Center Fold Explosion

Hi everyone and welcome to Wednesday.  I love Wednesday’s mostly because I get to show you some fun projects  for Heartfelt Creations that I hope will inspire you to get creative!

For my project today, I attempted a different fold  that I came up with based on a Diamond Fold card that I did a while back.  I decided to take part of that card and make it the inside center of this card and I really like how it turned out.

Products Used:

HCPC 3608 – Arianna Blooms PreCut Set
HCD 732 – Decorative Flower Pot Die
HCD 745 – Luggage and Tags Die
HCD 747 – Arianna Lace Die
HCD 748 – Arianna Blooms Die
HCDP1 244 – Arianna Blooms Paper Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Pearls and Lace from my Stash, Distressed Ink, Embossing Powder and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting a piece of card stock 12″ x 7″ and score on the long edge at the 4″, 6″ and 8″ marks.  Next, scor from the top of the 4″ mark to the bottom of the 8″ mark and repeat for the other side.  This will form the inside of your card.  To make the outside panels cut 2 – 5″ x 7″ pieces of card stock and attach one to each the front and back of the card.  For the layers, reduce the sizes by 1/2″ at a time on both the top and side.  The flowers were made by stamping, distressing and die cutting the Arianna Blooms flowers and layering them with the Arianna Lace die cuts.  To make the die cuts fit the flowers the way I wanted them to, I cut the die cuts into pieces first before layering them into the flower.  These Lace die cuts are so versatile that I can see a lot of uses for them!

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
