Fun Fold Friday - #4 Buckle Fold Card using Tropical Oasis

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Episode 4 of Fun Fold Friday.  Today I want to show you a buckle fold card using the lovely Tropical Oasis designer series paper and the Love What You Do stamp set. This card will fit in a 6" x 6" envelope. Click on the link below to watch the video tutorial.

#4 - Buckle Fold Card


1 piece of Whisper White Thick card stock 10 1/4" x 5 3/4" and 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"
1 piece of Daffodil Delight 4 1/8" x 5 5/8" , 1 5/8" x 5 5/8"and 1 3/4" x 4 1/2"
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 3/8"
Scraps of Real Red and Whisper White for the sentiment
Love What You Do stamp set
Real Red ink
Classic Label punch
Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder
Die Cutting machine
2" circle punch
Starburst punch
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply Scored


Score the whisper white card on the long side at 4 3/8" and fold and burnish.

Run the 1 1/2" white and 1 3/4" wide daffodil delight strips of card stock  through the die cutting machine using the embossing folder, then score the daffodil delight one at 1/2" on the long side to form a tab. 

Adhere the daffodil delight mat and the dsp layer to the front of the card. With the opening edge of the card pushed right into the classic label punch, make sure its centralised from the top and the bottom, punch through all three layers, this gives the opening to feed the closing flap through.

Adhere the embossed white strip to the remaining daffodil delight strip and then fold the daffodil embossed layer around it so that it is level with the punched opening on the card front. Make a little mark on the side of the embossed card layer and then glue the flap at this point, wrapping the tab to the back of the strip.  Then adhere the whole lot to the inside right hand side of the inside of the card so that it shows alongside the card front when it is closed.  Feed the end of the flap through the punched out hole so that it lies inside the card.

Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card and also one on a scrap of whisper white in Real Red and then using the 2" circle punch, punch out the one for the front of the card.  Punch out a starburst from the scrap of real red and glue them both together.

With the flap through the hole in the front of the card, add the circle sentiment in position using dimensionals so that it covers the hole you have punched in the card.

Another quick and simple fun fold card, I hope that you like it.
