Hi and welcome to the second blog hop of 2018. This month’s theme was picked by the lovely Helzie Lou and she picked ‘fancy fold’. You have probably seen that I have been making quite a few twist and fold pop up cards so I wanted to make something a bit different this time.
I don’t know what this particular style of fold is called but I have seen a lot of people placing tea light candles in the middle, the plastic ones, not the real ones! So I guess like a ‘lantern style’ type of card. I used the Coffee Café photopolymer bundle and the Sure do Love You stamp set as the main focus of this card. I haven’t used the Coffee Café bundle in a while so thought I’d bring it out for this project.
As I was in the mood for making fancy fold cards I decided to make a ‘bench fold’ style card. I have made this style card in the past. I remember it was for my dad’s birthday last year so it was a very ‘masculine’ card.
This time I decided to use the gorgeous Petal Palette bundle. I wasn’t to keen on this bundle in the beginning but I saw all the lovely projects that were being made with this set and well, I just had to get it! It’ s such a lovely set and I know I will be using it quiet a lot in the near future.
This time I kept the card simple by making it monochrome but adding a bit of colour to it; I chose Bermuda Bay.
I hope you have enjoyed these two projects today, if you click on the next button below, you will see a project by the lovely Sam Roberts who is also part of this hop.
Happy hoping! 🙂
