Welcome to the August Stampin Stray Ducklings’ Blog Waddle! This month we are featuring cards created with a fun fold. (If you are one of my Mystery Stampers, please go look at another post – ha ha!) You may have arrived here from Nancy Legate’s blog. Following me is Kim Baker’s blog. Let us know what you think of these fantastic cards!
I created my card using the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (#153520). The card base is Cajun Craze 11″ tall and 4 1/4″ wide, scored at 5 1/2″. The layer is Blushing Bride, 5 1/4″ x 4″. Each piece of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is 2 1/2″ tall x 1 7/8″ wide. I made a template to equally fold back each center corner. The template is 2 1/2″ tall x 1 7/8″ wide. Mark 1 1/8″ down and 1/2″ in and cut diagonally from one mark to the other. Then just turn the template on each piece to fold the centers back. I did not pay attention to how I cut my paper, therefore the patterns do not continue from one piece to the next, but they don’t really have to line up.
The center square is approximately 1 5/8″ x 1 5/8″ cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies (#152323) in Very Vanilla. I added a layer of Gold Foil under the Very Vanilla square. The stamped image is from Autumn Goodness photopolymer stamp set (#153454). I made this an anniversary card, but it can be used for an occasion. It was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder (#109129). I added 3 Gilded Gems (#152478) to complete my card.
