Birthday Card, Fun fold, handmade cards, Stampin'Up

A super cute birthday fun fold

It has been a busy couple of weeks… you know when life takes a path of its own? Thank fully, I am able to take sometime and make some cards. This super cute fun fold is the perfect card for my nephew’s coming birthday. So, gather your crafting supplies and let’s have some fun.

As you might have figured out… I found this fold on… (drumroll) Pinterest, from a French SP demosntrator. Here is her blog Papier, ciseaux et cie.com She has all her measurements in centimeters.

I absolutely love when you have a collection of papers that can help you tell a story in a card. I know I have said this before, but the moment I saw the Happy Forest Friends Suite, I knew I had to get it. It is so adorable and whimsical, right up my ally.

Creating a super cute tower card

This card is definitely a perfect choice to make anyone’s day and, that’s why we send cards, right? I saw this card for the first time about 5 months ago on a Facebook group. I fell in love with it, but was not able to look into it before it was gone from my feed. Well, it popped up on my Pinterest a couple of weeks ago! This time, I made sure I paid attention to the details of the card and was able to create a template, which you can download for free below.
