Stampin’ Up Pretty Prints Fancy Fold

Stampin’ Up Pretty Prints Fancy Fold

Hello Everyone – an interesting card today with the Stampin’ Up Pretty Prints Fancy Fold idea.

Last week I had my Pretty Prints class. For my Advanced class I always do a fancy fold. I try different ones and then choose the one for the class. I was playing with an idea where instead of making a pocket, you leave the card open and the half flap folds down. It made for an interesting fancy fold.

Love it when the paper and die cuts do all the work on a card.  The Stampin' Up Pretty Prints Fancy Fold was an idea that I played with for the fold.

I love pairing new products with ones that are not part of that suite. For today’s idea I used the Pretty Prints pattern paper with the Eden dies for the decorative edge.

I love the detail of the edge die in the die set and knew it would be the perfect idea for the card. It adds just the touch of color the card needs to break up all the white space.

Since this is a fancy fold down card I used some of the beautiful paper and the feather stamps – love that stamp – in the coordinating Eden’s Garden stamp set to add a decorative top to the card. I used the same stamp to do the envelope.

I love the feather looking stamp in the Eden's Garden stamp set.  Paired with the right pattern paper and you have a great card.  The Stampin' Up Pretty Prints Fancy Fold is a perfect example of blending paper and images that are not in the same suite.

Fancy folds are one of my favorite kind of cards to make. I like doing the simple ones as well as the more elaborate ones. This idea uses pattern paper for a quick and easy idea. This is basically the same card but instead of folding down it folds out.

Curious how I made this card? Here are all the details
