Cards with a fun fold!

Posted by on April 4, 2015 in Featured, Greeting Cards, Promotions, video | 0 comments

This Pinwheel card has a fun fold and showcases both sides of the designer series papers from Stampin’ Up!  The paper is cut to 8″ x 8″ and then scored using the Simply Scored along with the Diagonal Plate.

The first card for today uses the “Something Borrowed” paper and the “Feel Goods” stamp set with a color combination of Whisper White and Sahara Sand.

Easy Fun Fold Card

The greeting is stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White cardstock and die-cut with the Labels Thinlits and Big Shot.

The greeting is attached to a 7/8″ wide “belly band” accented with White Organza ribbon.  The band easily slips off and allows the card to be opened.

The inside layer is Whisper White cardstock trimmed to 4″ x 4″ which gives you plenty of room for a personal message and gift card.

Here are a couple more variations of the Pinwheel fold card:


pinwheel card birthday bash 1

This one uses the “Birthday Bash” Designer Series Paper and the “Celebrate Today” stamp set with matching Balloon Framelits.  The balloon is stamped in Calypso Coral and the greeting in Night of Navy.  I added Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim for a sparkly embellishment and the greeting is die-cut with the Bitty Banners Framelit.  I love the design on this paper – it makes me think of books on a bookshelf, perfect for a graduate 🙂


pinwheel card black 1

This graduation card uses the “Back to Black” Designer Series Paper and the super fun “B.Y.O.P” stamp set 🙂

The greetings in that stamp set cover a variety of occasions and are perfect for gift cards, checks and money.

These cards are easy to create and a little bit addicting!  Once you make one, you’ll want to create others using different designer series papers and color combinations.
