Welcome to the Pals’ May Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I love fun fold cards! I have been wanting to make this one for some time now but, the name, “Impossible Fold”, sounded intimidating. Let me just say, this card is anything but impossible! In fact, it is a really simple fun fold to make!
I used the Free As a Bird Stamp Set and and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper which will be available in the new annual catalog when it debuts June 4th. Demonstrators were able to see and play with new products at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event. This suite was used for one of the make ‘n take projects. I like to challenge myself and use the make ‘n take products to make something a little different.
This fun fold starts with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardstock. A few simple scores (4 to be exact) turns what would be a flat card in to a cool pop up!
I will share the full color tutorial with directions and measurements on my blog tomorrow. Make sure you subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out! Here’s a look at the side view.
I love the new scalloped lace trim too! (I’ll share how I made the fun banner tomorrow.) I had fun coloring the birds with the Stampin’ Blends. You could just as easily watercolor with ink or use Stampin’ Up!’s watercolor pencils. Just think of all the color possibilities for these cute little birds!
This fun fold card would look great propped up on a desk or bookcase. Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the photo tutorial so you can make one for someone special!
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 12, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Anything with Wings” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Good Morning Jeanie,
Great fold card. I’m looking very forward to tomorrow’s instructions too. Very nice coloring too.
Have a blessed day.
Wait til you see how easy it is to make! I’m wishing I had tried it sooner. Perhaps I’ll put it in my next monthly card kit!!!
Your card is gorgeous and makes this technique fold look very elegant!
Thank you Jackie!
As usual you knocked it out of the park my friend! Awesome job 😘
Thanks Jill! It was so much easier than I thought!!! Kuddos to you for stepping out of your comfort zone and giving fun folds a try!!!
That is quite a presentation of a card and fold. Nicely done!!
Thanks Vicki! I want to make so many more! It’s fun and easy!!!
You are the Queen of Fancy Folds. So it’s no surprise you chose an “impossible” one and rocked it!
Who knew it was anything but impossible?!!!! Thanks Rosanne!
Jeanie, your “impossible fold” is amazing! It shows off the new Bird suite beautifully.
Thanks Su! I love this new suite!!!
I never see a fun fold card without wondering “How would Jeanie do it?” Super job on this project~that’s taking a make and take up a notch for sure. TFS
Thanks Linda! I love all the fun folds on the hop today! Got a few more I need to try now!!!

Thanks Karen! I’m practicing coloring! Its so relaxing! You will enjoy the birds. Cant wait to try different colors!
This paper and stamp set work perfectly with the fancy fold! I love it all!

Wow, Jeanie! I can’t wait to try this wonderful card fold! And your presentation of the bird ballad suite of products is “to die for”! Well done, Pal!
What a great idea to challenge yourself to do something different with the make and takes. You did a great job and came up with an adorable card.
