Today’s fancy fold card is a ‘U Fold Window’ style card using the Sale•a•bration items, Hippest Hippo stamp set (#159921), Hippo dies (#159928) and Silver & Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159941). Each of these items can be earned free with any $90+ product order. Select all 3 items with a $270 product order during Sale•a•bration (now through to 31 August 2022)!
I adore the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and this particular piece reminded me of those beautiful curtains at the theatre! I also added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card at the top opening of the window (Basic Borders dies).
Thick Basic White Card Base: 19.5cm x 10.5cm; score at 2.5cm & 5cm from each end.
Thick Basic White Card Front: 14.5cm x 10.5cm Adhere the DSP before cutting the window (the largest square die from the Stylish Shapes dies). The card base scorelines need to be folded as mountain fold then valley fold from each end. This creates the U shape. The card front piece is then glued to the top. Start by gluing one side, then fold the card flat to glue the other side, making sure the edges meet.
The Silver & Gold Specialty DSP was cut for the interior with a small piece of the wood grain paper (retired In Good Taste DSP) at the bottom acting as the stage floor for my little ballerina.
Memento Black ink was used to stamp the hippo image and she’s coloured using the Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Gray Granite, Melon Mambo, 900/1000 Light Combo.
The hippo is raised with a small strip of window sheet folded into a square and mounted behind. This allows for her to appear in mid-air, and so the card can fold to the right so it folds flat to fit in a standard C6 envelope!
The sentiment is white heat embossed onto a label die cut with one of the Fabulous Frames dies.

This card is adorable! Any chance you could post directions? I appreciate the measurements but I have no idea how to assemble this card.
