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.

A twist on the planter fun fold card.

This “planter” fun fold card is definitely a card you need to try! The version I saw was focused on the “planter” part of the card… I figure we could spin it a little and get creative. I can only imagine the happiness it will bring to the recipient. Let’s learn together how to make this card. Check out the video tutorial for the instructions. Below you will find the free pdf tutorial.

I made 2 different versions of this card, using products from the Mini Catalog. The card on the video uses the Kindest Gnomes bundle and Storybook Gnomes paper. These 2 products belong to the Storybook Gnomes Suite, a super fun and playful suite in the mini catalog. I love the the bundle can be used for all seasons. The second card is a Halloween card. This card uses a combination of last years products and the Scary Cute Bundle.
