Beary Cute Fun Fold Card

I shared this card in the International Crafters Video Hop yesterday and thought I'd share it today on my blog.  I had such fun making this adorable card featuring the Beary Cute Bundle from the Annual Catalogue.  In the video I changed it up a bit and used the A Walk in the Forest Designer Series Paper to cut/punch the images out.  Love being able to mix and match products!

Isn't this fun?  It's a bit like a Z fold card except it is just one piece of cardstock.

Isn't it fun!


  1. Cut Night of Navy cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 2 1/8", 4 1/4" and 6 3/8" along 8 1/2" side
  2. Turn 90 degrees and cut between the 2 1/8" and 6 3/8" scorelines 2 1/8" from bottom
  3. Fold the card base by pushing up on the bottom 4 1/4" score line and back on the top 4 1/4" scoreline.  This will create the card base.  Burnish on the 2 1/8" scoreline and 4 1/4" scoreline and bottom 6 3/8" scoreline using a Bone Folder.
  4. Cut Designer Series Paper 2" x 5 3/8" and adhere to the front flap.
  5. Cut 2 pieces of Old Olive cardstock 2" x 2" and emboss using the Snowfall Sky Embossing Folder
  6. Cut Window Sheet 1" x 3" and adhere to the bottom front flap with 2" showing
  7. Adhere Old Olive embossed cardstock pieces to the small flaps
  8. Cut Old Olive cardstock 2" x 5 3/8" and adhere to the back flap
  9. Cut 2 pieces of Basic White cardstock 2" x 3 1/4"
  10. Stamp snowflakes on one piece using Night of Navy ink
  11. Adhere piece without sentiment to the left side and the one with the sentiment to the right side of the card base
  12. Stamp bear on Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  13. Colour using Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.
  14. Stamp scarf on bear using Old Olive ink
  15. Cut out bear using punch.
  16. Adhere bear to the Window Sheet
  17. Stamp tree on Basic White cardstock using Old Olive ink and cut out using die.
