Sharing is caring!

US Demonstrator Susan Campfield came up with this fabulous fancy fold design, and I taught it at a recent Zoom stamping session. It looks like a lot of pieces, but it comes together pretty quickly – and makes a big impact on the recipient!

Here are the supplies you’ll need for your Flying Seagull card.
Cardstock 1:
8 ¼ x 4 ¼ (2 pieces)
4 x 4”

Cardstock 2:
4 ¼ x 4 ¼”
4 x 2” (4 pieces)
4 x 1 ½” (2 pieces)

3 ¾ x 3 ¾”
3 ¾ x 1 ¾” (2 pieces)
3 ¾ x 1 ¼” (2 pieces)

Start by taking your large pieces of Cardstock 1 and scoring them at 2 ¼, 4, and 6 ¼”. Now each of these pieces has four panels, with one panel smaller than the other three. Set these pieces aside.

Find your three square pieces (one each of Cardstock 1, Cardstock 2, and DSP). Attach them all together and set aside.

Each of your DSP pieces will have a co-ordinating Cardstock 2 mat. Find the matching pieces and attach. You’ll have two additional Cardstock 2 mats as well.

Now go back to your scored cardstock pieces. Burnish all folds with a bone folder, and fold them accordion-style. These pieces are going to be the ‘wings’ of your seagull. Note where the smaller panel is on each piece, and arrange the pieces symmetrically so that the smaller panel is closer to the outside on each wing.

Now attach all your cardstock and DSP panels to your wings, as shown below.

Now it’s time to attach the square to complete your card. You’ll do this by applying adhesive to the blank panels as shown below.

Now your card looks like this from above:

Finish decorating the front of your card with whatever sentiments, shapes, and embellishments you choose.

I used the Sending Smiles bundle, the Stylish Shapes circle die, and Iridescent Pearls.
