SU No Bones About It

August 6, 2015

I am sure you have seen the cool Corner Fold or Corner Flip Fold cards out there…so many people have created beautiful cards using this technique. I set out to find out “who” originally made it but that was a chore…so credit goes to all the wonderful crafters- and there are a slew of them- who  inspired me to make one. When perusing around the internet, I saw a lot of  gorgeous floral cards and very few masculine or children’s card so I challenged myself to make one.

I wanted to share this card with the gang over at Stamp Ink Paper

SIP-Any-Challenge-8
for their Designer’s Choice Challenge # 8. 

I used  the SU No Bones About It stamp set with all of the 2014-16 In Colors- Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, and Tangelo Twist  with Crumb Cake as my card base grunged up with the SU Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
I doubled up on the Little Letters Thinlits RAWR to give a little extra texture…

I made a template to keep to remind me how to make this simple card.
Now, if it gets lost in the rubble…it will be on my blog:)

Corner Fold Template

Score your 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock into portrait style at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.

  • Place the Stampin’ Trimmer upside down with the sliding ruler on the left and the 1″ mark closest to you.
  • Open the card and slide the front of the card over to the right side and line up with the 3″ mark on the Stampin’ Trimmer.
  • Place the trimmer blade at the 2 1/2″ mark on the sliding ruler and cut upward to the 4 7/8″ mark.

Corner Fold Template Landscape

  • Now turn your card a quarter to the right so it is in the landscape position and slide the right side over to the 3″ mark again.
  • This time, place your trimmer blade on the 3″ mark and cut downward to the 5/8″ mark. (You will see that the 3″ mark lines up at the corner with the lower point of the cut you made previously ).
  • Now you just push through the cut corner from the front and it will flip over.
  • I found to keep the fold straight on the front,  it was helpful to line up the flipped edge part  with the fold line as a reference point. I then used my bone folder to press that part down near the fold first and then the lower one on the right side of the front of the card. Using a bone folder really finishes the folds nicely.
  • The white stamped panel on the flip fold is a 2 1/2″ square. The Blackberry Bliss border is a 2 3/4″ square.
  • The inside white panel is 3 3/4″ x 5″ bordered by a  Blackberry Bliss panel cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.

Ever see a stamp set and wonder…hmmm, will I use this?
That is what I thought about the SU No Bones About It set. Now, I can see a bunch of possibilities with it! Look at all the images you get- and you can put the skeleton inside the dinosaur images with ease because it is a photopolymer stamp set!

Can’t you just see this as a Valentine’s Day card with pink and red dinosaurs with the sentiment
“No Bones About It…You’re Great!”

I feel a card coming on…
