Fancy Folds Blog Hop - JAI 74


FANCY FOLDS - JAI 74


Bronwyn Eastley - Funky Fold

This week at Just Add Ink we are holding a Blog Hop featuring cards with fancy folds. Hop around all the Design Team Blogs and decide on a fold that you would like to try and link up your entry to the Just Add Ink site. Of course you will score more 'brownie points' if you leave some comment love along the way! ;)


If you're doing the blog hop in order you would have been gob-smacked by Nikki Spencer's awesome Side Step Card.


For my submission, I chose a Funky Fold (centre step) card which was really easy to make.

Would you believe that I only used DSP (Botanical Gazette), card stock (Early Espresso) and dimensionals? No stamping at all for this one. The fancy fold really gives it the WOW factor!


Side View

(Please be suitably impressed by the fact that I actually did a teeny bit of decorating on the inside of the card too)


I was inspired by a Funky Fold card Laura Lipe made and she has easy to follow instructions/template on her blog which you can view HERE.


You will find the next very fancy fold on the amazingly talented, Kim Badelt's Blog and you can get there by clicking on the button below -


Happy fancy folding,

Goodness you say this card is easy to make but it looks sooooo complex!! This card definitely stands out.

Very cool card. I have a ruler die that may work with this idea. I AM suitably impressed that you decorated the inside. ;) LOL.

Folly said...

Ha ha ha! Yes, I'm very impressed that you decorated inside. It looks so effective, and yet I never do it (another thing to add to my to-do list). No stamping? Wow! Love it.

A work of art for sure Bron! You make it seem so easy and your great use of the DSP and it's images is very inspirational...no stamping, must have been hard to do just that! Love it ♥

Tania Gould said...

No I can't believe there is no stamping on this beauty - and yes, I AM suitably impressed by the inside-touch!!!!

Another fantastic card, what great use of the DSP. I will miss this when it retires, such pretty colours and patterns. It's a great fold too.
