Technique Tuesday: COLLAR FOLD

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you going crazy over the Buy 3 / Get 1 FREE Designer Series paper promotion?  Whew … I am (twice already) lol  But, what do you do when you love both sides of that designer paper??  Well I have a good answer for you today … the “Collar Fold” technique!

The Collar Fold shows off both sides of your designer paper and is really easy to do! So let me show you … Start with a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of designer paper, I used one of the colorful floral patterns from the “Garden Impressions” Designer paper.

Center your designer paper in your cutter at the 3-3/4″ (That is half of the 5-1/4″ length) Then place your cutter at the 2″ mark on the ruler … then cut to edge. YUP … that simple! Now you will just fold those cuts back.  You can tape them down or use a dimensional like I did on this card (to give it a little lift!)

When using a dark base like the Melon Mambo that I used here,  I like to tuck a piece of Whisper White behind it … it really makes the greeting stand out.  My greeting came from the “Beautiful Banquet” stamp set however if you were going to purchase the “Abstract Impressions” bundle … that is where the cute little flower die came from, they have some awesome greetings that would work great!!

I had to add the flower because I’m not to fond of bare edges so I topped off my flower with the cute little “Clear Faceted Gems”. Really makes the flower pop!!

Because the “Garden Impressions” designer paper is 6″ x 6″ there will be some paper left overs which you can tuck on the inside and jazz that up a bit as well.

Have some fun and flip those designer papers back and show off both beautiful sides!  Don’t throw those scraps away …tuck them on the inside or create other projects with them.

Thanks for stopping back today and checking out my Technique Tuesday. Let me know what technique you would like to see featured!!

Have a beautiful day ~
