R is for Rocker Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. I am over the top in love with today’s fun fold cards…they Rock!

I didn’t know what I was going to make for a fun fold for R and then Chris R. suggested a rocker fold. Well Chris R., YOU ROCK!  This fold is definitely FUN!!!!! I can’t stop playing with it and watching it rock.  I made a video for you…don’t blink or you’ll miss it! LOL

How sweet is this?! I needed a baby card and the Moon Baby Stamp Set was a perfect choice for this type of fold.  I started with a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Sky cardstock scored at 4 1/4.  I used an old scrapbooking circle cutter to cut the base but you could use a bowl and trace a half circle on the fold.

I embossed the front using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. I stamped the image on Shimmery White cardstock and used the Aqua Painter to watercolor. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the circle. I’ve shared before how much I love and use the Grid Paper. You can see in the photo below I used the grid paper to line up my card and make sure the circle didn’t go above 4 1/4″ so it would fit in a standard envelope.

I added some clouds cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Up & Away Thinlits Dies. Then I fussy cut a dazzling star and attached it with a glue dot.

I embossed the envelope to match and this sweet card was complete.

I couldn’t stop after just one of these fun folds.  My second card is a note card and will fit in the basic note card envelope. I was considering making a sailboat for my next card but we had the most delicious watermelon today so I decided to go with this card instead.

  1. I am really reveling in the reveal! You are on a roll! “WE” did good! I am so glad I thought about that baby stamp set for the card as it turned out better than I imagined! That little glimmery star and those clouds just made it so special and then the embossing folder, which I totally forgot about, made the whole card really rock and roll! Love it! The watermelon card is just too much fun with the couple of lady bugs on top. Just yummy! Great tip about using the grid paper so you don’t make it too big to fit in an envelope!

    Sure glad I can do my ABCs backwards as I think I am behind again. Again, Jeanie, you rocked that fold idea! I love it!
