Let it Ride Stampin' Up! - Special Folds with SBTD January Blog Hop

Welcome to this months Stampers By the Dozen blog hop featuring special folds or fun folds even fancy folds, what ever you like to call them. So many choices and Pinterest was alive with suggestions, tutorials and even templates for all those folds. I have chosen the Joy Fold card for todays hop - even its name sounds nice.

I have used the let it Ride stamp set that my daughter chose from the current Occasions catalogue - I let my kids pick a set each, each catalogue this one is my 19 year olds choice. I have stamped in Early Espresso then coloured the horse with Stampin' Blends. The trees in the background were coloured with our markers in Mosey Meadow, Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake. The DSP is Wood Textures.


I just love how this card has the element of surprise of that piece folding in the opposite direction to what you are expecting. The 'For You' circle as 3 dimensionals over to the one side so that it acts as a clip for the front of the card.

I loved how well this turned out in landscape but have a real preference for Portrait cards so check this one out I couldn't find any measurements or tutorials to help me with the cutting for this card so made it up as I went along. To say I'm happy with the finished product is an understatement.

The Darling Label tag punch you will note has a nice frame around it - that's from the Everyday Label Punch chopped in half.
