Mother's Day Card With a Fun Fold

Recently, a stamping friend sent me a card with a fun fold I'd never seen before.  It was so intriguing that I had to make one, too.  Since Mother's Day is around the corner, I pulled out the retiring Tea Together stamp set and its matching dies and got to work (by the way, those dies are only $8.40!).

The elegance of this set pairs perfectly with Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper (also retiring but also discounted!).  That little touch of champagne foil in the printed paper's script makes me swoon!  I cannot explain why these things make me so happy but.....they do.

And there's the Fun Fold!  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create a decorative edge to the printed paper and the Pool Party cardstock underneath.

The card still opens like a regular one, so you can write a nice message to Mom inside.  But the addition of the fold on the front lets you add a beautiful surprise!

The Tea Together set has a beautiful Mother's Day sentiment that nestles perfectly in a die from Ornate Frames (remember that gem from the Holiday Catalog last fall? You can still get it!).  I had to add lots of pretties - Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon, Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, and Basics Pearls (the tiniest ones).

Watch the video to see how this fun fold card was made by clicking the image below.  This card is the first one I demonstrated in the video (the second card is a Father's Day Fun Fold).
