Fun fold Friday Catch You Later

 Happy Friday 🥳.  Last night we held a hybrid inperson/ virtual class. It was so much fun... As well as possing a few challenges pretty much the same as when we make a fun fold card ! For today's make I'm using the last cute character from the Catch You Later stamp set the cheeky monkeys 🐒

I had great fun creating the card. The challenge came as I wanted my project to fit in a standard C6 envelope. The card that inspired me was created by a fellow crafted called Jamie Rodger. He called it a Pop Up Pillar card. His version is in inches and quite a bit bigger so that's  where the challenge laid for me.
The card is a simple idea use a flat card base then add pillars on each side to create dimension as many times as you wish.
For my card I started with a base piece measuring 14.85cm x 8cm.  I then made 2 pillars from 2 pieces of card each measuring 14.85cm x 5cm. I scored each strip at 1cm, 2cm, 3cm and 4cm and used my bone folder to reinforce the fold. Then I cut and scored 2 further pieces measuring 8cm x 5cm these were my second pillars. 
I chose to cover my base and all 4 pillars in pattern paper. The paper I chose is from the Artfully Composed.  I chose this because it has a fab jungley vibe.

I then stamped and coloured those cheeky monkeys. I partially fussy cut them from a piece of cardstock that was 8.5cm wide. I then adhered the 2 tallest pillars along the edges of the card base. Next I adhered the panel with the monkeys on across the first pillars at the top. I cut a panel that measured 10cm x and covered it in the same paper and attached this to the pillars at the bottom. 
I then took the 2 remaining pillars and placed them on the bottom left and right edge. I then covered that with a piece of cardstock measuring 8cm x 8.5cm that I covered in paper.
I wanted to create a jungle for these cheeky monkeys to play in so I punched lots of leaves from the Bough punch in green card stock. I used a sponge dauber to add a little ink to the tips and sides of the punched shapes as I think it adds depth and texture. 
Once everything was adhered I stamped my sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock then ran it through the cut and emboss machine with a wood effect embossing folder. I then cut the ends to kind of look like a rotten sign. I did apply a little crumb cake ink on top to give it a little age. I also added a little bakers twine to act as the hanger of the sign. The cute heart is a die cut and give a little pop of colour.

As you can see above the card does have some hight but it does fold flat for posting.

All in all I love the way this project turned out much like I enjoyed our hybrid class last night. 

Well that's it from me this week I do hope you've enjoyed my inspiration as much as I've enjoyed creating them.

Please join us next week when Gill will be sharing her creations with us all. 

Have a great weekend and hopefully find time to craft.

Have fun
