Fresh Fruit Fold

Triple Gate Fold

What is it about strawberries make me smile??  Love this paper!  I am so glad I got an extra pack! Yes, I am a paper and ribbon hoarder-proud of it too!  This was the 2nd card I taught how to make at my Fun Folds Class last Sunday.  Super fun and I saw this on Lyssa Zwolanek’s blog too!

To begin, you’ll need to gather:

·        5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch cardstock (regular size card base) (I used Garden Green)

·         Simple Scored or other scoring tools

·        Patterned paper (Fruit Stand DSP)

·        Stamps, ink, punches, etc, to embellish as desired (Fresh Fruit Stamp set)

Note: you’ll probably want to cut a plain 2 x 5 1/2 inch strip of neutral colored cardstock for the back of the main panel, so you can write your message (not shown). Or you can write on the back!.

Triple Gate fold how to

Score the cardstock base at 2, 3 1/8, 5 3/8, and 6 1/2 inches on the long side.

Fold towards the back on the two inner scores, and towards the front on the two outer scores.

Decorate as desired!  I have 2 new products in the card picture!  Can you find them?

Order your favorite retiring set before they are gone!



Last of my Christmas creations…

Gift Card holder closed

Belive it or not, I still have one gift that has not been delivered!  It’s a gift card so I made this cute folded card to hold it.  I was inspired by Mary Fish’s site for this.  I LOVE the Festival of Prints pack!  It has 48 pieces of paper measuring

4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.  The new Spring Catalog has a new set, Print Poetry!  Great for quick cards!

Here is a view of the inside and the belly band that goes around it.  TIP: when sealing the belly band, make sure your gift card is inside so it will still fit when you slide it off.  I had to re-attach mine.  I used the Ovals Framelits to make a blank area for your recipient.

Stamps: Greetings of the Season

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade

Ink: Cherry Cobbler & Lucky Limeade

Accessories: Framelits Ovals & Apothecary Accents; rhinestones
