Easy-Peasy Fun-Fold Card

Stampin’ Up! Product Coordination

This card looks difficult but It’s actually very easy! The use of Stampin! Up’s coordinating colors of inks, card stock and DSP make it come together quickly! Even the stamp sets and dies coordinate in this card.

I was inspired to try the Diamond Z-Fold card after searching for a new fun-fold card to try. As I was going through my Pinterest Board titled Fun-Fold Card Ideas, I cam across the Diamond Z-Fold card. I made a sample using retired DSP and retired card stock and decided I would have a go at making this into a “real” card.

I love the new 2022-2024 In Colors 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. They are bright and cheery and that was exactly what I wanted. After I had decided on using that particular DSP, that’s when I had to decide what my 3 main elements would be on each of the squares. At first, I thought of only using the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set but then I pulled out the Brewed for You set, Bam! I was good to go! Follow along for directions and product list.
