Today’s fun fold Valentine uses the Share a Milkshake Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! January to April Mini Catalog.
This Split Front Fun Fold Technique is much like a puzzle. To create the card two pieces are cut off of the bottom of a top fold card base. Start with an 11″ x 4 1/4″ card base score at 5 1/2″ and cut off first a 1 1/2″ strip, then a 2 1/2″ strip. The 1 1/2″ strip is going to be the bottom of the card front and the 2 1/2″ strip is going to be part of the center of the card front, turned sideways, with a few layers added with the die cut milkshake on top.
The milkshake is stamped with Real Red and Flirty Flamingo inks.
The inside is all decorated too! Although, on this card the cherry on the right side is a bit too low and shows when the card is closed. So you might want to either leave it off or stamp it higher. Watch my Split Front Card Tutorial to see this card made.
