I am always looking for ways to make my cards unique… and fold-out cards are fun! Be sure to watch the video to catch the details.
To create this vertical fold-out card, I started with a piece of 4 1/4″ x 11″ cardstock. (I said 4 1/2″ in my video – sorry.) I then folded this in half to create a top-folding card that is 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. I then folded the front of the card at the halfway point – 2 3/4″. That’s it!
I used the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Border Die Set to create a wave at the top of several pieces of vellum and pool cardstock pieces. I adhered them together and added a white heat embossed greeting from the Essentials By Ellen Mermaid’s Tail Stamp Set. I then added the whole piece to the front of the folded card.
I created the mermaid tail by white heat embossing the Essentials By Ellen Mermaid’s Tail image and adding Distress Oxide Inks on top. For shine, I sprayed it with a mix of Ranger Perfect Pearl Perfect Pearls and water. After letting it dry and cutting it out, I tucked the mermaid into some of the waves. I created three cards… each with a different fun sentiment. And note the fun sentiment on the inside, too! (“If you need me, call me on my shell phone.”)
The little water splatters are from the Essentials by Ellen Otter Ware Stamp Set and the gems are from Lucy’s Cards.
Since I had a few scallopy-border scraps from these cards, I decide to put them to use for a quick card featuring the Essentials By Ellen Crafty Lady and Crafty Ladies Say Stamp Sets. These sets are full of crafty images and messages. You must check them out! Can’t wait to make more of these for crafty friends.
