I absolutely love this fun fold card idea! The dimensions for this card are so easy and don't leave a lot of weird extra pieces of cardstock. Just cut off half of your card front, rotate it, and glue it back on the front of your card. Then add patterned paper and stamped images to create your masterpiece!
Be sure to scroll all the way to the end of this blog post to see my gorgeous Celebrate Sunflowers card. This is my entry this month for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights. There are so many awesome designers in her gallery! After you're done here, I hope you'll take a moment to jump over there, vote for my card, and then check out all the other card designs as well.
So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Cutting Dimensions for this Fun Fold Card Design
Cardstock: 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2", then cut at 8 1/4" Patterned Paper: (2) 4" x 2 1/2" Whisper White: 5 1/4" x 4" Whisper White: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Cardstock: 3 3/4" x 5"
Ridiculously Awesome Card Idea!
My first sample card idea is so, so easy! I used the Brights 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper in Mango Melody and the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set. I stamped the greeting and a few hearts on the inside using Mango Melody ink. I added a few Artistry Blooms self-adhesive sequins in Mango Melody as well for just a bit of sparkle!
My second easy card making idea uses the Way to Goat stamp set. I love these goats! They're so darn cute. I colored this little guy giving me side-eye with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. This card uses a couple of the gorgeous plaids from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper pack.
Even though this is an easy card making idea, your card doesn't need to be simple! Here I used the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and more of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I stamped the large sunflower, leaves, and greeting with Soft Suede ink and colored it with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I added some of the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack by tying a bow and adhering it under the sentiment strip.
For the inside of this card, I added some more plaid patterned paper. To delineate a space to write a personal message, I added another piece of 2 1/4" x 4 1/2" Whisper White cardstock. I stamped a smaller sunflower to match the front of the card.
This card is just so rich and full and absolutely gorgeous!
