Pretty True Love Fun Fold Card

 Hi Everyone,



Today I am hopping with the Stamp n Hop Group and you may have joined me from Jill's blog, welcome. The theme is 'Fun Fold Card' so I have made this pretty Thank You card using the lovely True Love designer series papers and some sunshiny daffodil delight to make me feel like Spring is on the way. I have made this one as a 5" x 7"card for a change.  Click on the link below for the video tutorial showing how I put this card together.

Materials

1 piece of daffodil delight card stock 7" x 11 3/4" and 1 piece 3 1/2" x 4"
1 piece of basic white 3 1/4" x 3 3/4"
1 piece of dsp 4 1/2" x 6 7/8", 2 pieces 1 5/8" x 6 7/8", 4 pieces 1 5/8" x 1 3/8"
1 piece of contrasting dsp 3 1/4" x 3 3/4"
Flowers from the True Love dsp (I have fussy cut these)
Scrap of basic black card for the sentiment
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Well Written dies
Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends
Old Olive Stampin Blends
Multipurpose adhesive
Dimensionals
Trimmer
Simply Scored
Bone folder

Instructions

On the long side, score the daffodil delight card at 1 3/4", 3 1/2", 5 1/4" and 7".

Turn the card 90 degrees and cut at 1 1/2" between the 1st and 3rd score lines, flip the card round and then repeat the cut at 1 1/2" again.

Fold and burnish the score lines starting with the 7" and make that a mountain fold, then valley, then mountain again (see sample template).


Add the dsp layers to all the panels leaving a small border around them.

Add the contrasting dsp to the remaining panel of daffodil delight.

Colour in the floral image using the Stampin Blends.

Adhere the panel to the card front and then add the floral image using dimensionals.

Die cut the sentiment and then add to the card front.

Adhere the remaining white panel to the inside of the card so that it is underneath the decorated panel and can't be seen.
