be uploading this card to the Creative Creases challenge. It’s the third anniversary for this challenge, and I am so happy for the challenge coordinator, Debbie Mageed, and the rest of the design team members! I love that it’s always anything goes with a fun fold theme.

What I Did:

  • I stamped everything I needed using my Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad.
  • Unless noted, I used multipurpose liquid glue for adhering the pieces together.
  • Stamp the two roosters and birthday cake on white cardstock.
  • Stamp the fence piece on Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Next, I colored the roosters using the blends combos for Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Crumb Cake.
  • Then, I added a bit of sparkle to the flame parts of the cake using a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.
  • Crop the fence, roosters, and birthday cake using the coordinating die set.
  • At the same time, I cropped the weather vane from Starry Sky cardstock and then used clear Wink of Stella to the whole vane.
  • Stamp the two sentiments on Pumpkin Pie cardstock. In hindsight, I probably should’ve stamped it in VersaMark and used black embossing powder for this part.
  • Crop the Pumpkin Pie and Starry Sky cardstock pieces using deckled rectangle dies.
  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to fit between both deckled rectangle layers.
  • Adhere all the sentiment layers.
  • I already had the brick-embossed Crumb Cake cardstock, and it really works on this card.
  • After trimming it to size, I adhered it and added the weather vane.
  • Add dimensionals to the rooster and adhere to the Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Adhere the fence piece.
  • After stamped the birthday sentiment on the white cardstock, adhere it to the back panel.
  • Adhere the smaller rooster and birthday cake to the white cardstock.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
