Fun Fold Fan Card-A Paper Pumpkin Alternate

Published on 2 February 2024 at 09:00

Hello, my crafty friends!  Today I am sharing a card that I first saw about six months ago.  It was a 5" x 7" card by Iced Images.  See Picture below.  I knew I wanted to create the card in A2 size.  So, I finally sat down and worked out the dimensions for a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 size for one of my Paper Pumpkin alternatives for class this month.  If you would like to learn how to make fun, unique cards like this one, consider subscribing to Paper Pumpkin and attending my monthly class for card ideas.  All the measurements and layouts will be posted for class attendees.


For this card, I used one half of a card base from the kit and coordinating Perennial Lavender DSP.  Usually, you cut the card to the shape of the fan but I haven't done that as of yet. 


Below is the 5" x 7" card I made with Countryside Inn DSP and the Thoughtful moments Hybrid Embossing Folder.  This is how the card looks if you cut around the fan once you have placed it on the base.
