Fun Fold Swap Card from Susan

I’m excited to share another beautiful card from my Fun Fold Card Swap! You are in for a treat as I share each of these cool fun folds. The collection of cards I’ll be sharing might not have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, and techniques. Let the inspiration continue…

Susan made a Fun Fold Lever card using the Sheltering Tree Stamp set.  This card reminds me of my childhood…I always rode my bike everywhere! I love the way she carried the grass and flowers across the bottom of the inside piece.  There’s still plenty of room to stamp or write a message on the inside with this fun fold design.

I love the green and red color combination with Early Espresso. The Sheltering Tree Stamp set is photopolymer which makes it easy to see when doing two-step stamping like Susan did on her card. (Click on the stamp image to purchase from my online store.)

  1. I was the lucky recipient who got your card, Susan, and I love that you used Sheltering Tree, one of my favorite sets. I also loved the gender-neutral color choice and the fact that the envelope was so perfectly stamped to match the card. Your fold was precise and crisp and the stamping was impeccable. (I confess that I “wobble” sometimes & your work was a joy to behold.) Thanks so much for participating in the swap~your card made my day!

    1. So happy you like it, Linda. Sheltering tree is one of my favorite sets too and the lever fold is a great fun fold, so it was a perfect fit for me. Your kind comments made my day. Thank you.

  2. Wow ! Susan your card is great for a wonderful example of FUN FOLDS ! Love your color choices !
    Love this stamp set . Love your card !!

  3. Hi Susan & Jeanie, Sheltering Trees is one of my favorite stamp sets. I love the Fun Fold but especially the inside of the card and the envelope. Three great ideas to keep and CASE. Love the whole package.

    1. Thanks, Nancy. One quick idea if you’re CASing–cut two cards at the same time and switch the colors of the squares to go in the lever part. You’ll still be using the same ink colors on the art pieces so you can knock two cards out at one time!

  4. Beautiful card, Susan! I love your color combo and this fold is perfect for this stamp set. Your continuation to the inside was very clever. Great job!

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Mary Ann. That tree does fit perfectly on that square, doesn’t it?

  5. Susan… what a wonderful card.. Love all the elements of this card ..
    Jeanne.. thank you for sharing..

  6. I really want to make this card. I love everything about it. I’m not sure which colors she used, so I’ll ask. Is her red, Cherry Cobbler, her green, Pear Pizzazz and her bike and flowers looked like Real Red? I’m going to try this and let you know how I did. TFS!

    1. Can’t wait to hear how your card turns out, Gloria. I really don’t remember what colors I used but that’s the beauty of Stampin Up! Products, just use the same color paper and ink and it’ll all match! (If you try it, see the tip on Nancy’s comment above.)

  7. Oh man, this is wonderful as was Jeanie’s version of the Lever Fold! Love all the elements and I don’t believe I have ever noticed anyone using the flowers before on a card. The colors are a perfect choice for this card. I didn’t buy this set but we used it in card club. This card wants me to revisit that set and maybe purchase so I can CASE this. I love how you continue the stamping to the inside and then that envelope! Susan, such a clever lever fold card!

    Thanks Jeanie for organizing this swap and showcasing all the wonderful cards!

    1. Your comment makes me blush–coming from the talented Chris R. From Iowa! Thanks! This is one of my all-time favorite sets. It’s really versatile and great for all seasons and occasions.

  8. Thanks to you, Jeanie, for showcasing my card and saying such nice things about it. Your fun fold series is right up there with the Sheltering Tree In my favorites book! Can’t wait to see more of the swap cards…I know there were lots of lovelies and appreciate you giving all of us the love of being featured on your fabulous blog! ♥️

  9. I had fun with the leaver card but I am having trouble getting it to open properly. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
