I very much enjoy making Fun Fold cards. Today I have one to share that I have done once previously. It is maybe more of a Fun Cut, than a Fun Fold. But I enjoyed making it.
This card is made using the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle, as well as the matching Ice Cream Corner Designer Series paper. The ice cream is cut using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I really enjoy punches for quick cards. They are great when making multiples as well.
The cut of the paper is my Fun Fold. I have made the same Fold / Cut for a card once before when I used the Donkey stamp set during Sale-A-Bration. You can see that card HERE.
A Bonus Tip for you : Even though the cards look very similar, they are actually quite different. For the donkey card I used a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece of cardstock for the base and then added a 2 3/4 X 5 1/2 piece (scored at 1 1/4 on the 5 1/2 side) and then layered to the bottom front and covered the small folded section with a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock. That added piece makes the barn door.
For this Ice Cream card, I began with a 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 piece of cardstock and scored it at 4 1/4. I then used my Paper Trimmer to cut down the scored line 2 1/2. I turned the paper and cut across the front panel. This cuts off the top section of the front panel. I used the cut off section and cut it down to 2 X 3 1/2 for the backing of the ice cream layer. Two cards that look the same, but are created very differently. Each method would work perfectly for the two cards.
Here is a view of the card open.
Here are all of the measurements for today’s card.
- Base card of Blackberry Bliss is cut 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
- Cut down the scored line 2 1/2 and then across the front panel. This cuts away the top right section 2 1/2 X 4 1/4. Cut this section to 2 X 3 1/2 for the ice cream layer
- Inside White layer is 4 X 5 1/4
- Front bottom flap White layer is 2 3/4 X 4
- Front bottom flap DSP layer is 2 5/8 X 3 7/8
- Ice Cream White layer is 1 7/8 X 3 3/8
Thank you for visiting today! I believe most everyone loves ice cream and think this is such a fun card to make as well. I hope you will give it a try.
