Artfully Folded

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   #FabulousFriday   Today's adorable card was made by Christine Kurpiel from Reinholds, Pennsylvania. Christine used products from the Follow Your Art Suite on pages 52 through 54 of the annual catalog. And Christine made this card fabulous by using a fun fold!

She started with a standard sheet of Whisper White Card Stock scored it in half lengthwise at 4-1/4" and turned it a quarter turn to score it in half again at 5-1/2". Then she cut the card stock in half, diagonally. She then had two mirror-image pieces that she could use for two cards! How clever is that?!

Christine decorated the inside of the card by stamping images from the "It Starts with Art" and the "Crafting Forever" stamp sets in Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, and Coastal Cabana. She stamped a sentiment from the "Crafting Forever" set in Pacific Point Ink onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch. She sponged the edges with Crushed Curry Ink and adhered this to the inside of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. She also cut a cut button shape from Crushed Curry Card Stock using the coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies.

On the outside of the card, Christine added a Crushed Curry Card Stock panel that she embossed with the Button Button Embossing Folder and some more Arts & Crafts die-cut button elements cut from Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral Card Stock. She adhered a piece of Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the card. She stamped a sentiment from the "It Starts with Art" set in Pacific Point Ink directly onto the DSP.

For a finishing touch, she stamped the ribbon spool from the "It Starts with Art" set in Pacific Point onto Whisper White and cut it out with the matching Arts & Crafts Die.

This card and its fun fold are fabulously fun!
