I am having technical difficulties, so sorry I’ve been delayed in my posts.  Some of you early risers may be wondering where I have been!  Thank you for hanging with me.

If you follow me very often, you know I LOVE folds in my cards.  Various folds are my favorite cards to make.  So today I have another great fold that is super simple to do.  And a great way to use those leftover pieces of DSP.  A win/win to me:)

Sorry for the finger in the photo!  It wanted to open up and not be photographed.  Here is the card opened also.

I really like this simple fold and it really showcases the designer series paper.  The white section could be DSP as well.  You could add your sentiment and signature on the panel just above that spot, where I have the small flowers DSP.  I wanted to use more of the stamps from the set so chose to have the large white area.  The “stitching” is a nice touch and so easy to line up being the photopolymer stamps.  I did not get it exactly centered but am happy with how they overlapped.

I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the spray of leaves behind the main flower on the front.  They are not listed in the supply list since you cannot purchase them individually.  I really hate that!!

I have the measurements listed below.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you have a great day and will return tomorrow.


Measurements / Directions: 

  • Card base is 5 1/2 X 11 (with 8 1/2 X 11, you only get one card from the piece)
  • Score at 1 1/4, 4, 6 3/4,  Fold and Burnish, then make Mountain/Valley folds
  • Cut DSP 2 @ 1 X 5 1/4 ( This is for the smallest section and I used different patterns for variety)
  • Cut DSP 2 @ 2 1/2 X 5 1/4 ( or 1 DSP and 1 White if you want your sentiment there)
  • Cut 1 White (or DSP) at 4 X 5 1/4
