Fun Fold Card with Tropical Escape Designer Paper

Today’s Fun Fold Card was is one of my three September / October Club projects and Free Card Kit Projects. It features the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper and Detailed With Love Stamp Set.

I just love this fun fold card! So far I’ve made this design using three different packs of designer series paper. The first one was created with the Joyous Noel designer series paper (DSP) for a card swap with my fellow Alaska Cruise Achievers, the second is shown here and the third one features the Garden Impressions DSP. There will be links and/or photos of some of these designs ahead.

By the way, if you use all the patterns in a given designer paper pack you end up with three variations of your project design! Fun right?! Here are my three variations using the Tropical Escape designer paper:

Today's card features a super simple Fun Fold Card that can be recreated in almost ANY DSP. Check out my simple folding template created for club members and Free Card Kit recipients!

For this card I’ve used three different sentiments from the Detailed With Love Stamp Set. For the smaller two sentiments I used a 1-3/4″ circle punch and for the larger “Let’s Celebrate” sentiment I used a 2″ circle punch. All the sentiments are popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The ribbons used here are from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. The colors are Shaded Spruce and Petal Pink. I simply tied and “air bow” and attached it with a MiniGlue Dot.
