Fun Folds

I found this fun fold card by Kelly Acheson on Pinterest.  It showcases the All Dressed Up Bundle which is teamed with paper from the Sycamore Street DSP.  Did you know you can get this DSP FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration?  It features a wonderful selection of colors, including Pool Party, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake, and Rich Razzleberry.  Together they form a beautiful palette.
The card base is a 4 ¼” X 11” piece of Pool Party which is scored at 4 1/8” and 8 ½”.  The edge of the short piece was embossed with the scalloped border from the new Needlepoint Border Texture folders available in the Spring Catalog.  A 2 ½” circle was punched from the card base to form a place for that cute little dress to peek out.    
The edge of the doily is sponged with Pool Party ink before it is folded to form the skirt.  The dress form was cut out of Crumb Cake and I chose the Rich Razzleberry chevron for the dress bodice.  A piece of Pool Party ribbon and a single flower from the 5/8” Flower Trim.  You can add color to the flower by pushing it down on the Pool Party ink pad.   Adhere it to the dress with a glue dot. A strand of pearls is added to the neckline of the dress form.   The dress form is attached to the scallop circle and then use sticky strip to attach it to the card base.  A 4” square of Whisper White is added to the inside of the card for the sentiment and a 4” square of coordinating Sycamore Street DSP is attached to the front of the card base.  Add a sentiment  which is attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment will hold the front flap of the card closed.

Aren’t these fun?
