Fun Fold Fun

I love a card design that is easy to make but looks complicated! Here's a fun fold - I think it's called an Arrow Fold card - that we made at our team meeting a few weeks ago. It's a great design for showing off your fancy DSP & it really highlights a sincere sentiment.

The card base, in this case Bermuda Bay cardstock, is a regular size 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4". Score lines are then made on the card front, on the diagonal. They fold back on themselves & the resulting triangles are covered with DSP. I used the subtle side of a sheet of the Fine Art Floral DSP.
The sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set is perfect & steals the show when mounted on die cuts from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The  white butterfly is cut using the Butterfly Beauty Dies & the one on the inside is stamped with one from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.

Stampin' Up!'s colour coordination makes card making extra easy. Along with matching stamps & dies & sentiments galore I can create & share with family & friends.

Check out all the catalogues & products available from my online store HERE.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to comment if you love this card & let me know if you'd like to see more fun fold variations.
