I love fancy fold cards and this one is so easy but really is stunning. I found the original tutorial on splitcoaststampers where you can also view a variation on this technique.
Step One: Cut designer paper 8 1/2 x 11. Be sure you paper has pretty designs on both sides as they will show.
Step Two: Score and fold your paper on the long way at 4 1/4
Step Three: Rotate your paper and score and fold at the 5 1/2 mark
Step Four: Unfold paper and cut from the left middle score line into the center,stopping at the intersection/ horizontal score line.
Step Five: Fold the bottom right corner up into a triangle meeting the center score line.
Step Six: Have your piece lined up on your Scor-Pal and fold the top left corner down at the 3 1/4 mark. This will be one inch in from the center score line.
Step Seven: Fold your top right quarter over
Step Eight: Fold your bottom left quarter over too.
Step Nine: Fold your bottom corner over the top of your already folded corner on the bottom.
Step Ten: Open back up your top flap and apply Scor-Tape to the edge and also apply Scor-Tape to the edges of the bottom flap and adhere down to make your pockets.
Finish your card and add tags to the pockets

First I created a 3-D House shaped card following the directions by our Scor-Pal design team member, Virginia Nebel. I love shaped cards and this one is very easy to create with the Scor-Pal. A punched circle was added to the front to turn it into a birdhouse. The bird on the swing, along with the sentiment, was one of my favorites from the stamp set.
Next I made a Z-fold card. My card front was scored at 2" and folded back. The edge was torn and an additional torn layer was added underneath. This fold was attached to the card front.
Don't you just love the birdhouse camper? Cute!
One great thing about clear stamps is the way you can bend them when mounting onto a clear block. Here I curved the sentiment to compliment the shape of the images.
