First, a word from MFT:
In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we're all making cards featuring Fun Folds! Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!
I used the newly released Just the Ticket Die-namics and stamp set, and the Hearts a Plenty Die-namics die. I chose some rich-colored patterned paper from MME, Lost and Found.
The square on top opens up to reveal another message inside.
Then the middle panel opens up to reveal yet another message.
Here is the amazing new Just the Ticket Die-namics and stamp set. It is SO fun to stamp with.
Here is the step-by-step:
- Black CS - 5 1/4 X 5 1/4
- Patterned Paper - 5 1/8 X 5 1/8
- Patterned Paper - 3 X 3 1/2
- (2) Black strips - 6 1/4 X 1, scored at 1
Put adhesive on the inside of the card stock strip as shown.
Adhere to the bottom of the black card stock as shown, then add adhesive to the mid section of the straps as shown.
- Black card stock - 4 1/4 X 4 1/4
- Patterned Paper - 4 1/8 X 4 1/8
- Black card stock - 3 1/4 X 6 1/2, scored at 3 1/4
- Patterned Paper for front - 3 1/8 X 3 1/8
- Die-cut decorations of choice, I used Hearts a Plenty Die-namics
- Stamp decorative accent of choice. I used Just the Ticket Die-namics and stamp set
Finish "mini card" inside and out as shown. The finished size of this card is 3 1/4" square.
Here is a shot of the inside of the mini card.
Add dimensionals to the back of the mini card and adhere to the front of the card.
Decorate inside of the card as shown.
Attach entire piece to a card base using dimensionals. Be sure to use plenty so you don't have any sinking parts on your card.
Now that it is all assembled, add some Basic Grey Magnets if desired to help keep both flaps closed. Here is the top flap.
Here is the middle flap, opened.
And here is the finished card again. I think I'll dub it the Double Flap Fold. :) If you make one, I'd love to see your finished product. Come back and post a link, and I'd appreciate you linking to my tutorial. Thanks!
Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon! :)
