This easy fancy fun fold card is very suitable if you’re a beginner card maker and want to give fun folds a go.
I must admit that the Delicate Desert stamp set I used, was not on my wish list when I first opened the catalogue.
But I have since changed my mind, and it’s probably my second favourite -after the Dainty Delights Bundle.
What I really love about this fun fold card, is that you can make 4 cards out of 1 sheet of A4 cardstock.
Now that’s just an amazing good use of your cardstock!
Of course, you don’t have to have this exact style stampset – but just letting you know that with the current Sale-a-Bration on until the 28th Feb -it will earn you a free gift with purchase.

Putting your easy fancy fun fold card together
- Burnish your score lines
- Using your paper trimmer, place the corner of the cardstock in the top groove and make sure you have the bottom corner in the bottom groove
- Cut the cardstock in half -leaving two pieces
- You will only use one of the pieces
- Stamp and die cut out 5 flowers -2 big and 3 small using your scrap
- Stamp out 2 leaves -using your scrap
- Stamp and die cut your sentiment
- Stamp leaves onto the bottom edge of the cardstock
- Adhere the 3 small flowers
- On the next edge- stamp more leaves and adhere a large flower
- On the last edge – glue your leaves and large flower
- Glue on your Happy Birthday sentiment
- And glue on your message inside your card
- Add the pastel gems
And just like that you’re done!
I hope you enjoyed making this easy card.
