Fun Fold Friday Fall Cards

This year, I began a series of live videos on my Facebook page featuring fun fold cards. I have enjoyed sharing these with you and showing you how I create these designs.

This past week, I shared a tutorial featuring this set of triangle folds. I taught you how to used the new card stencils and flower thin cuts on the design and shared how to use stickers for your sentiments.

If you missed last week’s live video, here is the unedited version for you to enjoy.


Triangle fold cards are really easy to make. You simply cut an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in half at the diagonal, then fold the flaps to create a standard A2 size card base.

When you decorate the card front, you need to make sure that you don’t adhere anything across that diagonal opening. On each of my cards, I cut two triangles from the Pumpkin Spice collection to decorate the front panels.

After adding the paper to the card base, I added some stamped stitching with the Embordered Borders stamp set. I really enjoy adding stitching onto my projects and this new stamp set allows me to do that without having to drag out my sewing machine every time.

The layered images on the card were placed onto some French Vanilla cardstock that I stenciled with a plaid design. I used our new Card Front Stencils and Distress Oxide Inks to create this, and I love how it turned out.

The flowers were cut from Mix-In papers using the new Layered Flower thin cuts. In the center, I placed a pile of beads and adhered them in place with liquid glass.

For the sentiment, I grabbed a few stickers from the Pumpkin Spice collection, added a wooden leaf, and called the card complete.

Both of these fun fold cards were simple to create and can be altered for any occasion. Just change to pattern paper colors and the flower design, and you have a whole new card! I hope you give this a try.

Use Up Scraps & Create a Matchbook Coffee Card

Do you collect paper scraps in your craft space? Near my desk, I have a plastic bin full of bits of paper that cry out to be used on a project, so this weekend, while the boys installed my sprinkler system out front, I dug into the bin and used a few paper bits on a Happy Morning matchbook coffee card.

This card was created using the parameters from last Friday’s Craft Roulette challenge. If you have not had a chance to enjoy the show, I suggest you head on over to their YouTube channel and set yourself a reminder. Each week is full of inspiration and crafty comradery.

This week challenged me a little. The base of the card needed to be a matchbook design which is something that I had never tried before. I have been challenged twice this month by Craft Roulette with some new fun folds and it stretched me and expanded my crafting potential. Here are the parameters from Episode #66.


To create this card design, I started with a 4.25″ x 11″ base cut from Kraft paper onto which I created a decorative edge of the flap using a heart-shaped fancy border die. The bottom flap was scored at 1.5″ then folded up to create the start of the matchbook fold.

The top portion of the card was folded over and tucked under the lower flap to give it the appearance of a matchbook. In my video tutorial, I share with you how to create each of the folds.

After the base of the card was complete, I rummaged through some paper scraps that I had been storing. I added some red pattern paper behind a piece of splattered coffee ringed cardstock on the top flap of the card. This was leftover from a Latte Card project I created a while back. (This was one of my first video tutorials. Boy, have I learned a lot! ).

The bottom flap was decorated with some floral paper and more of the red pattern paper. I also added a little stitching to the design in scarlet red.

With one of the parameters being “morning”, I knew that I needed to use my A Whole Latte Love stamp set. I had this sitting on my desk after creating my live fun fold video last Friday and coffee is the only thing that I know represents morning to me.

The cup and lid were shaded with SpectrumNoir TriBlends then adorned with a red plaid coffee sleeve. I attached the cup to a saffron circle splattered with Toffee shimmer, then attached it to the card with some haphazardly placed strips of paper, some floral stickers, and a happy die-cut sentiment.

To keep the matchbook closed, I added a little circular paperclip from my embellishment collection. In this video, you get another peek at my embellishment organization. After many requests, I can officially say that a series of craft space videos will be appearing this summer showing you how I organize my space.

After figuring out how to close up the card, I decided that it needed a coffee-loving sentiment inside. Under the flaps is an adorable little quote that has been spattered and inked like the rest of the card.

How easy was that? I felt such a sense of accomplishment using up some scraps and embellishments from my craft stash and getting it all put together before the deadline. I also enjoyed learning how to create a new fun fold design and having the opportunity to create something I love.

I hope that this project inspired you to try something new. Many of the supplies I used on this project are listed below. They are available for a limited time, so make sure you snag a few to make a Happy Morning coffee card of your own.

A Father’s Day Fancy Fold Card

I truly enjoy teaching new techniques and showing crafters, like you, how to use supplies you have in your craft room. This past month, I began a new series on Facebook called Fun Fold Friday, and this Father’s Day card is just one of the projects I created in May. If you didn’t have a chance to join me, you can view the video at the bottom of this post.

This simple version of a double flap card was easy to make using a standard A2 size card base. After removing half of the front panel, I added some blue belle and black pattern papers from a variety of paper collections.

The flap on the right side of the card was created using some additional cardstock, pattern paper, and tags cut from our new Mix-In pack. One of the pattern sheets in that pack is full of wonderful banners and tags which I also used on my Daddy’s Boy layout. Those layers of tags and banners add such a fun element to the design.

On one of the tags, I added a tassel of black embroidery thread to mimic a fishing fly. I thought it would add to the theme of the card which includes some images from the My Dad Rocks stamp set.

The images themselves were stamped using Espresso ink then shaded with a little watercolor paint. Since these inks are water-based, they did fade a little when the paint was added, but I like the way it turned out.

Along with this Father’s Day card, I also shared how to make a similar card using our Lovely collection. This double flap card design looks so beautiful, yet it is so simple to make once you learn a few little tricks.

For those of you who missed Fun Fold Friday, here is a link to the video from my Facebook page that you can view.
