Fun Folds Class - part 3

Continuing on with the samples from my Fun Folds class this week.. here is the 3rd one.  This was totally inspired by the AWESOME Beate Johns.. I adore her work, and based this card on one of her recent creations. 

Bella 2 

This card is a folded Top Note Die from Stampin' Up! (see below for details). It is cut out of Riding Hood Red cardstock and stamped with the Baroque background stamp in the same ink.  The focal point is Bella Blossoms, also stamped in Riding Hood Red ink.

Bella 1 

The greeting is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and punched out with the large oval punch and layered on the Designer Label punch (Riding Hood Red c/s sponged with Chocolate Chip ink).

The ribbons are: White and Chocolate taffet ribbon wrapped around the card together and tied together in a knot.

To make the folded Top Note Die, you can cut your cardstock to 4-1/4"x8-1/2", fold it in 1/2 (so you have a 4-1/4" square), then place it on the Top Note die with the fold HERE:

Line up the FOLD of your c/s as shown above and then run it through the Big Shot Machine.  This will give you a folded Top Note... this is very similar to the folded Scallop cards HERE.

Very pretty! I need to try that folding/cutting technique when I get a chance! I've been a *little* busy creating a 12 Days of Christmas series for my blog...

My Bella Blossoms stamp is coming Monday! I earned 4 sets with my second sales period of Stampin' Start! I'm so excited...just one set to go, if I'm lucky!

Thanks for all of your great projects Patty!


Very pretty and just love the top note die.

Great cards, Patty. I just wanted to stop by and tell you that I saw you on the Workshop Wows DVD that I just got in my last SU! supply order!!! You did a really great job!! That is a wonderful resource, and I'm so glad I finally decided to get it! Love the little 4X4 cards you showed on there, too.

Patty, thanks so much for these pictures.
I just got my bigshot and was wondering just how that was done.
You're great!

I love your card and I want to ask about this big die if it can be used with cuttlebug

These are so cute. What a great idea to cut them out this way. I have done this with square and circle dies, but never thought of doing it with this one. thanks for sharing! Sandy O


Patti, what is the name of your background stamp???? I love it! I don't think I have every seen it before....I want it! Please advise.
I love your work. Thank you for all the sharing and allowing me to CASE it all! Happy Thanksgiving! kt
