Hello stampers and happy Friday. Today I am going to post the first fun fold card in my fancy fold card contest. This card is by Ina Eisen and it features the playful Dino Days stamp set and coordinating Dinoroar paper.
Ina Eisen’s card
Before I show you Ina’s beautiful card I want to tell you just a little bit more about this talented woman. I have found out that she is a hobby demonstrator and her upline is my friend Joanne MacTavish. Turns out that Joanne was my parents’ bank teller at the Royal Bank in Fergus. Joanne is very lucky to have Ina on her team. Before I knew that Ina was a demo, you may have seen that I was trying to recruit her to join my team! I’m looking forward to spending some time with both of them when this COVID situation is over.
There are so many great details in this fun card! Ina used the stitched nested labels dies for the focal point and fussy cut the dinosaurs out of the Dinoroar paper. This paper is on sale right now and available only while supplies last. The “miss you” is from the stamp set Enjoy Life which is also retiring.
Inside View of Dino Days card
Here is the inside of this fun card. Ina used a retired stamp set called No Bones About It.
I almost forgot to give you the measurements for this fun card. The cardstock base is 5 1/2″ by 4 1/4 in a colour that coordinates or contrasts with your paper. Ina used mango melody for this card.
Take a piece of patterned paper 11 3/4 inches and score at 1 3/4″, 4 3/4″ and 7 3/4″. Fold the first part back towards you (mountain fold) then fold a valley fold and then a mountain fold. Just look at the picture below and it will make sense. Adhere the largest part to the card base and decorate as desired.
Ina used the stone embossing folder that was available during saleabration on the white stitched nested label.
Video on my Facebook Page
If you want to see the video of how this card was made you can see it on my business Facebook page. It was supposed to upload to YouTube as well but my camera ran out of space so it couldn’t be saved. Bummer.
I made a few alternative cards using this fun paper, but I only took one picture to share. This day has been totally nuts with every technical glitch imaginable happening. I am crazy squirrel, hear me roar!!
