Technique Tuesday – A Fabulous Fold!

It is Tuesday again and so I’m sharing a fabulous technique with you!!!

This week it is this Fabulous Fold with Designer Series Paper!

Combined Flip Card

I love how this card creates such a WOW response and it uses both sides of our fabulous Designer Series Paper! Now I don’t have to worry about holding a piece back because “surely there is a better project for this great piece of Designer Series Paper.” Or am I the only one who thinks that when I see a piece with 2 great sides??? The other great thing about this project is you can get 2 cards out of one 12 x 12 piece with a 1 inch strip left over for other projects!! And don’t forget you can stock up on Designer Series Paper this month (July 2013) with our Buy 3 Get 1 Free Special! Only 1 more day so order today!!!

Supplies Needed: Designer Series Paper and the Simply Scored Scoring Tool

You will need a piece of 12” x 5-1/2” piece of Designer Series Paper, score at 2”, 4”, 8”, and 10” using your Simply Scored Scoring Tool or Score Blade on your Paper Trimmer or just a Bone folder and straight edge. Fold on those score lines making mountains on either side of the center. Along the 5-1/2” side, put a little mark at 2-3/4” with a pencil. Then cut from the 4” score diagonal to that 2-3/4” mark! Do that on both sides. You will then flip those pieces over and layer them on the bottom of the mountain and adhere to the card. You can then decorate the inside with a piece of Whisper White cardstock which measures 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″. On the outside flap I adhered (only half way so it would hang over the other half) the Labels Collection Framelit cut-out decorated with the Birthday Cake from the Embellished Events Stamp Set.

Coming soon….tips on how to use Designer Series Paper scraps like that 1 inch strip left over from this project!!!

Happy Stampin’
