Two Tropical Leaf Bundle Fun Folds One Design

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have two fun fold cards to share with you using the Tropical Leaf Bundle. I used the same design but created them in two different ways. I shared with my Sale-A-Bration Celebration attendees on how to make this card at the first of March during the event, but wanted to share it with you all also.

Version #1:

For the first version of the card I used Vellum Basics Specialty Paper for the fun fold part of the card. I then added the Vellum layer to the card front which was cut from Crushed Curry Cardstock. The card base was layered with a piece of Basic White Cardstock and a piece of the Flowers & More Designer Series Paper.

When you open the card up you pull the vellum and it opens up into a Tri-fold. Underneath the focal image on the inside of the card is a piece of Basic White where you can write your personal message. If you need more room to write you can always add an additional piece of Basic White to the back of the card.

Version #2:

For the second version of the card I turned the card in a vertical landscape. I switched out the Vellum fun fold layer for a piece of the Flowers & More Host Designer Series Paper.

By changing the way the card is laid out, you can change the way the card opens as you can see below.
