Paper Blooms Bendi Card - Share it on a Sunday Floral Fun Fold Card

 Hi Everyone,

Its Share it on a Sunday and the theme this week is 'Floral Fun Fold', what's not to like? Love a fun fold and love flowers. I've used the FREE Paper Blooms Saleabration dsp as it's almost time for it to retire so I thought I would give it a last outing. I have used this a lot, it is so pretty. There is a video tutorial for this too, click on the link below.

Video Tutorial


1 piece of old olive card stock 6" x 6", 1 piece 1 7/8" x 7", 1 piece 2 1/4" x 4 1/2"
1 piece of dsp 5 7/8" square, 1 piece 1 3/4" x 6", 1 piece 2 1/8" x 4"
Flowers cut from some of the other dsp
1 piece of basic white card stock 2 7/8" x 5 7/8" for the back (I forgot to add this in the video)
Dressed to Impress stamp set
Old Olive ink
Simply scored
Bone folder
Detailed Trio punch
Classic Label punch
Multipurpose adhesive


Score the 6" square of old olive at 3" but DON'T fold and burnish, just bend it slightly (see video). Score the 1 7/8" piece on the long side at 1/2" at each end. Score the remaining piece at 1/4" at each end and then in the centre at 2 1/4", fold and burnish these score lines.

Round the top two corners of the large old olive piece and the largest dsp piece and adhere the two together, leaving a small border around the edge.

Adhere the other dsp pieces to the strips of card - these will fit in between the scores at the very end of each piece with no border at the ends but a tiny border top and bottom.

Add glue to the tabs on the 1 7/8" x 7" piece, this piece fits to the front of the card and flush with the bottom, the tabs will sit on top of the dsp on the back piece but can't really be seen.

Add glue to the tabs on the remaining piece and this fits in between the front strip and the back piece. The centre fold needs to be over the centre fold on the back of the card and the bottom of it should be about 1/2" or so up from the bottom of the card so that it sticks up above the front layer.

Bend the card inwards a little bit, don't fold it and it should stand up nicely but will fold flat to go in the envelope.

Now arrange the flowers that you have cut out, I've used some of the edge pieces and added them to the edges of the card as well as using some full flower images.  Adhere them in place, I've used dimensionals on some of them.

Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of basic white and punch out with the classic label punch and add to the front with dimensionals.

I hope that you like my fun fold and will give it a try. Don't forget to see what Donna and Victoria have made, click on the links below.
