The Vertical Freestanding Fun Fold Card!

The June 2022 Suestampfield Crafternoon Creative Escape fun fold card folds out and stands for display – meet the Vertical Freestanding Fun Fold Card!

I love having a card stand for display! And this Vertical Freestanding Fun Fold Card does exactly that! A little color was added to just one flower on the Abigail Rose Designer Series paper so that it “pops” out. These neutral colors of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso are so soothing. Petal Pink adds a warm glow.

The card opens out and stands for display, with an extra message inside the fold out portion. Welcome to the Suestampfield June 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 showing the basics of the Vertical Freestanding Fun Fold card, and an option to purchase a detailed tutorial bundle for ALL of the projects. This first version features the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and the Cottage Rose Bundle.

Those who placed a qualifying order with me last month, received the packet to make this card during the 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. 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.

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

I love FREE products – don’t you?! This version of the Vertical Freestanding Fun Fold card uses the beautiful Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Designer Paper and stamp set. The Wonderful World products are free this month with a qualifying order – yay!

One of the best things about this style of fun fold card is all of the areas to display your beautiful Designer Series Papers! Earlier this year, I created a landscape version of this fun fold card. You can see the landscape Freestanding Fun Fold cards HERE.

Are you ready for more Vertical Freestanding Fun Fold Card designs? There are lots more!

The beautiful Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper and the True Beauty bundle make truly stunning cards! Wait until you see the inside!

Inside the card is a pretty trellis complete with climbing flowers! I added some contrast to the flower center with a blender pen and some ink refill. The full details are in the tutorial. This unique trellis die is part of the dies in the True Beauty bundle. This trellis adds such a unique twist to your cards!

The full card on display. What a beautiful way to send someone birthday wishes!

The versatile Season of Chic bundle and the beautiful Texture Chic Designer Series Paper make stunning cards! The layering piece and some of the elements use the stunning Distressed Gold paper. I share a trick in the tutorial on how to get the most from your Distressed Gold paper for this card design.

I had so much fun creating these that I did three version: a flower version, a seashell version, and a Christmas / winter version with the snowflake die from the set. In addition to the the seashells, flowers, and snowflake in the set, there is also some fall leaf dies. So you could make this card for every season.

Special extended version of the Vertical Freestanding Fun Fold Card with the Gnomes!

Cuteness alert!! I fell in love with the adorable Kindest Gnomes bundle. The matching Storybook Gnomes Designer Paper is (of course) the perfect complement to this fun bundle. I got creative with the dies in the bundle to make “mittens” for my gnome too! All the details are in the extensive step-by-step tutorial.

This version of the card has an extended panel that opens out for even more decorating possibilities. One of the things that I love about the Storybook Gnomes Designer Paper is that you can die cut images right out of the paper with the dies from the bundle. I die cut the “gnome home” and the gnome girl from the paper. Then I decorated the extra panel with these fun images. The snowflake pattern in the Wintry Embossing Folder two pack is so perfect for this design from the paper! This folder pack sold out for a while last year near the holidays . If you don’t have it yet I recommend ordering it early.

From this “top down” view you can get a better feel for how the extended panel folds open. I had so much fun creating this card that I just had to do another version!

More fun with free Sale-a-bration products on this alternate gnome design!

Say hello to this happy little Poppy Parade gnome with the Poinsettia hat! For this woodland gnome I used the FREE Sale-a-bration Rings of Love Designer Series Paper. I also used the Timber 3D embossing folder.

Inside the card I carried through with the woodland theme by using another pattern from the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper. So cute – and the paper is free with a qualifying order! All of the details for this card are included in the tutorial bundle, along with all the other cards shown in this blog post.

This photo shows the detail of the embossing a bit better. The Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems add the finishing touch! Many of the cards in this tutorial bundle feature the versatile Stylish Shapes Dies. I am finding that these dies go with almost every project I make! Definitely a wise investment to add to your paper crafting tools.

  1. Thank You so much for sending me the information on your cards.
    I really like your cards and they are really lovely, but I’m in Canada and sending and getting stuff is becoming to be difficult.
