Embellished Ornaments Fancy Fold Card

Published by under cards | Aug 31 2015

Embellished Ornaments Fancy Fold Project, by the Stampin' Up! team at Paperific. Project created by Simone Bartrum

A big hello to all the wonderful people we met and chatted with at the Paperific Expo last weekend. Our team had a great time sharing and crafting with you, and I hope you enjoyed it too.

You are welcome to subscribe to my email newsletter (the signup box is in the right sidebar of my blog home page). You will often find me procrastinating over on my Stamping with Simone Facebook page, so come and check out the scenery there too. 😉

But back to Paperific. We ran a series of classes during the show which were a big hit with our visitors. Every single class was booked out!

In the morning we ran a shaker frame class, which I will be repeating up here for my local friends on September 27th (TBC – will depend on backorder situation). This one is close handy for those of you in or around the Ballarat, Daylesford, Bendigo and Goldfields regions.

And here’s the project I came up with for the afternoon, which also booked out early so we managed to squeeze an extra class in to our daily program.

It’s a fancy fold card in Night of Navy and gold – now that’s a striking colour combination!

And when you open it up…

It uses the Floral Frames Collection dies to create the fancy fold, and is decorated with some lovely new products: Embellished Ornaments stamp set and coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits dies.

You can buy the stamp set and Framelit dies separately from 1st of September, but if you buy them at the same time you’ll save 15%!  Gotta love those bundles.

The shape of this card was inspired by one of Debbie Mageed’s, but we are using the reverse side and instead of hand-cutting the side shapes we use the half-cut technique and some carefully positioned cutting pads with the Big Shot.


We gave class attendees a 4-page tutorial so they can make the project again when they get home. I’ll be running this class again in Creswick (near Ballarat/Daylesford) on Thursday Sept 17 and we’ll also be making it at stamp club.

Craft@Home Club members: You will be getting the full tutorial and card for FREE as one of the items in your September Inspiration Pack. Australian residents: You can receive tutorials and cards like this in the mail each and every month. Request info by email about the Craft@Home Club.

Some of the other demonstrators in our team will be running this class in other parts of Melbourne and throughout Victoria. So if you are looking to attend a class, let me know and I’ll be happy to put you in touch with someone close to you.
