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.

Birthday Card, Fun fold, Mini Albums

Mini album card, #1

Want to learn how to make a mini album card? These cards are spectacular and and they are a wonderful gift on itself, but you can adapt to have a gift card holder, hidden messages, pictures, even a little calendar. As usual, you will find a video tutorial and a FREE PDF tutorial, that you can download, for convenience.

If you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and are interested in Stampin’ Up! supplies, I’d love to send you complimentary copies of the annual and/or the mini catologs. Simply email me HERE to let me know which catalogs you’re interested in. Please, include your mailing address in the email. You can access our digital Annual Catalog here.

Have you seen the Happy Forest friends Suite? Let’s be honest, I am a sucker for anything forest/mountain related and whimsical stamps… so, this suite was one of those I chose to get right away! Stampin’Up! did a wonderful job at creating this designer series paper. It feels like it all matches so perfectly! The cute stamp set is just adorable and I absolutely love the dies as well. I am also using the Charming Sentiments Bundle. Remember that these are better as a bundle, as you will save 10%, and really who wants one without the other?

This card has a lot of steps, but in itself, it is not hard to make. Pretty straight forward pieces to be added to the card…
