4-Corner Fold Up Card by Ellen S.

Receiving a handmade card can be just as much fun as creating them.  This charming 4-Corner Fold Up Card was created and sent to me by my stamping friend, Ellen Smallwood.  I love the myriad of ways she found to use the Bordering on Romance stamp set (Occasions Mini Catalog) on the card and envelope.

She got the original idea from fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator (and sweetie pie) Dawn Griffith.  Here's a link to Dawn's original video for the card.  The details on the envelope were produced by combining one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die and a coordinating stamp from Bordering on Romance stamp set.  Both products are in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog.

Ellen created INSTRUCTIONS HERE for you to see and print how she engineered this 4-Corner Fold Up Card.

  1. So cute! This would be fun to fill with confetti ;o)

  2. thanks for hanging in there, gang, for Ellen’s instructions. i set it up originally as a word doc (which may have been part of the problem if that’s not “friendly” with your computer). based on your feedback that it wasn’t opening for everyone, it was updated to a pdf file and should work like a champ!
