Artistically Asian Folded Screen Card

If you like fancy fold cards, you’ll love making a Folded Screen Card with the new Artistically Asian stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  Actually this card combines Gate Fold and Folded Screen techniques, because the artwork didn’t fit on one of the panels.  Cardmakers are often eager to try different kinds of folds for their cards, as we get a little tired of the usual flat canvas.

In keeping with the simple and elegant lines of the stamps, I kept the panels very simple.  The Seaside Embossing Folder provides just enough interest for the center panels without detracting from the focal point.  I also tried stamping the panels with the bamboo image from Artistically Asian.  That would work, too, but I chose the more subtle embossing.  Which do you like?

Sorry, the lighting was different for this photo, so the panels look more like Pool Party than the Soft Sky they really are.

You can see a sympathy card made with both the Artistically Asian stamp set and Seaside Embossing Folder in this post:  Sympathy Card.

Here’s what the card looks like when it’s closed.  I had to add a ribbon to make it flat enough to go in an envelope, but decided to leave it unattached so my friend can leave it off once she’s opened it.

The sentiment doesn’t fit in the panels, either, so I added it to the back.  This also means there’s a surface to write on, so it was a good solution.  This sentiment works for a simple friendship card, but of course could be used for a birthday or other occasions as well.

You’ll use the sentiments in this set over and over.  They’re perfect for so many circumstances.

      Thanks, Bernice, I’m glad you like it! I’ll at least make a video on how to make the card base, and let you decide how to decorate it yourself.

    This is beautiful! I love it! And I like the version with the bamboo on the panels. It looks more like the real carved screens. I really want to make some of these and would also like to have that stamp set. I can see how you made the feet on each panel, very clever. 🙂 Please order that stamp set for my Sage. Do you need my debit card number again? Thank you!
