Flexi Fold Fruit Card

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

This was the card that Bev Poultney and I taught at the Hamilton extravaganza recently.
I love the interesting folds that make this card stand up, unsupported. The folds pull out and lie flat so it can be easily put into an evelope for posting. Write your greetings on the inside folds (arms) of the card or on the back.


A close up of the fruit. A lot of the ladies at our craft day struggled with the shading. I don't feel like this is something that can be taught in one afternoon rather it is something that developes over time as you practice. The main problem was that people were too heavy handed. It is important to add colour on lightly at first as you can always add more colour but you can't take away what you already have.


This shows the two arms that fold over to create the bends that support the card when standing. The wide arm on the left folds over first and the tab on the end of the arm (not shown in photo) inserts into a small slit made on the base-card front. The narrow arm on the right folds over next and the tab on the end inserts into a slit made on the wide arm.


The fruit are all punched from circles; 1 3/4" circles for the apples and orange and 3/4" circles for the grapes. The banana is hand cut. Stamps used were kinda eclectic stamp set for the leaves and sentiment, the sketched lines stamp from gorgeous grunge was used on the apples and of course the ever popular hardwood stamp for the background. The base card is Lost Lagoon (a new in-colour).

If you would like to make this style of card. See my tutorials and copy and paste the instructions from there.
