Sweet as a Peach Book Binding Fun Fold

 This is my first Book Binding Fun Fold card,  and it’s going to make its way onto my “favorite fun fold” list!!  So easy to make and adds a nice feature.  I turned the book binding card into a super fun pop up card. See the video below for instructions on how to make the card.  All products used are listed below as well.

From this side view, you can see that it is almost like a simple easel card, except that the top 1 1/8″ of adhered to the back of the card.

I used a bright, fun piece of DSP from the “You’re a Peach” collection.  The tag is popped using Stampin’ Dimensionals and is die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  The sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set and is inked in Old Olive.  The sweet little flowers in the upper corner are die cut from the Peach Die set using Calypso Coral.  Of course, they were just screaming to have a Basic Jewel in the middle!

When the card is opened, the inside “pops” up.  I used the same DWP for the inside.

I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock into a 2 3/4 square, and mounted it on an Old Olive 2 7/8 square.  That’s where I fit my sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach set and is inked in Old Olive.

I also made two more using other pieces of DSP from the You’re a Peach collection.  While the first one is bright and cheery, this second one is a bit lower key.  It’s still bright, but the sweet flowers add a different feel to the card.

The third card is made in a piece of DSP that is a bit more subdued.  It’s almost monochromatic in the shades of the flowers.  I can see this card being used for a fall birthday.

Happy Stampin’!
