Fun Fold Friday - #18 Inside Block Card Using Dressed to Impress

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Fun Fold Friday, today's card is called an Inside Block Fold Card and I first saw it on YouTube a while ago done by JanB and thought I would show you how to make my version of it.  I hope that you like it and give it a try.  It's simple but there are a lot of pieces to cut, once you have cut them all, the card is quick to put together. There is a YouTube tutorial on my channel to show you how I made it, click the link below:


1 piece of lovely lipstick card stock 6" x 10", 1 piece 2" x 4" 

Whisper white card stock: 2 pieces 2 3/8" x 5 7/8", 1 piece 1 3/8" x 5 7/8", 1 piece 2 7/8" x 5 7/8", 1 piece 1 3/4" x 3 3/4", 6 pieces 1 1/8" x 1 3/8"

DSP: 1 piece 2 1/4" x 5 3/4", 1 piece 1 1/4" x 5 3/4", 1 piece 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" and 6 pieces 1" x 1 1/4"

Dressed to Impress stamp set
Lovely lipstick ink
Simply Scored
Paper snips
Multipurpose adhesive
Bone folder


On the long side, score the largest piece of card stock at 3", 4 1/2", 6" and 7 1/2".

Fold on the 6" score only and put the fold to the top of the scoreboard with the 7 1/2" score visible on the top and make pencil marks at: 3/4", 2", 2 1/2", 3 3/4", 4 1/4" and 5 1/2".

Fold on the 7 1/2" score and put the shorter end underneath so you can see the pencil marks that you made along the 6" score line. Mark with a pencil at: 1/2", 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 3 1/2", 4" and 5 1/4".

Open out and join the pencil marks together with a ruler, this will make the marks for you to cut to make the blocks.

Fold again on the 6" scoreline and cut up the pencil marks to the 7 1/2" score.

Flip over and fold and burnish from the 3" (mountain), 4 1/2" (valley), 6" (mountain). With the block sections, the larger ones need to pop out and the thinner ones to go back, this forms like a square section in the card (see picture).

Now decorate all the different sections, lay down the whisper white first and then add the dsp on top making sure that you leave a small border all the way around each piece.

Stamp the perfume bottle and the sentiment on the piece of whisper white that is 1 3/4" x 3 3/4" and then add this to the lovely lipstick mat that is left.

Add to the card front using dimensionals.

Add the remaining whisper white section to the back of the card to write your message.

I hope that you give this a try, its much easier than it looks, there are just lots of pieces to adhere.
