The Crafty Collaborations Team is comprised of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we participate in several collaborative projects, including Blog Hops, like this one, to inspire all of us in our passion for crafting. Our goal is to create, share, and inspire every crafter to keep our creative energy flowing.
Today our blog hop theme is “Share it Sunday!” and we share whatever we’ve been working on recently. I’ll be sharing a Standing Vertical Fold that we completed in a recent Zoom Class. This card was cased pretty closely from Susan Campfield. You can see her video showcasing this fold here.
This fold is perfect for showcasing the beautiful Meandering Meadows patterned paper pack. It has a large scene on the front and then several other pieces hidden behind the front section. Here’s a photo of the card partially opened.
The card opens further to reveal two more strips of paper framing the section where you could stamp a sentiment and write your message.
The third piece of the card base has two more pieces of the scene.
To have all pieces of the scene match up…or come close to matching you would need two 6″ x 6″ pieces. I did not figure out how you could match your pattern with one piece of 7 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of 12″ x 12″ patterned paper. I’ll leave that up to you!
instructions for standing vertical fun fold
- Refer to the photos above to help you create this card.
- On a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Fresh Freesia card stock, adhere a 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of patterned paper to each edge. These pieces will only be partially seen so are the least important ones to match.
- Cut a piece of Fresh Freesia card stock 8″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 1 1/2″ and 2 3/4″ from each end with the 8″ side at the top. PLEASE note: This is 8″ wide not the usual 8 1/2″.
- Fold and burnish this piece so it meets in the middle.
- To do this, start with the score line closest to the middle and to the left of center. Fold on that score line bringing the left edge toward the center. Then fold back to the left on the 2nd score line of that piece.
- Now repeat for the right hand side. On the score line closest to center, fold that piece toward the center. Then fold the on the visible score line, back to the right.
- You should have
- With two pieces of the same 6″ x 6″ piece of patterned paper, cut a 1 1/4″ piece off the right hand side. Set aside the pieces in order!
- Then cut a 1″ piece off the right and place to the left of the 1 1/4″ piece.
- Cut a second 1″ piece off the left side of same piece of patterned paper. Place to your left.
- Adhere these three pieces of paper on your scored piece of Fresh Freesia as shown in the third photo above.
- Adhere a piece of Basic White cut 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ to the center section.
- Fold that piece into the gatefold position and put glue on the back of the center section. Then adhere to the center of the 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece with the two strips of patterned paper on the edges. The folded piece should fit right in between the patterned paper.
- Adhere a 3″ x 5″ piece of patterned paper cut from the 2nd piece of patterned paper (that matches the first. ) To have the scene match, cut off a 1 1/4″ piece from the right side and save to use on another card. Then cut your 3″ piece and trim the height to 5″.
- Adhere this patterned piece to a Highland Heather mat cut 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″. Adhere both of these pieces to a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Fresh Freesia.
- With the gatefold closed, put adhesive on the left side- the side without patterned paper. Then place your this layered piece so it is centered on the card base. A bit of patterned paper should be visible on both the right and left side.
- Stamp “Hello” in Highland Heather ink on a scrap of Highland Heather. Trim to size and cut a banner in the right hand side. Adhere to the front.
