I don’t know if this type of fold has a name, so I am going to call it a “four corner designer series paper fold. If you know the name, please share it with me, I would love to know.
I made a couple of these cards, it was so much fun creating them, and I love how it turned out, hope you do too.
I started my project with an 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock. I cut a second layer of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock at 4″ X 4-1/4″. I used the Whale of a Time 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper into four (4) squares cut at 2-1/2″ X 1-7/8″.
I first created a template before I began folding over my Whale of a Time DSP piece. I cut a 2-1/2″ X 1-7/8″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock and measured on the bottom left corner in at 1/2″ and placed a tiny pencil mark. Then on the right side from the top to the bottom, I measured down to 1-1/8″ and placed another little pencil mark. I used my ruler to connect both lines, then used my Paper Snips to cut across as shown in the photo below.
I added my Whale of a Time DSP piece as shown in the photo above to my 4″ X 4-1/2″ layer of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock. Once I had the DSP pieces secured with my NEW Stampin’ Seal+ Adhesive, I added a Stampin’ Dimensional to the folded flap piece of DSP to add some dimension.
I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the center of my card layer and tied a simple know. I adhered the Blackberry Bliss layer over top of my Calypso Coral card base using my Stampin’ Seal+ Adhesive.
I stamped my sentiment from the Whale Done Stamp Set on a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with my Calypso Coral Classic Ink and then used the second from the smallest square Stitched Shapes Die to cut it out. I adhered it to the center of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the whale image on a 2″ X 2-1/2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock using some Pacific Point and Just Jade Classic Ink, creating a slight Ombre effect. I punched the whale using the coordinating Whale Builder Punch and added it to my card front with a bit of Stampin’ Seal+ and some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the tail. I used my Black Stampin’ Write Marker to the eye of the whale to make it pop a bit. I sprinkled a few of the Whale of a Time Sequins with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the front of my card.
To finish off the inside of my project, I added a piece of 4″X 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the cut fishes with Just Jade Classic Ink and some bubbles with some Pacific Point Classic Ink.
