Fun Fold with Tags

I love fun fold cards. This month the Challenge Your Stash group at Split coast Stampers is to make a fun fold with the color red.

In making this card, I followed a tutorial and video by Connie Stewart: https://simplysimplestamping.com/how-to-make-2-beautiful-greeting-cards-custom-ribbon-accents/

The challenge called for the color red and a fun fold. I used Real Red cardstock by Stampin Up for the cardbase. Inks used are Gina K Designs Red Hot and Kraft as well as Pear Pizzazz by Stampin Up. I used a Scalloped Tag Builder punch for the tags. The stamp set used is called Floral Essence. I enjoyed stamping and creating with Connie.

Double Dutch Fold Card

I have been seeing Double Dutch Fold cards in several places recently and wanted to give it a try. I used a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers along with a blog post and You Tube videos.

Details: SU Blessed Easter for tulip image, colored with Spectrum Noir blender markers. The ovals were cut with Gina K Designs/Thermoweb stitched oval dies along with one Spellbinders Nestability Oval die (the pink one). The cardstock is SU pink, retired. I used a Crafter’s Companion Sparkle pen to give the tulips a bit of sparkle.

The inside is stamp is Joy Clair Easter Greetings. The white cardstock is Crafter’s Companion, cut with a The Stamps of Life Stitched Rectangle die. I used Gina K Designs ink in colors Blue Lagoon, Bubblegum Pink, and Moonlit Fog. The black ink used is Memento Tuxedo Black. The patterned paper is Echo Park Easter Wishes.
