Good morning good morning and happy Friday! Hope your SHORT week has been great and that you’re ready for the weekend!
I also hope you’ve already ordered one (or more!) of the new Christmas Gifting Kit! I sure did!
My card today is NOT for Christmas – instead it celebrates my favorite season – FALL! Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice bread, pumpkin spice fudge, pumpkin spice cookies….you get the picture! For this card, I used the Gathered Wheat stamp set and the bundled Wheat Dies. And some of the wunnermus Gingham Cottage DSP. And I used all that Fall goodness to make an uber-cool side-step fun fold card. Take a look-see:
Being that it’s a fun fold, I thought I’d play along with the Creative Creases challenge!
I think it’s pretty much spot on for The Paper Players theme challenge, too!
I saw this fun fold done earlier this week – my friend and teammate Carol Buckalew did a great video to show how to do it. I’d been a little askeered of this fold – but…once Carol showed me how to do it – I was hooked! And it really IS easy – so…I hope you’ll make one , too!
I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8″ piece of Crushed Curry cardstock that, using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored along the long side at 3″, 6″ and 7″. I folded the scored lines as a mountain (3″), valley (6″) and mountain (7″). This is the main card base.
Then I scored a 3″ x 6″ piece of Crushed Curry at 4 1/4″ – and folded it as a mountain. That’s the side-step panel.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped one of the Gathered Wheat sentiments in Early Espresso. I also stamped the wheat image in Crushed Curry. Then I matted the panel on Early Espresso and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the inside of the main card base. I added a Rustic Metallic Adhesive-backed Dot. Tip: I recommend that you do this inside panel first – BEFORE you assemble the rest of the card. LOTS easier! 🙂
I matted a piece of Gingham Cottage DSP on Early Espresso and used Liquid Glue to adhere the matted panel to the front of the main card base. I matted a narrow strip of the DSP on Early Espresso and adhered it to the smallest front panel with Liquid Glue.
I set the side-step panel into place to do a “dry fit” and then, using it as a guide, stamped a second sentiment from Gathered Wheat in Early Espresso on the front of the main card base – splitting the difference between the side-step panel and the right side of the card base. Over the top, I stamped the splatter image in Crushed Curry.
I matted another piece of Gingham Cottage DSP on an Early Espresso mat and adhered it to the front of the side-step panel.
To decorate the panel, I used two Leaf Label die cuts that I adhered with Liquid Glue.
Then I cut six Crushed Curry Wheat tops using the dies from the Wheat Die set.
I embossed a piece of Kraft 6″ x 6″ Paper in the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder and then used the leaf dies from the Aspen Tree die set to cut out 2 large and 2 small leaves from the embossed paper.
Using Liquid Glue in the middles of the leaves – I adhered them to the side-step panel. I let them spill over the edge of the panel – but NOT past the top or sides of the main card base.
I tucked the die cut wheat tops in using Liquid Glue. Then I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
In the corner of the narrow front panel, I stamped the little wheat image from Gathered Wheat in Crushed Curry.
I used Liquid Glue on the bottom 1″ of the side-step panel and adhered it to the narrow bottom strip – aligning the bottoms. Then I closed the card base and used more Liquid Glue to adhere the smaller portion of the panel to the back of the main card base – thus creating the side-step panel. You can see how to do it in the video I did – the link is down below!
Then I added more Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed dots and the card front was done.
On another piece of Gingham Cottage DSP panel, I stamped the large wheat image from Gathered Wheat in Crushed Curry ink.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and then onto the back of the main card base and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the large Gathered Wheat image in Crushed Curry on the front…
…and more Gingham Cottage DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love this side-step fold – it stands up SO perfectly! Your recipient will be able to display it easily – and show off your creative prowess. The Fall theme is made easy with the Gathered Wheat stamp set and bundled Wheat Dies. Gingham Cottage DSP has many different plaid and gingham designs in holiday colors to choose from!
I hope you like!
