Peaceful Moments, Stitched So Sweetly, Birthday Card, Arrow Fold Technique, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I had a lot of fun making the Arrow Fold card yesterday that I thought I'd give it one more try before I move on to something else. The more you do this the easier it gets.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. It's folded in half on the long side. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is at the top.

With a pencil, I lightly marked the bottom edge of the front of the card at the halfway mark at 2-3/4". And then I marked the sides at the halfway mark at 2-1/8".  Score the piece from the top fold to the center of the bottom of the front. Then for the next score you keep the bottom center on the scoring line and score to the 2-1/8" mark.  Repeat for the other side.

With the card closed and facing you. Fold the long score lines inward on both sides and fold the shorter score lined outward.  Look here at the photo of the card I posted yesterday to see the inside of the card.  You will need to use your bone folder to make those score lines nice and crisp. And you will also need to glue them down because they won't stay down.  Be sure not to add glue where it's not needed.  Just open and close the folds to see where the glue should go.

My DSP is from the "Flowers for Every Season" 6" x 6" paper stack. I cut it 4" x 5-1/4".  This piece will need to be marked at the bottom half way at 2-5/8". Now you will need to cut from the 2-5/8" to the top corner.  Repeat for the other side.  Try to keep the pieces together. It's easy to get them mixed up. I taped the two smaller pieces to the inside of the card so they were out of the way.  Then I taped the larger piece on the front of the card.

I die cut the Misty Moonlight label piece from the "Stitched So Sweetly" die set.  

The words are from the "Peaceful Moments" set and were stamped on Whisper White card stock using Misty Moonlight ink. Then they were die cut using the second smallest die and I used the second smallest scalloped die on some Bumblebee card stock.  I also punched out a 3/8" circle for the center of the flower (to be made next). I taped all the layers together and set the piece in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.  Be careful where you set the Dimensionals, you want to keep them on the pointed panel, not the side white ones.

I punched out two daises using the "Medium Daisy" punch. I glued them together and then added the Bumblebee circle to the center.  I set it in place on the front of the card using a single Dimensional and the card was done. I didn't stamp any words inside this one, I left it blank.

This is a very fun technique. And I like how this card turned out.

Thank you SO very much for taking the time to have a look today,
