Fun Folds and Pandas

Hello and Happy Thursday! Today I have a happy card to share with you. I got my fun fold idea from fellow demonstrator Rachel from Stamp Your Art Out. She actually came up with the measurements and folds for this card. I just took it and used my own stamp and designer series paper. And it came out just too cute if I may say so myself. But HUGE kudos to Rachel for coming up with this really fun fold card design. I love it and it's so easy to do. She's a genius!
Anyway, lets get started. I began with a half sheet of cardstock 4.25" x 11" and scored it at 2.75"; 4.25"; 7.25" and 8.5"; then accordion fold - see the video;
Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4" x 2.25" for the bottom "layer". You are going to assemble this card from the bottom to top. I stamped "Happy Birthday" sentiment in Basic Gray ink and added "confetti" using Bermuda Bay ink along the left edge. Adhere this to the bottom layer. Then cut 2 pieces of designer series paper 4" x 4" (I used the reverse side of one piece from the Bubble and Fizz Sale-a-bration paper and they complimented perfectly) and adhere one of the pieces to the center layer, making sure to line it up so that you are covering the Whisper White layer below. Then cut a second piece of Whisper White 4" x 1.25" and stamp "Love You" in the Basic Gray archival ink and add "confetti" on either side of the sentiment with Bermuda Bay ink and adhere to the center of the DSP, taking care to ensure it's high enough to be covered by the last piece of DSP added to the top of the card when closed.
Next, add the last 4" x 4" piece of DSP to the top layer. Stamp the Panda in Basic Gray Archival ink, add the "Hi" to his envelope and cut him out using a stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelit collection and layer it onto a scalloped oval cut from Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Layering Ovals collection. For a final touch, I added a Whisper White Bakers Twine bow just under his little feet with a Mini Glue Dot.
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did. I had a lot of fun putting this together.These little panda's just make me smile anyway, add all the happy colors from the DSP and you have a win win card all the way around and the fun fold just makes it that much more HAPPY! And who couldn't use a little more happy in their life? If you would love to make this card, below is a list of supplies I used. The Party Pandas and the designer series paper are Sale-a-bration products....the only way to get these is free with a qualifying purchase. These are both level one options so for a $50 purchase you can select one of these awesome options...for $100, you can select both! Sale-a-bration ends in just 9 days, so don't wait too long because after 3/31 all these awesome Sale-a-bration goodies go away forever....and that's a sad thing.
