I haven’t done a fun fold in a long time so I decided it was needed. I love fun folds because when you send one to someone it is fun to open. I love getting cards in the mail but then when I open it and it does something different, I love it even more. Most fun folds have a name but honestly, I have not clue what this one is called. I am going to call it a Pocket Card Fun Fold. I made one like it years ago and thought it would be fun to do again. This card is considered a fun fold because the card does not open but instead you pull out the “inside of the card” from the top.
To make this card I started with a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Just Jade card stock. To make the pocket, I took a piece of Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper and cut it to 5.5″ x 12″. I scored it at 4″ and 8″. I made a light pencil mark 2″ down on each side and cut from the score line to the pencil mark on both sides. I cut off a tiny sliver on each side so it would close better. Then I took a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the left edge and the bottom of both side flaps and then closed it. This is what it looks like.
Close the right flap and then close the left one over the right one.
The flower on the front of the card is from the stamp set called In Symmetry. I stamped the flower in Daffodil Delight and the stem and leaves in Just Jade. I stamped the sentiment in Night Of Navy ink. This stamp set has a coordinating punch called Symmetrical Stems Border Punch. If you purchase both the stamp set and the punch you can save 10%. I did not use the punch on this card but it is very cute!
Next I made the inside tag using a 3.5″ x 4.75″ piece of Just Jade card stock and 3.25″ x 4.5″ piece of Basic White. I added a small strip of Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper. The “hole” is actually a die from the Seasonal Labels Die set. I took a piece of Just Jade & Gold 3/8″ Braided Ribbon and tied a piece of White Baker’s Twine around it.
Susan, this is so pretty and fun. Thank you for the template.
This is such a cool card, Susan! I love the colors, the design, and that beautiful flower. So pretty – and super fun!
