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

Susan, this is so cute. Added joy for the child that gets to open the special fold
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
