Inspire.Create.Challenge #073 | Fancy Fold

Hello! Gosh, I didn’t mean to miss Inspire.Create.Challenge a fortnight ago, but if you saw my Facebook Live last week you’ll know that I might have broken my wrist! As it turns out now, I don’t think it is broken (they didn’t X-ray me at the time), but two weeks in a splint has definitely been worth it because now it’s feel much better.

Anyway, this week’s challenge is Fancy Fold. And once again I sat and stared at the challenge image for ages! I set these challenges, they are all my fault, but when it comes around to actually making something my brain switches off!

But, a fancy fold card I did make! I love this style of card, it’s one I use fairly often for birthdays and special occasions.

Fancy Fold Measurements;

This fun Z fold is so easy to create;

Night of Navy card stock; 14.8 x 21 cm, Scored on the long side at 4.5 and 10.5 cm

Whisper White card stock; 4 x 14.4 cm, 6 x 14.4 cm, and 10 x 14.4cm

Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper; 3.5 x 13.8 cm, 5 x 13.8 cm, and 5 x 13.8 cm

The circles are taken from the Layering Circles dies, and Stitched Shapes dies. I really like that stitched edge, it just adds a nice finishing touch to a boring circle!

The sentiment is in two parts. The stamp is from Well Said, where the die cut letters are part of the same suite as the Designer Series Paper; Playing with Patterns. I love this die set, Playful Alphabet, it’s got some handy duplicate letters too! Personally, I would recommend the new Adhesive sheets with them though, as they can be a bit fiddly to stick down!

I would LOVE it if you would pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog, the Design Team have made some fabulous Fancy Folds to inspire you. Also, you can add your own creations to the blog post there too!
