Welcome to the SU! Demos May Fun Fold Blog Hop!  I love fun folds, and am so grateful to Debbie Mageed from Secrets to Stamping for organizing this every month.  When you finish here, I hope you will visit the rest of the demos participating in the hop.  I’m always inspired by this hop and the creations each demo posts.

Here’s my card:


If this fun fold looks familiar, it’s because I’ve already posted a card with this fold,, and you can see that one here. I originally found this particular fun fold card on Mary Deatherage’s Stamps-n-Lingers page, which you can see here. I used Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, along with the Zoo Crew bundle and DSP from the annual catalog.


  • The Lemon Lime Twist base measures 4-1/4 by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches. This creates the front flap.
  • The black cardstock piece measures 3-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches. This piece is larger than the original directions. I adjusted the measurements based on the die cuts from the Scalloped Contours die set.
  • DSP (designer series paper) pattern # 1 – 5-3/8 by 4-1/8 for the inside panels
  • DSP pattern # 2 – 3-7/8 x 4-1/8 inches for. the front flap panel. I used the Scalloped Contour dies for the front panel and the inside.
  • DSP pattern # 3 – 3-7/8 x 4-1/8 inches. I colored the flowers using Petal Pink and Lemon Lime Twist markers.
  • Don’t forget to trim a piece of DSP to 6 inches .by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. Punch a 1 inch circle from coordinating DSP for the envelope seal.
  • I added the black and white gingham ribbon around the front flap. I did use by bone folder to get good creases.
  • The Zany Zoo die set will crop the animals out of the DSP, so I didn’t need to stamp and color anything.
  • I put dimensionals under the cutie pies on the front flap.
  • I used VersaMark and white embossing powder for the front sentiment, which comes from the Zany Zoo stamp set.
  • By following Mary’s directions, and with my adjustments, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
