SHOW ME SUNDAY BY: Fern

Sunday, June 5, 2011

Hi everyone, Fern here with todays Show Me Sunday Tutorial here at Frosted Designs. Now, I don't want you to be discouraged as you go through this, it really isn't that hard.. In fact, the hardest thing for me was choosing my paper!!! :o)
This is a fancy card fold with lace edges, some may call the handkerchief fold, and you will need the following to make it:
1 - 12" x 12" cardstock (I used white)
3 - different coordinating colors of paper (I used 2 pieces of StampinUp Rich Razzleberry DSP and 1 piece of SU Pale Plum CS)
Something to Score your paper ( I used the Score-Pal)
Border and Corner Punchs (I used MS Eyelet Lace Punch)
Ribbon ( I used SU Rich Razzleberry Ribbon)
And then anything else you want to embellish the band with!


Okay, first off we score our 12" x 12" piece of CS at 3" and 9"..
Now rotate and score it again at 3" and 9" and using your bone folder, crease all of the folds... It should look like this...


Now turn it over and find the center of the page and put a dot there..


Now take all four (4) corners and bring them toward the center dot.. crease!!
should look like this..


Now we need to get our shape... Unfold your page.. turn it back over (to the front) and take the center of the top of the page and bring to the middle .. Take the middle of one of the sides and bring it to the middle.. see what it's doing?? Do the bottom and the other side the same way.... Now really crease all of the edges!!! Should look like this...


Now you need to punch the corners and edges... It should look like this...


Now we are going to fold up all four corners to make a triangle.... and crease those really good, too...


Now you are ready to add your decorative paper!!!
Here are the measurements:
Largest triangles are: 2) 5 1/2" squares cut into fourths..
You can see where I attached these to the front and also the back....


Center square and back square are cut at 5 3/4" square..


Next you will need 2) 3 1/4" squares cut into fourths... you should have 8 pieces.. I used plain cardstock and then inked the edges, but feel free to use decorative paper on yours...


Now you need 1) 3 3/4" square cut into fourths for the underneath side of your corner.. Now just a word of caution here... If you are using striped paper like I did, you will need to cut 2 squares because the stripes will not be going the same way on all 4 of your pieces... Cut 2 squares and take 2 from one and 2 from the other... I hope that makes since....


You need to attach these under each corner... You just need four (4)..


You will need 1) 2 3/4" square for each corner top... I used a decorative corner punch on mine to add just a little something...


The white layer in the middle is cut 5 3/4 " square and then I used the MS corner and border punch on this as well...




Now you are ready to make the band to keep this baby together...

You will need a 12" x 1 1/2" piece of cardstock and some ribbon and anything else you want to decorate it with...


I punched both sides of the strip and then attached my ribbon. And then I used a die cut, covered it with dp and added a sticker....

And now are you ready for my finished card?!!!!



There you have it!!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will give it a try.. It really isn't that hard once you find the right papers!!!
I would love to see what you come up with!!!
Thanks for joining me!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs!!
