Hello stampers. Have I told you that I am a bit of a lazy stamper? I really do like a special fold when I am making a card but I don’t like it when they are super complicated. There is one exception to this and that is the twisted pop-up card. I really do love this one and find it is worth the extra time because it is just such a cool card. You can click here to see my post about this fun fold. When people open that card they get such an amazed look on their face that it is totally worth the extra effort. The special fold card that I am sharing with you today is much more simple but also fascinating. It is called a corner flip fold and is quick, easy and fascinating.
How to Make this Fold
I have discovered that this fold is indeed called a corner flip fold. During my Tuesday Facebook live I showed everyone how to do it and you can see that here. My setup was very interesting to say the least. Since I don’t have my Arkon phone mount for videoing another solution had to be found. We actually used a fork lift truck with a piece of sturdy cardboard across the tines with a hole cut out of it for my phone! It worked quite well but I think you will find Dawn Olchefske’s video quite helpful for a closer up look. You can see that one here.
I have to admit that I do find it supremely frustrating to work from another computer. While I am thankful for all the things that I am able to do so far from home, it is time consuming to learn different ways of doing everything. For example, I had a great sketch I wanted to share with how to make this fold but I can’t find a quick and easy way to do it. What I can do is give you another link. Not as much fun or as easy as me putting it right here for you, but now you can share in my pain just a little bit! Check it out here.
Peggy Murwin designed this corner flip fold card for her Holiday Hoopla event in Illinois that I was privileged to speak at two weeks ago. It has been a long time since I made a card using this corner flip fold technique. I thought it would be fun to try it with Nature’s Beauty as well. Necessity is the mother of invention and I had no coastal cabana card stock with me in the Netherlands, so decided to use thick whisper white card stock instead. Take a look at how it turned out:
You can see that for both cards I used the new snowfall accents puff paint. This is a great new product but you do have to be careful as it tends to come out of the bottle quickly. Always do your larger snowy areas first before you do the small snowballs. You activate it with a heat tool, that is what makes it puff up. The background for this card was stamped in bermuda bay stamped off to lighten it with the Crackle background stamp. The snowflakes in the background are from Frosted Foliage. The Merry Christmas is from Snowman Season and was stamped in real red.
I am by nature a curious person, so I would love to hear from you. I value your feedback and am curious where you like to connect with me. What is your favourite platform? Is it my business Facebook page, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest or is it this blog? Going forward it is important for me to know where I should spend the most of my time and energy.
