Welcome to the November SU! Demos Fun Fold Blog Hop. I am so happy that I am able to participate in this Fun Fold Blog Hop with these wonderful and talented demos.  At the end of this post, I hope you will hop along with all of us using the line-up at the bottom.  

Here’s my fun-fold card:


If this fold looks familiar, I made one for the November InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  You can see that card here.  I’m so happy that I found this card while searching Pinterest for a new to me fun fold earlier this month.  Beth McCullough at Stamping Mom posted an awesome tutorial that you can see here.  She posted templates, and then I made my own so I can keep them in my little journal of stamping.

Here are my templates:


What I Did:

  • The Merry Merlot cardstock back base measures 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 inches.
  • The second pieces of cardstock measures 4-1/4 by 11 inches. For scoring, you can do it one of two ways. First, score this piece at 2, 3-3/4, 7-1/4 and 9 inches. OR, you can score at 2 and 3-3/4 inches, then flip the paper 180 degrees and score at 2 and 3-3/4 inches on the opposite end.
  • Following another Stampin’ Pal from Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty demo group, I have challenged myself to use all of the retired Beauty of the Earth DSP I still have.  I used this beautiful pattern for the very front measures 3-3/4 by 4-1/8 inches. The second piece measures 1-3/4 by 4 inches.  
  • .The two outside pieces of the same DSP pattern each measure 7/8 by 4-1/8 inches. The piece for the very inside of the card comes from retired Merry Merlot 6 x 6 inch DSP and measures 3-1/4 by 4 inches.  
  • While I had the Beauty of the Earth DSP handy, I punched a 1-inch circle for the envelope seal.  Then, I ran it through my XYRON to create a sticker.
  • I trimmed a piece of the Merry Merlot 6 x 6 inch DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • I used scrap pieces of from the same Neutrals pack of retired 6 x 6 inch DSP for the leaves and branches on the front and the white cropped piece the inside sentiment.
  • I simply wrapped a piece of the faux suede ribbon around the front DSP piece.   I adhered it in the back using two pieces of tear-n-tape..  
  • Finally, I stamped the front sentiment in Soft Suede.  Then, I cropped it using the banner die from the Stylish Dies set.  Next, I used my Merry Merlot marker to outline the banner.  I did put dimensionals under the banner to pop it up a bit.  
  • HINT:  Since the banner is thin, it was hard to get the banner to lay flat.  In order to help the sentiment banner lay flat, I added three glue dots under the ribbon.  That seems to have helped.
  • The sentiment on the inside comes from the Fond of Autumn stamp set.  I used Early Espresso ink for this sentiment.  Then, I cropped it using one of the deckled rectangle dies.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.

Back to the SU! Demos Fun Fold Blog Hop:

When you finish here, I hope you will hop along to the other demos’ sites.  I know I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone else created.  As soon as my card goes live, I am going to add it to the gallery for the Creative Creases Challenge.  I can’t wait to see what you create and add to the challenge as well.
