Fun Fold Friday #46 Paper Blooms Oval Occasions Easel Card


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday series and this week I have made a simple easel card because I wanted to show off this pretty FREE (yes FREE) designer series paper.  The dsp comes as an offering in the Saleabration brochure for 2021, FREE with a £45 purchase from either of the catalogues and it's so pretty, lovely colours.  The stamp set and punch is the Oval Occasions Bundle and if you buy them together you can save 10%.  Click on the link in the side bar of this blog post to get to my online shop and see what else is available, you won't be disappointed.

This is a very simple fun fold card that can be changed up for any occasion and can be fairly plain as in todays example or can be embellished as much as you like if its for a special occasion, the possibilities are endless.  Let me show you how I made it, click on the link below to see the video tutorial on my YouTube channel.

On the long side, score the night of navy card at 2 1/2" and 5", fold and burnish to make the card base (both mountain folds) so that one half forms a triangle on top of the base.

Adhere the largest piece of dsp to the base of the card and then the two matching strips to either side of the front fold.

Adhere the whisper white strip to the inside of the top folded section to write your message.

Adhere the contrasting dsp to the remaining piece of night of navy card.  Add glue to the bottom half of this piece and then mount it on the front section of the folded half of the card.

Punch out two scalloped ovals in night of navy and two plain ones in whisper white. Stamp the two sentiments on your whisper white ovals using the night of navy ink. I've also stamped the tiny flowers at either side of the sentiments.

Add the whisper white layer to the night of navy using glue and then add dimensionals and mount one on the front of the card and one in the centre of the base, this one acts as the stopper for the card and makes the front stand up.

make a tiny bow with a piece of the white twine and add to the bottom of the sentiment label with a mini glue dot.  Add some rhinestones for a bit of bling.

This is a really simple card, I hope that you like it and will give it a try.
