The Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold Card!

The July 2022 Suestampfield Crafternoon Creative Escape fun fold card stands for display and has a pop out surprise inside – meet the Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold Card!

I love a good fun fold card – and this Pop Up Bendy Fun Fold Card is amazing! This first version looks just like a front door all decorated for Christmas. Slip off the decorated bellyband closure and…

…out pops a gorgeous holiday greeting! Welcome to the Suestampfield July Crafternoon featured fun fold! Each month I design a fun fold and then make many different designs using that fold. I have a video tutorial below that will teach you the basics of the Pop Up Bendy Fun Fold card. I also have an option to purchase a detailed step-by-step tutorial bundle for ALL of the projects shown in this blog post. This first version features the stunning Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle and the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper.

What makes the Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold Card so unique is the bendy arm inside. In this top down view you can see how the arm curves outward. At the center of the bendy arm is a “wobble” made from cardstock that allows the inside piece to jiggle – so fun! I was inspired to create this fold by Sam from Mixed Up Crafts. She did a large floral version of this fold, I adapted the size to fit our standard 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock size and then I went I started creating LOTS of versions to share! And then I created step by step photo tutorials for ALL of them so that you can recreate them quickly and easily.

You may be wondering where you sign a card like this. On the back of this card there are two decorated panels to sign the card and write your Christmas message. Ready to look at some other versions of this fold?!

Fun with FREE Sale-a-bration products using this beautiful fun fold design!

I love FREE products – don’t you?! This version of the Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold card uses the beautiful Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Designer Paper and stamp set. The Wonderful World products are free with a qualifying order in July and August while supplies last – so don’t miss out!

Those who placed a qualifying order with me last month, received the packet to make this card during the Crafternoon public video. Following the class they receive the PDF tutorial bundle for all the card designs with dimensions, step by step instructions, photos, and the supply list for the projects. You can view the same video below and will learn how to make this version of the card. I would love to send you a packet for next month’s Crafternoon featured fun fold! Just place an order of $50 or more (before tax and shipping) in my online store and you will be included. No host code is needed.

In the Wonderful World Pop Up Bendy Fun Fold Tutorial (which is part of the tutorial bundle), I shared a pink version of the card above and…

…in case you would prefer to write on the inside of the card instead of on the back of the card, for this version I left off the Designer Series Paper panels in the center of the card so that you could write your sentiment right below the pop out image!

The versions above feature pop out circles of flowers that were die cut right out of the paper. This version features the Wonderful World Stamp Set on the inside. In the tutorial I give you my favorite method for coloring on the stamp to get clear images of these beautiful stamps.

May I share more Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold Card designs with you? This one is one of my favorites!

Wow! The Perched In A Tree bundle paired with the Brushed Metallics Cardstock is SO perfect for fall! I’ve also added the beautiful new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder to decorate the front AND the inside of the card!

Inside the card is the gorgeous aspen grove from the Perched in a Tree Bundle. In the tutorial bundle I share a sneaky little paper saving tip to get the most out of your metallic cardstocks. Of course because of the “wobble” on the bendy arm these Quaking Aspen really quake!

This card can be signed on the back OR in the tutorial bundle I give you another option if you would prefer to sign the card on the inside.

Ah masculine cards. They can be such a challenge sometimes! I find a card with moving parts, like this Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold card makes a perfect “guy” card! This version features the Sale-a-bration Tree Lot dies which are free with a qualifying purchase (while supplies last).

I paired the dies with the Trees For Sale stamp set and the He’s the Man Designer Series Paper. Of course the dog is making the camper jiggle and shake (well, actually it’s you shaking the card and the wobble hidden behind that is making it jiggle). The greetings used for this card are from the Celebrate With Tags stamp set.

In the tutorial bundle I also include a simpler version of the card without the Trees For Sale stamp set. For this version I used the pines embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.

Ready for a little Halloween fun?!

Tee-hee! For this fun card I paired the Bewitched Bundle with the sentiments in the Best Witches stamp set. The Glitter Washi tape is the perfect way to decorate the hat! For the front of the card I used the Metallic & Shimmer 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper.

Inside the card is the adorable feet from the Bewitched stamp set – so cute! I also used the Black & White Designs 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper – so perfect for Halloween cards!

For the backside of the card I added panels to sign and write a note, decorated with more of that super fun Glitter Washi of course!
