It’s Tic Tac Toe Thursday and that means it’s time for another challenge! This week’s board was designed by Rosanne and it has fun elements!
I created Tic Tac Toe going down the left side and across the middle. Anytime there’s a choice to create a fun fold I’m in! The dutch door fun fold is one I haven’t done in a long time. Here’s my card.
I had originally intended to use the Glorious Gingham 6×6 Designer Series Paper for this card; however, the Inked Botanicals DSP was on my desk so I went with that. The card just evolved from there. I used some gingham ribbon to add the gingham element and it worked out great. You won’t find the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder in the catalog but it is still available to purchase. It is one of the Online Exclusives. (*Make sure you check out all the online exclusives…. New items were added this month!) Here’s a closer look at the embossing.
To make this fun fold start with a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 cardstock and score it at 5 1/2. Don’t fold along the score line just yet as you will want to cut first. Lay your paper in the paper trimmer at the halfway mark, 2 1/8″. Cut from the end in to the score line then rotate the paper and cut up to the cut line. You are removing the top portion of your card front.
I stamped the wreath on Very Vanilla cardstock with Lost Lagoon and cut it out with the coordinating dies. I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut the largest square from Very Vanilla and layered it with lost lagoon. Adhere to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals just along the bottom half. Here’s a look at the inside of this card.
The Very Vanilla cardstock and Designer Series Paper measure 2 x 5 1/4. The sentiment is stamped in Calypso Coral. The ends are punched using Banners Pick A Punch and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals in the center. There’s plenty of room to add a handwritten message and sign below.

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is a Dutch Door Design. It is so much fun to make and uses very little supplies.
To make this fun fold start with a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cardstock and score it at 4 1/4. Don’t fold along the score line just yet as you will want to cut first. Lay your paper in the paper trimmer at the halfway mark, 2 3/4″. Cut from the end in to the score line then rotate the paper and cut up to the cut line. You are removing the top portion of your card front.
I used the piece I removed to cut out the Star Blast Edgelits Die (retiring). I stamped a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cardstock using the Birthday Blast Stamp Set (retiring) and Flirty Flamingo ink. I attached this to the inside of my card. Next I adhered the star blast die cut to the front of my card making sure to line it up over my stamped stars. I cut a piece of 2 1/2 x 4 Flirty Flamingo DSP from the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (retiring) and adhered that to my card front on top of the die. I stamped my banner on a piece of 1 1/4 x 4 whisper white then punched the end with the Triple Banner Punch and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The only thing left to do was decorate the envelope to match.
Stamp Set: Birthday Blast(142866) Ink: Flirty Flamingo Paper: Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White, 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack Tools & Accessories: Star Blast Edgelits Dies (142763), Triple Banner Punch (138292), Stampin’ Dimensionals
You could easily use this card for graduation, anniversary, retirement, good grades, etc. in addition to birthday like I did. I love this stamp set and dies and am sad to see it retiring next month. It is fun and versatile. You could cut out the Large Number dies to put on the front to use for a graduation card. The Stamp Set and Dies are still available. The dies are only available while supplies last. Click HERE and HERE to see more fun projects I did with this stamp set and die. *The die is on sale for 30% off. Reg. $20/Sale $14.
Have a Delightful Day!
