Side Step Fun Fold Card

I have a really neat Fun Fold to share in today's post. The Side Step Fun Fold Card is one I don't think I've ever demonstrated before, but am happy to share it with you now. Watch my video for all the cutting & scoring dimensions, stamping tips, for this super fun fold card featuring the Blackberry Beauty Suite in Stampin' Up!'s 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog. Then give it a try. You'll have fun and the recipient of your Side Step Fun Fold Card will be in awe of your beautiful work. 

Once you've viewed this following video, be sure to keep scrolling as this post is jam-packed with another video and lots of Stampin' Up! news.

The first 3 photos below show my sample Side Step Fun Fold Card featuring the Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle and Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper. I think it's beautiful. The sentiment is so meaningful too. Stampin' Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (1)

Below are 3 views of the Side Step Fun Fold Card I made during my Facebook Live. As you can see, it is a bit different than myself with the addition of another stamped bouquet, different placement of the bird, and embellished with Gilded Gems.
