Stampin' Up! Butterfly Bouquet

I am participating in a Fun Fold swap and wanted to use the new Butterfly Bouquet Bundle and Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper that will be available on March 2.  If this layout looks familiar, my Monday post featured the same fun fold using the Hydrangea Hill Suite.  The fun thing about this layout is that you have a portrait style card or a landscape style.  Sweet! I posted the directions on Monday and have included them again for your stamping pleasure!

Fun fold Directions:
There are two card bases - one at 4 1/4" x 11" (scored at 2 3/4") and a second one at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (scored at 2 1/8").  This is basically a gate card fold for both pieces.

I find it easier to fold the scored side down, then fold the unscord side into the center so they meet.  Use your bone folder to get  good creases. They are attached at the inside center. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   

It helps to stamp your inside center piece before starting to fold it.  You will want to fold the card before placing the designer series paper pieces on it.  When folding the card, fold the left side in first, then the top, followed by the right side and ending with the bottom side, tucking it in to create the box top effect.  Again, crease as you go.  Note: the cardstock will not meet in the middle - you will have a little square that will be covered up by your center piece. Adhere your designer series paper pieces to each quadrant.  

 Put a dimensional on the top left of your center piece and adhere it to the top left piece.  Be careful not to put any adhesive to the other three pieces or you will not be able to open the card.
