they’re back… with fun folds!

Hello! I’ve been having fun with two of my retired stamp sets that were brought back in stock… Special Blend and Get Well Critters at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. I’ve always loved different card folds and recently have been trying a few more. I don’t know who updated this fun fold but it’s a variation of Beate’s Buckle Card from many years ago on SCS. The teacup is popped up on the front flap that tucks into the punched slot. I stamped a matching envelope for this one too.

Here’s the card open.

And here’s the measurements I typed up to save. I replaced one of the white layers with the yellow patterned paper on the front.

Here’s a new fold that lays flat and fits in an A2 envelope for mailing. The original creator of this fold is Emma Goddard. She didn’t have a name for it when I asked but decided on Fold Flat Pop Out Card! I love how the middle layer is scored and the front strip is curved!

I was curious at first about how this card goes flat without wrecking the curved piece. Let me see if I can explain…it folds flat like an open book, not closed. Does that make sense? So the front curved piece is flattened out, not folded. The card stays “open”.

Here’s the measurements for this card. I tucked the tabs for the curved front panel behind my apricot patterned paper.

And here’s my two stamp sets…go check them out!
