Its that time again! Fancy Fold Friday Time – and now we’re getting complex!
This week its the super cute Twist Turn Card!
I love this card, it make such a great birthday card, and is the perfect size to hold a gift card. Actually, while we’re on that – I love giving gift cards as gifts – who doesn’t love the gift of shopping?! lol, ok, but sometimes gift cards are really handy gifts (thinking here of any gamers in your life, I don’t know about you but I think £40 is an expensive gift, but I don’t mind contributing!) So, we give James’ younger brother gift cards, but trying to find a way to package them in a way that’s not really boring is a bit of a challenge. When I gave him a Twist Turn card for his birthday this year, I got a ‘ooooh, cool!’ a great compliment from a 13 year old I do believe! So, I haven’t included a way of attaching your gift card into the card, but that’s really because I use the Stampin’ Up! 2-way glue pen – if you use this adhesive when its wet (and blue) its permanent, but leave it to dry (and turn clear) it becomes re-positionable – and great for holding a gift card!
Ok, so, to the card! The card base (Hello Honey, if you were wondering!), is cut to 8 1/4″ by 5 1/4″, score it on the long side at 2 5/8″ and 3 1/2″, and on the short side at 2 5/8″. Then, you need to make two diagonal score lines. Orientate the cardstock with the short side at the top, with the two score lines going horizontally near the bottom, draw a score line from the bottom score line at the edge of the cardstock, to the middle of the next score line, repeat on both sides – giving you an arrow pointing away from you. Fold on all the score lines.
The folds should be burnished well, of the card wont stand up well. The DSP used here is from the Moonlight DSP stack (LOVE!), and the stamps are from Everything Eleanor, and Something to Say, punched out uisng the 1″ circle punch, scallop circle punch, and Modern Label punch.
Let me know if you want a video tutorial for this (or anything other card)
