Free As A Bird Fun Fold

Hello and Happy Tuesday to ya! Hubby is on vaca this week so it's been a busy few day's with him home. Next week we will both be on vaca from our day jobs and that will be a first in a VERY long time and boy will Tucker be one happy little puppy! He's a totally different little dog when both of his peeps are home with him. He has terrible separation anxiety the poor little bugger. He loves company, but he looses his mind when they're about to leave. We often wonder if he decides they are "his personal toys" because, trust me, he doesn't like you to touch "HIS" stuff! No, he's not "mean" in the sense that he bites, but he will "snatch" his toy's from you hand like "no, that's mine and don't TOUCH IT!" Good thing he's so stinkin' cute!
Anyway, today's card is from Sunday's Facebook Live featuring the Free As A Bird stamp set and I promised, dimensions and instructions would follow here. So, here they are so that you can recreate this card and the supply list can be found below. This card uses a fun fold fold. I'm not even sure what this fold is called, so if any of you out there know what fold this is, please let me know...inquiring minds want to know! 
To begin, you will need a card base of Daffodil Delight cut 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 2 1/4" and 7". Fold and burnish your score lines and using the Layering Circles dies. Add a piece of Bird Ballad DSP measuring 2" x 4" to the top flap. Then,  I used the die that came closest to 2 1/2" and die cut it by centering it over the 2 1/4" fold line off to the right of the card. I then die cut another piece of scrap Daffodil Delight using the same die. I layered a piece of Bird Ballad DSP cut 4" x 3 3/4"on the outside panel created by the 7" fold and a piece of Whisper White cut the same size to the inside of the flap.
Die cut another circle in Petal Pink and stamp the single bird in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color the bird in with your Stampin' Blends, I used Soft Suede and Petal Pink with a little Daffodil Delight for his beak. Then die cut with the next smaller Layering Circle die. Stamp "Hello" from the stamp set using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and layer all the circles together. Close up the card, add adhesive to the exposed area and adhere the die cut image. You now have a fun fold card.
I love coloring with my Blends, they are so easy to use and whether you're into blending or not, these markers make you look like you know what you're doing. So, don't shy away from them. The price point for them is amazing. If you check the Big Box stores for alcohol markers, they are as much as $7-$9 a marker on sale. Blends are $9 for the duo! Hellooooo? You can't beat that!
Well, I hope you enjoyed today's card. Thanks so much for stopping by to check it out and hang out with me.
