Hello, my fellow crafters. I’m so happy to be giving you another fun fold card tutorial amidst the turmoil happening around the world. I hope that while you read this and watch my video tutorial, you get a little respite.
This week I came across a fun fold called the four-fold made by a non-Stampin’ Up! crafter. Her card base used a piece of cardstock that measured 5-1/2″ x 11-1/2″. To get this measurement, she had to cut from a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock.
I didn’t want to do that so decided to rework the layout so I could use a regular 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. Before embarking on this, I decided to have a search for another similar layout. Luckily I came across a card made by Sharon Armstrong, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator out of Texas.
My prototype card was made using the Forever Blossoms bundle, page 15 of the 2020 Mini catalogue. I received this just last week and was dying to play.
And for the card in the video:
For this I used the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and coordinating paper, both are SAB items.
Highland Heather cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 11
On long side, score at 1/4″, 3-3/4″ and 7-1/4″
Rotate the cardstock so the 7-1/4″ score line is at the bottom.
On short side, score at 5/8″ only down to the last scoreline.
Highland Heather cardstock: 2″ x 4-1/4″
Whisper White cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″
DSP: 2 pieces cut to 1-3/4″ x 4 and 2 pieces cut to 3-1/4″ x 4-5/8″

Happy crafting everyone. And stay healthy.
