Flap Fold Card

Today I have a bunch of cards to highlight a great card template called the Flap Fold Card.  I saw this great idea from Julie Davison. Check out her tutorial for some visual directions.thank you flap fold

This card template is really easy to create and is very cute too!                                                Here are a few quick directions if you would like to try it:                                                         -Cut a 4-1/4” x 11” piece of cardstock                                                                                              -Score at 4-1/4” and 8-5/8”                                                                                                              -Punch a 2-1/2” circle in the center of the second score line (put it in as far as it will go)    -Add a 4” x 4” piece of DSP to the flap of the card                                                                        -Use a 2”circle punch, 2-3/8” scallop circle punch, and/or a circle framelit to add the circle embellishment to the card.                                                                                                    -Add a small image with a stampin’ dimensional to tuck the flap under.                       *make sure to put the dimensional only on the bottom part of the image to leave room to tuck under the flap

I used a Night of Navy card base and added a piece of Flowerpot DSP (p.186). I added a piece of Crushed Curry 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon (p.206) to the flap of the card. I used the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle, 2″ Circle, and 1-3/4″ Circle punches (p.220-221) to create the layers for the image. I used the 1-3/8″ Circle and 1-1/4″ Circle punches (p.221) for the smaller raised embellishment that the flap was tucked under. I used the Bloom with Hope hostess stamp set (p.240) for the flower image and the Something to Say stamp set (p.104) for the sentiments and smaller flower image. I colored the images with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities (p.212).thank you flap fold openedthank you flap fold inside

This shows how the card opens and looks on the inside.

Baby flap foldThis is another version of this Flap Fold Card Template. I used a Whisper White card base and a layer of Lullaby DSP (p.187). I added a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine (p.179) on the flap. Next, I added 2-1/2″ Circle, 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle, and 1-3/4″ Circle punches (p.220-221) for the image, and embossed the booties in white embossing powder from the Something for Baby stamp set (p.74). The smaller raised embellishment is from the Tag Talk stamp set (p.66). I embossed it with white embossing powder on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. I punched it out and then stamped it a second time in Crisp Cantaloupe on White cardstock, and punched out the center, to add to the center of the embossed piece with a stampin’ dimensional.

This circle embellishment JUST fits inside the circle opening, so that is slightly different from the previous card. baby flap fold insideI just love the way the card opens and has all those extra special little touches to give it lots of visual interest.

iowa flap foldThis card is a tribute to the Hawkeyes! I used a Crushed Curry card base and layers in Black cardstock. I used the Little Letters Thinlits (p.228) to cut out the letters and embossed the Black layer with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder (p.226). I used the Circle Framelits (p.231) to cut the circles for the image layers. The image and little banner is from the Simply Sports stamp set (p.92) and the raised banner for the flap closer is from the Banner Banter stamp set (p.111).
