Hi Everyone, thank you for joining me today for this fun folded fall card. I love all things fall the changes to the colors of the leaves, pumpkins, scarecrows, corn mazes, plaids, warm sweaters and a hot cup of coffee. So grab a cup and lets get started.
Step 1: Cutting and scoring your card base – start with a heavy card base and cut your paper 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, along the 8 1/2 side score at 2″, 3 1/8″, 5 3/8″ and 6 1/2. Your designer paper cut 2 @ 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″, 2 @ 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ (Sides) and 1 @ 2″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel). Next I inked my papers with Vintage Photo Distress ink and set aside. Next fold up your score marks so the front of your panel is folded upwards. Please see picture above and below.
Step 2: Adhere your inked paper strips to your card base.
Step 3: Using the new Pocket Page Fillers 1, use the two smaller rectangles and cut 1 small rectangle from heavy mixed media paper and the medium rectangle to cut the the green plaid rectangle. Next I took my Distress Ink Peeled Paint and smooched it onto my mixed media mat and spritzed it with water, then I took my mixed media paper and dabbed it into my ink smooch. (As per above) After it was dried I added my word sentiment “Hello Fall” .
Step 4: Cut out your scarecrow, pumpkin, leaves and crows out of you choice of cardstock. I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink and assembled as per the picture above.
Step 5: I attached my mixed media paper to my plaid background, I added my pumpkin and pop-dotted the top of my pumpkin, added some leaves and pop-dotted my scarecrow. Last step is speckling the card with heavy body white and brown paint.
Here is a look at the card before going into the envelope.
I hope you enjoyed todays Fun Folded Card, Have a wonder day and happy crafting! >Katie<
