Today I am joining the Fun Fold Blog Hop of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. You all know that Fun Folds are my favorite thing. Well today I have found a new twist to an old fold. I am calling it a Pinwheel Tucked Fold. It stars the Irresistible Blooms products.
I love this fun look on the front of the card. This Fun Fold I saw on Karen Titus’s page. It is really simple and can be used as a single layer card with this Fun part as the inside once opened. I decided to add it to a regular top fold card. Here are open views.
The Fun Fold is cerated from a piece of 6X6 DSP. I used the Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper. (Tip: it is included in the DSP Sale even though it is an Online Exclusive. ) All you need to do is score at 1 1/2″ on all four sides. Fold and burnish the score lines. Then cut off each of the corners leaving a square in the center with 4 flaps. Place your paper in the orientation you want your pattern. Beginning with the flap at the top, fold the top right corner down flush with the score line. Turn your paper and do all four sides. To finish, fold down each flap where the folded edge is laying on the flat of the adjacent flap. When you get to the last flap just tuck it in like you would on a cardboard box.
Stamp Sets and Colors
The stamp sets I used are the Irresistible Blooms and the Beautiful Balloons. I chose to stamp on the strip of DSP at the bottom front of the card. It did not look finished when I stamped only on the Basic White layer. The colors are Daffodil Delight and Petal Pink. With two soft dolors the Memento Tuxedo Black really pops. Although I did add the two main colors with the balloon and the confetti swirls. To finish the card I scattered a few of my new favorite embellishments. They are the Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequins.
- Petal Pink card base is 4 1/4 X 11
- Basic White layer is 4 X 5 1/4 with same size for inside layer
- Petal Pink square is 3 1/4 X 3 1/4
- DSP is 6X6
- inside of fun fold is Basic White at 2 3/4 X 2 3/4
- DSP strips for front and inside are each 3 3/4 X 1
