Hello my crafty friends

I wanted to share with you a beautiful card today that I made for my lovely friend Linda, Tomorrow is a big birthday for Linda, and I wanted to make something special,  fear not Linda has received and opened her card, and loved it.

This fun fold was inspired by my lovely friend and team member Emma Goddard and you can find the instructions and measurements HERE on her blog. Emma is a very talented stampin up Artisan team member, and is very inspiring too. I just had to make one of these fun folds I hope I have done Emma justice. PLEASE NOTE THIS CARD DOES NOT FOLD FLAT, IT LAYS FLAT!

This post is photo heavy so that you get the gist of the fold mechanism. And the fab thing is it just lays flat into your card.   I have use the Free as a Bird Stamp Set. Its a beautiful stamp set, and I am enjoying playing with it, I have made several projects using it and I have fallen in love with it. You can now purchase this set through my Online Stampin Up Store just click on the product links at the end of this post.

I first stamped the card blank, and extra strips for the fun fold using versamark ink and the leaves from the stamp set, I stamped these randomly all over, this is a clear ink and has many uses and this technique is just pure stamping nothing else and it takes on the colour underneath making it daring looking like its stamped in the same colour ink as the card stock!

I then stamped all the images from the same set in Memento Black Ink, and coloured using stampin blends, and then fussy cut them all.  I scrunched up the leaves and flowers to add dimension and make them look more life like.

The sentiment is from Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch.

I hope you have enjoyed this fun fold project as much as I did making it.
