Pals October Blog Hop: Wicked Folds!

octojber blog hop

Welcome to the Pals October 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper - Pretty Pines bundle - Peaceful Noel Bundle - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

This fun fold layout is borrowed from the talented 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 to be showing 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 Tranquil Tide 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 Joyous Noel DSP would be suitable to use for this card — the backs are as gorgeous as the fronts!  Look at the beautiful copper foil touches!

The Sentiment—I used the new stamp set called “Winter Woods” for the sentiment.  The fonts are beautiful!  I used Merry Merlot 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 Merry Merlot with SNAIL and popped it up onto a 3″ x 3″ Copper Glimmer paper layer from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.  The whole sentiment piece was adhered onto one half of the front card flap.  Remember not to get adhesive on the right side of the front layer, as the right half  isn’t adhered to anything and opens to the inside of the card.

Pretty Pines –  I cut out a couple of pine branches from the Pretty Pines Thinlits in Tranquil Tide, and a pinecone in copper foil and pinecone back in Soft Suede card stock. They were attached with Glue Dots and adorned with a bow made from the Merry Merlot and Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon.  Before I made the bow, I cut the length of ribbon in half lengthwise to make it thinner.

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.  I love the way I can see both sides of this beautiful DSP!
