Yesterday during my Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook, I shared how to make a Bay Window Fold Card (at least that’s what I’m calling it). This card was one of the make-n-take cards demonstrators in my group made a month back during our Team Gathering on Zoom.
I came across this fun fold idea while I was pinning on Pinterest. Maria Taylor at Cards Taylor Made shared her version of this card on her July 8, 2019 blog post. She also shared a PDF tutorial for her larger size card. (Thank you, Maria!) Her card was much bigger, though. So I altered this fun fold & reworked the measurements so the card would fit into our medium size (A2 size) envelopes.
I uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). And then I was able to share it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below the photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for these cards.

The commitment is to order at least $25 worth of Stampin’ Up! product in each of those 6 months.
