I had just attempted a 3D cube card (you can see it here), and wanted to make one a little smaller, so this was a perfect opportunity! So here we go:
I needed a birthday card for one of Cassidy's friends from church...he is turning ten tomorrow, and he's as smart as a whip, as most ten-year-olds are! I thought he would enjoy the engineering of this card! The base of my card is Just Jade, and I used some retired Birthday Bonanza DSP, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight cardstocks for accents. I stamped one of the dinosaurs in Just Jade and added a Pumpkin Pie accent, then mounted him on a Tasteful Label die stamped with a sentiment and stars from Label Me Bold:
The punched stars were attached with an acetate strip, bringing the size of the card, when folded, up to a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2":
I stamped a sentiment from A Grand Kid to fit on the lower cubes:
And this is how it folds up to fit into a standard envelope:
This is a wee bit different than my other card, but I got the directions from the same blog; you can see the directions HERE.....the video is helpful, and he has the dimensions in inches below the video!
The design team made some awesome creations using fabulous and fancy folds! Be sure to hop over to the Paper Players blog and get some inspiration....then share your fancy folded card with us! Can't wait to see it!
Not a dinosaur, but who can resist a little boy with a kitten? My great-nephew Sawyer:
I just want to eat him up! Thanks for popping in today---enjoy it and be blessed!
