Flap Fold with He's the Man Designer Series Paper and More!
November 23, 2022
Today's card has a flap fold. It's super easy to make the fold. I hope you'll like it. Here's the card.
Start with a base of Pumpkin Pie that is cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. That's the size of a regular card.
The He's the Man Designer Series Paper is our masculine paper. It does make the card rather dark, but I still think that it's really cute, too. Cut a piece that is 4 x 5 1/4. Cut another piece that is 4 x 4 in another pattern.
Fold the square diagonally. Glue half of the square to the back of the larger piece on the right side. The part of the square sticking out will fold back over the side to the front of the card. The corners of the square will extend just a little beyond the top and bottom of the rectangle. Trim that little part away. Now glue the front panel to the base of the card.
The back part of the designer paper will show. I decided that that design did not enhance my card. I cut another 4 x 4 square and cut it on the diagonal. Glue that piece to the back of the diagonal so that it shows when the flap is opened. Of course this part would be optional if you like the back of the DSP.
To decorate the card, use the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper and the Rustic Pumpkins dies. The designer paper had two sizes of the pumpkin pie check. I chose to have the center of the pumpkin in a larger plaid. Cut the center and 2 of the side pieces for the pumpkin. Glue these together to make the pumpkin. Cut the vine pieces in Parakeet Party cardstock. There are three designs for the vines. I cut an extra of one of them. I put some of the Adhesive Sheets behind the cardstock. When peeled away, the vines become stickers and apply easily. The stem is cut from Soft Suede cardstock. Also cut a leaf from Parakeet Party. The base of the pumpkin is added with dimensionals. Be sure be leave the area on the right without dimensionals be that the flap will fit under it.
The saying is stamped in Early Espresso ink on Basic White. Fussy cut around the saying with Paper Snips.
Embellish with 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds in Pale Papaya. Add a bow of the Black & White Gingham Ribbon. I colored it with a Dark Soft Suede Blend.
Since this card does not open, I put the inside of the card on the back of the card. All is from the Hello Harvest stamp set.
The Hello Harvest stamp set can be purchased with the Rustic Pumpkins dies as a bundle with 10% savings. Products used are listed below and are linked to my online store. Thanks!
