Cute & Easy Fun Fold Card - Happiness Abounds

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute and easy fun fold card to share with you. I used the Happiness Abounds Bundle for todays card. Here's a look at the card.

Happiness Abounds:

The Happiness Abounds Bundle includes the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set and the Blossoming Happiness Dies. You can create all-occasion paper crafts with beautiful floral designs by pairing the stamps and the dies. The open pieces of the die set fit all stamped images. Create the look you want, from a simple floral arrangement to a more sophisticated blossoming masterpiece. I went with a simple floral arrangement today for this fun fold design.

The Happiness Abounds Stamp Set allows you to create elegant handmade cards and make someone's day. The set features all-occasion sentiments in a mix of script and simple block fonts to celebrate those you love with greetings in various sizes. It also has some beautiful line-art floral images which are perfect for coloring. I only did a little simple coloring on my project today because I really wanted to the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and the fun fold to shine. Whether you go for simple or more sophisticated projects, it will sure make someone happy!

Fun Fold Card:

For the actually fun fold design itself it's pretty simple to create and it's open to a lot of possibilities! I used a piece of Mango Melody Cardstock cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". I scored it at 2", 3 1/8", 5 3/8", & at 6 1/2". The middle of the card will be folded up and the sides get folded back and in to look like wings on the sides. This card will actually fit into a regular A2 Basic White Medium Envelope.

On the inside of the back panel is where you will put your Basic White Cardstock panel cut at 2" x 5 1/4" where you can have a place to write your personal message.

The reason I said that it can be open to possibilities because you can use anything on the front panel as long as it doesn't go past the two sides when folded. It could be a circle, square, or any shape as long as it doesn't go over. The two side panels pieces of DSP are 1 3/4" x 5 1/4".

Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper:

For the card I used the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper that will allow you to turn your next paper crafting project into a colorful artistic masterpiece. The Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper comes in a 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) size. So, you can create a lot of projects and cards with it. This canvas-looking paper features illustrated and painted flowers on one side with all-purpose patterns on the other side.

The Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper was designed to represent the Stampin' Up! color spectrum, which means you can pick a lot of different colors to go with it or to play with together to create different projects. I love the repeating patterns which can be used as focal images or as accent pieces on your card bases and/or your scrapbook layouts. Or you can just create elegant backgrounds with the color gradient patterned sheets as well.

On my card today I picked one of the gradient patterns to use on the front of the fun fold and two of the floral patterns to use on the two sides that stand out.

Cardstock measurements:

  • Mango Melody Cardstock (base) - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 2", 3 1/8", 5 3/8", & at 6 1/2"

  • Hues of Happiness DSP for the two sides - 1 3/4" x 5 1/4" you need two

  • Hues of Happiness DSP for the center - 2" x 5 1/4"

  • Basic White Cardstock (inside) - 2" x 5 1/4"

  • Front shape can be any shape as long as it doesn't go pass the two sides when folded.
