Good morning crafty friends. I was browsing (OK so I lost several hours!) on Pinterest for fancy fold cards for my card class last month when I came across this Fancy Flap Card tutorial. I thought this was such a simple addition to a standard card to make a fancy fold. Sadly I also had cause to create a sympathy card for a dear Demonstrator friend and wanted to make something a bit special for her. I combined the two and came up with this lovely gentle card creation.
I used the soon to retire Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Papers (items are selling fast on the retiring list. Order quickly before they are gone!) with a Pear Pizzazz card base layered with Very Vanilla and Wisteria Wonder.
The card base is a standard half A4 (14.8cm x 21cm). I cut the flap at 14cm x 12.5cm (the score line was at 2cm to create the hinge to attach to the back of the cardbase). I created the triangle by marking the flap at 7.4cm on three sides and cutting the triangular flaps off. I used my Square Framelits to create the window.
The bird image is from a retired stamp set called Elements of Style. The stamp is no longer available, however, you can still use the stamp brush set through My Digital Studio. If you colour your image and size it within the programme. You can then print on Very Vanilla and cut with your Framelits or Trimmer.
