Do you look for different folds to add some spice and variety to your card making? A search of Pinterest yields so many options. When I spotted the Barn Door Fun Fold, I knew it would pair perfectly with Stampin’ Up!’s Circle Sayings Bundle. Find this bundle on page 19 on Stampin’ Up!’s brand-new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. I’ve created many cards using this bundle which includes a versatile stamp set and a 2 3/8-inch circle punch. See more samples (another fun fold) by clicking here.
Circle Sayings Barn Door Fold
This fold is super easy. Be sure to watch the video included below to see step-by-step instructions for creating this card.
Card stock (Berry Burst) measuring 11 x 4 1/4, scored at 5 1/2
Trim a 1 1/2-inch x 5 1/2-inch pieces from the top front with your Stampin’ Trimmer
Adhere a piece of coordinating Designer Series Paper (Bright & Beautiful 6 x 6 DSP) 5 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches to the front panel that’s left.
Use the circle punch to cut a half circle from the “barn door” panel
Stamp your image on Basic White Card Stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4 inches. Be sure to align your image in the half circle so it shows through to the front of the card. Glue to the inside of the card. See the examples above and below.
Add embellishments as you wish.
Here’s the inside of the card:
In addition, I created a thank you card using the same fold and stamp set. The Designer Series Paper comes from the Countryside In 12 x 12 package.

Today, I combine the fun new Bright & Beautiful 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper with the VW fun fold. (Purchase this double-sided, patterned paper when Stampin’ Up!’s 2023-2024 Annual Catalog goes live May 2.)
The next photo shows a view from above. Can you see the V and the W? At first, the design seems complicated. But it comes together quite easily.
This next photo shows the inside of the card.
My team member, Sandy Graves, created a VW fun fold card for our recent team meeting. See her card below. Several people asked for directions to make this fold. So here it is!
Use these paper measurements to help you get started. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post to see step-by-step instructions for creating this.
Base card stock: 10″ x 4 1/4 inches scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 3 3/4, and 5
Base card stock: 6 x 3, scored at 3
Coordinating Designer Series Paper: 4 3/4 x 4, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4, and four pieces measuring 4 x 1

The front sentiment comes from Go to Greetings and is stamped in Berry Burst ink, punched with the Double Oval Punch. I grabbed the inside sentiment from the brand-new Beautiful Balloons stamp set (available in the new, upcoming Annual Catalog.)

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s April Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us. This month we feature all things Mother’s Day. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop. Leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest for a chance to win a Birthday Card Organizer Kit.
Today, I share a versatile and fun gift holder using the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper, a brand-new 12 x 12 patterned paper available in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. You can begin ordering from that catalog May 2. Other ingredients include the Tailor Made Tags Dies, sentiment from Waves of Inspiration stamp set, and the Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon. I was inspired by a larger packet created by Diane Evans. I scaled mine to create a smaller version, perfect for little gifts. This pattern offers a great way to use some of the paper you’ve been hoarding!
This packet boasts three pockets — two small in the front that hold a tag and/or gift card and a chocolate. The large pocket works for a bookmark or coffee sticks. For stampers, it holds a blending brush or bone folder.
Designer Series Paper measuring 9″ x 6″
For belly band: one piece of DSP measuring 6″ x 3/4″
Score on the 6″–side at 1 3/4″ on each side
From the bottom, score 2 1/2″ up
Be sure to watch the video below to view step-by-step instructions for putting this Mother’s Day gift packaging together.
