An Easy Fun Fold Card for a Thank You note

Blog Hop KB

Are you into easy fun fold cards to make? I know I love to incorporate fun folds for my cards, however I also look for the ones that are easy to make as I don’t have too much time to be doing one single card in hours..

So when I find easy fun folds you can hear me squeal in my craft room.. Even better if it maximizes my cardstock! 

But before we start, I want to make sure you know this post is part of an amazing blog hop, where demonstrators around the globe are sharing thank you cards! so please hop with us and visit all participating blogs, I am sure you will get lots of inspiration. 

So without further ado, let’s get started!

Easy Fun Fold Card

As mentioned above, for my thank you card, I wanted to use and easy fun fold. Mainly because this adds a little of a WOW to your card, and it doesn’t take forever to make.  

See below how this card looks. Is this not a beautiful Thank you cards? Who would want to get one of this cards in the mail? Right? 

Easy Fun fold to make for a Thank you card.

As far as the construction of this fun fold card, the base of this card uses one piece of cardstock that is 4 1/4″ x 11″, you score it at 5 1/2″ and then you cut a 2 3/4″ piece from the long side, to have a piece that is 4 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ which is the one that goes on the front as the top layer.  (You can watch the video tutorial below) 

Then you just need to cut 2 pieces of DSP. In my sample the one on the flap of the card is 2 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ and the second piece (dots pattern) is 2 1/2″ x 4″. 

For the inside I use a 5″ x 3 3/4″ basic white cardstock. And then I just embellished the front with the flowers as well as the bow and the sentiment using the Flowers of Friendship bundle. 

To finish off the card, I colored the rhinestones with stamping blends in daffodil delight and add them to my card front as well as the flowers, and then add a bow using the Polished Pink open weave ribbon. 

Color Combination 

For this card I decided to use the following color combination 

Since I was using the Party Pattern designer series paper, and I wanted to use the Black and White pattern, I knew I wanted to use the pink to pop some color in my card. 

I love how well these colors go together, and I have use this color combo in several on my cards. 

You can see this post where I shared three cards using this color combo but with the Timeless Tulips stamp set (which is one of my favorite sets). As you will see in that post, is that this color combo works really well when you want to use flowers.  

Video Tutorial 

As usual you can check the following video tutorial where you can see how this card was made step by step, as well as measurements.  You will see how easy this fun fold is to put together that you will want make this fun fold over and over again.

So let’s get started! 

Three Cute Thank You Card Ideas 

As you can see in the picture below, this time I used the Turtle friends bundle from the Annual Catalog with the You are Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP). 

These Thank You card ideas turned out really cute, and I loved how well the DSP coordinated with the cute Turtle Friends bundle from Stampin’ Up!

Color Combination 

As usual I got my color combination from the DSP, and while this particular DSP is all about peaches, you can see that it looks really well with the Turtle set! 

Below you can see the color combination I picked for this paper pack 

I know I say this all the time, but it truly is the easiest way to get color combos for your cards, just pick a few colors and then pull everything you have in those colors to start playing with them! 

Thank You Card Ideas Details 

Fancy Fold Thank you card #1

Fancy Fold - cute Thank you card ideas using the Turtle friends bundle from Stampin; Up!

For this first card, as you can see it is a fun easy fun fold that you can make in no time! 

You just need to fold the card base in half and then the card front again in half, then it is just matter of embellishing the front. 

Just make sure you pay attention to where you are add adhesive when gluing the elements on your cards, as these have to be glued on the left side of the card front to not close your card shut. 

And to make this card even cuter, I added another scalloped rectangle for the inside and add the white cardstock and a piece of designer series paper to match the front. 

I love adding a small piece of white cardstock, whether it is this decorated, or just plain white cardstock for the area to write my message. This helps me not get overwhelmed so I can quickly address it without feeling like I have to write a novel. I noticed that just doing this small change helped me in mailing cards more frequently.  

 Thank You Card #2

sketches to play   Cute Thank you card ideas using the Turtle friends bundle from Stampin; Up!

This sketch is a great one for you to use scraps of designer series paper as you just need to punch out the rectangles using the postage stamp punch and mix and match the patterns, so if you have a lot of little scraps this is a great sketch to use. 

Thank You Card #3

Thank You Cards 

As I was mentioning in the beginning I decided to use the You’re a Peach suite for my thank you cards as this suite goes really well for Summer. 

And since I need to be sending the thank you cards during this time, it made so much sense for me.. Do you do your thank you cards based on the time of the season you are going to send them? 

Anyway, if you have not seen this suite, check the graphic below! 

You're a Peach Suite

The colors in this suite are so beautiful, and the designer series paper and the bundle coordinates really well together. This is one of the things I love from Stampin’ Up! in all honesty.. All their products coordinate really nice making it easy to create cards in a breeze.

It never fails!

 

Once you have the colors you want to use, then just get everything you have in these colors, as far as cardstock, and embellishments. That way you are ready to start playing and create cards.

Friendship Handmade Card 

Learn how to make a easy Thank you card using the Quiet Meadow Bundle from Stampin' Up!

The Quiet Meadow Bundle made it really easy to make this card. I stamped the pool party background using the words image as well as the splatter image. I love that these images work well for backgrounds as it adds a bit of a chic, vintage look. Don’t you agree?

For the flowers, I stamped two in memento and then add color with the alcohol markers. I paired these flowers with one from the True Love designer series paper.  

And to build more the background I added some foliage cut outs in black and white using the dies. 

For the sentiment you can see I use the label from the dies as a mat and then tread the ribbon to go around the card. One TIP on the ribbon, make sure you do this add the ribbon/sentiment  before gluing the base to the card front!

I totally forgot about this, and I had to fix it while filming the video tutorial 🤣🤣🤣  So learn from my mistakes. ha!

Finally to embellish the background, I added the black mate dots, and the Pool Party sequins from the artistry blooms sequins. And two opal rounds for the middle section of the pool party flowers.

You can watch below the video tutorial to see how this card was made from start to finish.
