Jungle Pals for the January Demo Fun Fold Blog Hop!

Welcome to the January Stampin’ UP! Demo Fun Fold Blog Hop! As you probably already know, I love fun folds and am always looking for something new. This blog hop always provides me with new folds to try. When you finish here, I hope you will hop along using the lineup below my post. There’s always loads of inspiration here, and don’t forget to upload your own fun folds to the Creative Creases challenge, which is always anything goes with a fun fold.

I have two versions of a vertical freestanding fun fold card. The second version is an extended version. Please keep in mind that, while these cards will fit in a medium envelope (I promise!) they will require extra postage.

Here are my cards:

Here’s the extended version:

I found my fun fold on Susan Campfield’s YouTube channel. You can find her video tutorial here. Her video includes examples of both the vertical and horizontal layouts. I’m going to have to try the horizontal .layout next!

Jungle Pals:

  • This Sale-a-Bration stamp set and coordinating dies are available for FREE with qualifying purchases. The stamp set is FREE with a $50 purchase (US) and the die set is FREE with a $100 purchase (US).
  • I stamped all the animals using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • The stamping blends combos made coloring these cuties easy:
    • The Smoky Slate blends combos were used for all the sloths and the lemurs.
    • I used the Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie blends for the tiger.
    • I colored the toucans using the Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Smoky Slate dark of Basic Black light blends. One toucan is colored with the light Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and dark Smoky Slate blends. I colored the other one using the dark Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and light Basic Black blends.
  • I cropped the tree trunks from Pecan Pie cardstock.
  • All the vines and leaves were cropped from Garden Green and Granny Apple Green cardstock.
  • I used embossing folders for the Garden Green outside strips.
  • I stamped all the sentiments in Momento Tuxedo Black ink using the Charming Sentiments stamp set and cropped using the coordinating dies.
  • I didn’t use dimensionals on the extended card version. For that card, I only used multipurpose liquid glue because the extra cardstock added more thickness.
