Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by my blog today! Today I am featuring a card I made for a card swap I do monthly with some people on Facebook and our theme this month was fun fold; therefore the possibilities were endless! I chose to use my Seaside View stamp set as I hadn't used it yet, and well in the crazy of 2020, we probably all need to take time for ourselves!
I chose to do a simple watercolor for my image, using watercolor paper and my coastal cabana and crumb cake inks to watercolor a beach and ocean scene. I just used my ink pads with ink pressed in the lid, and used my water painters with water. Next I stamped my images and sentiment, once dry in Bermuda Bay ink.
For the card itself, it is a called a Corner Tuck fold card that I found on YouTube from Stamptastic Designs about a year ago and it is now one of my go-to fun folds! The base is cut at 4 1/4" x 11", then cut to 8", and scored at 5 1/2". Don't throw that extra piece away as it makes the perfect mat for your focal image as seen above. That piece would be 3" x 4 1/4", and therefore your watercolor paper piece would be 2 3/4" x 4".
You will need a piece of DSP cut at 2 1/4" x 4" for flap of card base. And then a 2" x 2" piece that you cut diagonally in half and can make 2 cards with that piece! You will also need a piece of WW or VV cardstock for the inside layer cut at 4" x 5 1/4".
At this point you have to decide how you want to your card to open, vertical or horizontal. Put the triangle DSP glued in correct corner for however you want your card to open. Only glue two sides, not middle section or you won't be able to tuck your card!
Layer the 2 1/4" x 4" pice of DSP on flap! Decorate your mat layer and focal image of your choice! When adhering to your flap piece, only adhere adhesive or dimensionals on left portion so you don't glue your card shut! Embellish the inside and outside and your card is complete!
