Accordion fold pocket card - SU



 

Card  recipe:

Grey granite card: 5 3/4” x 11” scored @ 4 ¼”, 5 ½” and 6 ¾” 

use off-cuts  for backing sentiment

Basic White: triangle cut from rectangle 4 x 5 1/2 cut diagonally – use off-cut for stamping

Trusty Tools SAB papers :  1 @ 4” x 5 1/2”, 2 @ 1” x 5 1/3”

cut diagonally –take care to cut the correct way with directional paper. I chose one with a non-directional pattern on the back and used this for the inside card front. see video

DSP – 2 strips 1” x 5 1/2 to cover the accordion fold inside

Fussy-cut tools from DSP

Happy Birthday from Something Fancy stamp-set

Step-by-step instructions to use with video on YT 



 

·        *Fold and burnish all score lines very well

·        *cut the front of the card diagonally from top left to bottom right

·        *use offcut for inside to form pocket front

·        *add DSP to the inside back

·        *make a pocket by glueing the left and bottom edges of the triangle offcut from the base, ensuring all edges match and do not overlap the score line – trim if needed

·        *cut DSP for front and use offcut for inside

·        *add DSP strips to the spine

·        *Place fussy cut tools on the front and lift with dimensionals

·       * make strip sentiment with the trimmer. Raise with dimensional avoiding tools and stick to the front. Trim edges.

·        *add embellishments like screws

·        *add a basic white triangle inside to write on. Adhere fussy-cut tool

·        *place more tools in the pocket. Tack down with glue dots

Show both sides of the DSP with this Gatefold card

Good afternoon everyone,

I have had so much fun playing with all the new items and FREEBIES in my demonstrator pre-order; (this is such a perk of being a demo) because the annual Sale-a-bration event is on NOW until the end of February 2024.

Today's funfold card shows off both sides of the pretty "Flight & Airy" DSPs that come free with a £45 order. Please remember to use the host code for February to get a little freebie as a thank you from me  NMDZ7BBJ. 





Look how pretty the DSPs are 

I started by taking one sheet of single birds and the next sheet and fussy cutting all the images - even the incomplete ones on the edges of the sheets to use on the inside layer of the cards and on the envelope if you wish.

Flight & Airy Double Gatefold card



My card today is a simple fun-fold card called a fold-back gatefold card or double gatefold that lets the DSP speak for itself.  I remembered making a similar card when SAB was on before with the Favoured Flowers DSP and luckily I had kept a sample in my cardbox.
