Fancy Fold Friday – Thinlit edition…..

Ok, So I thought I had finished Fancy Fold Friday (I’m planning on bringing it back soon, I just haven’t got round to making any Fancy Fold cards recently!), and then I found this on my desk.

I know that this really is cheating, but people are always so impressed with these cards, and they just look so complicated to make, but really they are so easy, and its all down to a die!

Stampin' Up! UK Circle Thinlit Festival of Trees

This card is created using the Circle  Card Thinlit die. Stampin’ Up! have 3 of these ‘flip card’ creating dies at the moment, this circle one, a label one, and a great snowflake one! Each die comes with a number of other dies to create a great card. These dies are wonderful! Trying to made a ‘flip card’ by hand is a right pain! This die, not only cuts the card to the right size, but cuts the flip shape AND creates the score lines! and all I had to do was run it through my Big Shot!

To create this card I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to the slightly bigger than the Circle Card Thinlit die, and ran it though my Big Shot. I also grabbed the scallop circle die from the same die set and a piece of Old Olive cardstock, and ran that through the Big Shot too!

I couldnt make one of these cards without using my favourite Festival of Trees stamp set, this time stamped in Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Real Red. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set, stamped in Real Red, and cut into a cute little banner.

The tricky bit of this card is cutting that DSP! The paper I have used here is from Santa and Co. (that one with the crazy dancing Santas!). To ensure that the DSP fits the card, I used the Circle Card Thinlit die again, but this time cut the DSP rather than cardstock. Then cut along the score lines to give me two pieces; one for the front and the other for the inside! Then its just a case of adding Snail adhesive and sticking it all together!

Over the next few weeks I will be revisiting some of my previous Fancy Fold cards, and adding videos! Like my Facebook page or Subscribe to my YouTube to stay up to date and get my latest projects straight away.
