Just Add Ink #284 - Just Add a Fancy Fold

WOW! It's Friday again! These weeks come around so quickly. And this week was no exception. This kids are back at school for the last term of the year and they have just finished their second week so we are back into the full swing of school, home, church and everything else life.

This week at Just Add Ink we have a challenge suggested by Di - Just Add a Fancy Fold. This is something I don't do very often at all so it was a great challenge for me too.

I've made a Pop Out Swing Card and it was very easy to do. I must say the Pop Out Swing part of the card is not my original idea. I'm just not a mechanical thinker like that. I saw the Pop Out Swing Card on Pinterest and went from there.

I've used the Timeless Elegance DSP to decorate my card and I've accented it with Mint Macaron and Gold (of course).

To open the card you pull out the left side of the square panel and pull the right side of the card and it will 'pop' right open and the square panel will 'swing' though the square opening.

And just an inside view of the card. Accented with some Mint Macaron Lace Trim and a Very Vanilla Panel to write you greeting.

Please have a look at the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team and their Fancy Fold Creations. There are some fabulous pieces there! That's for sure!! Make sure you link up and enter your projects for this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. This is so very dramatic & elegant, Rochelle &. I love the little touches of lace & glimmer elements you've added. They make it so touchable. Definitely a very special fancy fold card.

  2. Oh Rochelle this is divine. I can't wait to try one of these - they've always looked a bit hard (as in too much thinking to create) but now that you say it was pretty easy, I'm going to give it a red hot go. I love how you've decorated with the laces and gold! xox
