Thanks for sharing all the measurements
This looks like so much work
Just need to get the hang of it and will try to make a few for spring

I definitely plan to try it! I especially love this sweet butterfly paper. Going to need more of that pattern as it is so pretty.

My friends are going to just love this I'm sure!

I needed a birthday card idea and this seems like a cute little card to make. Thanks.

That looks like so much fun!

Excellent card! Thanks for all the info on it!

what a cute idea! great way to use up some of my dsp too!

Beautiful card, Lyssa! This looks like one my ladies would really like. Thank you for the tutorial!

I LOVE paper engineering so will be making this very soon (like today!). Thank you so much for these directions!

Thank you for sharing this creative card idea. Special thanks for sharing the dimensions! I am going to make this card today! Love it!

I love this idea because it adds something extra to a plain card in a different way. I can't' wait to try one..

Excited to try it! Love your step by step instuctions! Love your card!

Very cute fold, you're so kind to share this idea, Lyssa.

I am going to try it. Thanks for sharing and giving the instructions.

Great card! Will definitely give it a go! Thanks for sharing the instructions. :)

What am I doing wrong? When I follow your instructions, I end up with a very tiny card--3 1/4" wide by 4 1/4 tall when folded. I also don't see where you put that 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 panel. Thanks!

Hi Brenda--you aren't doing anything wrong. The little fanfare fold card is attached to the cardfront piece (the 4.25x5.5 inch piece. It's just a backing for the folded part. You write on the folded part. Hope that makes sense : ) LZ

Will certainly make this. Will just have to convert the size into centre metres

Thank you for your response, Lyssa. Now it makes sense. especially when I look closer at the photos. Guess I had one of those "duh" moments.

This card is just gorgeous. I have been trying to come up with an idea for a card for my home care worker/friend and this is perfect, especially with the butterflies. Her dad died a while ago and he loved butterflies so this is perfect. Thanks for sharing the instructions and measurements.

This looks great. Im looking for a card for a 21st. Ill try it

Great design. Thanks for sharing all the details. I am going to make a Birthday card for my 91 year young Aunt and give it a try.

This is Great! Thanks for all measurements and images!

This looks like a fun card to make I will definitely give it a try.

I just found your blog and this post and will definitely be trying this card! Thank you for the instructions and measurements. Your card is gorgeous!!

Thanks Lyssa, that looks like fun!! Have a super day!!

Thank you for sharing it is so cute! I have shamelessly CASED it although I may leave it as a mini card the proportions are perfect! Linda xx

Fantastic card fold must have a go at
This tonight need a special card for my
Friends birthday soon

Your directions are simple and easy to follow so I will try this with my ladies
Thanks for sharing

Fantastic card fold and quite different. Thanks for great tutorial.

Thanks for the great idea! I will definitely try this!

LOVE this card and idea! I am always looking for unique cards. I will be making this. Thanks so much for sahring.

This looks fabulous. Will definitely make use this fold. Thanks for sharing it !!

Thanks for all the information as to scoring lines and paper size. This is easier than I thought it would be and am using a polka dot paper for the inside, etc.

Thanks for sharing!!

Thanks so much for this tutorial. I am especially thankful that you provided all the paper measurements too. Can't wait to give this a try.

Thank you for the tutorials.
Definitely making it!

I have enjoyed playing around with this fun fold card idea. I'm not sure why it's not standing up for those questioning that. I've used the apothecary large stamp for some of my front labels and made multi-layers of a diamond pattern label with dimensional flowers attached. So far mine are standing up well. I do use my bone folder to make sure my scores are crisp. You're card is adorable 😊. I plan to use your idea and just switch up just a bit just because I prefer not to do an exact copy. Thanks for sharing. I'm just not good with the computer for trying to share any of mine. Still recover from chemo brain fog.

Love love love the look of this card, going to make one for my great grandaughters third birthday, great tutorial and easy to follow, and the card you made is beautiful thanks.

I loved this card.. it was simple but great. Mine stood up on its own.

Thank you for sharing this idea. I am definitely going to try it :)

Great instructions! I have been looking for a different kind of card... this will be next on my list to make! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the gorgeous card post! My upline used your card as inspiration and I loved her card so I found your post. I did post a link on my blog so that you would get the credit for your great card and easy directions.
Thank you!

Lyssa, YOur card is SO BEAUTIFUL!! I LOVE the soft color palette you used for your card! I totally plan of giving this a try!!

Cette carte a l'air d'ĂȘtre trĂšs agrĂ©able Ă  rĂ©aliser et la tienne est superbe!
Merci infiniment de nous en donner le tutoriel!
Boone soirée.

great tutorial, very easy to follow will be doing a few of these cards
could easily attach a stand for the back of it so it will "stand up" or maybe not adhere to the base card, but then it spoils the look of the card

Lovely Card shape will definatley be having a go at this xx

I tried this fold and love the card..

Super easy card fold tutorial!! Thank you sooooo much for the measurements.

I loved the idea and the instructions look easy to follow. Will try this card at the week-end

Love this card and do really appreciate the exact measurements. Thanks for sharing.

I'm here thanks to Pinterest. This is a really quick card, and I just made ten of them using the assembly line method! Since the photo shows it will obviously not stand up, and since recipients of some of my cards tell me they put them on the shelf or mantle, I just omitted the back piece and made the colored card stock 12 x 5.5 inches with the score lines the same. This makes the finished card 5.5 x 4 inches. I also adjusted the dsp measurements accordingly. The ten cards used three 12x12 dsp and five 12x12 card stock. Thank you for a card idea that uses up lots of goal is to use up paper quickly. To reduce my stash or to help me justify going shopping...I'll let you decide!

Lyssa: Beautiful card but I am the contrary of Elsie . . . I live in a country where we cannot find scrapbooking material soooooooo . . . I will not do the base card . . . just the accordeon, I will save some material and the card will stand up . . . will be doing some Christmas cards with this pattern for fund raising for a charitable organization. Thanks soooooooooooooo much for sharing the photo tutorial.

Thank you for sharing. Great card.

Thanks for the tutorial. I needed an idea for a pink birthday card and I think this will be perfect.
