Best Day “W” Card

I created this “W-fold card”, inspired by my upline Naomi and her daughter Rachel. There are a few YouTube videos up on it as well. I have a video that I created on my Facebook Page that you can check out:

This was a lot of fun and fairly easy to do.

  • Base of the card is 11″x 4.25″. Score/fold at the 5.5″ mark.
  • “W-Fold” stripe is 11″ x 1″. Score at the 2 3/4″, 5.5″, and 8 1/4″. The 5.5″ is the mountain fold with the 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″ folds being the valley folds.
  • Cut 3 – 5 1/4″ panels in Sweet Leaf.
  • Cut 3 – 5″ x 3 3/4″ panels using the large Rectangle Stitched Thin Cut Dies from the Zoe Paper of your choice.
  • Cut a white panel from the medium Rectangle Stitched Thin Cut Dies. This is for the front panel.
  • Use Canary, Smoothie, Mint, Sweet Leaf, and Archival Black Ink Pads.
  • Stamp butterflies from S1904 Love So Sweet onto Zoe pattern (more colorful the better IMHO). You’ll need 3.
  • Stamp flowers from S1904 Love So Sweet: 3 in Canary ink first, then rock the edges around on the Smoothie ink pad to create a two-toned flowers. 1 in Smoothie.
  • Fussy-cut the flowers and butterflies out.
  • Using the zipstrip of choice, tape it down to the “w-fold” strip.
  • Attach panels as shown in pictures. Add the “w-fold” strip to the inside, gluing down the first and last sections of the strip. The two middles ones need to be able to bend so you can get the “w”.
  • Stamp “Best Day” in Mint and Sweet Leaf on the white stitched panel and adhere with 3D foam tape to the front of the card.
  • Attach one of the butterflies and flower as you see fit.
  • On the side, do the same.
  • Add some Gold Shimmer Pen and Gold Glitter Gems to finish it off.
