Pop Up Book Cards

I love fun fold cards, and when I saw this design in a FB group, I immediately checked out the instructions for it on Lisa Curcio's blog and created a Silhouette Design Studio cut file for it. If you'd like to find some inspiration for fun folds, check out her blog here: Blog - Lisa's Stamp Studio ( I'm already working on converting another one of her fun folds into a Silhouette Studio cut file and will undoubtedly find several more to try. 

I had some pretty fall papers I wanted to use, and this card design is great for that! I made one thank you card for a friend and 3 thinking of you cards for some hospice patients my cousin visits weekly who will hopefully enjoy a lovely seasonal card. 

The sentiments are from Stampin' Up! sets: "thank you" is from Fond of Autumn and "thinking of you" is from Ringed with Nature. The die I used to cut out the sentiments is from the Potted Geranium bundle. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiments. It's great to be able to restamp in the same place, especially when using textured paper like I used here that sometimes doesn't get a clear impression the first time. 

Inside the cards, I embossed a panel using Paper Studio's leaves EF for the thinking of you cards and then used a die from SU!'s Fond of Autumn in the thank you card. All 4 cards have chipboard sentiments on the panel I left blank for a message.
