StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #006 Painted Harvest Fancy Fold
This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a theme… Now, I don’t really know what I was doing when I set this challenge. I also managed to complete forget about it, so when I was planning on Saturday afternoon and I suddenly realised that I needed to make a Fancy Fold card for this week’s challenge even I panicked! But, I turned to an old friend, and I think it turned out ok!
I do LOVE a good fancy fold. I have a heap of Fancy Fold video tutorials over on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out.
This is a Double Diamond fold card. They are super simple to put together…. the trick is all in the scoring! I have made these a couple of times now, and you can find the video tutorial for it HERE. This version uses Crushed Curry card stock for the base, with layers of Early Espresso card stock and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.
To create the perfect layers I used the Layering Squares Framelits dies.
Card base – Crushed Curry Card Stock – 4 x 10″ (10 x 25 cm)
Score on the long side at; 2, 4, 6 and 8″ (5, 10, 15 and 20 cm)
Score on the short side at; 2″ (5 cm)
Rotate the card stock back so that the long side is at the top, and then make two marks along the horizontal score line at 3 and 7″ ( 7.5 and 17.5 cm)
The biggest issue when it comes to sending Fancy Fold card is of course the envelope! Stampin’ Up! have this covered with the Envelope Punch Board… Fully coordinating, perfectly sized envelopes in flash!
Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper : 7-7/8 x 7-7/8″ (I tend to stick to imperial measurements with the Envelope Punch Board, just feels easier!)
Punch and Score using the Envelope Punch Board at 3-3/8″ and then follow the score lines to punch and score on each side.
