Poinsettia Place Buckle Fold Card for The Spot #127. Welcome to another Challenge from The Spot. This week we are looking at Fun Folds, with the theme of ‘Show us Your Favourite Fun Fold’. I have to admit that although my project uses a fold that I love, this is the first time I have made it. I must also admit that I have not filmed it, nor have I finalised the measurements. But I am working on it and am sure I will bring this card back in a new guise soon, with all the trimmings, just like a great Christmas!
I decided to use the Poinsettia Place Suite for the first time today. Why I have not used it before, I honestly can’t tell you, it is such an elegant suite and definitely one that I will be using a LOT. I think it may even be in a future Creativity in a Box I can see it being used for so many amazing projects.
The key to the fold is that you need to have a double fold card, one of which folds into the other, or under another element. I have made what I consider to be a ‘classic’ Buckle Fold, complete with slit. The slit is made using the Classic Label Punch, which I simply punched once and then moved up and down in the same area until I had a long enough slit. It really is not as difficult as I have made it sound!!
The Poinsettia, leaves and berries are all die cut from the flocked vellum paper. I also die cut a piece of Whisper White to back the main flower to ensure that there was enough substance. I am hoping this will mean that the flower will not tear when it is taken in and out of the buckle slit.
To finish the card off, I added some pearls to the berries and the centre of the flower. The ones for the centre of the flower have been coloured with the Light Cinnamon Cider Blend, this gives them the look of the colour used in the paper that I have used.
