A Fun Fold Card & August Giveaway!

Do you have a favorite Designer Series Paper?  I have so many, and this project is a great way to show off the beautiful DSP!  This Get Well Soon fun-fold card was a blast to make!  I’ll share the easy directions with you in this post!

Healing Hugs - Rooted in Nature - Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper - Blackberry Bliss - Grapefruit Grove - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' - Stampin' Up!

This card layout is a CASE from Angie Leach.   The card starts with a 12″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Designer Series Paper scored at the 1-3/4″, 4-3/4″ and 7-3/4″ marks.  Fold the DSP accordion-style so that it shows the patterns you want exposed, and crease with a Bone Folder.  To give the card some stability, I adhered the back onto a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Blackberry Blis cardstock.  I also secured the front-most flap to the next fold with SNAIL to make a sturdier front flap for the sentiment.

Any of the Nature’s Poem DSP would be suitable to use for this card — the backs are as gorgeous as the fronts!

Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper


The Sentient—I used the new stamp set called “Healing Hugs” for the sentiments.  The fonts are beautiful, and I also love the flowers in this set.  I used Grapefruit Grove ink onto a 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, then mounted it onto a 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ layer of a Grapefruit Grove with SNAIL and popped it up onto a 3″ x 3″ Blackberry Bliss layer.  The whole piece was popped up with more Dimensionals onto the front card flap.

Inside The Card—The card pulls open like a Z-Fold card, and I added a 2-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White on the inside for the message.

Lovely Leaves—I created some cute little leaf embellishments using the Nature’s Root Framelits.  First the leaves were die-cut from Grapefruit Grove cardstock, then I ran them through the Big Shot again using the matching embosslit that comes in the set.  I love the cool vein texture that it creates!  They are attached with Glue Dots and adorned with a Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine bow, also added with a Glue Dot.
