So Tweet Fun Fold

Fun fold cards are... well... fun! I enjoy sending and receiving them so I made a Fold-back Pop-up card. I found tutorials of several examples on YouTube. The planning, cutting, and stamping took a little time but the assembly went quickly.

This card marks the first day of Double Trouble Challenge #92, which runs through Sunday evening, October 3, 2021. As usual, there are three "Things" to consider when playing along with this challenge:

Thing 1 is a required element. Trouble Maker says your project must include a fun fold. This is the only requirement to enter your project. The degree of difficulty for the fun fold is up to you. I like the KISS method - Keep It Simple, Stamper!

Thing 2 is optional. Double Dare will grant you an extra chance at the random draw prize if you link your card to the Creative Creases Challenge #14 so be sure to check out their guidelines.

Thing 3 is also optional. Twisted Sister had a sudden desire to use Play-Doh (maybe it's the scent) so she would like you to use at least one of six Play-Doh colors found in our clip art. At first, I chose orange, then included green but while I was coloring my stamped images, I added yellow and purple and then I ran amok by adding teal and pink. If you give in to Twisted Sister's whim this will earn you an extra chance at our random draw prize. I also added a panel of white cardstock to the back of the green card base for signatures or a personal message. The final touch was adding Glossy Accents to the balloon and the "googly" eyes to the birds. 

Creative Creases Challenge #14 is our partner. Be sure to join Debbie Mageed's challenge by submitting your fun fold project to her blog when you post your project to DTC92.

  1. This is so "tweet"... those little birds captured my heart and I had to have that stamp set. Love the fancy fold and the way you layered the sections.

  2. I love this stamp set and you made them so special on your Fun Fold, and the googly eyes and sentiments are perfect. You created a great trail mix and color combination of M&M's.

  3. This is so fun and creative! And the birds are so cute!

  4. That's way too cute! Love the fun bird images and the sentiment is perfect! :)

  5. This is so super cute! I've never attempted such a fold but maybe I'll have to get on YouTube and try out something new. Very fun card! :)

  6. Oh, goodness, Melanie, this fun fold card is adorable! I just love the fold and the images are so sweet!! Thank you for playing with Creative Creases and hope you can join in again soon.
