Sweet Talk Fun Fold

Happy Tuesday from frigid southern Ontario! It is soooooo ccccold here this morning, I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever get warm! I can't wait for spring...just a couple more months to go! Weather this cold can only mean Valentine's Day is coming, so I thought I would turn my attention to the adorable Sweet Talk Suite in the new mini catalogue this week and work on projects to share the love on Feb. 14th. Check out this adorable fun fold card I made:

Isn't that fun?? I had never seen this fun fold before until last weekend when I happened upon a blog that had a cute Christmas card using this fold. I searched high and low for a tutorial, but couldn't find one, so I figured it out myself. I was shocked that it only took me two tries to get it right...it's a surprisingly easy wow!

Here's a side view...

It folds flat and fits in a standard envelope for mailing. The finished size is 4" x 5-1/2"...I tried to make it a standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" but was ending up with some crazy measurements, so I opted to keep it simple and go with a slightly narrower card. When the card is open and standing up, you'd never know it is 1/4" narrower than standard.

I used two patterns from the  Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper to decorate the various panels on my card...I love that this paper pack is more than just pink and red...the pop of purple is a welcome surprise for Valentine's Day. The focal panel measures 2" x 3", making it the perfect size to showcase the cute little tag die-cut from the Sweet Hearts Dies. I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Conversations stamp set and a few hearts in Blushing Bride and Real Red ink, added a sweet bow and some yummy iridescent rhinestones.

I think the best thing about this card is that it is just as cute from the back as it is the front! I added some more DSP and some Basic White panels, allowing lots of space to write a loving message.

I can't wait to demonstrate this card in today's Facebook Live @ Five on my business page! You'll be as amazed as I was at how easy this fold is to create! If you miss the live broadcast, you can catch the replay shortly afterwards on my YouTube channel. 

Thanks for stopping by today...be sure to come back on Saturday for our monthly Stamping Symphony Blog Hop...see you then!
