I have a fun card fold to share with you today. I was visiting my friend Linda Bauwin, in Ohio a few weeks ago and I saw this fun and simple fold she had done on one of her class cards. I was surprised at how easy it was to make. Linda always has great card fold ideas and I always love visiting with her to see all of her fun creations.
So, I had create a Dutch Door card fold of my own. I thought the Carousel Birthday stamp set would work perfectly for this card idea.
Plus, I had to create a card for a swap that I host with other demonstrators across the country that have served on the Stampin' Up Advisory Board. These girls are top notch, so I wanted to share something that they could easily use in their own classes and workshops.
The bottom of the card opens like a "dutch door." How clever is that? I used all the coordinating accessories from the Carousel Birthday suite. The Cupcakes and Carousel designer paper is so perfect for this carnival card. I love how the Layering Oval framlits work together. I used both the smooth edge and scallop edge ovals for this card. There are 15 ovals in the set, so there are lots to choose from!
Here's what it looks like on the inside.
I think it came together really well. I love all the fun colors in this suite.
If you'd like to learn how to create this Carousel Birthday card, I have a video posted below with all the instructions and details for you.
Here's a few more samples... same card, different patterns from the Cupcakes and Carousel designer paper.
And the big bunch of swaps...
Its such an easy and cool card fold. I hope you'll give it a try!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
