Fancy fold

July Class by Post – Pocket card

I just love this style of card so much.  It's another quick and easy one, but always gets a "Wow!" Start with half a sheet of A4 cardstock cut in half lengthways, then fold in half.  Score along one side to create a flap that folds down.  Decorate with strips of Rainbow glimmer paper (I stuck them on to a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock first for contrast.)  Then tie some Metallic-edged ribbon around the whole card, creating a pocket.  Finish off with a nice bow, some sequins, and of course a sentiment. To [...]

June Class by Post – Locked Gatefold Card

This card was inspired by a design by the wonderfully-talented Amanda Charlesworth (see the original on her blog here).  The front panel slides to lock the side gatefold panels in a really clever way. I used Misty Moonlight card as the base, and coordinating DSP along with the contrasting colour Magenta Madness. Whisper White card is used for the slider mechanism, and I've stamped the sentiment from Many Mates in Misty Moonlight ink, with some decoration using the In Color enamel dots and a bit of Misty Moonlight ribbon to finish.

June Class by Post – Joy Fold Card

I love the fancy fold for this card!  It's so easy to do, but looks so effective.  I've used Just Jade for the main card base, and Bumblebee for the front flap, and then decorated it with Flowers for Every Season DSP.  The sentiment on the front is from the new Many Mates stamp set (which is fast becoming my go-to set for sentiments) stamped in Just Jade ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and punched out with the Timeless Label punch,  The card was then finished off with Just Jade ribbon and some In Color enamel dots.

CASE challenge 11 – magic slider

Week 11 is yet another fancy fold card, and it's a golden oldie!  I remember making magic slider cards for my second ever Convention back in 2010.  It's been great to dust off this fancy fold and put a fresh look on it.  I was delighted when Becki chose Becky aka Scrappy Stamper (read more here) as our CASE inspiration this week. I used Call Me Clover for the card base and coordinating ribbon, and Whisper White and Window Sheets for the mechanism.  The stamp set was Nothing Sweeter, stamped in Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch for the star, [...]
