Fun Fold Friday…Collar Fold

IMG_1136

This is the card I am sharing this week at our monthly card club.  My friend Margie named our group C3…Creative Card Club. She is so clever!  I always look forward to getting together with these ladies and making cards. We have a lot of fun!

This card could be used for so many different occasions. I love this sentiment from Suite Sayings. I started with a mint macaron card base cut at 4 1/2 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  I adhered a layer of crumb cake measuring 5 1/4 x 2.  The Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  I marked the center at 2 5/8″ then measured and cut in 1 1/2″ and folded it back to look like a collar.  Our Designer Series Paper is double sided so you get to see the design on the back.  How cool is that!  I’m a visual person so I’ve included lots of photos for you.

 

I put a Stampin Dimensional under each fold and adhered the DSP to the card base.

I stamped the sentiment using Night of Navy ink.  To decorate, I cut the flowers and stem using The Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, and Botanical Builder Framelits.  The Precision Base Plate works great with detailed framelits and makes it so easy to have nice clean  cuts. I used the Die Brush to easily remove the pieces from the dies.  Having the right tools makes life simple!

I just love the flower die in this framelits set! You get 14 different dies in the set!  Today’s card uses just 3 of the dies.  I added a dimensional to the back of the flower to hold the leaf in place and pop it up on the card.  I used a glue dot to attach the flower center then added a pearl. And we’re done!

  3. I’m keeping this as a possible card for a party I’m having. (I do this about 1-2 times a year only. I can’t get my act together.) I think it is interesting enough for them, not to much prep for me and it looks great. See it is a win-win card.
