I recently attended a Stampin Up! demonstrator only on-line class with my upline, Jacque Williams.
This flowering fields W-V fold card was one of the cards we made together.
For this card, I have changed the papers I used in the original, as well as focal point – the flowers.
There are several bits and pieces to cut out -so I would suggest doing them all first.
Then the assembly of the card is very quick after that.
Let’s get started making this flowering fields W-V fold card!
For your W-V fold card you will need:
Basic white thick cardstock
11″ x 5½” -score with the narrow side vertical at 4″;5 3/4″; 7½” and 9¼”
1 x piece of basic white cardstock – cut 3″ x 6″ -scored at 3″ (this is the fold)
3x pieces of matte for the fold and inside the card – cut 2 5/8″ x 2 5/8″
2 x pieces of basic white cardstock – cut 2½” x 2½”
1x piece of designer series paper – cut 2½” x 2½” (I chose a print that I could emboss on)
2 pieces of matte for the side panels – cut 5 3/8″ x 1 5/8″
2 pieces of designer series paper – 1½” x 5¼” (choose a print with a contrast if you want that option)
1x piece of basic white 3 5/8″ x 5¼” ( you will emboss this, or leave it plain)
1x piece of matte 5 1/8″ x 3 ½”
Scrap of designer series paper for the inside
Dies of flowers
Pear Pizazz cardstock scraps
Stampset of choice
Now for the assembly
You will need to start with the card base.
With the larger part of the card on your right – fold the folds on the left.
It must go mountain, valley, mountain and valley.
Next you will need to take the basic white piece for embossing -and either emboss it, or just glue it onto the large matte piece.
Glue this onto the inside of the card.
The next thing you need to do is stamp a sentiment on one of the square white cardstock pieces.
I then glued this onto the square matte.
I also added some scrap designer series paper -but you can leave it plain.
The fold is next
Fold the 3″ x 6″ white cardstock in half.
Using the basic white square – glue that onto the square matte and stick that onto the right hand side of the cardstock. Don’t yet glue the fold down!!
Here’s a photo:
You can decide to emboss words onto the small square designer series paper – or leave it blank.
Glue this onto the remaining matte -and adhere onto the left side of the fold panel.
Set the fold to the side for now.
Glue the remaining designer series paper onto the matching matte pieces and stick them onto the 2 panels.
I chose to showcase both sides of the gorgeous flowering fields paper.
Once you’ve done that, bring the panels together.
Then bring the white fold together -with the fold on the right.
Place some liquid glue inside the fold, and then holding the panels of the main card together in your left hand-
Position the fold over the main panels and hold down to adhere.
Take the card with the sentiment – measure where you need to glue it down onto the embossed card.
I usually push the panels down and then gently place the sentiment down and adhere it.
The last few bits are quick.
Cut flowers using dies or punches in cardstock of your choice.
Add some ribbon/twine and embellishments.
And that’s your flowering fields W-V fold card all done!
