I know it is now Fall (it was 30 degrees when I got up this morning!!) and Christmas is coming but I decided to make a fun summery card. Sometimes I get so caught up in the new catalog that I forget there is still the Annual Catalog out there with wonderful products. I decided I hadn’t used the You’re A Peach Suite lately so I took it out. This suite includes the stamp set called Sweet As A Peach, the coordinating Peach Dies, You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper (I didn’t use this on the card today) and the Mini Jam Jars. It was the first suite I bought out of the Annual Catalog because I loved it the minute I saw it.
The fun thing about this card is it is a fun fold card. I don’t know the name of it but it doesn’t really matter. Here is what it looks like when you lift up the front of the card.
This is what it looks like when you open the left triangle section.
To make this card I first cut an A2 (8.5″ x 5.5″) card base in Basic White card stock and folded it in half. Then I placed it in my Paper Trimmer and cut from the score line to one corner. I cut a piece of 4″ x 5.25 piece of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and then cut that in half from corner to corner. I adhered one of the pieces to the front of the card base. I also cut another 4″ x 5.25″ piece of DSP and adhered that to the inside of the card base.
The folding part in the middle of the card is 8.5″ x 3.25″ and then folded in half. I decorated the front of that also using the Pansy Petals DSP. I stamped the peach using Pale Papaya ink and the stem using Granny Apple Green Ink. Then I cut those two images out using the coordinating dies from the set called Peach Dies. I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Freesia Ink onto a 2″ x 3″ piece of Basic White card stock and then onto a 2.25″ x 3.25″ piece of Fresh Freesia card stock. Then I adhered the entire piece onto the card base.
It was a pretty easy fun fold card to do and did not take a long time.
Oh man, this is a great fun fold! I like the simplicity of it, yet it is indeed a fun fold. Great way to use DSP, as well
What a fun Fun Fold card! And I love all the coordinating Designer Series Paper. Great card!!
