Fun Fold Card

Stampin’ UP! Something Fancy Bay Window Fun Fold Video Tutorial

January 25, 2023

I made my first Bay Window Fun Fold! I was happy to showcase the beautiful Stampin’ UP! Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper with the Stampin’ UP! Something Fancy Bundle.

It folds flat… and then tucks into the side label to create a “bay window” effect.

Here is a video showing how I made it:

As seen in the video, place the folded score line against the right edge of inside panel. Then lay the 3/8″ portion down on the inside DSP and put dimensionals along the edge. Then center the sentiment label on the DSP on top of the dimensionals. I didn’t have the gold foil strip on yet in the photo in case you are confused!

It was great to use 6 x 6 DSP for this with just a nice 2″ x 6″ piece leftover:)

Here’s the inside of the each card.

How fun and easy is this fold? I love it! What a great way to showcase DSP with this kind of design. Make sure to cut in line with the design if it has one especially if it is a landscape pattern.

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored on 11″ side at 3/8″, 1-7/8″, 3-5/8′, 5-1/8″ and 5-1/2″, DSP cut from left to right at 1-1/4″x 4″, 1-1/2″ x 4″, 1-1/4″ x 4″, and 1-1/2″ x 4″ as seen in video, (2) 1/4″ x 4″ Gold Foil Strips, Inside panel: 3-1/4″ x 4″, scraps for sentiment labels

Stampin’ Up! Double Gatefold Card Video Tutorial

May 13, 2020

Have any DSP lying around? LOL..I know you do!
A Double Gatefold Card is a great way to showcase that hoarded paper! Give it a try…

I was inspired by two cards you will see in the video made by my friend, Linda Heller.
So easy to do…check it out.

I love the Parisian Dies- the word “merci” and “amour” are wonderful with the Effeil Tower die. What about me saying “amore” in the video! Mixing up Italian with French…lol. But then, I did mix French on the outside with the English sentiment inside!

Remember this card with the Effiel Tower on it?

The Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper is so lovely…especially this pattern:)

The Petal Pink and Pool Party are so pretty together.

February 2020

Oh golly, the Bonanza Buddies are so fun!
I made a fun fold that was so easy to do with a lot of pizzazz thanks to the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies and the So Sentimental Bundles!

Here is a video showing how to make it with a neat tip to get more out of the DSP die cuts!

 

The Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle worked wonderfully with the festive Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies Bundle. You can use so many colors on this card since the DSP has such a wide range of colors! You can also switch out the toucan with a lion or a koala bear.

The Stitched Shapes Dies paired well with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. A stitched oval would have looked great, too.
