A Mother’s Day Card for the February SU! Demos Fun Fold Blog Hop!

Welcome to the February Stampin” UP! Demo Blog Hop. Each month, this group of SU! Demos create fun fold cards to share with you. As always, fun fold cards can also be uploaded to the Creative Creases Challlenge!

Here’s my birthday accordion fun fold card:

When I saw the pictures accompanying this video from Stamp With Tami, I knew I had to create it for this hop. At the beginning of her video, Tami said it was a pretty easy fun fold since it’s created with 4 score lines, and I was hooked. You can find the link to her video here

For this card I used a number of the current Sale-a-Bration FREE items with a qualifying purchase. Here’s the Sale-a-Bration items I used:

I did make a three small changes to Tami’s directions. First, I’d rather have a smaller border, so I used a 1/8 inch border instead of a 1/4 border. In addition, I didn’t want the sentiment on the last fold to show when closed, so I made an adjustment to the piece of white cardstock for that flap. Finally, I didn’t want plain white cardstock showing on the back of the flaps. Therefore, I used one of the Basics Embossing Folders from the Online Exclusives. Only 1/8 inch shows around each piece of DSP, but it’s enough to have the DSP pop off the Poppy Parade cardstock.

Measurements I used combining Tami’s directions with my 1/8 inch borders:

  • The Poppy Parade base measures 11 by 4-1/4 inches, scored at 2-1/2, 3-3/4, 6-3/4, and 8-1/4 inches.
  • After embossing white cardstock using the basics embossing folder, trim white cardstock mats to 4 by 4 inches, 4 by 3-1/2 inches, and 4 – 2-1/4 inches.
  • The three DSP pieces measure 3-7/8 by 3-7/8 inches, 3-7/8 by 3-1/8 inches, and 3-7/8 by 2-1/8 inches.
  • I also trimmed a piece of the DSP to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. Then, I punched a 1-inch circle from the same DSP and used the reverse side for the envelope seal.


  • I used Tami’s directions for assembly – easy peasy.
  • I did add the Pool Party crinkled ribbon on the front panel and used the ribbon saver technique for it.
    • Cut a piece of ribbon to approximately 6 inches, and another piece to two inches.
    • Add the ribbon to the front of the card and adhere in the back as shown below.
    • Using the shorter length of ribbon, tie a knot around the ribbon on the front of the card.
  • The finishing touch was to add some Sale-a-Bration Pool Party opaque faceted dots.
