Ringed with Nature Poppy Parade Fun Fold Card

Friends, today I'm starting a holiday Fun Folds series, hooray! Hopefully these cards will give you ideas for your holiday crafting this fall.

All the cards feature the Ringed with Nature Stamp Set and Stylish Shapes Dies. I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post.

Here's my first card:

To make this card, I started by stamping a poinsettia onto a scrap of Basic White Cardstock in Poppy Parade Ink. I used Shaded Spruce Ink to add the centre, then to stamp a sentiment at the top of a 3 1/4" square of Basic White Cardstock.

I then die cut:
  • a small Basic White Cardstock circle with Stylish Shapes Dies
  • 3 sprigs of greenery from Shaded Spruce Cardstock using Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder (dies)

Next, I cut the pieces for the card:

  • 4 1/4" x 11" card base from Poppy Parade Cardstock
  • 2 1/4" x 4" piece for pocket from Poppy Parade Cardstock
  • two 7/8" x 3 7/8" strips of Brights 6" x 6" DSP in Lemon Lime Twist for interior panels
  • two 1 1/4" x 3 7/8" strips of Brights 6" x 6" DSP in Lemon Lime Twist for exterior panels
  • one 1 3/4" x 3 1/4" strip of Brights 6" x 6" DSP in Lemon Lime Twist for pocket
  • one 1 1/4" x 9" strip of Brights 6" x 6" DSP in Lemon Lime Twist for band 
  • four 1" x 3 7/8" strips of Brights 6" x 6" DSP in Poppy Parade - two for interior panels at edges of card and two for exterior panels
  • two 1 1/4" x 3 7/8" strips of Brights 6" x 6" DSP in Poppy Parade for interior panels closest to middle of card
I placed the card base lengthwise on my scoring tool and scored at 1 1/8", 2 1/8", 3 1/2", 7 1/2", 8 7/8", and 9 7/8". On 3 sides of the Poppy Parade pocket piece, I scored 1/4".

I then folded on all lines and adhered the pieces to the exterior of the card as shown, matching up the sizes of the paper strips with the panels. (Tip: arrange all paper strips on exterior and interior to be sure where they fit, before adhering.)

I adhered the pieces to the interior of the card as shown, adding the pocket in the middle. I also tucked the sentiment piece into the pocket.

I cut out the poinsettia and layered it onto the Basic White Circle with the greenery die cuts. I closed the card, folding the flaps in so that the card formed a square (see photo at top of post). 

Then I wrapped the Lemon Lime Twist band somewhat loosely around the card and adhered the pieces of the band together with Tear & Tape. I added the circle with the poinsettia.
