Hello crafty friends,
Karthikha here today, with another fun fold card! Can you figure out how this card fold is made? Watch the video first!
No wonder it is called the 'Impossible fold card'! But let me tell you, it is super easy to make and needs just one piece of cardstock to make the base fold. And to step it up, it even has a floating element. I followed the tutorial from Mixed Up Crafts here.
I started by creating the base fold using thick acetate. For the side and main panels, I've ink blended Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks for an ombre look. I splattered some white ink to add interest. I trimmed the panels to the right size and adhered to the acetate base.
I then stamped the images from Diwali Cuties stamp set, with a little masking to remove the fireworks from the boy's hands. I heat embossed the outline, colored the images using Arteza real brush pens and fussy cut them. In the place of fireworks, I added two small balloon die-cuts. For the sentiment, I just used the word 'Prosperity' from the 'Light & Prosperity' stamp, to make my own custom sentiment. Isn't it great that a Diwali stamp set can be stretched to use for New Year theme? I love it!
Once the stamps and sentiment are adhered to the base folds, I added white diecuts on the back of each panel, to provide space for personal message. I finished the card by adding a lot of sequins :)
Do you see the floating element, almost invisible base? It is so fun to see this card on display!
Thank you for stopping by, hope you like my creation! Do let me know your feedback! Have a nice day :)
