Fun Fold Card

I'm trying to use up the tremendous stack of designer paper I've accumulated through the years, and today I'm using some SU! (retired) Crisp Cantaloupe papers. I got this pretty GinaK stamp set a while ago and only used one sentiment from it, but today I've used the 2nd sentiment from the set, along with the floral image which I colored with Copics. I added some copper and gold stickles to the flower centers for a little sparkle. Here is what it looks like closed with some sheer ribbon.

Here is what it looks like untied, with a 2nd panel of the stamped image and a different sentiment on the inside.

Here's the inside panel.

 I really don't know what this fold is called. I saw it on a blog a long time ago and wrote the directions down so I could make it again. I like that it folds flat for mailing when it's tied up with sheer ribbon.

I'll enter this into the following challenges:

NBUS #23 - never before used schtuff - (GinaK stamped image from
"On my Mind and in my Heart.")

MIUCB #46 - anything goes + fancy fold

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend too!

This card is amazing, Carol! I have seen this card around and have no idea what the name of it is but it's really cool! Love the color and beautiful floral image you used! I like that it uses lots of DSP that we all have and I like that the ribbon closes it up nicely! Well done, my friend...I love it! Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine! :)

Beautiful coloring and a lovely image. It's great to be able to use papers we have. It is so hard for me to cut them up but I'm getting better. That is a very sweet sentiment.

Brenda said...

What a beautiful card Carol! I've never seen this card fold before but I am loving it. Kinda reminds me of the "joy fold" card, but not. I love the image and sentiments you used as well as the papers. And speaking of papers, I really need to start using my own up as I have my fair share too. I think what I am loving about this card fold, is that you still have the middle open for writing in. Very cool card my friend! Hugs, Brenda
