PP683 Birthday Fun Fold

Happy Sunday, everyone, Happy Resurrection Day! I hope you'll be able to spend time with family and friends this wonderful day!  Ann is our Paper Players hostess this week and since it's a fifth Sunday, we have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge:


I needed a birthday card for a young lady at our church, so I chose the diagonal line of designer paper, fun fold and pastels for my row!  We made this fold at our recent club meeting, and I've been making lots of them! They're very easy! Here we go:

I must give credit to Juli at Sunny Day Stamping.  She has all the directions and a wonderful video that shows very clearly how to cut and fold the cardstock for this card, as well as a hint for cutting the DSP.  You can see it  HERE.  She's a sweetheart!  So I cut my card base from Basic White cardstock, then went looking in my plethora of printed papers to find some pastel colors.  I found this really fun glitter paper that had sodas, donuts, candy and other treats, all glittered up!  Truly, the photo doesn't do it justice!  There is actually a cup of coffee on it too but since I didn't think that was appropriate for a 12yo, I covered it up with a tag and sentiment from Hooray for Surprises, stamped in Balmy Blue and tied with some retired glimmer ribbon and a little bit of twine:

The center panel is some Bubble Bath glimmer paper for more sparkle, and the back is some glossy green chevron:

When you unfold it, you can see the sentiment and the little cake & candle I stamped on the inside:

This fold is so versatile, you can make it go in either direction!  

I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week! The other designers came up with some fun creations as well! Check everything out at the Paper Players blog!  See you there!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Your paper stash never fails to impress me! I love this little fold - deceptively simple looking but it's all in the details. It's a fun birthday card.

What a fun fold, LeAnne! I am going to have to check out the video. The sparkly pattern paper is absolutely adorable, and pairs so well with the Bubble Bath glimmer paper and the glossy green paper. Your young friend will LOVE it! You certainly made my challenge this week sparkle!

LeAnne, such a fun fold I can see why you have used it several times. It's a great way to showcase some fabulous DSP. I love the bold lime green with those frosty cupcakes and sweet treats. The glittery ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.
