I’ve been participating in a weekly mystery stamping group and each week we learn a new fun fold. This card features a fun fold that I learned a few months ago stamping with this group, featuring the Harvest Meadow Suite of products. It’s not really a traditional “fun fold” but boy is it gorgeous–and a great way to use up scraps of designer series paper (DSP)!
The “fold” part create the chevron pattern using the DSP. Cut 5 strips of DSP each measuring 1″ x 2.5″. Fold each corner of the strips. THREE of the strips fold by taking the bottom corner to the opposite side on the RIGHT, turn the strip around and fold the same way. TWO of the strips fold by taking the bottom corner and folding to the LEFT. So your strips look like this:
Decorate your card front as you like, then you’re going to adhere these strips in a chevron style to the front of the card. Here’s an image of these strips laid out in a chevron pattern:
When you glue them, the ends are going to meet up, and it will fit across a layer measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ – perfect for an A2 sized-card!
Here’s a similar card made vertically:
Can’t wait to see what you do with this layout–I bet it would make some beautiful holiday cards too. Use up your DSP!!
