Cool Popsicles Fancy Fold - Stampin' Up! Cool Treats

  I love it when I come across a new fancy fold that is really cool but is also really easy to make!  I like to introduce my stampers to new techniques and folds at my classes but I have to keep in mind the different experience levels of my stampers as well as make sure it doesn't take too long for a whole group to be able to complete.   This fold really fits the bill!  It's only 4 score lines....really that's it!

  I saw this card originally shared by Lyssa Zwolanek on her blog and she has a quick photo tutorial.  But really all you need is a half sheet of cardstock (8.5 x 5.5). Score on the long side at 2, 3 1/8, 5 3/8 & 6 1/2.  And that's it!  Thanks to Lyssa for sharing this fold!  Everyone loved it at my last class!

  Here is my version using the Cool Treats stamps, Frozen Treats framelits and Tasty Treats DSP.

  Again, I didn't want to show many items that might be retired once class came around so I focused on the stamp set and framelits which are carrying over but not in the money saving bundle.  The paper will be retiring and is currently being sold at a discount.  We used 2 of the paper patterns for the panels and mounted the popsicles on the center panel on a 2.5" circle.

  The blue popsicle is Pool Party stamped off once and then the highlights added in full strength ink,  The Peekaboo Peach one is stamped right on the circle.  The Pear Pizzazz is also stamped off once before adding the stripes in full strength.  The 2 side popsicles were cut out and adhered with dimensionals.

  The Pear Pizzazz sentiment banner is stamped with Crumb Cake and is also adhered with a dimensional.  When you trim the banner just make sure that it doesn't hang over the edges of the card so that you can fit it in the envelope.   Which is what makes this card so cool...once you flatten it down it fits in a regular A2 envelope!  But when you take it out of the envelope it opens and stands up for display! So cool!

    Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
