Today’s card is a fun fold, shared by Peggy Noe, who showed how to make a variation of Susan Camfield’s “Flying Seagull” design. 

Once I understood how to cut, score, and glue the card base together, I decorated it with Beary Christmas Designer Paper to make it my own.

Beary Christmas Fun Fold


The great thing about this design is that it only takes one piece of 8 1/2″ X 11″ cardstock to make the card base. And, when finished, it fits in our medium envelopes.



In landscape position, cut 8 1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock at 5 1/2″.
Cut this 5 1/2″ X 11″ piece in half, giving you two 5 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ squares.
Score both squares at 2″, 3 1/2″, and 5″. Then, fold and burnish (Valley, Mountain, Valley).
Cut the 3″ X 11″ piece to 3″ X 5 1/2″, and a second piece 3″ X 3″. You’ll have a 3″ X 2 1/2″ piece left over.
Find the middle of the 3″ X 5 1/2″ piece (lengthwise) with a ruler, and using a pencil, mark three dots. Draw a straight line.
Add glue to the small, 1/2″ fold, and attach it along the pencil line. Do the same with the other half, making sure they meet tightly in the middle.
You can add the 3″ square, on an angle. during your decorating process. 
I cut my designer paper 1/8″ smaller than the card base dimensions, giving the panels a 1/16″ border.
