Arrow fun fold cards...

 These arrow fun fold cards really were fun (and quick!) to make, and I love how you can feature both sides of double-sided DSP (I have a LOT of it!).

If you want to see a video tutorial on how to make these, just watch Dawn's (from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts blog) here.

For this card, I used single-sided DSP from an old paper pad (5" X 7", I think). It has some glitter on it, so is really pretty IRL. My die-cut label was stamped and popped up on foam squares. I added a few glittery enamel dots to tie into the glitter in the paper pattern.

After adhering my two triangles of DSP to the inside, I stamped a sentiment there, too.

This card was made with an ivory card base. Instead of die-cutting a label I used a really old, heavy-duty tag shape. It was actually white, but I have a little cube of ivory ink which I swiped over it to achieve the ivory color. Then I stamped my sentiment and added a knotted ribbon and a few pink gems.

In this picture you can better see the thickness of this tag. I won a selection of these tag shapes years ago and still haven't used them all.

For the inside I used the reverse side of my DSP and added a stamped sentiment.

We are back from our trip to the Northwest (Oregon and Washington). Luckily, the weather was very temperate (highs of 70s and 80s) when we were there. I have a couple of pictures to share, but I'll do that in a future post, as I haven't even gotten them off my camera yet!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Thanks for this. I'm going to try your fun fold technique.

That is a fun fold to make. I especially like the second one you showed because of the papers. I've only done two of those. The first one I accidentally cut off one of the "wings" but was able to attach it afterward and it looked OK. I'll have to give that a try again.

You got me on "special fun fold" - off to watch the video. Love both of these cards - very unique and I agree works great with double sided DP.

Ooh what fab fancy fold, it shows off your pretty DSP beautifully!
