Project Share Project Blog Hop – Fancy Fold Card

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s Project Share Project blog hop.

Links the other Project Share Project Fancy Folds are below, or use the next button at the bottom of this post!

Gez Carpenter: Nigezza Creates

Heather Forgan: Stamp With Nellie

Jill Chapman: Paper Daisy Crafting

This month’s theme really got me thinking….. Many of you will know I’m not one for anything fancy, but nevertheless, I have managed to make this card!

Measurements (inches):

Whisper White Base card 5-7/8 x 6-1/4 scored on long side at 4-1/8

DSP 5-3/4 x 4 and 2 pieces 5-3/4 x 2

Whisper White Inner card 5-3/8 x 7-1/4 scored on long side at 3-5/8

DSP 3 pieces 5-1/4 x 3-1/2

If you are using the Stitched So Sweetly dies to add panels, you will also need to cut 4 pieces of DSP 3-5/8 x 2-1/2

You can see how to make this card in my video tutorial….

I love how the different designer series papers work together!

The inside portion folds out. Leave a panel blank for your own handwritten message!

The little bit of extra stamping around the main greeting adds interest without adding bulk.

Joy to the World

Hello Everyone,

With just three weeks til Christmas, I thought there may be some last minute cards to make, so here’s something that easy to make either as a one off or as a batch….

In the video tutorial I show just one card being made, but the background could be stamped over a full sheet of card stock and trimmed down to make four card fronts.

I wonder which colour combo you like best?
