X is for Box

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ve been sharing a variety of cards for every occasion. Today’s card is a fun fold boX card. I love to make fun fold cards and this one is not only different, it’s really quick & easy to make!

Stampin Up! Perennial Essence and Beauty Abounds fun fold box card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Materials and Measurements

  • Card base:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Mossy Meadow cardstock scored at 2, 4, 6, and 8.
  • Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper – Cut 4 strips 1 3/4 x 5 1/4.  (I stamped my sentiment on one of the panels. You could use whisper white cardstock if your DSP is too busy or dark.)
  • Basic Black cardstock to cut Butterfly Beauty dies.

I used a strip of Tear & Tape along the 1/2 inch side to adhere the box. The butterfly dies are attached to the card with a glue dot on each butterfly along the center fold line. This card will display nicely on a shelf.  I love how it looks like the butterflies are floating.  Here’s more views of this fun card.

Simply Scored Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 April Blog Hop

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!

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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.

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Impossible Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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!

It’s a Beautiful Day!

It is a beautiful day!  And the Share What You Love Suite is a wonderful way to make beautiful cards! I love this suite! Have you picked out a favorite bundle yet? *The Bundles are exclusive to the early release and only available May 1-31st. If you missed my previous post showcasing the bundles, click HERE. I bought the “Gotta Have It All Bundle” because I had to have the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Lovely Floral Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder!  Plus I got 3 FREE items with the bundle (an exclusive stamp set, very vanilla envelopes, and an embellishment kit)!  What a deal!  You get Free items with each bundle and the bigger the bundle, the more free items you get. I shared some In Color cards using the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder yesterday.  If you missed it, click HERE.  (*You’ll want to check out the FREE gift I’m giving way with the new In Colors!) Today I’m sharing another card I made using the products from the Share What You Love Suite.
Stampin Up Love What You Do All Occasion card idea from the Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
 I was inspired by a Dawn Griffith’s card sketch to create this card.  I chose the colors from the gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love the color combination of Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake. Check out this new ribbon…a super soft velvet in Rich Razzleberry!  This card has lots of layers and a front pocket to tuck in your special sentiment.  Here’s the details:
Card Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4  (Rich Razzleberry)
Layer 1 – 4 x 5 1/4 (Crumb Cake)
Layer 2 – 3 3/4 x 5 (Whisper White)
DSP and cardstock diagonal pieces – 3 3/4 x 3 cut at a diagonal
Sentiment insert – 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 (Whisper White), 2 3/4 x 4 (Rich Razzleberry)
Apply adhesive to the sides and bottom of the diagonal pieces and adhere to the Whisper White layer. *Make sure you do not add adhesive on the diagonal so you can insert the sentiment in the pocket. Adhere this layer to the crumb cake and wrap ribbon before adhering to the card base. The sentiment and flower are from the Love What You Do Stamp Set.
Share What You Love
The flower is stamped in Crumb Cake and stamped off once.  The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink. I love that this sentiment can be used for many different occasions (birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, etc.).  I am giving this card to my mom for Mother’s Day. I like that the sentiment can come out and you can put a gift card behind. What a nice surprise!
Stampin Up Love What You Do All Occasion card idea from the Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I think my mom will love the colors in this card…she has these colors throughout her home. I love to make coordinating envelopes…a fun sneak peek at what’s inside!
