Ink. Stamp. Share Monthly Blog Hop – Fancy Fold Cards

Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. I’m so glad you have stopped by my blog today. We’ve got lots of fun inspiration with our Fancy Fold theme.

I’ve got a lovely Fancy Fold card to share with you. It’s easy to create and looks great. We’re saying goodbye to Sale-A-Bration today so I gave the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper a grand send off on this card.

As soon as I saw this Fancy Fold on Satomi Wellard’s blog I knew I wanted to recreate it. It’s a variation of a Gatefold Card and so pretty.


A4 Card base – 29.6cm x 21cm
Score at 7cm and 14cm from left and right (on the long side)
DSP 6.6cm x 20.6cm – 6 pieces (4 pieces in 1 design and 2 pieces in a coordinating design)

Once you get all your folds it’s a matter of adding Designer Series Paper as you like to decorate it. The Paper Blooms DSP is a free product which you can earn with a $90 order – but this offer ends today!

To attach the centre image which holds the ‘gates’ together, I added 3 Stampin’ Dimensionals right in the centre Seaside Spray panel (the part not covered by DSP). This allows the folds to tuck in nicely under the circle. The inner circle and leaves were die cut from one of the sheets of DSP which has circles on it (I did tell you I made maximum use of the DSP). I have just got the Pierced Blooms bundle and I’m loving the detail on it.

One thing you do need to pay attention to when adding all the beautiful flowers and leaves, that you only attach it to the circle. I got caught up in decorating and attached it to the flap and realized just in time that this wouldn’t allow the card to open!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this Fancy Fold and give it a try. I’d love to hear how you like it in the comments.

Ten Day Countdown to End of Sale-A-Bration – Day 10

We all love a freebie and Sale-A-Bration is all about that! A never ending supply of free products for every $90 order you place. Spend $180 – get 2. Spend $270 – get 3. There are some products that are free with a $180 order. No matter what you spend, there are loads of options.

The beautiful Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper is a free product with any purchase of $90. I just love the fresh look with the smart Night of Navy accents.

Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper, DSP

The 2 cards I’ve created follow the same sketch. Using different sheets of the paper and combining it with different cardstock colours, it achieves contrasting looks.

Mint Macaron provides a softer card while the Night of Navy card base has a more rich and elegant feel to it. I used the reverse side of the Blushing Bride Metallic ribbon as it tied in really well with this card.

Don’t you just love these cute butterflies? The Butterfly Beauty Dies has this lovely focal element with several butterflies on it. Use is as a whole or cut them apart, as I have done, to create cute add ons for your cards.
