Fancy Fold "Birthday/Follow Your Dreams" card

Hello Crafty Friends!  Kathy Jo here today sharing a fancy fold card using Quietfire Designs' Happy Birthday:
Happy Family Days - Set of 4 stamps - Mounted
and Follow Your Dreams stamps:
Follow Your Dreams - Mounted

This card style is one of my favorite fancy folds and is a very elegant way to show the beauty of Quietfire Design stamps.  The card base is surprisingly simple to make: 
  • Cut a piece of card stock to 5.25" by 12".  
  • Score at 2" and 10".  
  • Flip over and score at 4" and 8".  
  • Fold.  Your folded card should look like this:

  • Determine how you want your card front to look:  
  • For the card front background, cut two pieces of the patterned paper to just smaller than 2" x 5.25".  Next, mount the focal point of the card front.  In this example, I mounted the Happy Birthday sentiment on a coordinating die cut doily.  
  • Please note that when mounting, you only adhere the doily to one half of the card front.  Do not apply adhesive to the entire doily back.
  • After completing the card front, it is time to make the inside beautiful.  Stamp the Follow Your Dreams onto coordinating paper and cut to size.  Apply strip of patterned paper vertically as shown.  Mount to inside of card.
The fancy fold card is now complete and ready to give to a special friend or family member to cherish.
Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the card and the tutorial.
Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
