It's no secret that I am a fun-fold card fanatic. And it's possible that I've told you this before, too, but every time a Paper Pumpkin kit comes in the mail, the first thing I make with its contents is a fun-fold card. November's kit came a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely adore all of the pieces in the kit.
And these pieces make such adorable treat bags/boxes!
But sometimes a girl just has to make a fun-fold card. So I did.
I started by taking the presents image from the kit that is shown below and cutting apart all of the presents.
I decided right away that I was just going to use the Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, and Pool Party presents that I had fussy cut. If I eliminated the green ones, I thought, the card I was going to make would look less Christmasy. This could open up the possibilities of this kit, and I decided that I'd use mine as a birthday card. "Oh, what fun" could have a birthday feel, without a doubt!
I've made Center Step cards like this one before, but honestly, I'm not sure I've ever made one that sits landscape in orientation. With a little research, I created a cutting map as seen below. Please note that the red lines are score lines and the black are cutting lines:
Besides the presents I cut, I did need some paper not in the kit. Sizes are listed here:
Basic White cardstock (card base, cutting map above).
Read Red cardstock:
-3/4" x 5 1/4" (bottom panel)
Pool Party cardstock:
--2 3/4" x 3 1/8" (the center step)
-1" x 3" (right panel)
Pattern Party Designer Series Paper:
-1/2" x 5" (bottom panel)
Believe it or not, the rest of the supplies needed for this card are all taken from the kit! Below you can see a complete list of those items.
