My fun fold card share today uses the By The Bay DSP. I created this card for my fun fold class in February and it was very popular because it shows off this paper design perfectly.
The By the Bay papers are 6×6 so most of the paper design can be used for a card front to make the most of the design. Initially I was puzzled as to how best use this paper design as I didn’t want to lose any of the lovely design or hide it behind too many stamped images or greetings. It was a great moment of inspiration for me when i hit upon using it for this fun fold card style! The paper design makes the card!
Adventurous Journey is the stamp set used for the row boat image and oars. The stamps go perfectly with the paper design don’t you think? If you are after a stamp set with lots of sentiments then check out the Sentimental Park stamp set. A terrific set just for the greetings! See other cards I have created using the Adventurous Journey stamp set by clicking here, and here. The second post mentioned shows off the Adventurous Journey stamp set as well as the By the Bays papers.
The die used for the greeting is part of the Cracker & Treat box die set. Another great die set just for the terrific narrow greeting dies in it! I use them all the time!
I hope you can take some inspiration from my card share today to work out a way to show off some of your papers that have you puzzled as to how best utilise their designs.
By the way the card stock used is Mint Macaron if you were wondering.
