Hello! I'm back today with my weekly Design Team Post and today's card is a Fold Flap Slimline featuring a juggling fox! As soon as I saw this fox image in the To-Tail-Ly Awesome set I wanted to make a juggling fox card and I finally got to make it! I also have a walkthrough of my card on YouTube:
I went through my stash and pulled out colourful enamel dots for the fox to juggle. If you don't have enamel dots, you could use small buttons, sequins, Nuvo Drops etc. I went over the ears and all of the white areas on the fox with a Wink of Stella pen so they are nice and shimmery.
Inside I added some simple lettering, a narrow strip of black card stock & sequins and this card is perfect to send out for Happy Mail!
- Cut card stock 7 x 8.5"
- Putting the 7" edge at the top of your scoring tool, score at 1-1/4" and 3-1/2".
- Fold your card in half at the 3-1/2" scoreline, to form your card base
- Fold the 1-1/4" scored edge to the front of the card.
- NOTE: I adhered the flap right to the card front using thin foam tape, but most of the A2 Fold Flap Cards I've seen utilize pretty patterned papers and have the card open as more of an accordion.
Now you can decorate it as you desire! I die cut the Craft-A-Round Slimline die from white card stock. and used the die cut as a stencil. That is another way to get more mileage from your dies!
For the 1" wide rainbow strip, I cut 1/2" strips of colourful card stock and adhered them next to each other onto text weight paper. I ended up creating two sheets of these and have just been cutting strips or pieces as needed to decorate my Crafty Meraki Design Team Cards.
I'm and I'll be back next week with another Crafty Meraki project - a Floral Hugs Shaker Mini Slimline Card. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
