Fun Fold Cards

This style card is called a Tricorn Style fold card. I first saw this by Mixedupcrafts.  I love the way it stands and it folds up to be mailed.  I used Stampin up designer series paper for this card that is shown in the picture.  Here is here tutorial for this card:


This style card, that is pictured on the right, is called a Star Shaped Easel card.  It comes apart for mail but again I love the way this stands too! The paper that I used is also from Stampin up designer series. Here is the tutorial for this card:


These 2 types of cards are fun to make and I love trying new types of style cards.  I find it amazing all the different types of cards that they are out there!  Try these you will love them too!

Birthday with Animals!

Jungle Birthday
Our next door neighbor  has a birthday today!! She is 8 years old today and loves crafting.  I made this diorama card for her with Elizabeth Craft Jeep, which I just got and I love it!!  The Panda, Elephant and Giraffe are from Marianne Designs.  I just got the kangaroo today or I would have added it to the card.

Card folded

Back of the card for the sentiment
The frog on the front and the back are stickers that I have had in my stash.  I think I got them at Michael's, so adorable.  It does lay flat for mailing which is pictured above but I am glad I didn't  have to mail it because it does take a huge envelope because I made it huge.   The size of the card is  5 1/2 x 6.  I have made them smaller which I would do if I was going to mail it.  Dioramas are so much fun to make and decorate.  Hope she likes it!  Happy Birthday Caroline!!
