One of the good things about sharing fun fold cards with you each week is that I get to revisit and recreate projects that I haven’t done for years. Todays project isn’t a ‘fun fold’ card as such but has a fun fold element to go on your card and is another great way to use your gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP).
What do you think? – isn’t this a great alternative to highlight your stamped images or as I’ve done create a 3D image with stamped components. The Pansy Petals Suite worked so well for this card – DSP, stamps and dies.
The Folded Paper Frame is easy to make and requires a 4 1/4″ square of DSP. I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make it easier to score the diagonal lines that create the fold back flaps to the frame. These lines are scored at 1″ and 1 1/2″ on all four sides. The inside square that you can stamp or attach your stamped images to is a 2 7/8″ square.
When I started making this card I wasn’t sure what I was going to put ‘inside’ my frame. The answer was already on my desk. I found some stamped and die cut images from a previous project so all I needed was the stem to create my floral arrangement. To soften the background for the image I applied Pacific Point ink with my Blending Brush for a sky effect.
The Folded Paper Frame can be attached to a landscape or portrait card as shown in this blog post.
I hope you give this fun fold frame a go – I’d love to see how you decorate it.
Until next time …
