My godson welcomed his first child just before the holidays. I couldn’t wait to meet him so a quick trip to Massachusetts was in order. I love to give books and it’s always fun to make a card to coordinate.
This is one of my favorite fun fold cards because it is so quick & easy to create! The challenge was I didn’t have any stamps with mice to go with the book. (How can that be???) I pulled an idea from my teaching days (and children’s author Leo Lionni) and created my own mouse with torn paper. It was fun and simple to do! I love being able to use what I have! The inside sentiment is not Stampin’ Up! but one I’ve had in my stash for years. It was perfect to go with this gift.
Here’s the details to make this fun fold:
Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 *Cut 2 3/4″ from one end.
Basic White: 2 1/2 x 4 (front), 4 x 5 1/4 (inside)
Designer Series Paper: 2 1/2 x 4, 2 x 6 (envelope flap)
Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride scraps: Die cut Stitched Stars and create mouse from torn paper.
I hope this inspires you to create something fun with what you have. You can view the list of products I used below.

The Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder really makes a great impression! I love it embossed with the Brushed Metallic cardstock! This fun fold card was one of the cards included in my Just Stampin’ Card Kit to go last month. (I always include a fun fold card in every kit to go.) As you can see this card would work for many occasions! That’s one of the cool things with my kits to go. You get everything pre cut and embossed with all the embellishments etc. and you just have to stamp a sentiment of your choice.
I even show how many different sentiments/stamp sets would work!
I really like how this fun fold opens and allows you to see the front and inside!
I even embossed the bottom of the envelope to coordinate.

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
The inspiration for my card today came from this garden photo I took many years ago.
When my son was little we planted sunflowers. All summer long he watched them grow and got so excited the taller they grew. He couldn’t wait to get dressed, run outside, and stand beside the sunflowers to see how tall they were in comparison to himself. He would report daily and tell me it was as tall as his “boo boo”, up to his knees… on up until they were over his head. He is all grown up now and started a new job this week.
I chose Celebrate Sunflowers to make a card to congratulate my son. This bundle is one of My Favorite Things from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! You can see all of My Favorite Things HERE.
My card features four of the new In Colors (Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, and Just Jade). The double Z fun fold design was perfect to showcase this “growing” sunflower. If you look at the side view you can see how it got it’s name.
I love the different sentiments and fonts in this stamp set! They are versatile and work for thank you cards and many different celebrations…birthday, graduation, job promotion, etc. The sentiment I used inside was perfect for my growing sunflower!
Check back tomorrow to see another version of this card as well as all the details to make this fun fold! *See below for a complete list of the products I used.
Here’s a fun fact about sunflowers.
