Hi Stampers. Today, I have a wonderful new (to me) fancy fold technique called the double flap joy fold technique. This card uses the amazing Sailing Home Suite, it is an amazing suite! It makes for wonderful nautical / masculine cards. There are many pieces within the suite that allow you to coordinate effortlessly!
Have you ever wished that the creative process was easier? Stampin’ Up! has developed a suite of products that all coordinate together beautifully and bundled it as one item number, making ordering and paper crafting so much easier!
This Night of Navy card base is 5-1/2″ x 11″, scored at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″. The left and right side of this card base (both sides) are covered with Come Sale Away DSP. On the left side (the larger panel) I used a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece on both sides and on the right (the smaller panel) I used a 2-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece on the top side.
The second part of the card starts with a 7″ x 3″ piece of Night of Navy CS, scored at 3-1/2″. While keeping in mind that the score will be on the right side of the second part of the card, I added a 3-1/4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Come Sail Away DSP to front and back of the top flap. I stamped the sentiment and sailboat in Night of Navy ink onto a 3-1/4″ x 2-3/4″ of Whisper White CS. Next, I stamped the birds in Smoky Slate ink onto this inside layer and then attached it using snail adhesive.
Using approx. 18″ of the Night of Navy / Sahara Sand bakers twine, I wrapped it around the card and tied a bow to the left of the top flap. I attached it to the front of the top flap using mini glue dots. To go over this bakers twine, I stamped the large and small sailboat onto a 3″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Whisper White CS using Night of Navy ink. I sponged Night of Navy ink lightly on the top of this layer (as sky) and sponged Night of Navy heavily at the bottom (to look like water). That was placed on the card front.
A second large sailboat was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS using Night of Navy ink and die cut using the Smooth Sailing Dies. That sailboat was then attached to the stamped Whisper White layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
This fun fold definitely brings me lots of “joy”! 😉 This is a great way to showcase our fabulous Designer Series Papers and how well everything coordinates.
For the interior of the card, I stamped the sentiment, compass and lighthouse onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS and adhered it with snail adhesive.
While this card looks complicated, it’s really not. I encourage you to give it a try! Who would you give this card to?
