Easy Fun Fold with the Cottage Rose Bundle

My friend Jean sent me a really pretty card with a fold I hadn't seen before.  I wanted to give it a try.  Jean's card used the Happiness Abounds Bundle with the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.  I'll show Jean's card at the end of the post.  I decided that I would try the Cottage Rose Bundle with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper.  Here's the card.

The triangle of designer paper is actually a square folded in half diagonally.  Cut 4 x 4.

For the Crumb Cake card stock cut it to 5 1/4 x 8.  Score at 4.  Fold the Crumb Cake like a card.  Glue half of the folded designer paper behind the card.  The rest of the designer paper will fold over the closed card.  There is a tiny corner that will stick out beyond the closed card.  Clip that off even with the card.

Here is a picture of the card with the flap open.  Go ahead and close the flap.  Cut a piece of Early Espresso card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue the back of the card down to the base.  This will cover the back of the designer paper.  With the flap open the actual card will now open to the left instead of the right.

Here is the card opened all the way.  The saying is from the Cottage Rose stamp set.  I got mine crooked the first time.  I just stamped it again on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso.  I cut it out with the Stylish Shapes dies and glued it down.  The leaf stem was only stamped on the espresso pad about half way.  I didn't want it to stick out below the flower.  The flower was stamped on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso.  I ended up just putting a drop or two of the White Craft inker on a block and using a Blender Pen.  You'll need lots of layers of the ink.  Fussy cut the flower and glue inside the card.

Close the card.  We'll work on the outside.  In order for the card to close the Abigail Rose designer paper must slip under the flowers on the front of the card.

The Cottage Flowers dies have two stems that are outlines of flowers, a larger one and a smaller one.  Add some of the Adhesive Sheets to a piece of Early Espresso card. Turn over the paper and cut out the two flowers.  Remove the backing and turn the flowers into stickers.  Glue as seen on the card front.

Stamp the largest flower stamp from Cottage Rose onto Crumb Cake.  Color the flower just as we did for the flower on the inside.  Cut this out using the Cottage Flowers dies.

Here is the trick.  Add the cut out with dimensionals.  They must be placed so that the triangle of designer paper can slip under without getting caught on the dimensionals.

The saying on the front is from Cottage Rose stamped in Early Espresso.

Embellish with some of the new Heart Pearls.  They are just precious!

That's it!  Here is a picture with the card that Jean made and my card.  I'm sure that Jean was inspired by someone but I don't know who.  I can just tell you that Jean inspired me.  Thanks!  And thank you for joining me today.  I hope everything made sense to you.  Ask me if you have any questions.
