Telescoping Card Tutorial

I am addicted to making these Telescoping Cards! (Click here to see my Flirtatious Telescoping Card.) They are so easy and once you start, you just can't stop! And I've got great news! I finished the tutorial!

Today's card uses the new Fruits & Flowers stamp set and coordinating Berry Blossoms designer paper. In fact, this is the third card in the set that I made with my mom's downline last week. Click here to see the first two projects.

I made a little video to show the movement of this card. (It's more like a string of photos than a video.) It's so fun to open and close! Who doesn't love a card that moves or does something!? (By the way, this card will fit in the Medium Square Envelopes, which do require some extra postage since they are square.)

As a side note, don't get too excited about my new YouTube channel. I started a new account for this video, but I don't have any plans for "real videos" anytime soon. I just don't have the right equipment or the time. I'm not saying never...just not right now!

The list of supplies for this card is in the tutorial with links to my Online Stampin' Up! Store so you can get what you need to make this at home. Click here to view the FREE print tutorial.

(I forgot to include the greeting stamp sets on the supply list. "Birthday Greetings" comes from the Upsy Daisy stamp set, and the inside message is from Full of Life. I used Early Espresso ink to stamp them.)
