Not sure what you call this kind of card but my version is a quatro-fold or zig zag card.
You get 4 faces to decorate and embellish.
On this one I have used the Sweet Always double sided DS paper. That goes perfectly with the Always stampset.
Mondays are busy at our place. I will show you more tomorrow perhaps.
We are off to afternoon swimming lessons.

By the way, I have seen the current mini catalogue on-line and it is filled with gorgous new stampsets, accessories, a new punch, ribbon, rub ons and papers - the wishlist has just blown out again ... demonstrators can order from 1 July, and customers from 1 August, so look out for a mini catalogue launch party in early August!!!
I did make a card on Friday afternoon, and I have photographed it, you will just have to wait for the post sometime this week.

(I was going to put in another layer of perhaps rose red, but decided: this time I like the simplicity of white on green).
Then using my stampin' up markers inked the rubber on the daisy stamp with the Rose Red, close to Cocoa and Old Olive markers. And, Stamped that over the top.
The tag is attached with embroidery thread. The tag Cardstock is Riding hood red and the sentiment: Thanks so much is from Trendy trees stamps set. Enjoy!
This is how it looks on the outside ...
Pretty isn't it? When you open it up - out pops a scene of stamped images. You can have words and birds, flowers and hearts or anything attached to the walls of your scene. This one reminds me of a little girls pink wall papered bedroom.I have used the Always Designer series paper to line the card and the matching Always stampset and Enjoy stampset too.
I enjoyed adding accessories such as brads, dazzling diamonds glitter and crystal effects to the items in the scene. I've used the colours: tangerine tango, rose red and perfect plum with lots of rocking and rolling of the stamps in the different ink colours. The Always flower is topped with a punched out circle which has been covered in crystal effects and sprinkled heavily with dazzling diamonds for the added bling. I am thinking of making one of these for a special christmas card with Christmas trees and snow ...

And the fact that I haven't been using these two stampsets nearly enough, in my opinion. So the technique I have used is:
The "enjoy" was stamped on gloss paper in versamark ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.
The brayer was inked up in lavender lace ink and then elegant eggplant ink. Afterwards I polished off the excess ink to reveal the embossed enjoy word.
The always bird was embossed onto a scrap piece of gloss cardstock ( which already had some brayered ink on it ), and brayered again with the elegant eggplant ink. I cut the bird out so that he could perch on the edge of the word.
The background is stamped with the "inspird by nature" stampset. The grass was stamped in versamark and clear embossed, then stamped over with white craft ink.
I added some white cardstock which was edged with the eyelet border punch, as well as the edge of the card. The ribbon is elegant eggplant grosgrain.

The simple mounting of these photos is due to the number of photos I have placed on the page. Two of the photos have used corner pockets to hold the photo in place. I have made them with the square scallop punch, cut the squares in half length ways and scored and folded them diagonally to show the punched edge at the front.
