I'm telling ya, my friends are geniuses... Cindy swapped samples with me and I got this gorgeous new fancy fold and immediately knew you all would need the tutorial! It's called the Standing Triple Panel card and it's so ridiculously easy and ridiculously cute!
Not only is this all done with just four easy score lines, it also folds completely flat and fits in a regular medium envelope with no trouble. Love it! Grab your Simply Scored and let's party!
To begin, you'll need to gather:
- 5.5 x 8.5 inch cardstock (regular size card base) (Pear Pizzazz shown here)
- Simply Scored or other scoring tools
- Patterned paper (Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper)
- Stamps, ink, punches, etc, to embellish as desired (Oh So Succulent stamp set and Succulent Framelit dies shown here. Bundle both and save 10% now through May 31st!)
- Note: you'll probably want to cut a plain 2 x 5.25 inch strip of neutral colored cardstock for the back of the main panel, so you can write your message (not shown). Otherwise, just write on any empty panel.
Score the cardstock base at 2, 3 and 1/8th, 5 and 3/8ths, and 6.5 inches on the long side.
Fold towards the back on the two inner scores, and towards the front on the two outer scores.
Next, cut patterned paper panels to the following measurements:
- cut two 1.75 x 5.25 inch panels (sides)
- cut one 2 x 5.25 inch panel (middle)
Then, just decorate as desired! It's fun to have some of the front panel elements overlap the side panels, as Cindy did here. Just be sure not to put adhesive on the outer edges of those elements--you'll accidentally adhere your card shut!
Love it! So thankful for sharing friends who spread joy and inspiration with every "folded hug" they send. Wouldn't you just love to be part of this group of women? If you're ready to take the next step in sharing, and become a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd be honored to be your number one cheerleader as you learn how simple and easy it is to teach rubber stamping to others. Today's technology makes it even easier to build a group of stampers who are eager to add new techniques and quick projects to their repertoire.
I love, love, LOVE being a demonstrator. And there's definitely room for you in our world! You don't have to have a teaching degree to become a creative coach or crafting instructor. That's a good thing, because you KNOW we'd spend all our dough on craft supplies instead of paying back student loans!! Whoopsie : )
No experience necessary. Thank goodness, or I never would have had the courage to try all those years ago. I hope you'll let me help you walk through what being a stampin & scrapbookin' teacher looks like. It's one of the best moves I ever made.
Could it be that for you, too?
What a gorgeous card - thank you so much for the tutorial! I love the succulent garden DSP, there are so many great designs, and the color combination is fabulous.

Thank you so much for this tutorial! Another way to use up all that retired DSP that I have been saving (hoarding!). I love reading what you have written; it is like you are sitting right here with me. Thank you so much for sharing.
