Today’s tutorial is for a fun fold I called Side Spring card. Instructions were posted back in 2005 in a forum post on SCS and a recent post from Dawn reminded me of it.

For my card I started out with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock. The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Victoria Garden Paper pack. The strip on the left hand side measures 1 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. A sentiment from The Greeting Farm’s new Clear Set Build-a-Onesie Boy was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink directly on to the paper strip. Part of a Finesse Silver Rhinestone Swirl was adhered over to sentiment.

For the main image I stamped the onesie image on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, colored it with Copic Markers (RV0000, RV10, N0, N1) and cut it out. A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with one of the Eyelet Square Nestabilities dies. A 2 3/8″ square of Victoria Garden paper was stitched to it after the corners were rounded. The image was adhered to the square with dimensionals. Three Silver Baby Bling Rhinestones on the left corner finish off the card front.

For the inside a 5/8″ x 4 5/16″ long patterned paper strip was adhered to a 2 9/16″ x 4 5/16″ piece of white cardstock. A small image from the same set was stamped to the right hand side of the strip with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
