The inspiration for this card came from my friend Marisa. She knows how I love to make fun fold cards and shared how to make this pleated fold. (She is a Fabulous Friend!)
I used Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, and Whisper White card stock to layer my card. I made the pleated fold in Sweet Sugarplum using the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack. I LOVE the Stampin’ Up DSP Stacks…the prints are double sided, great quality, and coordinate perfectly with our card stock. It makes it easy to match colors together to make a special card for someone.
To make the pleated fold you need to start with at piece of 10 x 5 DSP. Score at 1, 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 3, 4, 4 1/2, 5 1/2, 6, 7, 7 1/2, 8 1/2, 9. Then mark both short sides at 2 and 3 inches and cut from that point to the center score lines.
Next you want to fold on the score lines back and forth. Add tear and tape on the back to keep it together and attach it to your card layer.
Attach the Whisper White layer to the Rich Razzleberry card stock and adhere it to the Sweet Sugarplum card base. I stamped the banner and sentiment using Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry inks and the Banners For You Stamp Set. I cut it out with the matching Bunch of Banners Framelits. You can purchase the stamp set and framelits together as a bundle and save 10%. There are so many different banners and sentiments to choose from in this set that you will use it again and again.
I love to decorate my envelope to match and here I used the same DSP on the back flap.
I hope you have a Fabulous Friend that you can make this card to send. I am sure it will put a smile on their face to know that you were thinking of them.
