Ink. Stamp. Share. March Monthly Blog Hop Fun Fold

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. March Monthly Blog Hop and this month we have been challenged to share fun fold card designs to help inspire you to get creative. You will be visiting with our talented Design Team Members as they share their projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.
For my fun fold card design, I decided to use up some of my retiring designer series paper. I chose one of the designs from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, which is one of the retiring Host Rewards in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I paired it with the retiring Prize Peony stamp set and coordinating Peony Dies to create this clean and simple card design. For the stamped images, I chose to heat emboss them with Gold embossing powder to add a touch of elegance. The front of the card has a peek-a-boo window which shows the sentiment on the inside layer.

To create this simple fun fold, I started by scoring the 5 1/4" x 12" designer series paper layer at 4" and 8" along the long side and then fold the panels towards the middle so that the front panel is on top. Next I die cut the circle opening from the front panel and added the Flirty Flamingo cardstock frame around the opening. I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder onto the Basic White circle. With the panels closed, I placed the Basic White circle inside the opening and attached it to the inside designer series paper panel. I stamped the Basic White layer with the floral images using Flirty Flamingo Classic ink and opened up the card to attach it to the inside center panel of the card. To decorate the front panel, I heat embossed the flower and two leaves with Gold embossing powder and onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut them out with the coordinating dies. Closing the card up again, I wrapped a piece of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the card and tied a bow on the lower right side of the card to hold it closed. I attached the embossed flower to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals so that it slightly overlapped the opening of the circle and added the two leaves underneath the flower towards the bottom right side. To embellish, I added three of the small Gilded Gems to the sentiment circle and two of the larger size to the top right corner. To complete the card, I attached the Flirty Flamingo card base to the back of the center panel to provide stability and to frame the front panel design. I love how simple this fun fold is to create and how versatile it is as it works for a variety of occasions.
