InspireINK August Blog Hop: Fancy Fold

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it.  Today I am taking part in the monthly  InspireINK blog hop. This month the theme is Fancy Fold.  I have seen so many people make this card that it seemed perfect for this hop.  I researched back to who I think made it first and have used her measurements. It has turned out bigger than I thought so will be making a smaller version soon.  I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make.

So credit goes to Iced Images






Measurements and Materials

  • Base of card is made using Barmy Blue card stock
    • Centre piece 5 1/2" x 11 1/2"
    • 2 smaller cubes 2 3/4" x 11 1/2"
  • All 3 are scored in the same way
    • Score on the long side @ 2 3/4" - 5 1/2" - 8 1/2" - 11"
  • Mats Night of Nave x 6
    • 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
    • I cut the snowflakes form So Many Snowflake dies from each of these mats to save on card stock
  • DSP mats cut from Snowflake Splendour 
    • 6 cut to mat on the Night of Navy squares
      • 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
    • 6 cut to go inside the cubes
      • 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
      • These mats were inked around the edges using Night of Navy ink
  • Whisper White mats to write your message on x 2
    • 2 1/2" x 5 1/4"
  • Sentiment stamped using Snowman Season
    • Night of Navy ink on Whisper White
    • Snowflakes stamped in Barmy Blue From Snowflake Wishes 
    • Dies cut using the second largest stitched circle die
    • Matted with the Scallop circle die in Night of Navy
  • Sentiment attached with a hinge
    • 1/4" x 1 1/2"
    • Fold in half
    • Apply adhesive to both folded sides
    • Stick on lover section of middle card section, folded edges together
    • Stick sentiment to this
    • Do this before you add the DSP mat - unlike what I did in the video! 
    • See video tutorial for attaching
