#craftycupcakesbloghop, Fancy Fold card, Book fold card


I absolutely love making fancy fold card. They are usually so easy but look like they have taken you hours. A couple of years ago Lea Denton of The Crafty Spark sent me a book fold card. I loved it and have wanted to make one ever since, just not got round to doing until now.

Sweet Soiree SDSP, Marina Mist, Powder Pink


When I started to make this card I hadn't really got a plan in mind, apart from the book fold inside. So I sat down with my DSP's and looked for inspiration. I decided on the Sweet Soiree Speciality Designer Series Paper. Then I choose two coordinating cardstock colours, Marina Mist and Powder Pink. I used the card Lea sent me to get the measurements for the cutting and scoring lines for the book fold part of the card.

Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set for a Fancy Fold card


I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set for the sentiment on the front and both sentiments inside the card. I really like the fonts and I thought the sentiment 'Today we celebrate wonderful brilliant fabulous you!' was perfect for a special birthday card. Not sure if you can see on the photos but I dipped the edges of the Whisper White cardstock in my Versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

Today we celebrate wonderful brilliant fabulous you! Birthday card

  11. Jillian,

    I absolutely love 'Fun Fold' cards. This particular 'Fun Fold' I have not attempted as yet, I shall be having a go at it in the near future I am sure. Do you have a PDF or the instructions of how to put this card together Jillian. If so I would be extremely grateful. :O)
