This month in VIP, we made Fancy Fold Cards. I have a board on Pinterest of ideas I want to try...when I have time to get around to them. I always like to follow YouTube videos since I am a visual learner and it helps figure out if I am folding the right way! Here are the three cards we made with the tutorials we followed.
Beware, this card uses a lot of paper! And instead of stamping and die cutting like in the video, we just fussy cut out the images from the Birthday Bonanza DSP. I also skipped all the presents on the front and went with a (retired) simpler Happy Birthday die cut. For this card, the Birthday Bonanza stamp set works great, but also make sure to have some liquid glue!
This card requires 12 x 12 cardstock, but you can make two cards out of one sheet. Stampin' Up! sells 12x12 cardstock in variety packs, by color family. The only colors we sell individually are Whisper White and Very Vanilla, which I realized I was out of when I started prepping this card! So we went with a Flirty Flamingo base to coordinate with the Lily Impressions DSP, free right now with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration. The fun of this fold is having butterflies "fly off the card." So make sure you have some butterflies to add!
For this fun fold, we pulled out retired coffee stamps and paper to make a fun design. Once again, you need 12x12 cardstock for this, so we used Early Espresso. Just make sure you have a trimmer, tear & tape, and a ruler for this card!
Which fold do you like best? Post a comment below!
