Pansy Patch Happy Birthday Joy Fold Card. Ink Stamp Share Showcase Blog Hop November 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I'm taking part in the Ink Stamp Share Showcase Blog Hop - there's no theme for this one, we are just sharing projects we have been working on.

I've been playing around with some fancy folds and wanted to show you my Pansy Joy Fold card. This Fold is ridiculously easy and looks fabulous!  


Highland Heather Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 8 7/8", scored at 3"

Mango Melody Card Stock

1pc - 3" x 7 1/2", scored at 3 3/4"

Gorgeous Grape Card Stock

1pc - scrap

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 2 5/8" x 3 7/8"

2pc - 3 1/2" x 2 3/4"


Take the Highland Heather and Mango Melody pieces of  card stock  and fold along the score line. 

Put one of the 3 1/2" x 2 3/4" pieces of basic white to one side.

On the remaining pieces of basic white, stamp the Pansy images all over all the pieces. Here's the way I coloured them:-

Large Solid - Smoky Slate

Larger Detail - Gray Granite

Smaller Detail - Basic Gray 2nd Generation (stamped off once first)

Smallest Detail - Basic Gray

Take the piece of Highland Heather card stock and place it in front of you with the fold to the left. Add the largest stamped panel to the inside, and the second largest to the smaller card front flap you created.

Bring in the Mango Melody card stock and hold that so the fold is on the right. Add the last of the  stamped panels to the front and the plain piece of basic white to the inside. Add this to the centre of the large stamped piece on the inside of the card. Then fold in the small front Flap, then close to last Flap over that.

With Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather ink, stamp one large and two small pansies onto scrap basic white and fussy cut.

Stamp the sentiment from Pansy Patch on a scrap of basic white and cut out using the double oval punch, also cut a scallop oval from Gorgeous Grape card stock. Layer these together and add the the card front, to the right of the mango melody piece - making sure that you can still open that flap fully.

Add the three pansies below, I stuck down the two smaller ones flat and the larger one I added with dimensionals. 

Finally add a rhinestone to the centre of the pansies.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today, please continue through the hop and see what everyone else has been working on this week, Jo is up next, please click on the Next button below to see what she has created today.
