The good thing with sharing a fun fold project each Friday is that it’s making me make fun fold cards I’ve wanted to but never got round to. Today’s Double Point card is one I can now cross off my list. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to make one.
I’m in need of masculine cards at the moment for all the work birthday cards and this stamp set (A Good Man) is my ‘go to’ for masculine cards. I’ve teamed it up with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) which has thankfully carried over from last years catalogue. This card gets it’s name from the two pieces of DSP which have been folded into a point as you will see in the next photo. The stamped image and mat are adhered only at the top to create a flap which reveals the Basic White panel.
This sentiment is from one of my favourite sets in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue – the stamp set is call Biggest Wish and can be found on page 63. It has 5 different words that come in two different font sizes and styles which gives you the option to mix and match especially for ‘Happy Birthday’. I’ve chosen the solid bold font for this card as I thought it was more appropriate for guys and it also fills up the space.
I’m making the most of my Basic Border dies to create my clouds – check out my previous post on creating a ‘cloud’ template and also how to create your ‘ground’ template. My man has been coloured in with Stampin Blends’ – Ivory for the skin, Light Soft Suede for his shorts, Light Night of Navy for his t-shirt, Dark Soft Suede for his hat and the chair is Light Mossy Meadow.
I decided to put my card front onto a base so that it can stand up on it’s own – you can just make your card using the card front and adhere another piece of Basic White to the back of the mat to write your message. I used Gray Granite for my card base with Merry Merlot for the mat. My sponging was a bit heavy in one part on the front so to cover it up I stamped the sentiment on Gray Granite then die cut it using the ‘label’ die from the Beautiful Trees die – I’ve used this a number of times for sentiments as it’s a great length. So there are no mistakes in crafting just opportunities for embellishments.
Well that’s it for now. Until next time …
