Everyday Details Fun Fold Card for Creative Creases #75

It’s time for a new Creative Creases challenge. Firstly, thanks to all those who participated in the last challenge! If you haven’t played in the challenge yet, I hope I can inspire you to join the challenge that’s starting today! I have such a great card to show you – it’s called a “book cradle” fold and you need to try it when you’re ready. Of course, I had to bring out my most favorite designer paper right now, Flight & Airy, for my second attempt at this card. I used a couple of the sentiments from Everyday Details as well as the coordinating dies to make this sweet birthday card.

My cautionary tale is to make sure the card base is thick cardstock. As you probably guessed, my first one was not using the thick stuff and it showed. If you want to see a Fun Fold Fail, keep reading!

My Card Today

Create this card using Everyday Details by Stampin' Up! and Debbie Mageed  at Secrets To Stamping

My Secrets!

Let’s start with the card base…

  • Firstly, I followed the tutorial found HERE by Mixed Up Crafts. Her video is great to watch for tips on putting this fun fold together. The finished size is 6 x 6 and does fold flat for mailing but will need extra postage due to the bulky size and the fact that it’s in a square envelope.
  • Cardstock: 3 x 6 (3) and score each piece along the 3′ side at 1-1/2
  • Cardstock: 4 x 6 (2) for the top panels and score along the 4 side at 1/2, 3-1/2
  • Cardstock for bottom of the card: 6 x 2-1/2 and score on the 2-1/2 side at 1/2, 1-1/4, and 2
  • Designer Paper: 5-3/4 x 1-1/4 (4) to cover the bottom (cradle) panels
  • Designer Paper: 5-3/4 x 2-3/4 (2) to cover the front and back top panels
  • Designer Paper: 5-3/4 x 1/4 to cover the thin top panels

Now, the FUN part!

  • So, after cutting the pieces for the card base and adding the background panels, I glued the panels to the cardstock and assembled the card.
  • The focal image of this card was fussy cutting the bird (matching the background DSP). Then, I stamped the Perennial Postage sentiment in Boho Blue ink, cut it out with the Everyday Details die and layered it onto Boho Blue cardstock that had been punched out with the 2-1/2 Circle Punch.
  • After that, I cut out Crumb Cake cardstock with the branch from Seasonal Branches dies, and colored it a bit randomly with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends marker.
  • Once that was done, I popped the bird up with dimensionals and glued the branch down where it was under the bird and rolled up a little glue dot for the other end.
  • Then, I stamped the “Happy Birthday” from Go To Greetings in Boho Blue ink and cropped it out with the small die in Nested Essentials.
  • For the back side of the card, I then cut white cardstock and layered it onto DSP and stamped the Everyday Details sentiment to make a personal message.
  • Finally, I stamped the next Everyday Details sentiment and cut it out with the same Nested Essentials die. Then, I added three Boho Blue Dots onto both sides of the top panels for a little sparkle.

Fun Fold FAIL! – my first attempt at this fun fold

  • So, as you can see, this card is not the best but my husband won’t care LOL! As I stated above, the Very Vanilla base was just too light to hold it up straight with all the layers. This confirms that trying a new fold with designer papers you won’t cry over if the card doesn’t turn out is a very good policy because I would have cried about messing up with the Flight & Airy DSP.
  • I make mistakes (who doesn’t!) and I have never claimed to make any card perfectly, so I decided to make them a teachable moment for you all to learn from.
  • So, leave me a comment and tell me about a memorable mistake you made on a card!

Noah has discovered puzzles! Here he is putting in the last piece. I think this hobby is going to cost me a lot – he had it done in less than an hour and asked for another!

  1. Debbie, I have never seen this fold before…it’s fantastic and I love the DSP. I don’t like to make anything but A2 cards so I’m going to see if I can make a template for that size…wish me luck.

  2. I like your projects, you make so beautiful projects. Once, after I finished my Christmas card I dropped the Red ink pad on the back of the front panel. I had to decorate that part too to hide the mess. And another time I glued the front panel upside down.

  3. Wow, he is such a bright kid. I love puzzles too. The only thing is with my cats I have a problem storing it before I finish (I do the 1,000 pieces). It is perfect for observation and concentration. You won’t regret buying more puzzles for him.

  4. I look forward to seeing what your new creation will be! Your cards are so creative and so lovely. I appreciate how precise you are in your exicution and your attention to detail. Thank you!!

  5. What a smart little cutie Noah is! I love this new fun fold Debbie, and like Karen I think I’ll try n adjust the finished size down too. Yes, dropping ink pads on my project, gluing things upside down or on the wrong side, cutting when meant to score… it just happens n gives cause to smile

  6. Debbie, both your cards are AMAZING! I love this fold and will have to give it a try soon! Thanks for the tip about using heavy-weight card stock. Your husband most likely won’t even notice the slight bowing of the card base, and he’ll love the tool theme. The Flight and Airy dsp is simply gorgeous, and that little bird on the front is adorable! Awesome card!

    Have you looked into getting puzzles for Noah from your local library? My library lends out puzzles the way they do books.

  7. I’d have cried if I wrecked any of the Flight and Airy DSP, too. Can’t you fix the manly card with some strategically placed popsicle sticks? 🤣🤣🤣 Noah’s puzzle is great! Such a good family time when he gets older, too!!!

  8. Beautiful fold, love this design and paper. Wow! Noah must be very smart to finish that puzzle by himself and especially in such a short time! Maybe you can start a puzzle swap club with some of his friends and family!! NM

  9. Debbie, I love this fold. It showcases the beautiful “Flight & Airy” products so well. Thank you for all of the tips and directions. I love that you showed us the first attempt at this fold too. So fun.

    Thank you for being such a gracious host for these challenges. Have a great weekend, my friend.

  10. Debbie, I love love your work. I have been following you Do you happen to have Simply Zinnias cardstock I can Purchase from you? Thank you, Blessings Gloria
