Picture Perfect Fancy Fold Card – Pop Out Swing

By | March 16, 2018

Hi there

Here’s my final fancy fold card for this suite.  This card style is called a Pop Out Swing Card

This card looks harder to make than it is.  From the card base I cut out a square using the largest square framelit.  I then embossed just the front of the card with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.  Punch out a tab out using the Circle Tab punch, fold it in half and adhered it to the mat then adhere the stamped image which has been cut out using the 2nd biggest square framelit.  I used the ‘sprinkles’ image and stamped it in VersaMark and added clear embossing powder.  The ‘Celebrate’ is from the Celebrate You Thinlits (a Sale-A-Bration item which is carrying over to the new Annual Catalogue out 1 June) and cut from a scrap of the Picture Perfect DSP.

Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock (6″ x 13.8cm – mixed measurements are often the only way to go!) and score it at 2″ and 4″.  Stamp your sentiment or image and fold the card stock in a M – mountain, V – valley formation.

Adhere your card mat (Basic Black – 10cm x 14.8cm) to the card base then adhere just the right hand panel of the Whisper White to the mat.  Fold the Whisper White on top of itself and close the card base.  Apply adhesive to the left hand side of the matted image and adhere it to the folded Whisper White so that it fits inside the square cut out.

This is what it looks like from a ‘top’ view.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these fancy fold cards.  There are so many cool fancy fold cards techniques so give them a try.

Tomorrow I’ll share my last card samples from this suite.  It’s the card that I taught at Stamp Camp as my ‘make and take’ from my presentation.

Until then …
