The Double Fan Fold card is so stunning! Not only does it make a big impression on the viewer, it also fits in a notecard-size envelope (4.25 x 5.5″) for mailing. Here’s how to make your own!

You will need the following cuts of cardstock:

Cardbase: 7.5 x 5.5″
Cardstock mats (all same colour):
2.25 x 5.25″ (2 pieces)
1 x 5″ (2 pieces)
1 x 2.25″ (4 pieces)

And the following cuts of DSP / white cardstock:

White cardstock: 2 x 5″
DSP:
2 x 5″
0.75 x 4.75″ (2 pieces)
0.75 x 2 (4 pieces)

Your DSP can be the same for all pieces, or a variety of different patterns – it’s up to you. For this card, I used one pattern for the three largest pieces, and a different pattern for the four smaller pieces.

Start by scoring your cardbase along the short side at 1.25 and 2.5″ on each side.

Next, score diagonally to create an “x” like below on each side of your cardbase.

Burnish all the folds with your bone folder, and then fold the diagonal folds into Valleys (folds pointing away from you) and the vertical folds into Mountains (folds pointing towards you).

Here is a view of the card from the back.

From the front again.

From the back, with both fan panels completely folded.

Now it’s time to add DSP. Add one large panel of cardstock + DSP to the front of the card.

Add one large panel of cardstock + white cardstock to the back of the card. Add a stamp to decorate, if desired.

You have four small pieces of DSP and four small pieces of cardstock….

Cut two of each diagonally from the top right, and two of each diagonally from top left.

Attach the DSP to the cardstock.

These pieces will go on your side panels as shown, between the vertical and diagonal folds.

You have two tall strips of cardstock and two tall strips of DSP.

Mark each one at the centre point, and then cut from the centre point to the opposite corner to create a triangle. (I found this easiest to do by marking the line with a ruler and then cutting with scissors.)

Attach your DSP triangles to the cardstock. Note that they don’t line up perfectly, but it will still look good when the card is completed!

These two triangles attach on the outer panels of your card.

Here’s how the card looks from the front when folded.

Now it’s time to decorate!

Here’s the finished card from the front …

… and from the back.

Hello and welcome to the monthly blog hop of the Seashore Stampers! Today our theme is Christmas (which is only 62 days away … but who’s counting?)

For my project, I chose to use ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper (on sale for 15% off until the end of October!) and the “Christmas Means More” stamp set. I loved this stamp set as soon as I saw it, as it features quotes from some of my favourite Christmas movies! As this stamp set is not part of a suite or bundle, it’s easy for it to be overlooked, but the beauty of it is that it can be paired with so many of our other products to create simple or elaborate cards.

‘Tis the Season DSP was perfect for this project as it is packed with gorgeous holiday designs in traditional colours. I tried to choose the papers that most reminded me of Dr. Seuss’ original book and animated movie, which is a favourite in our household!

Dr. Seuss (How The Grinch Stole Christmas) Part 1 of 2 - YouTube

After creating the card, I felt inspired and wanted to add something more to my project … so I decided to try my hand at creating that old Grinch himself! I used the Mini Curvy Keepsake dies, which quickly and easily create a gift box suitable for holding those yummy Christmas treats.

It’s definitely not perfect, but then again the Grinch’s “quick Santy Claus hat and a coat” weren’t perfect either 😉 It’s amazing what you can do with a Tulip Builder punch!

I hope you enjoyed my projects! Now don’t forget to click on the buttons below to continue on the blog hop, and enjoy all the other Christmas creations! Click on “Previous” to visit Erica’s blog and “Next” to see what MiRan has created!

Happy Stampin’!

This Easel Book Card looks intimidating, but I promise it’s easier than it looks … and you will love the results! I learned this fold from demonstrator Barb Tripps at one of our Vancouver Island Demos’ meetings, which are now held virtually!

To make this card, you will need four pieces of cardstock and five pieces of Designer Series Paper. I’m using the Whale of a Time DSP for my card. The photo above gives you a good visual of how this card will be laid out, which might help you choose your papers, and figure out which cardstock colours you want to use with which papers. The measurements are as follows:

A:
Cardstock – 5.5 x 8.5
DSP: 5.25 x 1-7/8 (2 pcs)

B:
Cardstock: 4-5/8 x 3-3/8”
DSP: 4-3/8 x 3-1/8”

C:
Cardstock: 5-1/8 x 3-7/8″
DSP: 4-7/8 x 3-5/8”

D:
Cardstock: 5-1/8 x 7/8″
DSP: 4-7/8 x 5/8″

Once you have cut all your pieces, score your “A” piece (cardbase) at 4.25″, and then fold back one side of your cardbase to that centre fold line, as shown. Crease well with your bone folder.

Attach your two “A” DSP pieces to the cardbase.

Attach your “D” DSP piece to your “D” cardstock.

Set “A” and “D” aside. The two pieces of cardstock and DSP you have left are going to create your book. Start by folding each of them in half, and creasing well with your bone folder.

Apply a piece of Tear and Tape adhesive to the wrong side of your DSP, along the centre score line.

Attach each piece of DSP to its corresponding cardstock, only along that centre score line.

Use a pencil to curl the ‘pages’ of the DSP.

Apply three glue dots on the wrong side of your DSP to attach to your cardstock. (Glue dots don’t show up well on camera, so I’ve added red circles to show you where the glue dots go!)

Leave some curl in your pages when you attach the DSP to your cardstock.

Repeat this process again for the other pair of DSP/cardstock.

You’ll follow a very similar process to attach one ‘book’ to the other! This time, use a piece of Tear and Tape on either side of the score line.

Add strips of Tear and Tape along the top of your finished book, and attach it to your easel cardbase.

Use Dimensionals to attach your “D” piece to the cardbase.

This piece holds your book upright when the card is open.

Now decorate as you choose to finish the card!

A view of the card when “closed”. It’s not exactly flat enough for mailing, but it would fit in a large envelope!

Don’t forget that the Whale of  a Time DSP, along with fourteen other Designer Series Papers, are all on sale this month for a 15% discount! It’s a great time to stock up and save on all your favourites. See the full list here!
