Autumn Goodness…Fall Birthday Card #5

Stampin' Up! Autumn Goodness Impossible fun fold birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Today’s card is for my brother.  When I saw the Autumn Goodness Bundle I knew immediately I had to have it! It reminded me of the wheelbarrow that my brother gave me years ago.  It’s old and worn but I still decorate it for the different seasons throughout the year. It provided the inspiration for my card and treat holder.

This is called an “Impossible” fun fold but it’s really very simple to do with just a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock for the base . This card was created using the Autumn Goodness Bundle. I love all the dies included in this set (especially the picket fence)!

The Autumn Goodness Bundle includes the Autumn Goodness Stamp Set and the Autumn Wheelbarrow Dies. I love how the wheelbarrow and fence dies cut and emboss at the same time.

To create the coordinating treat holder, I cut two wheelbarrows and made a simple box to hold some pumpkin candy.

The box is created with a 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 piece of crumb cake cardstock scored at 1/2″ on all 4 sides. I’ve created many of these simple boxes in the past in different sizes. You just fold and burnish along the score lines, snip along the score line on each end and adhere the sides. Quick & easy! Then just assemble the pieces to the wheelbarrow and glue one to each side of the box.  I think my brother will really like his card and pumpkin treat!

This is the last of the fall birthday cards I created this month. Next month I will need to make cards for my husband, daughter, sister, and friends! Check back for more inspiration and some fun gift ideas! If you missed my previous fall birthday cards this month you can click on the links below.

Gathered Leaves…Fall Birthday Card #4

Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays, Gathered Leaves, and Plaid Tidings fall birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Today’s card showcases the Gathered Leaves Dies and Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper with a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays on the front. This is a fun fold card which is hard to tell from the front. Here’s a look at it opened.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Leaves and Itty Bitty Birthdays Plaid Tidings birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
You can stamp any sentiment on the front or inside. I sometimes like to add a handwritten note inside. This card uses one sheet of the Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to make the card and decorate the envelope. I love to design cards where there is no waste!

Happiest of Birthdays…Fall Birthday Card #1

I have a lot of friends and family members with fall birthdays! Over the next week or so I thought I would share some of the birthday cards I’ve made. Today’s card is for my friend Susan…today is her birthday! Many of you know her from her blog, simplestampin.com. I’d love for you to leave her a comment below to wish her a happy birthday. Here’s the card I made for her.

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays and Gathered Leaves fun fold fall birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love fun fold cards. This one is called a bridge fold and it is really quick & easy to create! I used the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set and Gathered Leaves Dies along with the the gorgeous Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. Here’s a peek at the different patterned papers.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper - to order visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Coordinating colors: Cajun Craze, copper foil, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, gold foil, Mint Macaron, Very Vanilla

Here’s the details to create this fun fold card:

Measurements:

Card Base (Mint Macaron): 4 1/4 x 8 scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, 6 3/4 on the long side.
DSP (Gilded Autumn): Cut 4 1×4″ strips
Very Vanilla: cut 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 4 to stamp sentiment on front/back.
Bridge: 5 1/2 x width of choice. Mine is 3/4 and has a layer of copper foil and Mint Macaron Basket Weave ribbon (for a bit of texture).

Directions:

Adhere the 4 DSP strips to the card panels. Stamp the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink and adhere to the center panel. The bridge piece is adhered to the side panels. Cut the leaves from Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.(*I love how these dies cut and emboss at the same time!)  Add the acorn trinket to the linen bow and adhere it with a glue dot. The pumpkin is fussy cut from another pattern in the Gilded Autumn DSP and adhered with a glue dot.

I stamped a sentiment from So Sentimental on the back.

The card folds flat to fit in an envelope.
