Continuing on with the samples from my Fun Folds class this week.. here is the 3rd one.  This was totally inspired by the AWESOME Beate Johns.. I adore her work, and based this card on one of her recent creations. 

Bella 2 

This card is a folded Top Note Die from Stampin' Up! (see below for details). It is cut out of Riding Hood Red cardstock and stamped with the Baroque background stamp in the same ink.  The focal point is Bella Blossoms, also stamped in Riding Hood Red ink.

Bella 1 

The greeting is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and punched out with the large oval punch and layered on the Designer Label punch (Riding Hood Red c/s sponged with Chocolate Chip ink).

The ribbons are: White and Chocolate taffet ribbon wrapped around the card together and tied together in a knot.

To make the folded Top Note Die, you can cut your cardstock to 4-1/4"x8-1/2", fold it in 1/2 (so you have a 4-1/4" square), then place it on the Top Note die with the fold HERE:

Line up the FOLD of your c/s as shown above and then run it through the Big Shot Machine.  This will give you a folded Top Note… this is very similar to the folded Scallop cards HERE.
