Pick of the Week

Hi everyone!
It's Patti's turn to share a Pick of the Week at The House that Stamps Built. The Repeat Impressions Stampthat I picked to showcase are:

Can you believe Easter is right around the corner? Seems like we were just enduring the never-ending month of January, and moaning about having to remember to put 2020 on things!

I thought I'd share another fun fold with ya'll today! Here's what I made:

Let's get started!

First you need a 5.5" x 7.5" piece of cardstock for your card base.
Score this on the long side at 4.25" as shown below:

Next, you will need to decide on your focal panel so you know what size to cut your flap.
Here is my image:

My flap needed to be 4.75" x 3 1/8" in order to hold my image. Score on the long side, at 3", as shown below:

Cut two white panels:
1 @ 5.25" x 4"
1 @ 5.25" x 3"

Add some adhesive to the inside of your flap (I used Scor-Tape so it would be visible)

Adhere the small piece of the flap over the larger of the two white panels where desired - you may want it in the middle, to the left, to the right.

Here's what this looks like from the front.

Adhere white panel to card base, as shown.

Adhere smaller white panel to card base, as shown below:

Adhere focal panel to your flap.

Adhere sentiment, or a flower, 'something' that you can adhere using dimensional foam. This will allow your flap to slip behind and keep card closed.

If desired grab your markers, and dot the white space to match the focal panel.

Ta-da, - Ta-done!

Fun fold - I'm going to try that with one of my Easter cards. Thanks for the tutorial. Love how you made the dots on the white cardstock. Again will tuck that one in my memory bank. Although there is not much room left up there.

What a great fold and the little chick is darling. Trying to make some Easter cards while we are housebound, sure glad I have my stamp room to escape to. Stay well.
