Square Fun Fold Card

Hello my friends!
Here's another card in my Flip Flap Card series.


Stampin' Up stamp set, Epic Celebrations
Image colored with Stampin' Blends
Pattern papers and cardstock also from SU

Lots of space to write or stamp a sweet message on the inside.


It's a great way to use up some scrap pieces
of pattern papers and cardstock.
And of course it mails flat with no extra postage.
That's always nice.

I cut out several of Lori Whitlock's Flip Flap cards
but I didn't cut the card bases - just the decorative pieces.
A while back I found a way to make these cards
in a much simpler way. Is simpler a word? It is now.

Instead of cutting out the card base
 (which is confusing to me to figure out which way it folds),
I fold a regular A2 size card, 
then fold the front cover back onto itself.
I add the card decorative pieces
only attaching the center overlapping piece
on the left of the folded front cover.
I'm telling you - it's so much less frustrating and easier this way!

Big hugs to you all!
:) Janis

Love the fold on this card and thank you for the explanation. I may give it a try. I avoid different folds like the plague. This definitely makes it sound easy. Love the simple design and beautiful colors. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Designs in Pink. We hope to see you again next time!
