Girly Fun Fold Card
I found the directions to make this card on Kelly Acheson’s blog and finally had a chance to play. Her directions are easy to follow and once you get the idea, it is really quite simple to make. Thank you Kelly. My card is pretty much a case of hers, just the colours are changed up.
I started with a card base of Pool Party and embossed the front flap using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I added a piece of the Sweet Sorbet Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card and then to the card base. I punched a 1-3/4″ Circle from Whisper White and attached it to a 2″ circle cut from Basic Black card using one of the Circle Framelits Dies. The Basic Black circle is attached to a 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle cut from Pool Party card and the whole piece is attached to the top of the Designer Paper section to poke through the 2-1/2″ Circle which is punched through the card base. I cut a bodice from the same Designer Series paper using the Dress Up Framelits. I added a skirt to the bodice which is a folded and sponged Tea Lace Paper Doily and wrapped the waist with Pool Party 1/2″ Seam Binding. The dress is then attached to the card base. I sponged some Pool Party ink onto a flower cut from the Flower Trim (retired – I stocked up on these because I thought they were so lovely) and attached it to the waist of the dress. I stamped the greeting from the Sketched Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Pool Party ink and sponged the edges with the same ink. I attached this to the card base and also added another flower. To open the card you lift the embossed flap and then open the dress section to reveal the place where you can write your message. I cut a piece of scrap card using the Dress Framelit Die and sponged Pool Party ink into the negative space to create a background for the greeting from the Really Good Greetings stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink.
I think this is such a cool card and I need to make the time to create a few more versions. I’d really love to hear what you think.
Bye for now,
