There are a lot of pieces to this particular Fun-Fold card. Not to worry-the easy to follow photographic instructions will help you create this card in no time.
Measurements: Rococo Rose Card Stock (CS) card base #1: 4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches; Rococo Rose CS card base #2: 2 3/4 x 10 inches scored at 4 3/4 and 7 1/2 inches; Basic White CS: 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches; Paper Blooms DSP: 2 1/2 x 4 inches, 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Punched out pieces: Daisy Punch: Rococo Rose CS and Petal Pink CS; Medium Daisy Punch: Night of Navy CS; Perennial Flower: Night of Navy CS and the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch: Basic White CS. You will also need about 12 inches of the White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.
Begin by stamping the sentiment “Thinking OF You” in Night Of Navy ink onto the 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS. The 2 1/4 inch length should be on the top and bottom.
Putting It Together
Start by putting together the Rococo Rose CS card base #2. First adhere the 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Paper Blooms DSP to the first panel on the left. Then adhere the sentiment to the last panel on the right. Set aside.
The next step will be to work with Rococo Rose CS card base #1. Begin by adhering the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Paper Blooms DSP to the first panel on the left. Next adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Paper Blooms DSP to the last panel on the right.
In order to see how this will go together, hold the two card bases as shown in the first photo. Start by adhering the left side of the top card base to the card base underneath.
This is how it will look with the card closed. Right now only the left side of the top card base is adhered.
For the next step, open the card, turn the card upside down and rotate it 180 degrees. You will be applying adhesive to the back of the right side of the top card base. The close the card and adhere the two together. In this way, the card will lay flat for mailing.
Here is the aerial view of the card when it has been adhered.
Decorating the Card Front
Begin to put the front of the card together by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the 2 1/4 inch Basic White CS circle to the left side of the front. Tie the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the right side of the top card base. Trim the ends of the ribbon.
In order to give a little dimension to the daisies, use the Bone Folder to gently curve the petals back. Be careful when doing this as I have often torn the petal straight off!
Now cut the Perennial Flower Punch as shown to make some “leaves” for the front of the card.
Start with a Stampin’ Dimensional on the center of the Petal Pink Daisy Punch and adhere it to the center of the Basic White CS Circle Punch. Then use adhesive in the center of the Rococo Rose Daisy Punch and adhere it to the Petal Pink Daisy.
Now use adhesive to adhere the Night Of Navy Daisy Punch and add the “leaves”. I find it easier to place the leaves by using a tweezers.
And now for a little Bling! I just added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of the daisy. Later I realized I could have also used the Wink of Stella on the daisy to make it even more sparkly!
