One of my favorite stamps from Stampin' Up!'s 2016 Occasions Catalog is Bear Hugs. I used it to make this masculine birthday or Father's Day card. The inside is a fancy fold called a book card.
I used clear Wink of Stella and Crystal Effects on the fish.
Directions for Book Fold Card:
1. Outside Card: 8 ½” x 5 ½” Scored at 4 ¼”
2. Inside Card: 8” x 5” Using your cutting and scoring tool line cardstock on long side at the ¾” mark and start cutting from 1” to 7”. Turn 180 degrees and line cardstock on long side at the ¾” mark and start cutting from 1” to 7”. Now with long side at top, score the outside at 2 ¼”, 4”, and 5 ¾” ( you will be scoring from the cut lines to the outside. Now score the inside part at 1”, 1 ¾”, 4”, 6 ¼” and 7” (you will be scoring between the cut lines).
3. Fold the card insert as follows: outside parts — valley fold, mountain fold, valley fold. Inside part – valley fold, mountain fold, valley fold, mountain fold, valley fold.
4. Decorate the inside of card. The glue together with outside card by folding the inside piece closed, apply adhesive on one side and glue about ½” from outside edge. The do the same on the other side.
5. Decorate card front.
