Free Online Class: 12 Quick & Easy Fun Fold Cards

FREE Online Class: Stampin' Up! #ShareSunshine Covid-19 Product Giveback #stampinup #sudifferencemaker ~ 12 Quick & Easy Fun Fold Cards featuring Dinoroar Designer Paper ~ www.juliedavison.com

I had so much fun sharing the Double Wonder Cards last month that I wanted to do another online class. I started by showing the basic card-making folds and then introduced two fun folds: the Z Fold and the Gate Fold. We added some simple designer layering layer to make 12 cards in one hour.

Watch the replay of my Facebook Live and follow along to make your own set of cards:

Here are the supplies you'll need: Supplies: Paper Trimmer [152392] –– http://bit.ly/2WVprpz (1) 12" x 12" Designer Paper (I used Dinoroar Designer Series Paper [155882] –– https://bit.ly/2M9CZZX) (6) 8-1/2" x 11" Colored Cardstock for Card Bases (I used Old Olive) (2) 8-1/2" x 11" Colored Cardstock for Layers (I used Pool Party) (2) 8-1/2" x 11" White or Vanilla Cardstock
Use the cutting and scoring measurements on the Basic Card-Making Folds Instruction Sheet (.pdf) for the card bases. Then add the designer paper and cardstock layers.
Easy Layering Measurements: 3" x 4" Designer Paper 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" Whisper White Cardstock (Cut down the middle at 4-1/4" and then cut each side into 3-1/4" pieces.)

After the class, I die cut some dinosaurs from the Dinoroar designer paper using the Dino Dies and added them to my cards.

All of the sentiments on these cards came from the #ShareSunshine PDF. I used different dies and punches to punch out the sentiments from the 15 page document.

This digital stamp set is packed with both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!

As part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference program, 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts. The #ShareSunshine PDF is only available until June 2, so don't wait!

    VIDEO: Bonanza Buddies Pop Through Accordion Card Tutorial

    My favorite suite in the January-June Mini Catalog is Birthday Bonanza. I love the bright colors in the designer paper and the cute critters. I'm so disappointed that the entire suite is retiring in two weeks! That means there is only two weeks left to get the bundle and designer paper before it's gone! 

    I designed this Pop-Through Accordion Card for my April Stamp of the Month Club. I try to feature a different fun fold each month. The focal point on this card pops through the window in the front of the card and is attached to an accordion pop-up inside.

    Here is the front of the card when it's closed. (Tip: Make sure to stamp the card front before you assemble it and add the inside accordion piece!)

    • 2 ¼” x 2 ¼” Whisper White cardstock
    • 3” x 3” Terracotta Tile cardstock

I'll add you to my club mailing list and you'll receive one email each month revealing the stamp set and card designs. You can choose when you want to participate by simply replying to that email.

    Each month, I feature a different stamp set. Those who participate in March will receive the Timeless Tropical stamp set (or substitute a different set), pre-cut materials to make 6 cards (2 each of 3 designs), printed instructions with a color photo of each card, and Priority Mail shipping.
