Fun Folds

It's a Wonderful World Tent Card

Hello to you!  I have a beautiful card for you today.  It's a tent fun fold card using the Wonderful World designer paper from Sale-a-Bration.  Like you, I cruise Pinterest and other sites to see what others have made.  My friend Kaye turned me on to a video by Lisa Curcio.  I just had to try it.

Wonderful World DSP Card  Tent Fold  Fussy Cut  Close Up  Sale-a-Bration  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Lisa's card showed a bird house.  I really am not sure I can explain how to make this card.  I'm not going to make a video when Lisa Curcio Lisa's Stamp Studio has one done so well.  She is a master in her explanations.  I'll add her video.

I used So Saffron card stock for this card.  The base is 4 1/4 x 11.  It is scored at 5 1/2.  Lisa tells about the other scores needed.

I used the Stylish Shapes dies to make the holes in the center.

The Double Oval Punch was used for the sentiment.  The Peaceful Moments stamp set was used.  Use Orchid Oasis for the ink.

Embellish  with the 2022-2024 In Color Baker's Twine Pack.

Let me share a few more photos of this card.

The back of the card is used as the message area.  Again the words are from Peaceful Moment.  Another flower from the Wonderful World is fussy cut and added.

Here is Lisa's video.

 

I think when I used this fold again that I will add to the piece that holds the front and back together.  I'm thinking it would look better at maybe 4 inches long.  I also think I would make it wider, maybe three inches with scores every 3/4 inches.  This would allow the card to open a bit wider.

Thanks for joining me.  I think this is a beautiful card.

Hippest Hippos Z Fun Fold Card

I have a Z Fun Fold card for you today.  What's even more fun is that this card uses the Sale-a-Bration free items Happiest Hippos stamp set and the Hippos dies.  You can earn these with a $50 purchase.  To get them both, you would need a $100 order (each needs a $50 order).  Here's my cute card!

Hippest Hippos Z Fold Card  Awash in Beauty DSP  Hippo dies  Paper Piecing  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I love this paper with the hippos as well.  This comes from the Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper.  My little hippo is going to dance right through the flowers.  She might tiptoe through the tulips!  

The base of this card is Blushing Bride.  I don't know if you have ever noticed, but I don't use a lot of pink.  It's not my favorite.  This DSP gives me the opportunity to go pink.  Elephants like pink you know.  The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4.  Fold the card in the center and then fold the next section back away from the center.

Cut a piece of Blushing Bride that is 1 x 8 1/2.  Score this piece exactly the same.  You will turn it over and use it backwards from the card.

Hippest Hippos Z Fold Card  Awash in Beauty DSP  Hippo dies  Paper Piecing  Adhesive Sheets   Classic Matte Dots  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The designer paper is cut one piece at 2 x 5 3/8.  This goes on the folded back piece.  The other is cut to 2 1/4 x 5 3/8.  It goes on the inside of the card to the right.

Cut a piece of Basic White that is 1 7/8 x 5 3/8 for the rest of the inside.

For the Hippo cut the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies in white and a coordinating scalloped circle from Blushing Bride.  The scalloped circle is from the Layering Circles dies.  Adhere done stamping and coloring the hippo.  Stamp the hippo in Memento Black.  I colored here using the Gray Granite Blends combo and the Flirty Flamingo Blends combo.  I didn't go into any extra shading because more likely this card will go to a child.  

I used the paper piecing technique for the skirt.  Stamp that area on the designer paper, also from Awash in Beauty DSP.  Cut it out with snips and then glue in place.

The umbrella from the Hippo dies was cut in Basic Black and then the top of the umbrella was cut from the same designer paper.  Glue to the umbrella and glue to the white circle.  Some of this does stick out beyond the circle so be careful where you put the glue.

Cut the plants from Old Olive card stock and the flowers from Flirty Flamingo.  Hint:  I put some Adhesive Sheet to the back of the card stock.  Peel it off after cutting and you have stickers!  Easy!

I am loving using the Hippest Hippo stamp set and the Hippo dies.  Just remember that Sale-a-Bration items are while supplies last.  If you want these I wouldn't wait to order them!

Happier Than Happy Bundle and Fun Fold

Love a fun fold?  Love an easy fun fold even more?  I've got one that looks hard, but it's not.  We often find that, don't we?  The Happier Than Happy Bundle caught my attention right away when I first saw our new annual catalog.  Remember, I have granddaughters.  Their parents have assigned them an animal when they were born.  Hazel is a fox.

Happier Than Happy Standing Card  Happy Forest dies  Happy Forest Friends DSP  Fun Fold  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I'm also using the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper that goes along with the suite.  It's just so cute.

For this card begin with a base of Sahara Sand that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 1, 2, 5.  You'll need another piece of Sahara Sand cut to 3 1/4 x 8 1/2.  Score this one at 4 1/4.

On the big card, fold the first fold at 1 inch down and the 2 inch fold goes up to make a small mountain.  The next fold goes down.  That larger area opens to the inside of the card.

Happier Than Happy Card  Happy Forest dies  Happy Forest Friends DSP  Fun Fold  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

You can see here the basic fold from the side.  We'll add our designer paper now.  The very front small area has paper measuring 1 1/8 x 2 3/4.  You will need two of these as one goes on the inside of the card.

