Fun Fold Friday With Bee My Valentine

Hello stampers,

I really enjoy making fun fold cards, I think they just add an extra touch. So I'm going to work on doing at least 2 fun fold cards a month, beginning today which I'll dub Fun Fold Friday. LOL! For today's card I happened to come across another demo that made it & happened to link she found it & who had a video for it at Mixed Up Craft. Now I tried to be smart about it & make it fit into one of our envelopes, boy did I fail. UGH! But that's ok because it's a learning experience but I did like how it turned out in the end.

So the original maker's card ended up being 6x6, and mine ended up being 5.5x5.5 (this is why I shouldn't try something new really late at night.) I used Sweet Sorbet Cardstock & Bee Mine DSP for the base & layers of the card. For the bees, I used the Bee My Valentine Bundle stamping on Basic White Cardstock with Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink & Memento Black Inks. For the sentiment, I used one from the set and then punched it out using the Heartfelt Hexagon Punch.

I think if I were to try this card again, at the very least I would cut down the 2 flaps that the top sits on just a bit. This card would definitely have to be put in a larger envelope due to when you fold it up the base is really thick. Even though I didn't get it down to the regular card side, I can say I did have fun making it & I really do think it is a cool looking card.
