Hero Arts Birthday Bash U Fold

1 Comment

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I am inspired by this month’s challenge theme: Fun Folds, and tried a new fold myself.  This one is called the “U fold”.  Let’s take a look.

I think a picture is worth a thousand words.  Everything is pretty self explanatory.  But I do want to mention that my card base size is 7.5 inched in width and 4.25 inches high, after you fold the one side, the card becomes the same size as an A2 card.  The scores are done at 1 inch, 2 inch, 5.5 inch and 6.5 inch.  So the area left in the middle is 3.5 by 4.25 inches.

Two digi stamp sets were used for this card, I use the Artistic Circles for the background.  The sentiment and birthday cake are added on top of the background and printed all at once, then I colored the cake with markers.  The balloons are printed separately, colored, hand cut and glued to the sides.  The strings are hand drawn with a black glaze pen.  Here’s the beauty shot.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join in our Fun Folds Challenge this month.  Check the details below and play along!

  1. Fantastic fold card. I don’t think I’ve seen this fold before and the images you used are perfect for this card style.
