It’s time for another Fancy Fold Design Team blog hop! This month we chose the Triple Cube Pop Up card. I have to admit that before starting these blog hops I was pretty intimidated by fancy folds. They always looked like they would be so complicated, but as I’ve been creating them it turns out that they’re usually pretty straight forward. Here’s a video showcasing this month’s card and I’ve also created a simple project sheet that you can download, so make sure to keep reading through to the end.
For my card design I used the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper as my jumping off point. From there I pulled Pear Pizzazz and Pretty Peacock from the DSP as my main colours, but also thought I’d throw in a splash of Purple Posy. (you can find 12″ x 12″ Pear Pizzazz in the Subtles 12″ x 12″ Cardstock Pack)
To spruce up the outside of my Triple Cube Pop Up card I used the small butterflies dies from the Butterfly Beauty dies with Pretty Peacock and Purple Posy cardstock. The Fine-Tip Glue Pen made it very easy to attach those tiny butterflies and raise their wings to give a little extra dimension. I also used the Timeless Tulips bundle with Purple Posy, Pretty Peacock and Pear Pizzazz ink.
For my phrase I used the Butterfly Wishes cling stamp set, this is also where I got the small butterfly images. The phrase was stamped using Pretty Peacock ink and for the butterflies I used the Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker to “colour” my stamps. Then I framed the phrase and butterflies using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.
This card looks so cool and I love how it can easily fold flat to fit into a square envelope, although I can’t guarantee it’s a standard square envelope.
Here’s my finished card…
