Pop Up Fun Fold Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared my new favorite fun fold card I made for Easter. Today I have a photo tutorial for you along with another version I made for Mother’s Day.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet and Word Wishes Mother's Day fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This beautiful bouquet will last forever! I used the same fun fold “formula” along with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper and Word Wishes Dies that I used on my Easter card.  The flowers are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and die cut with the Bouquet Bunch Dies. I love this sweet color combination: Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, and Whisper White (with a touch of green).

Here’s the Easter card I shared yesterday.

I made 25 of these Easter cards so I worked “assembly line style”.  I cut, scored, stamped, and die cut everything, then put it all together. Here’s a look at all the pieces (*minus the Word Wishes die cut, “Happy Easter”).

Stampin' Up Hold on to Hope and Crosses of Hope fun fold card pieces for Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s all the details:

Stamps & Dies

  • Hold On To Hope Stamp Set
  • Crosses of Hope Dies
  • A Wish for Everything Bundle (A Wish for Everything Stamp set and Word Wishes Dies)

Materials & Measurements

  • Card base (Purple Posy cardstock): 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 scored at 2 3/4
  • DSP Layer on card base: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Middle layer (Purple Posy cardstock): 2 x 4 1/2 scored at 1/2, 2 1/4, 4
  • DSP Layer in middle (Best Dressed floral pattern): 1 7/8 x 3 1/2
  • Curved front panel (Purple Posy): 1 1/4 x 6 1/2 scored at 1/2 on each end
  • Whisper White:  (2)  2 1/2 x 4 for stamped panels on the back of the card, scraps to stamp sentiment, stamp and die cut flowers, and die cut Happy Easter
  • Sparkle Glimmer Paper: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 (to die cut cross) Color with Highland Heather reinker and Aqua Painter
  • Purple Posy: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 (to die cut cross)
  • Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon: ~5″ Color with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend
  • Highland Heather Classic Ink

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish card base and front strip along the score lines. Apply liquid glue to the tabs on the front strip and adhere to the card base on each side.
  2. Adhere the DSP panel to the back of the card sliding the bottom under the front panel so it hides the side tabs. Gently fold the card base along the score line making sure you don’t crease the front panel. You can see how it “pops out”.
  3. Adhere DSP to the middle panel. Fold along the center score line to crease the DSP. Fold in the edges & glue these to the back of the card laying down completely flat and in line with the center fold when gluing down the tabs.
  4. Glue the floral die cut on the front of the card along the left side. Adhere stamped panels on the back of the card.
  5. Adhere Happy Easter die cut sentiment along front piece.
  6. Paint the Sparkle Glimmer die cut cross with Highland Heather ink (put a few drops of reinker in the lid of the stamp pad) using an Aqua Painter. Let dry then adhere to the solid cross.  You could use a fine-tip glue pen but, I prefer to use liquid glue and apply with a sponge dauber on a silicone craft mat. Add a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of the cross.
  7. Color the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. This is so quick & easy to do!!!! Adhere ribbon to the cross using Mini Glue Dots. (I put two on the back to hold the ribbon and 1 on the front.)Use Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends to color the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to make any color ribbon you want - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  8. Put 3 Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the center fold of the middle layer to adhere the cross.
  9. Stamp Hold on to Hope on 1/2 x 2 1/2 Whisper White strip and cut apart.  Adhere to front of card as shown.

The base of this card is just 1/4 sheet of cardstock which makes it easy to fold flat to fit in the envelope to mail.

When the recipient opens the card it pops out and stands up for a wonderful display! (*The crease is the card base makes the front come forward like you’re reading/holding a book.)

Hold On To Hope for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals BLog Hop Badge APril 2020

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! While the COVID 19 pandemic is adding stress to our lives, we Pals hope this blog hop will help to lift your spirits. Let us inspire you to take a creative break and relax for a little while. This month our theme is “Special Occasions” where we have made a project for just about any occasion you can think of! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I love fun fold cards and I have a new favorite for you today called a pop out fun fold.

