Well, hello there! It’s been months since I’ve posted on my blog. I might have taken a break from posting, but my brain was still thinking about stamping even if I didn’t have time to do much creating. Another demonstrator posted this and it’s true!
Once you make a few cards, you just want to start stamping and make more! With the new January-April Mini Catalog out and FREE Sale-a-bration items, it’s the best time to get “jumping into stamping!”
This Diagonal Fun Fold card is a great way to start
This card uses a stamp set from the new January-April Mini Catalog called Country Bouquet.….plus a stamp set from the Sale-a-bration Catalog that you can receive for FREE with a $50.00 product order called Adorable Owls.….and a set of Designer Series Papers called Happy Forest Friends that is in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog….
This is a perfect example of how you can mix and match items from all the catalogs to make one Fun Fold Card. The front of the card is cut on the diagonal from the top left to the bottom right. The 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Designer Series paper is cut the same way making for easy layering.
The “mini card” is attached to the inside of the card and flips up allowing the front triangle of the card to fold inside.
The front of the card is the most fun to stamp and color. I stamped and colored the image and then fussy cut the cute owl so I could place it on dimensionals. I decided to make this card a Valentine Card (that is coming up soon!) so I stamped two sets of hearts from the Country Bouquet Stamp set – one set in Calypso Coral and one set in Tahitian Tide. I used one big and one small heart of this card that I also used Dimensionals to attach to the front of the “mini card”
To see how I made this card, you can check out the video at the end of this post. But first gather these supplies so you’ll be ready to craft along:
- Country Bouquet Stamp Set and County Bouquet Punch
- Adorable Owls Stamp Set
