Today I share with you my very first card I have made in 2018 using the Sweet Little Something stamp set in the Occasions catalogue!
Isn’t it just the cutest?!! You almost want to reach out and touch her!
This is a photopolymer set, so it makes it super easy to line up the 3-step stamping. I have used Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Crumb Cake stamped off!

Welcome to another Art with Heart Team blog hop where we are focusing on fancy folds. You will find loads of creative inspiration tonight, showcasing different folding techniques and projects. Don’t be afraid of trying some Fancy Fold cards; they may look intimidating, but in fact, they are not that difficult to create.
If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Tina Gillespie. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.
Now let’s get started!
For my projects today I am using the Best Birds stamp set with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I love how striking this Designer Paper is too and I knew it had to be a focal point. #cutitnothhoardit
Fancy Fold Card #1
For my first card today, I am sharing a fairly simple fancy fold card, a Double Z Fold.
The card base is Pool Party card = 11⅜” x 5⅛” and score at 2¾” & 5½”. Trim off a 1″ strip from the bottom of the card which will create the double z fold. You just flip that strip over, so the shorter end is on the right as shown. Then you decorate as you like. Here is my colour combination using the coordinating colours in the Designer Paper!
Stamps:Best Birds Inks: Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Soft Suede Card/Paper: Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Whisper White, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP Accessories: Big Shot, Layering Ovals Framelits dies, Magnetic Platform, Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Scrub, Stampin’ Mist, Tombo Multipurpose Glue, Simply Scored, Clear Block Bundle, Dimensionals, Fast Fuse, Tombo Glue, Wink of Stella, Blender Pen, ⅜” Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon
Fancy Fold Card #2
For my second one, I have a more advanced fancy fold card. I am sharing a style that I think is amazing, but I’ve never found it in Australian cardstock sizes, so I created my own A5 Gatefold Shutter card. It took quite a bit of time to figure out all the correct measurements, but I am super happy with the outcome. Now I have mastered it, I can whip them up in no time at all!
When you take off the belly band, the centre diamond opens to reveal a secret message inside!
Kids love this style of card, they think it’s like magic when it opens up. They look difficult to make, but if you follow the instructions, they are actually quite easy.
