Doilies Elegant Fancy Fold w/Tutorial

Hi Everyone, I hope you’ve been having a wonderful week!

For today’s project I wanted to share an Elegant Fancy Fold card with you.


I chose to create this fun fold with lots of layers using Cheery Lynn’s Circle Doily stacker set.  This worked right in with our challenge theme this week!

Here is a photo of how it looks when open:


And here’s how you can create this fold:

1.  Cut your cardstock 7″ x 11 ¾ ”
2.  With the 11 ¾ ” side at the top of your Scor-Pal score lines at the 3 ¼, 5, 6 ¾ and 8 ½ inch marks
3.  To make the curved sides, take a 6 ½ inch circle cut in half and fussy cut the base card stock just a little bigger.
4.  Cut the large Doily 2 more times and cut 1 in half to place on the sides.
5.  Cut a smaller doily for the center of the card and vertical strips to decorate the center, if desired.

Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

B129 – Cherry Blossom
B147 – Olive Branches
B164 – Lace Corner Deco D
B181 – Build a Flower # 1
B188 – Embellishment #2
DL164 – Doily Stacker Circles 1, 2, 3
DL236 – Waltzing Matilda Tiny Doily
SF-1 – Leaf
XL-6 – Circle – Inverted Scallop LG Stackers Nesting Dies

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Doilies.  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!
