Fun Fold Slimline Card

Hello, it’s Tammy Massey, and I’m excited to be back as a guest designer on the Gerda Steiner blog! Today, I’m sharing a fun-fold slimline card I created with the Little Things stamp set. 

I have been in love with this little guy since I first saw him on @gerdasteinerdesigns Instagram back in January, so to finally create with him is like taking the cutest boy in school to the prom. Definitely worth the wait!

To understand this card, it helps to see it standing up on display. Here, you can see the three-panel accordion fold design. 



The card began with a whole sheet of cardstock that I scored in thirds and then folded like an accordion. Starting at the bottom, I stamped the first image, and then I used a hill-shaped die – and a partial die cutting technique – to cut just the first panel. After that cut, I trimmed away the excess paper above the hill. 

From there, I continued up the panel, stamping the middle image, and then using another hill-shaped die and cutting away the space above that mole’s head. On that panel, I also stamped the sentiment, bending it a little to follow the curve of the hill.

The final image is stamped on the third (back) panel. Along with this mole, I also stamped the sun image from the Hello Sunshine set. Since this 3rd panel is full size, there is room beneath the mole for a personal message to the recipient. 

It looks a little weird, but here’s what the card looks like opened up. 

I colored all the images with Copic markers. Finally, I added a few highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen, and I traced the dandelion fluff with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.

And Holey Moley, there you have it! The absolute cutest little guy…times three!
