Ink. Stamp. Share. February Monthly Blog Hop Fancy Fold Cards

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. February Monthly Blog Hop as we showcase wonderful Fancy Fold cards to help inspire you. I hope you will take the time to hop along and visit the amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are participating in our blog hop as they share their ideas and projects to help spark your creative spirit.
Fancy Fold cards are a wonderful way to make the people you care about feel extra special. For my Fancy Fold card, I chose to create a Gate Fold card and I stepped it up by using the pretty Flowers For Every Season 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #152486) combined with Gold Foil and Gold Embossing for an elegant touch. I am not normally a yellow person, but I just love this gorgeous designer series paper and wanted it to be the showcase for this card.

This pretty Gate Fold card is simple to create and fits inside a regular medium sized envelope. The Bumblebee designer series paper really pops against the Basic White cardstock and I love how the Gold Foil frames the sentiment label. The Gold Embossing for the sentiment label and on the inside layer of the card adds a touch of elegance to the card. I used the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and I added the floral image from the Jar Of Flowers stamp set to the sentiment label and the inside of the card to coordinate with the designer series paper. The used a piece of the Bumblebee ribbon to keep the card closed and tied a bow next to the sentiment label as a decorative touch. This pretty Spring themed card would work for a variety of occasions.
