2 Card Folds that are WAY Easier Than I Even Thought!

I always see these amazing card folds and I think ...oh my...I'm not sure I can even do that, so I can't create that for a stamp club or a class and expect my customers to do it?!
BUT I decided to step out of my box and that I needed a little FUN in my crafty life! I loved the result! If I can do these 2 card folds, so can YOU! My VIPeeps loved these cards and wanted me to make sure I put the directions here so that they can recreate them again in the near future.  I'm hoping these will inspire you to try folds and just GO FOR IT, too!!!
The 2 secrets to making these cards flow and work well:
*use coordinating pattern paper, cardstocks and inks
*and good scored lines.


Measurements: 

crumb cake stampin up cardstock....4 1/4 X 11, scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" 
emerald envy stampin up cardstock...3 1/4 X 9, scored at 3" and 6"
2 flirty flamingo stampin up cardstock...2 3/4 X 3
2 whisper white stampin up cardstock...2 1/2 X 2 3/4
pick a pattern designer series paper...2 3/4 X 41/4

Directions: 

  1. Fold the crumb cake cardstock  in 1/2 at the 5 1/2 score line and then the 2 3/4 score line gets folded up.
  2. The emerald envy gets folded in 1/2 at the 6" score line and then folded up at the the 3" score line.  
  3. Place the designer series paper on the top flap of the crumb cake stampin up cardstock.
  4. Stamp the bear from the pieces and patterns stamp set on the white cardstock with crumb cake and the Why, Thank You with the archival basic black stampin up stamp pad.  On the other piece of white cardstock, stamp the circles at the bottom.
  5. Stamp the bear in crumb cake classic ink pad across the bottom of the crumb cake cardstock.
  6. Layer the flirty flamingo cardstock and the whisper white on top of the emerald envy cardstock.  
  7. Wrap the black and white baker's twine 3 times around the top of the card and tie in a bow.
