This week’s feature fun fold is the Bay Window. I saw it just last week in a Facebook Live replay by Rachel Tessman’s. She used the Feels Like Frost designer series paper since this fold is perfect for patterns that are directional.
I wanted to do the same for my prototype card so I chose the Let It Snow Speciality DSP along with the Snowman Season stamp set. Just look at how cute this card turned out. Note that this card has two strips of Real Red to frame the bay window. I will speak to that later.
For the video, I wanted to use the Playful Penguins stamp and selected the Feels Like Frost DSP but chose to use the white and silver side which I thought would be perfect for an icy look. Look how gorgeous this paper is with the Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Notice that the bay window is not framed with additional cardstock. I didn’t think it needed it in this case.
Look how well this card stands, and in the video, I mention how great this design would be for a tea light card by using vellum or our window sheets. I will have to try this out.
This next photo shows the card lying down to show that it fits inside an A2 envelope for mailing.
You may need to include instruction for the recipient on how to tuck the card front under the greeting label.
Cutting & Scoring Measurements
On the long side, cut at 1-3/8″, 1-5/8″ and 1-3/8″ (4 pieces)

If you’d like to create a Whisper White card base as I did for the snowman card and the card Rachel made, you will need an additional piece of coloured cardstock that is cut to create the trim for the bay window and a layer for the inside of the card.
Cut a piece of coloured cardstock to measure 4-1/8″ x 3-3/4″. Place the 3-3/4″ side along the top of the trimmer and trim off 1/4″ and then another 1/4″ leaving a piece that measures 4-1/8″ x 3-1/4″ for the inside panel. Then cut a piece of Whisper White to measure 4″ x 3-1/8″. Rachel’s blog post and video can be found here.
