Welcome to my second post for March 1, 2024. In case you missed it, my design team member card for the monthly Sparkles Christmas Challenge went live at 04:00 ET and you can find that card here.

For this post, I am honored to be the guest designer for the Creative Creases Challenge #77. As always, the theme of this challenge is Anything Goes with a Fun Fold. I needed a birthday card and decided to make a stadium wave card using the Fluffiest Friends stamp set and coordinating dies. All the critters in this set are so, so, so cute, but I absolutely fell in love with the little bird and now have this cute little guy stuck in my head and he will be featured on a card in the near future.

Here’s my Fluffiest Friends stadium wave card:

The magic of this card happens when it is first opened because it looks like it would take so much time and work. However, it took me much longer to stamp, color, and crop then it did to create the inside mechanism. So absolutely stinking cute!

I used a video by Stamp with Tami for the directions. I followed her measurements and scoring lines to a T. Her video is easy to follow and she’s very open about this being a new-to-her fold. I’m amazed that she worked out the measurements and directions after watching a video by a Dutch card maker, and she did it without the help of translations.

A Few Tips:

  • After making my first wave mechanism in white cardstock, I found that there’s a reason Tami used the same color cardstock as the card base. The mechanism attaches to the base, not the white cardstock inside pieces. This looks much better when the colors are the same.
  • I found that after scoring the 8 by 7-3/4 inch cardstock for the mechanism, it seemed easier to use my bone folder to burnish all the score lines before trimming down to 1-inch strips.
  • Tami used a belly-band to keep the card closed. I wanted to have the front decorations on the card and not a belly-band. However, deciding to do so before adhering the white cardstock and the mechanism to the inside of the card. However, I think I solved the problem using tear & tape to secure the ribbon on the back and then added this cute little bunny and cardstock piece.
  • Tami trimmed little tabs to help the first two critters (for me, daisies for her). Next time, I am going to make them just a bit longer than 1/2 inch. I’ll probably use them on the bottom two as well.

The possibilities for this card are endless, and I am adding it to my favorite fun fold rotation. As with most new-to-me fun folds, you’ll probably be seeing a few of these stadium cards in the coming months.

Please visit Tami’s YouTube video and create a stadium wave card for one of your loved ones. Don’t forget to upload it to the gallery at the Creative Creases Challenge! As a challenge top winner, you could get to be a guest designer as well!
