Hi Artzy friends-
Today I am sharing a card using a cute image from Dare 2B Artzy on a fun, new-to-me, card fold.
I learned how to make this type of card from my friend Kathy. I did a little searching to try to figure out what this fold is called. All I came up with was “pull-out card.” I’m not certain that this is correct, since there are several other types of cards also called pull-out cards. So if you happen to have another name for this card fold, please leave me a comment! The inner portion of this card is similar to a Z-fold card, so maybe I’ll call it a “pull-out Z-fold card!”
The image on this card is from the Stinkin’ Happy stamp set. The dies that cut the images in this set, Skunk die, also cut the images in the Feeling Stinky stamp set, which has similar images, but different sentiments to mix and match with your skunks.
To create the front of this card I used a rectangle die to cut a window into my A2 card base (medium blue.) I created a frame using paper from the Autumn Oasis collection.
I created the inner portion of the card with white card stock, cut slightly smaller than my A2 card, and folded in a Z shape. I stamped the message inside and adhered it in my blue card base.
I then created a green and navy blue base layer for my image and positioned it so that it would peek through the frame I cut into my card front, and added a sentiment strip.
This is what the completed card looks like, opened up, with the focal image “pulled out.”
I think this card will be sent to my son for his October birthday, so if you see him, please don’t tell him!
I love learning and trying new and different fun folds for my cards! Do you?
