Bridge fold cards are so fun! Easy to make but looks really impressive – my favorite kind of craft project! Scroll down for a free Project Sheet PDF of this project.
The cards stand for display but they also fold flat to fit in a standard envelope.
I made three versions, all of them are made with the Floral Essence Bundle (the Floral Essence Stamp Set paired with the Perennial Flower Punch) and the GORGEOUS Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.
This version uses Pretty Peacock, Rich Razzleberry, and Mossy Meadow cardstock – such a rich look!! The Floral Essence stamp set has an image that matches the Leaf Punch – it's the perfect complement to the flower! I stamped the flower image in Blackberry Bliss on to Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The Gold Faceted Gems made the perfect center for this flower.
For this version I went with crisp and clean – I used Thick Whisper White for the base with another pattern from the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper and stamped the flower in Rich Razzleberry. I used the Clear Faceted Gem for the flower center.
I changed up the flower on this version. I stamped the flower image 4 times, punched out all 4 and layered them with glue dots for a "fluffier" flower. The base for this version is Petal Pink cardstock and the leaves are Pear Pizzazz. The cute and fuzzy Perennial Essence Floral Centers are so easy to use and look so realistic! The sticky is already on the back, just peel and stick!
One of the more unique things about this fun fold card is that you have the inside message (and your personal note or signature) on the back of the card.

The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is SO stunning! Each sheet was watercolored by a Stampin' Up! artist and then reproduced. The lovely patterns remind me of paintings by Monet. You could just put this paper in a frame and hang it on your wall, it's THAT lovely! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
