Paper Crafting Blog Hop Tulip Double Flap Card



Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. Our theme this month is flowers. I hope you enjoy all of the wonderful projects!

You’ve just left Krissi’s blog, I always love her cards, don’t you? 

I’m going to begin with the measurements, then I’ll show you how I put it together in this Double Flap Fun Fold which I think is a variation on the Joy Fold Card. This one just gives more opportunity to show off lovely DSP (designer series paper.)

I used Basic White Cardstock for my card base. Notice that this is cut at 5 1/2" x 10" (14.9 cm x 23.7 cm).  After cutting the DSP, I decided to use both the front and back sides. Don't you just love that Stampin' Up! ® DSP is double sided!

I adhered two strips to the insert and adhered this to the cardbase. The right side is a little larger and it folds first with the right side on top. Here is what mine looks like:


My next step was making the small card that folds over - again I used Basic White Cardstock. I added DSP and my stamped sentiment to the inside of the card. This card opens to the right and goes over the flap of the larger card. I adhered another piece of DSP to the outside of the second card and decided a belly band would be a great way to hold this closed.

There are several ways to keep the card closed and I decided on a decorated belly band.

The belly band is wrapped with Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon. The focal point is Mango Melody cardstock cut with a scalloped circle from layering circles dies. I stamped two tulips onto white cardstock and die cut with a smaller circle then added one of the die cut tulips. For bling I used Wink of Stella on the tulip and brass butterflies.

I hope you enjoyed the card and know you'll like the next flower creation by Traci Gardner.
