Alternate Paper Pumpkin Project: March '24; Book Jacket Fold

I like to go to other paper crafters for inspiration just like you are coming to me for inspiration. It's the circle of life in the crafting world, I think, and that's a good thing! I think crafters, in general, like to share. The inspiration for this card came from fellow Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator, Susan Campfield. She brought to my attention the Book Jacket Fold card several months ago, I used the fold in a class last summer, and now I'm bringing it to you with March 2024's alternate Paper Pumpkin project.

Don't run away, though, if you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber. There are plenty of other supplies you can use to make this amazing fun fold card! Here's how my Book Jacket Fold turned out. Closed, it just looks like a regular, every day card. It's when it's open that the magic happens!

From the kit, I used these supplies:

I used the card piece as a very important part of the fun fold. I cut it down to 6 3/4" x 5 1/2", then from the right side I scored it at 3 1/4", used the natural 4 1/4" score line, and scored it at 5 1/4" and 6 1/4", too.

I opened up the envelope to use the beautiful sky print. I cut a piece 3/4" x 5 1/2" and another piece 2 3/4" x 3/4" (for the inside).

I also added two piece of Thick Basic White cardstock to the card.

Thick Basic White cardstock:

-7 1/4" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" for the card base, folded to open to the right, not the normal left

-2" x 5 1/2" (embossed with the Ferns 3D Embossing Folder)

To see how everything came together in this fun fold, you can watch here:

Happy creating!
