You have probably seen the Fitting Florets Suite around now. It is all so gorgeous. I had to play with it. And I pulled out an old fold that I haven’t done in a while – A Panel Fold Card.
Here it is for you.
And it folds flat for you to post.
You can catch how to create one on the video below. (If you are receiving this blog update by email and the video is not showing, head to the blog post and view it there).
The Fitting Florets Suite will be available to order in November. The Framed Florets Bundle (Stamps and Dies) will be carried over in to the January-June Mini Catalogue but the gorgeous Fitting Florets paper and the Gold Swirl Gems won’t be so you will want to grab that early. I will tell you more about this soon.
But … You could get this earlier. As Demonstrators we can order it now. And if you have considered joining Stampin’ Up! what better way than joining now (also with the extra bonus you get this month) AND you can order it now. Because we can’t wait for these things right. 🙂
Here are the measurements.

When I was playing with the Hippest Hippos stamps and dies a few weeks ago I thought the centre of the goggles looked liked the “old school” phones.
You know the ones many of us grew up with that had the cord hanging off and you couldn’t take your phone anywhere. Even having to talk to friends right in among the family …
Those were the days. Anyway I had to create these hippos with their phones.
I created a Half Fold Easel card for it. I had a lot of leftover bits too to put the card together. The sentiment is cut with one of the Beautiful Shapes Dies.
And just a note they are not outside right. How can you talk outside unless you have a long cord … (For some reason I put the plants on there but hey, they can be indoor plants). 🙂
This is it front on.
Side on so you can see the Easel part.
It folds flat easily to post out.
What do you think??
A Half Fold Easel Card is quite easy. Cut the right hand section off of the front of the card base. On the left hand section score it at half way. You can decorate as you like. Just have a piece on the left hand side at the bottom to help the easel part stand up.
Less than a week to get the Hippos and the dies for Sale-A-Bration. Have you got them yet? Don’t miss out on them.

Today’s video is a fun card I think. It’s a Pocket Front card.
It’s a standard size card and with a little folding and scoring creates a pocket in the front. Just the size for a tea bag, Gift Card or even a small chocolate.
I have a video to show you how to make it but also have the measurements below for you so you can recreate your own.
Here is the card for you. We have some different angles so you get an idea of it.
I used the Tea Boutique Collection for this card. Quite an appropriate one to include a Tea Bag in the pocket.
Below is the view from the front with the card standing up. It can stand well just on the point.
Inside. I added a piece of white card so there is room to write.
Check the video out below.
The original idea came from Splitcoaststampers website -> HERE.
CREATE YOUR OWN POCKET FRONT CARD
Follow along with the video to see the scoring and folding of the card.
Base card 14.8cm x 21cm Score on the long side at 10.5cm
5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Score on the long side at 4 1/4″
On the long side place the left hand edge at the 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ point on the Paper Trimmer. Mark in pencil at the little channel on the Trimmer. Alternatively use a ruler to measure in 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ from the left hand edge and mark the point.
Turn card clockwise 1/4 turn. Mark halfway on this side which will be 7.4cm or 2 3/4″.
Score an angled line from the centre mark on the short side to the mark on the long side. Repeat the angled line from the centre to the mark on the other long side.
Fold on the score lines and fold in at the angles. Adhere to 2 angled folds down with tape.
Cut Designer Series Paper to 10cm x 10cm 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.
Cut the piece at an angle from one corner to the other. Keep one triangle as a large piece. Cut the other triangle in 2 to have 2 half triangles.
Adhere the large piece to the front of the card.
White card for inside measures 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.
Adhere the 2 smaller triangles on each of the bottom corners. Adhere the white card inside the base card.
Decorate as you wish to.
I hope you get to make one. Let me know how you go.