Stampin Up Best Dressed Hold On To Hope fun fold Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp - Jeanie

Normally I would be on my way to Massachusetts this week to celebrate Easter with family. I have four sisters and a brother and even though we live in 4 different states we usually manage to get together for special occasions and holidays. I’m usually in charge of ~25 table favors for everyone. Because everyone is “sheltering in place” this year I decided to send my mom and siblings this Easter card.  The sentiments from the Hold On To Hope Stamp set couldn’t be more appropriate this year!

I stamped the hope sentiment then cut it apart for the front of the card.  I also used several of the other stamps on the back of the card. Stampin' Up! Hold On To Hope fun fold Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

There’s even room to add a personal message. This stamp set also has coordinating dies, Cross of Hope, which I used to cut out the layered crosses and flowers on the front. I have used these dies for many different occasion cards (sympathy, wedding, new baby, baptism, Easter).

I have many fond memories of Easter.  My mom would make all our Easter dresses and my Nanna would buy us new white ankle socks and Mary Jane patent leather shoes (which I loved to use to tap dance on the blacktop).  My dad would always buy the girls corsages to wear to church.  We hunted for bags of jellybeans and it wasn’t who found the most bags, it was who had the most jellybeans (there were different amounts in each bag) so no one ate any until you counted them! Here’s a couple of old photos of me with my siblings. (I’m the youngest in the first photo and third in the line up.)

I hope they will enjoy their special Easter cards this year. If you would like to make this fun fold card be sure to check back tomorrow.  I’ll have another version of this fun fold card along with the tutorial. (*Subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out when I post.) You can view the list of products I used below.

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! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 13th, when we will say “Goodbye to January Mini and 2019 Annual Catalog and/or Hello to 2020 Annual Catalog.” The Design Team will showcase their favorites from the retiring catalogs or new products from the new catalog. Don’t miss the fun! And, until then, please stay safe.

N is for Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes

Welcome back to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes found on page 19 in the Occasions Catalog.  These are easy to overlook but you don’t want to miss out on these little gems!  I have been on a roll making a bunch of these note cards. They are small and narrow and perfect for little notes to put in your child’s lunchbox, husband’s briefcase, or to give with homemade baked goods to a friend or neighbor.

My husband does most of the cooking in our house but I enjoying baking.  A few of my favorites are homemade strawberry bread, apple bread, and banana nut bread. Many friends brought us meals during my recovery and I thought I would bake some breads to show my appreciation. The Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is perfect for these adorable thank you cards to go with my loaves of bread.  The 2 1/4″ Circle Punch makes a quick envelope liner to coordinate with the card!

The sentiment from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set is perfect for the inside. There’s still plenty of room to add a personal message.

I also made some note cards to tuck in with customer orders. The leaves on the thank you stamp from A Good Day coordinates nicely with Petal Garden Designer Series Paper. I colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.

You get 20 Thick Whisper White cards and 20 envelopes for just $8.  They are really quick & easy to decorate. You can get 4 card fronts from just 1 piece of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper! Stampin’ Up!’s CEO, Sara Douglas, did a Facebook Live video showcasing a quick & easy way to cut 6 x 6 DSP to get 4 card fronts! You can Click Here to see her video. I stepped mine up a little with a layer of coordinating cardstock measuring 2 1/4 x 4 1/4. I added some ribbon and then stamped and punched the sentiment using the new 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch from the Occasions catalog. I popped up the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like to challenge myself to use every little piece of DSP and so I used the leftover 2 x 2 piece to make this Easter card.

I cut the leftover piece of DSP in half so I had two 1″ x 2″ pieces.  I added a 2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White which I used to stamp the bunny from A Good Day Stamp Set and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I added Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon above and below the white piece. This little bunny is so cute! I added a little color with Stampin’ Blends.

My last card is a sweet treat holder for St. Patrick’s Day.

I found these chocolates at our local “Candy Kitchen” Shop. They have delicious homemade chocolates! I used some retired Emerald Envy DSP and punched a circle through the top layers using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I adhered the candy with a glue dot on the inside. The sentiment on the front is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the inside sentiment is from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set.
