Fun Fold Card

I have been wanting to do this card since I did one like it at a stamp club meeting and when I saw the challenge at Sunny Challenges & Creations this week which was to make a fancy fold card, I knew this is the one I would do.  Actually I am not sure of the name of the fold, but Nancy Lewis showed it to us in one of our stamp camps a couple of months ago.  I am also using this for the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week which is to use Red, White and blue.  So here you have it.

The following photos show the card from a total open stage until the closure stage so that you can see how it works.  Also, if you know the name of the type fold it is, please let me know.

Fully Open!!

Close left side!

Now close the right side!

Partly open on both sides!

OK, there you have it.  Such a fun card to do.  Here are the dimensions of the card.

Card Base: Whisper White, 8 1/2 X 4 1/4, score at 3 1/2
Layer 1: DSP on the Whisper White, 3 1/4 X 4
Layer 2: Real Red, 8 1/2 X 3, score at 4 1/2. Attach longer side of Real Red to longer, right side of base.  Whisper White should open to the left and real red should open to the right. (real red will be on the top of the card.
Layer 3: Navy, 2 3/4 X 3 3/4 on top of the red (on outside)
Layer 4: Whisper White, 2 3/4 X 2 3/4
Layer 5: DSP 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 on top of the Whisper White
Layer 6: Navy, 2 3/8 X 2 3/8
Layer 7: Whisper White, 2 1/4 X 2 1/4 (on top of the Navy)
Punch flower or stamp on top with whatever you would like to decorate it with.  In our class, we used the cupcake punch and put a sentiment on the white also.

So there you have it.  Stamp Set is Mixed bunches and the punch is called Blossoms Punch, both Stampin' Up!  Stamp set on the inside is called Blessings from Heaven by Stampin' Up!

Thanks for looking and hope your day is blessed!
