Let’s create our own field of daffodils. The pop-up box fold is a fabulous way to show off all those 3D daffodils. This card was created for my WOW Team Card Swap.
I’ll be showing off all the other cards from the swap soon. My Team always knocks it out of the park. You won’t want to miss it, be sure to subscribe to my blog to receive posting notifications.
Did you know that you can earn the beautiful Daffodil Afternoon DSP for FREE during Sale-a-Bration. Yep, that’s right. Order your Daffodil Daydream Bundle and choose the designer paper for your reward.
Because I chose the pop-up box fold, I was able to add multiples of the daffodils and butterflies to fill my scene.
My color palette of Very Vanilla, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz was inspired by the designer series paper. That’s an easy way to get those creative juices flowing.
With the pop-up box fold, there’s an entire panel on the back for your message and more stamped images.
The new Brushed Brass Butterflies (say that fast 3x) in the new January-June Mini Catalog are my favorite new embellishment. They are shiny, lightweight, self-adhesive and don’t add bulk to your cards. Now that’s what I call a card maker’s dream.
Don’t forget to dress up those envelopes. For this one, I’ve stamped and colored, with my blends on the front. Then I just couldn’t resist adding a liner with the beautiful paper. I think it’s a showstopper. Ready to learn how to create my pop-up box fold? Visit my YouTube Channel where I’ve posted the free video tutorial.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, fancy folds are easy. All you have to do is break it down step by step. I love challenging myself to learn something new. Make 2022 the year where you will try it too. The inside pop-up mechanism really is easy. Here’s a template that shows the scoring and trimming.

By creating all this dimension, you can really show off the designer series paper as well as your stamping skills.
But a card like this, really needs a box envelope for presentation. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Here’s a template to use when creating your envelope.

My Dad is about to celebrate his 91st birthday. Time for a special card, don’t you think? My Grassy Grove Shadowbox Fancy Fold is so Dad. He loves everything outdoors and nature inspired. A farmer his whole life, there’s no big surprise about that.
My color combination for today’s project is a bit Fall inspired. We’ve got Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, Old Olive and Basic White. To achieve both the detailed trees and the blue sky background, I’ve used the fabulous new Sale-a-Bration item, Simply Marvelous DSP.
Even if you don’t want to kick it up a notch with the Grassy Grove shadowbox, you can create this lovely card front and have a fabulous masculine card design. But, as you know, you’re only 91 once. And Dad loves it when I create interactive cards for him.
By using my handy Stampin’ Write Markers in Old Olive and Cinnamon Cider, I was able to ink up the tree stamp. That way, I could easily achieve two colors in the image.
Is that die cut not gorgeous? I love the way the deers are nestled up behind the trees. It looks like they are taking a walk in the forest.
Because I used all but one die from the set, this card gives you a true feel for what you can create when you purchase this new bundle.
That lovely sentiment is from another new Jan-June Mini Catalog offering. The Flowering Tulips Bundle is another great set. When I saw that sentiment, I knew I wanted to use it in Dad’s card.
The Grassy Grove Bundle can be found on page 47. It’s a 9-piece cling stamp set with a 10-piece coordinating die set. Not only for masculine card designs, I can see this one used in your Christmas card making too!
Creating the Grassy Grove shadowbox fancy fold isn’t difficult. With just a few easy score lines, you’re on your way. Click here to view my FREE video tutorial filled with all the tips and tricks.

I couldn’t wait to use the 3-point fancy fold for my Mom’s 88th birthday card. I’ve used the gorgeous Hand-Penned DSP as the star of the show. Why? Because my Mom loves flowers and those soft colors will make her smile.
But wait, I see two of those 3-Point fancy fold cards. I only need the one for Mom and would love to bless someone with the other. To enter to win, leave a comment on this post. I’ll put all the names on my prize wheel and will announce a winner on my next post. Good luck everyone. Ok, back to the card, I know you are all dying to know how to make it,
One of my lovely team members, Lisa Lepine, recently created a Christmas card with the 3-point fancy fold. As soon as I saw it, I knew I would adapt the fold for Mom’s birthday card. Thanks for the inspiration Lisa. Because Mom likes to display her cards for a few days, this fold is perfect.
Mom also loves nature, flowers and wildlife. Because I incorporated a little yellow in the card, she will know it came from my heart to hers.
You could add as much or as little to this card to make it your own. You guys know I love to step things up a notch. And of course I had to make it extra special for her birthday.

My sweet sister’s birthday is fast approaching. Since she too, is a nature girl, I’ve created an inside fancy spinner card showcasing lots of nature inspired elements.
Right off the bat, I just have to sing the praises of that gorgeous designer series paper. The Simply Elegant Specialty DSP is filled with copper, gold and silver foiling. You can find that one in our Annual Catalog on page 133. Be sure to scoop up a couple packs. I’ll bet you thank me later.
Because I fussy cut a few of the flowers from the paper, I was able to create quick and easy embellishments for my focal image. And don’t you just love those sweet little bees? I think they were just the right touch.
Are you ready to open up this beauty? In the still photos, you’ll see all the detail, but be sure to watch the video tutorial to see the magic truly happen.
To cut the intricate image to house the butterfly for my inside fancy spinner, I turned to the Birds & More die set. How pretty is that? You could cut a plain circle, but why when you have a die like this.
Did you know we have Gold Vellum? Oh yes we do and it’s shimmery at that. That’s what I’ve used on the butterfly. Not only will it spin, but it will sparkle as well.
Because there are two inside panels, I added a stamped image on one and still have place to write my sentiment on the other. Ready to learn how to create this one?
