aWow Blog Hop – Never Ever Grow Up Fancy Fold

Welcome to our Around the World Blog Hop where on the 2nd Wednesday of each month we share Stampin’ Up! inspiration from various parts of the world. Today our theme is Never Ever Grow Up which immediately makes us think of children.

However, as I write this, I think of my partner Adrian because I think he missed the memo about growing up. Always up for a lark, I could have easily done a project for him. Ha! Ha! I digress.

Instead, I focused on my daughter Cassidy. We have a tradition, ever since I started with Stampin’ Up! which was about 8 years ago, I’ve created a fancy fold card for birthdays and Christmases. Each fancy fold is different and they will always be one that I havent’t tried before because then it felt that extra special.

So today I’ve created the Triple Cube Pop-Up Card for the first time using a tutorial by Lisa Curcio. I like fancy folds that are wow without being intensely difficult. This is one of those folds. It comes together so quickly.

I used the free Sale-A-Bration Hippest Hippos stamps and dies. Each of these products are free with a $90 order whiles supplies last, until 31st August. So if you spend $180 you will be able to get both products. These gals are so cute and were really fun to colour.

That unsual pink on the umbrella was achieved by me trying Mint Macaron and not liking it. So I went over it with the Dark Polished Pink Stampin’ Blend and presto, a new colour!

I’ve chosen the ‘Awww, you’re the best’ sentiment which is apt as Cassidy and I generally try to see who can say it last before we go to bed. It’s our ‘thing’.

How much fun would a child get when they open this card and it pops open and these 3 hippos stand their looking so cute? I think any kid would just love it. This neatly fits in a regular C6 envelope for posting.


Cardstock: 20cm x 21cm

Score on the long side at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm

Turn to the right and cut right down at 5cm and 10cm which forms the 2 side boxes

Catch my FB Live tonight to watch me make this fun fold. My newsletter my subscribers will receive a full tutorial with cutting dimensions in both metric and imperial for this card.
