The August 2022 Suestampfield Crafternoon Creative Escape fun fold card is here! This card stands for display and has a pop out surprise that wobbles inside – meet the Horizontal Pop Out Bendy Card!
So gorgeous! This fun fold card is a twist on LAST month’s featured fun fold. Welcome to the featured fun fold for the Suestampfield August Crafternoon Creative Escape! Each month I design a fun fold and then make many different designs using that fold. This version is landscape direction which works better for some images and designs. I went a little overboard with designs for this Horizontal Pop Out Bendy Card – there were just SO many options! I 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 beautiful Cottage Wreath Bundle and the Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper. Slip off the Christmas wreath bellyband closure and…
…out pops another gorgeous wreath! I have a video tutorial below that will teach you the basics of the Horizontal Pop Up Bendy card. People who placed a qualifying order with me in July, received the packet to make this card during the Crafternoon public video. Following the class they received 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 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.
What makes the Horizontal 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 vertical floral version of this fold, I adapted the size to fit our US standard 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock and changed up the measurements to have the card be in the landscape version. Then I started creating LOTS of versions to share! For each version I created step by step photo tutorials so that you can recreate them easily.
The Cottage Wreaths bundle is not just for Christmas!
The Cottage Wreaths Bundle is so versatile, I wanted to do an autumn version of the Horizontal Pop Out Bendy card. This time I used the gorgeous stamps in the Cottage Wreaths set. The details on how I got the three colors in the wreath are in the tutorial bundle.
The inside needed to be just as beautiful as the front! Imagine the joy this card would bring when you send it to a friend! This Cottage Wreaths set is so gorgeous – especially when paired up with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder.
This version has a different closure method than the Christmas Cottage Wreaths card at the top of this blog post. Instead of a bellyband, this version has a “catch” closure that holds the card closed. All the details are in the tutorial bundle.
Wow – I love these gorgeous colors with this elegant embossing folder and matching dies!
The Merriest Moments stamp set and the Merriest Frames Hybrid Dies and Embossing Folder is PERFECT for this Horizontal Pop Out Bendy Card! This version is in Merry Merlot with the copper Brushed Metallic cardstock.
This one also features a “catch” closure and when you open it…
Simply gorgeous! What way to wow your friends and family this holiday season with a gorgeous card that you made yourself! In the tutorial I have instructions on how to cut the Brushed Metallic cardstock so that you can get 6 cards from one sheet.
Viewed from above you can see how the inner panel stands out from the card.
I liked this card so much that I made a second version in Blackberrry Bliss with the light bronze color from the Brushed Metallic cardstock. It’s so rich and elegant with the beautiful Merriest Frames Hybrid Dies and Embossing Folder.

There is something so peaceful and yet striking about Navy and White together. The Peace To You stamp set is perfect for making beautiful Christmas cards.
Inside the card we have the lovely nativity scene from the Peace To You stamp set. In the tutorial I have instruction on how to get such a nice, dark image with these mostly solid stamps. The wonderful sentiments from the Hope & Peace stamp set are the perfect compliment to the scene.
Brightest Glow Christmas cards are perfect for this style of fun fold.
You can create so many unique cards with the dies in the Brightest Glow Bundle! They are amazing, especially with the details that you can create. The “dots” on the inside of the card have gold foil behind them, so pretty to have it peeking through! The tree is die cut from the glorious Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper. You can see how the entire center panel with the tree pops out from the rest of the card!
The Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper also has Soft Succulent patterns too. Of course I just HAD to do another version with that color. This special card was designed for my Stampfield Stars team members who are direct to me. These warm and wonderful people joined my Stampfield Stars family by purchasing the Demonstrator Starter Kit through me. Once they purchase the starter kit they started getting a discount on ALL their future purchases as a demonstrator. My Stampfield Stars team always get the Crafternoon tutorial bundles for free. Since August was my 25th anniversary, I sent a project packet to my direct demonstrators to make this lovely card. I love you Stampfield Stars!!
So pretty on the inside! How beautiful is the snowflake embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders? It is just perfect for this style of card!!
The last two cards feature die sets that are ONLY available in September, while supplies last.
And the inside of the card is stunning! As you jiggle the card the branch moves gently, just like it is blowing in a soft breeze. These Apple Blossom dies are available in September only. You can purchase just the Apple Blossom dies alone or you can purchase the Apple Harvest bundle that includes the matching stamp set. These dies are while supplies last and could sell out at any time.
Need to make a bright and bold birthday card? The Biggest Wish stamp set will help you! This card also features a “catch” closure instead of a bellyband. One of the fun features about the Horizontal Pop Out Bendy Card is that the image on the inside of the card is a “wobble”. Imagine the joy and delight when this card is opened and jiggled…
To see This Little Birthday Piggy going for a fun wagon ride! “Go to your happy place and stay there all day” – yes please! If your happy place is in your crafting space, then this is the the perfect stamp set for you! The dies featured here are an exclusive and are only available in September while supplies last. You can purchase them in the This Little Birthday Piggy Bundle, with the matching stamp set. Or if you already have the stamp set, you can purchase just the Playful Piggy Dies.
If you received this card you would want to display it, right? This is the what the card looks like standing up for display – so adorable!
