Paisley & Posies Twisted Fun Fold Card

Twisted Fold Card by Stamps to Die For 1

Today's post is a show and tell, how to make a Twisted Fun Fold card.  It is really much easier than it looks.  You all know I love simple!  


Twisted Card 1450

You are going to start with a piece of cardstock that is 4 1/4" x 11".  
Score from the upper left hand corner to the lower right hand corner.

Then fold your cardstock on the scored mark.  I use a bone folder to go across the fold mark to make a nice fold.

Now make a score mark in the center of the card stock as shown with the blue dashed line.  


Twisted card 4

Fold the card in half at the scored line.

Embellish card as desired!

For my card I choose Flirty Flamingo Cardstock for the card base.  The Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper #141632 on page 172 of the Annual Catalog to give the card a WOW.  You can see some of the gold foil highlights in the paper.  It is hard to see how beautiful this paper is in person!  

The Punches I used for the flowers are...

  • Petite Petals Punch #133322
  • Pansy Punch #130698
  • Tree Builder Punch #138295

I used Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy and Gold Glimmer Paper for the flowers. 

I created a Technique How To Video Series a few years back with over 52 different techniques.  Each Technique includes a How To Video, Technique Page with instructions and a blog post describing them.

The Twisted Fun Fold has been viewed of 70,000 times on YouTube, isn't that unbelievable.

  Triple Time stamping technique using Paisleys & Posies stamp set by Stampin' Up!

You can watch an older video I did showing you how to do the Triple Time Card, but for those who just like to see a picture and go with it I will provide some photo steps. 



For this card I stared with three pieces of Very Vanilla Cardstock (2" x 3 1/4", 3" x 4 1/4"  and 4" x 5 1/4")



Then a applied a VERY SMALL dab of snail to the backside of each piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and layed them as shown above. 

I then stamped them all randomly with the Paisleys & Posies stamps.

I then cut 3 pieces of Night of Navy Cardstock (2 1/4" x 3 1/2", 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and 5 1/2" x 8 1/2")

I folded the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" in half to create card base.


I separated the stamped Very Vanilla cardstocks and adhered them to the Night of Navy Mats.


I then Layered the Mats as shown above.

Fun Fold Card - Book Fold Stamping Technique

Today's card is using a fun fold called the Book Fold.  I guess because it looks like a book inside when you open it.  

Book Fold Card using Stampin' Up Birthday Fiesta & Fiesta Times Framelits Birthday Card with Pinata

This is the inside of the card.  I love the bright colors and the little Lama guy has the most amazing smile.  It might be a little hard to notice the Piñata hanging from the top of the center fold.  

I stamped the cards using my favorite stamp set (right now) called the Birthday Fiesta, Fiesta Time Framelits and Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. 

Colors (1)

My color palette was Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise


Because it would take to long to write out the directions and often times seeing is best I created a stamping video tutorial showing you how to make this card.

Stampin Up Birthday Fiesta and Fiesta Times Framelits Birthday Card

This is the front of the card and what a surprise when they open it up.  While ever birthday card I send is not this many steps, once in a while it is just fun to go all out.  I saw this cute little Piñata idea on pinterest.  Love all the inspiration there is there. 

Now that I think about it I should have made this card into an anniversary card.  Tom and I are celebrating 41 years today!  

Here are the supplies used to create this card.
