Dino Days Fun Fold

This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp class.  It is a fun fold card because when you open it, only the bottom half opens.

First of all, some of you with eagle eyes will notice that I adhered the piece of Dinosaur Designer Series Paper upside down.  Do you think if I send this to a grandchild they will notice?  Probably not until an adult tells them.  When I showed my ladies this card, I said “do as I say and not as I do”. I think my parents used to say that to me.

This fun fold is super easy to make.  You take a piece of 4.25″ x 5.5″ cardstock to use as the base.  I used Pool Party for this.  Then you cut a 2.75″ x 8.5″ piece of cardstock (Pineapple Punch), fold it in half and adhere one half of it to the Pool Party base.  Then you layer a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Dinosaur Designer Series Paper over the Pineapple Punch piece.  I then layered a 2.5″ x 3.75″ piece of Whisper White over this to write your message on but I am not sure I would do that again.  I think you could write on the back or on the folded piece instead.

I stamped the dinosaur in Pineapple Punch ink and cut it out using the matching Dino Dies and Iayered that on top of a Whisper White oval I cut out using the Layering Oval Dies and a larger oval in Pineapple Punch.   I stamped the bubbles and the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Old Olive ink

  1. Such a fun card! And I thought it was just the pattern on the paper (until the card opened up) before realizing the dino’s were upside down. Who cares – they’re extinct now anyway! ha ha
