Flap Fold Card

Try A New Technique Challenge #161

This morning I had a peek at the challenge on Splitcoaststampers and was able to try out the Flap Fold Card this afternoon. I kept it fairly simple with not a lot of layers. I had Liquid Pearls sitting on my shelf just waiting to be used so I tried to pick out the patterned paper and colour scheme with them in mind. I added the Liquid Pearls to the scallops, the top and bottom edge of the card and the centers of a few blossoms.

One thing to take note of: I don't have any magnetic snaps, like the tutorial calls for. (You can view the tutorial HERE.) What I did instead was just adhered the bottom of the scalloped piece only. That way I can lift the top part of the scallops to fit the flap underneath.

The measurements are a bit bigger from the tutorial. The pink paper was cut 11" x 4 1/4". I used the coluzzle to make the rounded flap and then cut the bottom part off to measure at 10 3/4" x 4 1/4". I scored at 4 1/4" and 9".

Here is the inside. Very simple.


Paper: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Basic Black
Patterned Paper: Midnight Rouge by cherryArte
Ink: Black Stazon, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Circle Coluzzle, Circle Punch (Marvy), Scalloped Circle Punches (Marvy), Liquid Pearls, Blender Pen, Sponge Dauber
