Fun Folds are my favorite type of card.  The card I am sharing today is very easy to do and extremely versatile.  It features the Cottage Rose Suite of products.


Stampin' Up!, Cottage Rose, Abigail Rose DSP, Jackie Beers



This gorgeous rose on the front of the card is the star of the Cottage Rose stamp set.  There are matching dies, but they were not used on this project.  Stamping for this beauty was done using Early Espresso Ink.  And the shading was accomplished by using a Blender Pen to pull the color into the pre shaded areas.  Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends were used on the leaves.



2nd Fold

The inside of the card is stamped using the same Cottage Rose stamp set, just using the smaller rose.  It is also colored in the same manner as the front rose is.  With the dark Early Espresso it is difficult to see how the white is layered.  It is a folded piece of Basic White cardstock that is added as if it were simply a layer.  There are equal margins all the way around.  This makes opening much easier, as well as the placement of the white.



Last Fold

Hopefully it is now clear why this is called a Multi Fold card.  The white opens to the center.  The sentiment and leaves are from the same Cottage Rose stamp set.    How easy is this card?  Pretty and simple are a wonderful combination.

Paper and embellishment

The small strip of the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper is such a beautiful piece.  It was chosen for the softness and that it paired well with the dark of Early Espresso on the card base and the soft of the Soft Succulent for the image layer.  Not adding a sentiment on the front of the card was a bit of a quandary.  The deciding factor was just that it was so very pretty without covering any portion.  Adding the trio of different size Champagne Rhinestones seemed a better fit.
