Hello and welcome to the first Fancy Fold Design Team Blog Hop of 2019. Our fancy Fold this month is the V-Fold Pop- Up card. You are currently visiting me, Gina Connor AKA Emerald Kreations from Northern Ireland. The Fancy Fold Team are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world who enjoy making cards with Fancy Folds!
There are many varieties of a V- Fold Pop- Up card so I chose one that would suit the stamp set and punch that I wanted to use. The new Stampin’ Up! Spring/ Summer catalogue went live on the 3rd January and it is full of beautiful new products. I wanted to show you a beautiful new bundle which has a co- ordinating punch which makes it quick and easy! It is called Butterfly Gala. It is so pretty and is part of a suite which includes beautiful 6×6 gingham paper and co-ordinating adhesive backed sequins. The stamp set has sentiments which I think makes it complete.
My colour scheme is Very Vanilla, pool Party, Flirty Flamingo and Gray Granite. I used the new Crackle Paint background stamp on the Very Vanilla top layer. I actually stamped off first on apiece of rough paper and then stamped it again on the Very Vanilla card to give it a more subtle appearance.
The largest butterfly fits perfectly in the V-Fold! To create the V- Fold I measured 11/4 inches from the centre score line on each side. I then scored11/4 inches down from the top on the centre score line. I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to score the lines and used a bone folder to fold them into place and make a crisp score line.
When I was stamping the sentiment in the centre I smudged it a little! It was easily corrected – phew! I stamped the sentiment and then used my oval framelits dies to cut it out and stick over the mistake!
