Fancy Fold Friday – Zig Zag Fold

Hello! Welcome to the second in my series of ‘fancy fold’ cards!

This week, I’ve made a Zig-Zag fold card, using Real Red and Flashback DSP.

I do love designer series paper – I love patterns, and colour, and really I’m just a stationary geek! (yes, I love staples and paperclips too!), but I really struggle to use DSP on cards! I love using it for scrapbooking, I use masses of 12×12 papers on layouts and in Project Life, but on cards, I get a little stuck!

This card, although it looks complex, is really simple to create. The cardbase is cut at 8 1/4 by 5 3/4, then (and this is the only complicated bit!) you need to line one corner of the cardstock up with the top corner of your papertrimmer, then line the corner diagonally opposite to it up with the 4″ line on your trimmer – this will create the slopping angle to the top of the card. The card is then embellished with the Flashback DSP cut the same as the cardbase, before trimming 1/2″ from the bottom edge, and cut into 2 1/2″ strips.

The card was then completed with three punched flowers, stamped using the Something to Say stamp set, and punched using the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack. The sentiment is only available until the end of October, place an order (or host a party) of over £200, and earn this stamp set for FREE! its so super cute, and has some lovely sentiments for Christmas and Halloween crafting.

See you again next week
