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.
