Fun Fold Cards

Flip Up & Flip Out Fun Fold

This is a fun fold card that we made last night during our Virtual Mystery Card Night!

I was determined to find a way to keep connected back in March when the lockdown was in place. My teammate and I started these virtual classes via Zoom and they have been a great addition to the classes I offer! It is great to see people that are far away or need to be more careful about where they go for personal reasons. If you are looking for an engaging and silly group of ladies to craft with virtually, we are here for YOU!

What is a Mystery Card Night? I make a card-so far they have been fun folds-and then I craft up a Power Point to share with everyone. You use your ink, paper, stamps, and embellishments that you have on hand. (doesn’t have to be current or SU) I send the Zoom meeting ID and the suggested items to have on hand to those that RSVP. I love seeing what everyone creates by the end of the class! We have a contest on my Laura’s Creative Corner FB page for a fun prize! Check my list of events for the next one! (usually once a month) We would love to have you join us!

This was a Flip Up & Flip Out fun fold that I found on On Y Go! Stamping! I loved how simple it was to follow her tutorial and how everyone would have items at home to create this for our class! The following are from her blog-why reinvent the wheel? She did a great job with these visuals!

After scoring and cutting the 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock-the rest is really just coordinating your patterned DSP with your other items. Here are the measurements I sent to the ladies that join us Friday.

Card Base: The base will be an 8 ½” x 11” piece of cardstock

Insert: light color to write on; cut one 4” x 5 ¼ ”

Card Front: Pick a color that coordinates with your DSP; cut to 4” x 5 ½ ”

DSP:  (2) pieces of one design cut 1 7/8” x 5 ½” & (2) pieces of another coordinating design cut to 1 7/8” x 5 ½”

Other pieces:  Scraps for sentiment, labels, little extras

•One set or two stamp sets •Embellishments, dies, punches, and inks of your choice •Tape, glue, dimensionals, scissors etc.

Here is a quick peek inside my card that I made! I love this Gilded Autumn Suite! The Gilded Autumn DSP has the most beautiful colors and metallic pops of color! It also includes the elegant Beautiful Autumn stamp set, coordinating Autumn Punch Pack, super sweet Acorn Trinkets, and coordinating Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon combo pack!

Easy Accordion Fun Fold

We had another Mystery Zoom Card class last night! We created an Accordion Fold that I saw on Lisa Curcio’s blog! It makes me laugh when the girls questions why they are cutting, folding, or scoring! Then they are so happy when they see their final product! We have a lot of laughs and have time to catch up or get to know any new people! You should join us on the next Mystery Zoom night! Check out my events on my website: Laura’s Stampin’ Up! website!

Here are the supplies and measurements to create your own!

Card Base: 4 ¼” x 5 ½” colored cardstock; a mat piece 4” x 5 ¼” (I used Whisper White) •Insert: 4 ¼” x 11” (Don’t Fold); Whisper White/Neutral color @ 2 ¼”x 4” •DSP:  2 pieces @ 1 ¼” x 4”; 2 pieces @ 2 ¼” x 4”, 1 piece @ ½” x 4”(I used 4 patterns from the same pack) •Inside the Insert:  1 ½ x 9 ½” – I used a color that coordinated with my base color. •Other pieces:  Scraps for sentiment. •One set or two stamp sets •Embellishments, dies, punches, and inks of your choice •Tape, glue, dimensionals, scissors etc.

1. Attach your card base (notice it is a card front only-not a folded card like usual) and mat pieces together.

2. Attach your DSP pieces to the smallest sections; then your bigger pieces.

3. Attach the Whisper White 2 ¼” x 4 to the last part of the zig zag piece.  This will be for your inside message

4. Attach the ½” x 4 piece right next to the Whisper White so they are flush.

5. Attach the zig zag piece to your card base centered.

6. Take your 9 ½” x 1 ½” piece and wrap it around the card adhering it in the front where it overlaps.  Not to tight-it’s a belly band.

7. Decorate the belly band.

Add extra focal stamps, ribbons, or embellishments!

The Flowers for All Seasons DSP pack is just gorgeous! The colors are just so vibrant and all the flowers can be used for all occasions!
