On Wednesday, September 16, I shared in my YouTube Live how to take the same folded piece of 5-1/4″ x 12″ designer paper and create five different card folds.
I didn’t have finished samples of four of those five cards at the time. But I’ve completed them now, and I’m excited to show them to you!
Here is the one that opens like a traditional card. I used the Healing Hugs Stamp Set like I had for one of the cards I shared Wednesday. Refer to that post if you wish to shop for products I used so you can recreate this card. The only extra product I added was the pack of Gold Foil Sheets. And that product is listed and linked to my online store at the bottom of this post.
The outside sentiment piece measures 1-7/8″ x 2-1/2″ with a 2-1/8″ x 2-3/4″ Gold Foil Layer underneath. The inside sentiment piece measures 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ with a 2-3/4″ x 4″ Gold Foil Layer underneath. The ribbon measures 19″.
These other three are created using the supplies listed at the bottom of this post. They are all Christmas cards featuring the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set.
This one is the double-pocket card. I actually DID end up using Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the sides even though in my video I mention that you can just use the ribbon to hold it shut. Nah…I changed my mind. I wanted a little more stability.
The larger insert measures 3-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ with a 3-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ Whisper White layer on top. The smaller insert is 2-5/8″ x 3-3/4″ with a 2-1/2″ x 3-5/8″ Whisper White layer on top. The ribbon measures 19″ and as I shared in the video is colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends Marker.
This one is the is the card that has a first and then a second opening (sort of like a 1-page book ?).
The front has a 1/4″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Gold Foil.
The 1-7/8″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White piece has a floral image from the designer paper cut out and added to it.
The second white layer is 2-7/8″ x 4-1/4″.
And this last card is the z-fold card.
The wider ribbon is colored with a Dark Soft Suede Blends Marker. The vertical piece measures 6″ and the ends are tucked in between the folded designer paper. The bow is from a 8″ piece of ribbon. The smaller two bows are each made from 4″ pieces of ribbon.
The largest die-cut white layer is 2-5/8″ wide, the second largest is just under 2-3/8″ wide, and the smallest is 2″ wide. These are all die-cut with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.
FYI…This Christmastime is Here Designer Paper is hard to find in the online store. And it’s not in any of the catalogs. It was offered last year as an online “while supplies last” only special offer item. So be sure to click on the link below which will bring you right to it. Or do a search for “Christmastime” with a capital C or for 152154 which is its order number. But yes, currently it is not under the category of Patterned Paper or Specialty Paper.
My boys keep growing! What? LOL When I first started blogging in 2013, they seemed like babies. They won’t let me call them my babies anymore. My goodness, yes. They are young men. Nick is now in 9th grade – a freshman in high school and just days away from turning 15. Luke is an 8th grader and now 13-1/2. They are ready for this pandemic to be done (as are all of us). But they let me take a first week of school photo before they had to head back inside to start their distant learning.
I had so much fun finishing up these fun fold cards. I hope they gave you some creative inspiration! Which one was your favorite of all the folds?
