Hey everyone! Welcome to Song of My Heart Stampers! I've got the cutest, easiest little stand-up card fold to share with you today. You're going to love how simple it is to make a card that will WOW your friends. They'll want to display it proudly on their desk or mantle!
This card has several features that make it qualify for my STRICT GUIDELINES about what constitutes a "real-life papercrafting" project! First, it is ECONOMICAL because it uses no more paper than a normal card, and requires only small pieces of patterned paper. Secondly, the measurements are NORMAL--no putzy 1/16ths or 3/8ths or anything like that. Third, IT FITS in a regular size envelope, so time-crunched crafters don't have to make their own unless they want to.
All in all, that's a WIN and definitely worthy of a place in my happy little blog world! So let's learn how to make it today.
Because this fold requires a score, two cuts and then another quick score, I am doing it all on my Stampin' Trimmer instead of the Simply Scored. You can use whatever cutting and scoring tools you own.
That's all the cutting and scoring we're doing today, so you can set those tools aside to free up your workspace. Now comes the fun part--decorating the card!
I used the new Daisy Delight stamp set (coming in the 2017-18 Stampin' Up Idea Book & Catalog!) and Designer Series Papers and Daisy Punch to decorate my card. I love how the coordinating colors in the paper are listed on the cardboard insert in each pack of patterned paper. No more guessing which ink pad colors to use!
Now wasn't that just as easy as I promised? I hope you'll give it a try.
