#SU! Hippest Hippos Bay Window Card

 I just love fun fold cards! More than making them, I love to see the recipients reaction when they open them. What about you?

Well, I hadn't yet tried the Bay Window fun fold. Not sure exactly why. Maybe I thought it was too complicated, but in any case this was my first try at it. 

Oh my! How simple it truly is!

Here is the tutorial video showing step-by-step how easy this is:

Here are the measurements:

Night of Navy: 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2", 5-7/8", 7-3/8", 9-1/8" & 10-5/8" along the 11" side; scrap piece that measures at least 1/2" x 3"
Rings of Love Designer Series Paper: 4" x 6-1/2", then trim along the 6-1/2" so that you have 6 pieces that are all 4" long. 2 pieces that are 1/4" x 4", 2 pieces that are 1-1/4" x 4", one piece that is 1-1/2" x 4", and one piece that is 2" x 4".
Basic White: 4" x 2-7/8"; 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" (for largest circle of the Stylish Shapes dies); 2" x 3-1/4" (for hippo or cow & life preserver); 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" (for 3rd smallest circle)
Balmy Blue: scrap piece at least 1" x 1"
Silver Foil Specialty Pack: scrap piece that measures at least 2" x 1"

As promised, here are some additional projects I created using this same layout.

For this last card, I carefully cut my Designer Series Paper so that the pattern continued across the front of the bay window design. Here is how I did that:

Be sure to line up the 6-1/2" x 4" piece so the 6-1/2" end is at the top of the trimmer. Then cut off 1/4", move down and cut off 1-1/4", move again and cut off 1-1/2", move again and cut 1-1/4", move again cutting 1/4". You should end with a piece that measures 2" x 4"
