Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s fun fold card is quite different, a Quarter Fold. It’s quick & easy to make and you fold it like you would a packing box.
This card showcases the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. Today is your last chance to get this paper before it retires. The bright fun colors of this card just scream birthday to me. I used the Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set (also retiring) to stamp my sentiment. This has been one of my favorite stamp sets. It has cool fonts and lots of sentiments for tons of versatility!
To make this fun quarter fold card you need to start with 2 pieces of cardstock (4 1/4 x 11, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2). Trim a sliver (1/16″) off the long end of each piece so the widths are actually 4 3/16 x 11 and 5 7/16 x 8 1/2. This will allow the cards to fit together and close easier. Score the 4 1/4 x 11 cardstock at 2 3/4 from each end. Score the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cardstock at 2 1/8 from each end. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the two pieces of cardstock together, lining up the edges with the score lines. (It doesn’t matter which one in inside.)
Fold on each of the score lines and crease using a bone folder. Decorate with DSP or cardstock measuring 2 x 2 5/8.
I used the pansy punch to cut a flower from melon mambo cardstock. I added a White Perfect Accent in the middle and attached it with glue dots.
Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock for the inside. I used the Stylized Birthday stamp and Tempting Turquoise ink. The little flowers are from the Designer Tin of Tags Stamp set that I used on the front of the card.
Fold the card as you would close a packing box. Fold in the left side, fold up the bottom, fold in the right side, then tuck the left corner of the top flap underneath the left side panel.
This card would be great to hold confetti or a monetary gift. (No worries of it slipping out!) The card fits in a standard envelope.

Genius!! I love your cards and your blog. Thank you for sharing your talent.
Q is for Queen ! You are the QUEEN of FOLDS ! This is a fun fold for sure !! It looks fairly easy if if follow your steps . Another project to try
I love this fold! I might have to give it a whirl! Fantastic cards, Jeanie!
Again, amazing! I bet you dream of the ABC’s when you sleep….but then again – Jeanie….SLEEP????
Quite the beauty! I love them both and the fold looks simple enough (though you’ve made all of them look simple!). Thanks for the tips and directions! Great ideas!
Very cute and creative cards. Like the stamp set, too. Maybe my favorite one ever!!
Sonny nailed it, Q is for Queen and you are the queen of folds! I am still too tired to really think of some good Q words but here goes. You are quite the Ambitious one to even Begin Covering the ABCs of techniques/folds. You are quick to query for ideas when in a quandary of what to do. Love the four quadrants in this quarter fold. I wish I had a quarter (25 cents) for ever card I want to CASE of yours and I would be rich but don’t quote me on that! Well now that I am exhausted thinking about all the q words I can tell you I really like this cards and look at all the fun versions with the DSP you are all over the map with the Far East and Hispanic inspired papers. UNIQUE! Please tell me there is no quiz on any of these letters. I am sure I will be dreaming of words with XY & Z the rest of the week! So here’s a question, how do you do it all?
