Crazy Crafters October Blog Hop - Fun Folds

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop for October. This month we are excited to show off some amazing fun folds. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Nicole Spicer - or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Nicole Spicer.

Here is the Blog Hop line up:

Here is my card for this months blog hop, using the fun fold "Tri-Fold Shutter".

I absolutely love making tri-fold shutter cards. I think they're a great way to show off beautiful designer paper and let them really speak for themselves, without too much embellishment. I have used papers from the new 2015 Holiday Catalogue called "Season of Cheer". I think the design are so lovely and contrast so well together. The colours are really beautiful with a hint of Soft Sky on some of the designs. I have matted my panels of DSP with Mossy Meadow to compliment the Cheery Cobbler card base.

I have used two stamp sets on my card , one for the front called "Peaceful Wreath" and the sentiment from "Versatile Christmas". I seem to always purchase sentiment stamp sets in Wood mount because it saves so much time to stamp and go, especially in this case where I have stamped and then die cut my circles. For more precise stamping I always use my Stamp-a-ma-jig.

The dimensions of my card are as follows. I got this from Pinterest, from "The Per(s)nickety Scrapper". She also has some pics of how to cut and place your layered DSP. You can visit her blog by clicking on the image below.

I have also folded my card a bit differently to how I sometimes do it, because I wanted a flush, clean front with the same DSP showing.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today. I would love it if you could leave me a comment and let me know what you though too!

 A list of the supplies I have used are below.
