Many have been asking me to demonstrate 5×7 cards and today I’ve come up with a pop out card that has an interesting zig zag fold. I’ve made one as a baby card which includes a built-in pocket for a gift card.

The two additional samples in today’s video include cards for thank you and birthday. The best part of this zig zag fold is that you can use it for any occasion. Consider incorporating the pop out format onto a scrapbook page for additional photos or journaling. Don’t miss the free project sheet below that includes all the cutting dimensions and amazing Stampin’ Up! supplies for today’s three cards.

This 5×7 card provides three panels. It’s idea since it provides lots of space for multiple signatures for a group gift, a place to create a pocket for a gift card and plenty of areas to decorate.

Realistic-type stamp imagery (pictured above) is included in this Distinktive stamp set. Rather than appearing like stamped images, these appear more like photographs. You’ll be tempted to touch them and feel the texture!

Zig Zag Fold | Nothing’s Better Than

I’ve got a huge sweet tooth and something I’m always trying to keep in ‘check’. Because of that, the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set + the coordinating Love You More Than Dies were a natural “must have” for me.

Candy jars are nostalgic and I loved the idea of adding these chocolates. I used the Jar Punch with the coordinating Jar of Flowers stamp set. I stamped the jar image on the white cardstock, punched out the vellum jar silhouette and anchored them together with the jar lid and the single chocolate at the bottom. Silver Foil provides the perfect touch for the jar lid which I wrapped with the Fan Baker’s Twine. This trio pack of twine provides a great variety of color!

The Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers provide the perfect array of nude and brown tones. These markers provide flawless coverage and can be used on everything from skin tones to landscapes – or chocolate!

If chocolate is not your thing then perhaps cookies might be! I created the faux cookie sheet using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and Silver Foil. That adorable spatula is from the Cookin’ Dies, also on the Last Chance Products list HERE
