Hello everyone... Helen is here today! I am back with a fun fold card called Bridge Card using the new released stamp set, Gnome Is Where The Heart Is. Check out all the images and sentiments from this adorable set!
I have been looking for some fun fold card ideas and found several tutorial of how to create this bridge card on Pinterest and YouTube. You can simply search using the word Bridge Card :) This video tutorial is one of the tutorials I found, if you would like to check.
My card is 5.5" x 4.25" and fits in a regular A2 envelope when it is fold flat. Here's the steps how I created this card and I used watercolor paper for my card. You can use regular or heavy weight cardstocks, too.
- Cut out the piece of cardstock into 8" x 4.25"
- Cut out out one more into 1.25" x 5.5"
- Score at 1.25", 2.5", 5.5", and 6.75"
- Fold at the score lines (look like in the picture to create the almost gate fold look).
In the video tutorial, she will show you how to create the mats for each side of the panels. But on my card, instead of mats of patterned papers, I created the blue sky background with Broken China Distress Ink using Ink Smooshing Technique. I dried each layer to build up the layers of colors. I did the same on with the bridge strip using Mowes Lawn Distress Ink.
I stamped the sentiment on the center of the card with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.
Then I stamped the other images from Gnome Is Where The Heart Is stamp set on a smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink Pad, colored them with Primacolors Pencils and Blender, and cut them out.
I finished the card by adding the colored images on the card with Art Glitter Dies Clear Adhesive.
I hope this card inspire you to try this fun fold card :) And I would like to remind you that Joy Clair December/Challenge is still open for you to play along. GO HERE for the theme, inspiration photo and projects from the team.
