Oh I LOVE this Fun Fold Card idea!! I had never seen this fold before until I attended a 4 day retreat in So. California in February. Amy Combs hosted the retreat and this fun fold card pattern was my favorite card idea!
The great thing is, it basically uses up 1/2 a sheet of 12×12 DSP (Designer Series Paper) with minimal cutting and just 3 score lines, AND showcases both sides.. I think that’s the best part! There are 4 different ways you can make this card. I’ll be highlighting them in my Facebook Live today at 10am PT. Join me on my business page for that!
I have created 4 different types of cards from one Fun Fold Pattern. They all feature the brand new Ornate Garden Suite – available April 1st to all customers!!! click to download info about the Ornate Garden Suite!

Watch my Facebook Live video HERE to see how easy this card design is to make, and how to make 4 different cards from this one fold!
Or Watch it on YouTube below:
Fun Fold Type 1:
Vertical card design with center fold of the Designer paper sealed shut.
Supplies: Ornate Garden designer paper with Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp sets. Stitched so Sweetly and Rectangle stitched dies. Card base is Mint Macaron. Stitched Rectangle is Flirty Flamingo.
Tip!! I added a Pearlized Doily to my card but sponged the matte side of it with Calypso Coral ink for a pop of color to match the die cut flowers!
Fun Fold Type 2:
Vertical card design with DSP accordion folded and not sealed shut on any of the folds. It’s mounted on a Crushed Curry cardstock panel.
This card design allows the recipient to see all of the pattern on both sides of the Ornate Garden paper. The card will fold out completely flat to expose all of the panels.
Supplies: I decorated the front with a piece of the Ornate Border dies and a sentiment from the Rare Blessings set stamped on a Stitched Nested dies die cut. The stitched rectangle die on the back panel is perfect for writing your greeting, and it’s found in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (limited time offer).
Fun Fold Type 3:
Vertical card design with all of the folds of the Designer paper sealed shut. (It basically opens like a regular card). I LOVE how this card turned out!!
Supplies: I used a border die from the Ornate Borders set to decorate the front panel. I tied the front panels together with Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack, and put a die cut piece from the Ornate Layers dies inside to write on. It’s all mounted on a piece of Old Olive Cardstock. Do you love it!??
Fun Fold Type 4:
Horizontal Gift Card Holder card design with all of the folds of the Designer paper sealed shut on the sides, creating 2 pockets.
If you flip the card horizontally, and seal up the sides, you can create 2 pockets!! I made a Gift Card Holder this way!!
Supplies: It’s mounted on a Mint Macaron card base panel. The focal image is from the Tags in Bloom Sale-a-Bration set, a free gift selection with your $100 order through 3-31-20. The stitched rectangle die in the back pocket is perfect for writing your greeting, and it’s found in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (limited time offer).
