Quick and Easy Book Binding Fun Fold Card Featuring Garden Birdhouses Stamp Set

Hello my crafty friends! This card is a fun fold called “book binding” or “book fold” and perfect for showcasing the Garden Birdhouses stamp set (AC p. 96).

The card base is the new 2022-24 in color Tahitian Tide Cardstock (full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11, cut lengthwise at 4 1/4,” and then scored at 4 1/4" and 5 1/2." The center score line (5 1/2") remains the edge for this side fold A2 card and the side with the additional score line is the “front” of the card. To create the book binding effect, on the inside of the front of the card, apply adhesive to this 1 1/4" strip to secure the left-hand side of the card. Using a bone folder, burnish the 4 1/4" score line.

Next, decorate the two separate sections on the front of the card. The DSP strip on the left side measures 1” x 4.” The layer on the right side measures 3 3/4" x 3 3/4.” (Normally, this layer is 4 x 4, however, to keep it symmetrical with the rectangles created by the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, this layer is 1/4" smaller. If you need a layer for the inside sentiment, I would use a 4 x 4 layer.)

I love the Hello sentiment in this stamp set and it is placed at a bit of an angle. When I do this card again, I plan to use one of the other bird images so that it is facing the birdhouse instead of leading off the right of the card. 

The Garden Birdhouses stamp set had been on my “want list” since it was first introduced in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog. I am so happy that I finally have added it to my collection.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.
