Control Freaks Blog Tour: Masculine Fun Fold Cards with Classic Garage

Whether you are coming from the creative and talented Wendy Weixler's blog or just joining us -- welcome to the April 2019 Control Freaks Blog Tour! Our theme this month is For the Men -- Masculine cards for all the men in your life! 

I am excited to share two fun folds with you today! The cards are very similar. The first one is an explosion card and the second one includes a miniature version of the first one INSIDE the card! I'm calling it an Exploding Pop-Up Card.


Here's the Explosion Card closed. I tied a ribbon around the entire card to keep it closed.

 You can see the unique fold as you start to open the card.

 It opens up to the full 8" x 8" square. The scoring measurements are very simple. Score at 4" on each side. Then score on one diagonal. Start by folding the diagonal in half away from you. Open it back up. Then fold on a straight score line toward you. Open it back up and fold on the other straight line toward you. Now the card is primed and ready to fold back on to itself. Use a bone folder to get good creases.

 Check out the inside panel! I used the Embossing Mats with the Garage Gears Thinlit Dies to create this embossed look. The Embossing Mats are retiring, so be sure to get this Big Shot accessory before it's gone!

 Once you've made the Explosion Card, the Exploding Pop Up Card is a piece of cake! Here is the outside of my card. I used the same color scheme as the first card: Tranquil Tide, Basic Black, and Crushed Curry. I love this Classic Garage Designer Paper! It's so easy to make masculine cards with colors that pop!

The inside is just a mini Explosion Card! The inside piece is 4" x 4", scored at 2" from either side and then one diagonal. Use the same folding instructions as above. Collapse the insider piece and glue one side at a time so that the point of the diamond is just inside the center score line.

VIDEO: Meet the New 2019-2021 In Colors!

When a new catalog is released, I am most excited to see the new In Colors! Stampin' Up! hit it out of the ballpark with this year's colors -- they are so on trend that they have a color that is pretty close to Pantone's Color of the Year! Meet Terracotta Tile! And the rest of the 2019-2021 In Colors: Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, and Purple Posy. Which one is your favorite?

Watch the replay of my Facebook Live video to get a closer look at the In Colors and how they compare to current core colors and retired Stampin' Up! Colors:



I used a brand new bundle to make these cards. It's called Above the Clouds and has a coordinating punch! You'll be able to order both of these when the new catalog is released on June 4.