For the larger area between the 2 and 5 inch score lines gets 2 pieces of DSP that measure 1 1 x 2 x 2 7/8.  These go on each end.  

A piece of the trees DSP goes on the front of the small extra card.  That measures 3 x 4.  Directionality counts here so watch out how you cut.

On this small card the hello comes from the Artistically Inked stamp set.  Stamp in Soft Suede ink.  Cut some trees from Old Olive card stock.  I used three.  Use the Happy Forest dies.

Stamp the bear in Soft Suede and the fox in Cajun Craze on Basic White scraps.  Cut these out with the coordinating dies.  Add the bear to the small card front with dimensionals.  Add the fox.  It will have dimensionals on the left.  Use glue where the fox overlaps the bear.

Fold the large card.  Glue the front of the small card to the center of the front small fold.  Watch where you put your glue.  Now with the large card folded, turn everything over carefully.  Glue the back of the small card to the back of the large base.  Notice that part of the card will extend up over the other.  Again, watch where you put the glue.  You don't want to glue the card shut.

Happier Than Happy  Happy Forest dies  Happy Forest Friends DSP  Fun Fold  Inside of Card  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For the inside you'll need a piece of Basic White cut to 2 7/8 x 5 3/8.  Add the small strip of designer paper to the bottom.  You might want to add a few extra Old Olive trees inside.

Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper Host Fun Fold Card

The Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper is way in the back of the annual catalog.  It's one of the items available if you have Host dollars to spend.  You earn Host benefits by spending at least $150.  This paper is a great value.  There are 48 sheets of 12 x 12 double sided paper.  That's 4 each of 12 designs.  WOW!  With all that paper you need a card that uses it well.  Here is my card for today.

Design a Daydream DSP  Fun Fold Card  Scalloped Contours dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Start with a base of Blackberry Bliss cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Cut your designer paper to 5 1/4 x 5 3/4, score at 1 3/4.  Fold the short fold toward the inside of the card front.  That's all there is to the fold!  So easy.

Design a Daydream DSP  Fun Fold  Scalloped Contours dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

You will need another piece of Blackberry Bliss measuring 4 by 5 1/2.  Score this at 2 3/4 and fold.  This piece will be added to the center of the card base with the fold to the right.  That's the opposite of our usual fold.  Make sure the designer paper fold is open for this.

For the outside of the Blackberry insert cut a rectangle using the Scalloped Rectangles dies.  Use the third smallest.  Use Old Olive.  Add another piece of patterned paper that measures 1 7/8 x 3 1/4.

The saying is from the Cottage Rose stamp set.  Stamp it in Versamark on a Blackberry Bliss scrap and then emboss using the white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powder collection.  Cut this out using the Stylish Shapes dies.  Add a little Stampin' Seal under where your label will be.  Add some of the Linen Thread there using the Seal to stick it down.  Add dimensionals to the ends so that they will not be on top of the thread and add the label.  Mine sticks out over the front, but you can place it anywhere you like.

Embellish with the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

For the inside add another rectangle cut in Basic White.

Gift Card Holder with Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper

Today I have a very simple gift card holder using the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper.  I must say that I cased this card from Sandy Herman.  Sandy is one of my Luv 2 Create team members.  She shared a different card using this layout in one of our team meetings.  I really liked it.  This is my version of the fun fold gift card.

Gift Card Holder  Fern EF  Pretty Prints DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Start with a base of  Coastal Cabana measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Next you'll need a piece of Basic White that measures 4 x 5 1/4.  Run this through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the base.

Cut another piece of Coastal Cabana to 3 1/4 x 1/4.  Glue to the center of the white layer.

Cut a piece of the Bermuda Bay/Coastal Cabana designer paper to 3 x 12.  Score at 4 and 8.  The middle section of this paper will go in the middle of the Coastal Cabana layer.  Bend the end sections toward the middle.  For the section to the far left.  Use the Label Me Lovely punch to punch an opening from the top and centered.   This will allow the gift card to be added and taken out more easily.

Gift Card Holder  Fern EF  Pretty Prints DSP  Open Pic  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

It's hard to see from this picture, but the punch has been made here.  Use Tear & Tape to adhere this layer to the center layer.  Put the tape along the bottom and to the right side only in the center section.  DO NOT PUT TEAR & TAPE ON THE LEFT SIDE.  If you do the gift card will not fit.

To decorate the right side I cut a stem from the Forever Flourishing dies in Basic White card stock.  You might want to add some Adhesive Sheets to the back of the white CS.  Then you'll be able to peel and stick.  Close the right section.

Gift Card Holder  Fern EF  Pretty Prints DSP  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

You'll need a piece of Basic White cut to 2 3/4 x 4.  Stamp the fern in Coastal Cabana.  Some are stamped off first.  This stamp is from the Nature's Prints stamp set.  The saying in the middle is from the same set.  Stamp it using Bermuda Bay ink.   Cut this piece with the Scallop Contours dies.  Add in the center with dimensionals.

That's all there is to this card.  Easy peasy!
