For today’s Pals Fun Fold Blog Hop I have a Twisted Card to share with you. Twisted is an odd name for a card but is very appropriate in this instance.
And here is the unfolded card to give you a better idea of the Twist.
This type of Fun Fold has been around for a while. And I have wanted to make it, but the size was too large. All of the versions I had seen were 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 so required a special envelope. Keeping it simple and working with what we have is my preference. So I fiddled with the measurements and this one will fit inside a regular A2 envelope.
Hopefully my directions in the PDF are understandable. Although I will say the most difficult part is making sure the DSP is cut in the direction you want. It took me two tries to get that correct. And there are videos available for the larger size. The directions would be the same with the exception of the height of the card base.

Both of the sentiments used are from the Celebrate With Tags stamp set. For the front, I stamped the sentiment and then cut it apart to fit on the circle section of the tag. It can work by either cutting straight with a paper trimmer or as I did and just winging it with paper snips! Personally I like the bit of angle to the Let’s and You.
Two different die sets were used for this fun card. The one I love is the Designer Tags Dies. It includes the tag on the front of the card. The little detail at the top plus the stitched edging adds more than you would expect. And the second die is the Layering Circles Dies for the white and Hues of Happiness circles on the tag. If you happen to still have circle punches, they would work also. The white circle is exactly the width of the tag for reference.
Thank you for visiting and please follow along to the other Fun Folds in the Hop.
