Hand Stamped Sentiments #98 - Unique Folds

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are working with Unique Folds. Grab those bone folders, score pals and you tube tutorials and come and get your crease on with the rest of the design team!

 I found this lovely fancy fold HERE and thought it was perfect to showcase this beautiful Sale -A- Bration DSPaper and ink up my Valentine, You are Loved stamp set for the first time...a little sneak peek so so speak!

For my inside fancy fold, I cut the floral DSP the same as my card 8-1/2"X5-1/2" and then
scored at 2-1/8", 4-1/4" and 6-3/8" 
with my Bigz Clear Circle Die, I was able to see where it would cut on my page, so I lined it up and ran it through my Big Shot. 
I used a smaller piece of cardstock for the inside of my card where I stamped the Happy Valentines Day and scored that down the middle before inserting it onto my card. Then I adhered the top fancy folded piece and added the borders for a little bit of striped fun!

Since my card was a little thicker than normal and kept popping open, I attached some ribbon to tie it closed and then fancied up the front of my card.

Awesome job!!!! Can you believe how stunning that DSP is? I'm going to be going through that like nobody's business. The colouring that you've done before stamping that heart is insane... you have the patience of a saint!

I really liked that paper when I saw it in the mini, now I HAVE to have it!! Your card is so cute and I like the way you used the embossing folder and cut it out. The heart in the fancy fold really tops off the Valentine's Day theme. :) CUTE!!
