Timeless Tropical Fun Fold Gift Card Holder for the Alphabet Challenge

Timeless Tropical Birthday Fun Fold Card by Stampin' Up!

It’s time for a new Alphabet challenge – “I is for Island Fun – Anything Tropical.” Our summer here is Michigan has certainly felt tropical at times this year. I am so thankful for my craft room being cool! The Timeless Tropical stamp set with its coordinating dies were absolutely perfect for this theme. My card is a type of Z Fold that I altered to make my favorite A6 style.

MY SECRETS TO MAKING THIS PROJECT

  • This is a great fun fold that I saw in Pinterest some time ago. I wanted to try to make one with the A6 dimensions so this is the measurement of each piece for the card base.
    • Card base: 6 1/4″ x 4 1/2″
    • Card base DSP: 6″ x 4 1/4″
    • Z Fold DSP: 3 9/16″ x 5 1/8″
    • Z Fold Cardstock: 10″ x 5″ then scored at 3 3/8,” 6 3/4″
  • Once I cut and assembled the card, I was able to create each panel individually.
  • All sides of the Z Fold were used for this card. I have photos to show both sides.
  • I really kept the card pretty simple, so please leave me a comment if you have any questions.
