Welcome to the April, 2024, Fun Folds Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ UP! Demonstrators.

Each month, a group of demos share fun fold cards for a blog hop. I always learn something new and thoroughly enjoy seeing the creations of the other demos. We hope that you will use the line-up below to hop along with us. This month, I CASe’d a card from Karen Titus. Her post said it was a 5-minute card, and if you use a piece of 5-1/2 by 12 inch DSP (designer series paper), it totally is a 5-minute card. Within that time, you will have your base and panels are trimmed and ready to go. You can see the video with Karen and her husband here.

I’ve already posted a couple of cards I made using the Just Kiddin’ Suite Collection. You can see that post here.

Here’s my version of her card using the Kiddin’ Around bundle and coordinating DSP:

Here’s a video I created for the storybook accordion fold card:


  • The base of this storybook accordion card measures 12 by 5-1/2 inches.
  • Score at 1-3/4, 4-3/4, and 7-3/4 inches.
  • The panels of Karen’s card measure 2-3/4 by 4-1/4 inches, and you need 3 of them.
  • You also need 3 pieces of white cardstock measuring 2-1/2 by 4 inches.
  • Trim a piece of DSP (designer series paper) to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • Don’t forget to punch a 1-inch circle of coordinating DSP for the envelope seal. Run it through your XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • If you are using cardstock for your base and need DSP panels for each section, the measurements are as follows:
    • 2 pieces of DSP measuring 5-3/8 by 1-5/8 inches
    • 2 pieces measuring 5-3/8 by 2-7/8 inches
    • 1 piece measuring 5-3/8 inches by 4-1/8 inches.


  • The balloon stamps can be found in the Beautiful Balloons stamp set.
  • The first two sentiments come from the Zany Zoo stamp set.
  • I used the “you sparkle every day” sentiment from the Just Kiddin’ stamp set.
  • Thankfully, I didn’t need to fussy cut the adorable characters. The Just Kiddin’ die set contains dies to match different characters in the DSP.
  • After finishing my stamping, I cropped the Azure Afternoon and white squares using the Stylish Shapes die set.
  • This card will be bulky, but will fit in a medium SU! envelope as long as you don’t use dimensionals. Don’t forget to add an extra stamp to the envelope.
  • Therefore, I tear & tape to adhere the cardstock panels that stick out. Don’t use tear & tape on the whole piece or it won’t open properly.
  • Then, I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere all the other pieces.

I promise if you can trim and score paper, you can create this card. Promise!

Have fun creating!
