Our challenge this week is brought to us by Kris & all it involves is a “Fancy Fold“.
If you google “Fancy Fold“, a whole heap of different instructions & Tutorials will pop up. The hardest part of this challenge is to decide on what type of “Fancy Fold” you will do.
I decided to try my hand at the “Free Standing Pop-Up Card”. This type of card has been around for quiet some time, but will admit it is the first time I have attempted it. I was really surprised at how easy it is to put together.
To do all my score lines, I used the new & fantastic Stampin’ Up! “Simply Scoring Tool“
Stamp Set – Cottage Garden
|Back of Card…|
Ink – Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi
Cardstock – Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ribbon – 5/8″ Organza – Whisper White
Punches – Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border
Accessories – Sticky Strip, Snail Adhesive, Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Craft Knife, 2-Way Glue, Simply Scoring Tool
Prior to scoring the long piece of Whisper White Cardstock, I randomly stamped my images using inks of Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi & Daffodil Delight.
For the part that pops up, I stamped 2 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock with Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi & Daffodil Inks. One piece is for the front which you see when it pops up, while the other piece is for the back to wirte my message.
|Front of card…|
The flowers for the front were stamped onto scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Melon Mambo Ink, cut out & addplied to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I applied a Pearl in the middle of each flower with 2-Way Glue.
I punched 2 strips of Daffodil Delight Cardstock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. I have had this punch for sometime, but never used it. I think I will be using it heaps more now, as it is such a beautiful punch. When adhering these strips to the Whisper White Cardstock, I ensured that the punched pieces were on opposite sides. Both pieces were then adhered to a piece of Wild Wasabi Cardstock with Snail Adhesive.
To complete the card, I wrapped a piece of Organza Ribbon around the body & tied bow just off centre.
This card is also for my group’s challenge, where we had have to use the colours of Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo & Wild Wasabi. We could create a card, scrapbook page, project or any other item as long as we used the above colours.
