Creating Kindness: Fancy Fold

Hey friends! It is Creating Kindness time again. I love creative time with this group. The theme this month is Fancy Fold. I thought I would use my absolute favorite, I am calling it a Stand Up Tier card.

And there is a video! I am trying really hard to create lots of videos for you all. Have you subscribed to my channel yet? Don't forget!!

Here is the card. I used some My Favorite Things stamps and dies to create this.

Here is the basic how-to for this card.

  • Start with a 4¼"x7" piece of cardstock, score on the long side at 1½" and 5½".
  • Cut a piece of cardstock to 4½" wide and several inches long, and score at ¼" and 4¼". Crease well. Apply Scor-Tape on the ¼" flaps. Then you can trim each tier down to whatever size you need and it is all ready to be adhered to the inside of the card.
  • Figure out the placement of your images, and adhere to the tiers. 
  • Open the cardbase up, and start adhering your tiers, the furthest back and tallest tier first. Line the outer edge of the flap up with the side panel crease. Lay the next layer down, loning up with the flap crease of the tier behind it. Repeat for all tiers. Fold flap over onto the exposed adhesive. (the video shows this process very well to clear up any confusion) 
  • Line the flaps from the other side up even with the bottom of the card, remove the adhesive backing, and fold the other side of the cardbase down over the flaps to adhere them all at once. 
  • Open it up and marvel at the adorable card you just made!

Look how darn cute these critters are!! My Favorite Things has 2 sets of Sweater Weather critters, Safari and Woodland. I have them both. Why wouldn't I?! 😁

Copic colors
Tiger: Y38, YR68, W5, R01
Elephant: W1, W3, R01

I struggled with colors for the giraffe, so please. Share your color combos for him especially!

I love that this folds flat and is not bulky at all, which makes it the perfect 3D card for mailing!

And it fits perfectly in an A2 envelope! You can easily write your personal message on the back of the card.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Be sure to leave me some love. I would love to hear if you have made this fold before, and if you have, are you trying it soon?
