Hello and welcome to today’s card, which kicks off my week of fun fold cards featuring products from Flowers for Every Season Suite! I wanted to change things up a bit and show you some fun fold cards and how you can also use products that carried over to the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog along with this suite! I always like to think of it as “more bang for your buck” when you can expand your creativity and card making! The Flowers for Every Season DSP has several different designs featuring different flowers and since I did not also purchase the Jar of Flowers Bundle (which coordinate with the flowers on the DSP), I looked to see what I already have and could possibly coordinate. Since there are designs with the daisies on the DSP, I thought combining the Daisy Lane stamp set and both daisy punches would be perfect and I will show you my version of the Fun Flap Fold Card!
I chose this design from the Flowers for Every Season 6” x 6” DSP, cutting ¾” off the bottom, and cutting at 3” along the 6” side of the 6” x 5 ¼” piece. You will use the second largest Stitched Nested Labels Die to cut out of one of the DSP strips, the opposite side will be used for the layered flap piece. Tip-I used the die in the middle of the DSP, this way you can use the leftover DSP piece for another card:
The card base is Misty Moonlight cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ¼”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I then cut a 1 ½” strip off the card front flap:
For the flap piece, I used the largest Stitched Nested Labels die to cut out of Bumble Bee cardstock and scored from one corner to the other on one end. Adhere the layered die cut DSP piece on top, positioning more towards the end, rather than evenly in the middle, and score the end again from corner to corner:
For the front flap, you will need:
1. Stamp the large daisy in Bumble Bee ink on Whisper White cardstock three times and cut out with the coordinating Daisy Punch.
2. stamp the medium daisy in Bumble Bee ink on Whisper White cardstock three times and cut out with the coordinating Medium Daisy Punch.
3. Use the single long leaf die from the Sunflowers Dies to cut out three pieces in Just Jade cardstock.
4. Use these two leaves from the Forever Gold Specialty DSP.
Use liquid glue to layer the daisy pieces together and then use the large stylus tip from your Take You Pick tool to score from the center of the daisy to about the middle of the petals and then finish “curling” the daisies with your bone folder along the ends:
For the inside of the card, use a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and stamp the sentiments from the Daisy Lane stamp set, keeping more towards the left side, rather than in the middle, and use liquid glue to adhere the end of the layered Stitched Nested Labels to the backside of the cardstock, keeping it positioned in the middle of the cardstock:
Adhere the 3” x 5 ¼” panel of DSP to the cardstock base and then adhere the inside sentiment piece to the cardstock card base:
Position the daisies and the die cut/laser cut leaves on the flap, then adhere using liquid glue:
This is how the inside will look when the card is opened:
Isn’t this a fun and easy card to make? I just love how using the Daisy Lane stamp set and daisy punches coordinate with this design of the Flowers for Every Season DSP! I originally saw this fun fold card on Pinterest, and decided to change up the measurements for the cardstock card base to give it a little bit more “coverage” over the inside of the card, this way you can still have plenty of room to write your sentiment.
