The Book Fold Technique is my new favorite Fun Fold Technique! It’s so simple! I’ve used a couple of other techniques on this card as well. I’ve colored the Black and White True Love DSP with the new Blending Brushes. I’m really liking these new tools, they make quick work of coloring in the flowers and leaves. I’ve also used the Blending Brushes to change the color of the ribbon. I have a whole drawer of ribbon but didn’t have the color that I wanted for this card, lol! Would you believe! I loved how quickly the ink transferred to the ribbon and how little mess it made doing it.
Dimensions for the basic Book Fold Technique:
Cut a standard 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base. Score at 5 1/2″ (normal score) then score again at 4 1/4″. The 2 pieces of designer paper are cut to 1″ x 4″ and 4″ x 4″. IT’S SO SIMPLE!!!
Watch my Book Fold Technique Video to see the Blending Brushes in action and to see how easy the Book Fold Technique is.
This photo shows a close up of the coloring with the Blending Brushes and also the color on the ribbon. For a deeper color just add more ink.
Shopping List: Please note that the greeting I used is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set which has been retired.
