Folding Get Well Soon

March 28, 2019

I have been playing around with fancy folds lately and I thought I would share with you my latest version of a Bridge Fold card.  You will laugh at my dimensions but I often make cards using both inches and centimetres!  I cut my card base from Thick Whisper White card to measure 8″ x 10.5cm.  This will mean my card will fit in a standard envelope.  I scored along the 8″ length at 1-1/4″, 2-1/5″, 5-1/2″ and 6-3/4″.  I cut 14cm x 1-1/4″ piece to create the bridge.  I attached pieces of Garden Impressions 6″ x6″ Designer Series Paper to each of the 1-1/4″ panels on the card base and also on the bridge piece.  To decorate the centre of the card, I stamped “Get Well Soon” from the Healing Hugs stamp set onto Whisper White card 2-1/2″ x 9.5cm using Night of Navy ink.  The stamped Whisper White card is attached to Night of Navy card and then to the large central panel.  The bridge panel is attached to the two outside 1-1/4″ panels. I cut a large circle from Whisper White card using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and embossed it using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed card to the left hand side of the card front.  I stamped the flower from the Healing Hugs stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Mango Melody ink and cut it out by hand.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card twice using Shaded Spruce ink and cut them out by hand.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flower and then the whole piece to the embossed Whisper White card.

You can’t actually write a message onto the central panel unless you do it before you put your card together, however, a message can easily be written on the back of the central panel.  I love how these cards come together and all you do is fold the left panel flat (or the right panel) and the card will go into your envelope.

You can find a million ideas and tutorials for these cards on Pinterest, however, my inspiration came from a post by Song of My Heart Stampers.

Bye for now,
