Hi Stampers. Welcome to our Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop on Fun Folds. Today I’m sharing an arrow fun fold card with you. I have two examples to show you photos of and then a Video Tutorial to show you how it’s done. (It’s so much easier to explain the arrow fun fold card in a video!)
It may not look like it, but the card base of my arrow fun fold card is a standard 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Finding the 1/2 way point across the bottom (2-3/4″) and up the sides (2-1/8″), I scored from the bottom point to the midway point on both sides. Then, I scored from the bottom point to the 4-1/4″ score line on each size. It’s then folded in and back out in a z fold on each side.
The seashells, from Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, are stamped in Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo and Sahara Sand. I was using up the last of my Sand & Sea DSP (retiring at the end of the month) and Seaside Spray CS (just retired).
The layer of DSP and the layer of Basic White CS are both 3-3/4″ x 5″. They are both cut from the middle of the long side up to the point on the top left and right. For the Sand & Sea DSP the middle portion is adhered to the outside of the card, while the outside pieces are adhered to the inside of the card. I only used the middle of the Basic White layer and adhered it in the middle inside of the card. The two side pieces I saved for scraps.
Here is another arrow fun fold card using a different piece of the Sand & Sea DSP.
This time for my focal point I used the Double Oval Punch instead of the seashells. (I’ve never thought of using it vertical instead of horizontal, but it fit the sentiment perfect that way!).
Inside this card, I stamped a sentiment (from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set) is stamped in Seaside Spray ink. (Wow, I’m sure going to miss this color now that it’s retired!). Don’t forget to pop down to the list below and follow along on our hop, there are many more fun fold cards waiting to inspire you!
