I’ve been enjoying stepping away from my traditional cards and making some fun fold cards. From what I can tell, this fun fold card is called a Triple Flip Card. I’m hoping you’ll be doing triple flips over it and making it too!
Triple Flip Card – Fun Fold Card
There is an entire world of Fun Fold Cards out there to choose from. But for me, I have to take it in baby steps. Start small, practice then go big and reach for the stars with the super-duper fancy ones! Some of them are just too intimidating for me. Not to mention, not only do I have to make it, I then have to explain it and teach you. I hope that the way I explain this makes sense and it’s easy for you to recreate because this is a super cute card!
I’ve seen so many Triple Flip Cards on the internet so I got the idea from everywhere. But for this particular style, stamps and whatnot I came up. Let me know what you think 🙂

Triple Flip Card Instructions
Cutting your cardstock:
- Cut a side folding A2 (5-1/2 X 4 – 1/4) size card from any white cardstock.
- As shown in the video above, score the front of your card at the 1/2 way mark (2-1/8″) from the top to the bottom.
- Now fold it towards the left and score.
Stamping & Coloring:
- I chose to use the heads of the chicks from the Hey Chick Cling Stamp set, and the plump chicken from the Hey Birthday Chick Cling Stamp set. I cut the heads out with the smallest circle die in the Layering Circles Dies.
- Coloring each of the feathers in a rainbow pattern with a variety of Stampin’ Blends (listed below)and the balloon in blue is what I liked the best.
- You may have noticed the big black marker I was using in the video. It’s a Prismacolor Blender. It’s no different than a Stampin’ Up! “Color Lifter” or a Copic Blender. It was just what was closest to me when I reached for a colorless blender.
- When you have your card in the folded and closed position, the front 1/2 of the card is what you will want to stamp with the (Retired) All Wired Up Stamp with Sahara Sand Ink. Then stamp the inside of the card where you would normally stamp and write a sentiment. Only press down on the stamp lightly in a few places so you don’t get a full impression (as shown in the video)
- Stamping the sentiment from the Hey Birthday Chick Cling Stamp Set on scratch cardstock I then chose to die-cut it out with a die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.
- To create the “Happy Happy Birthday” stamp each word (with the retired Monogram Messages Stamps)then die-cut them out with the smallest of the circles dies. The same one you used to cut out the chicken heads.
Die Cutting your circles:
- In the video when I started to die cut the circles I said the measurements would be here on the blog. But as I was editing I typed a lot of information and placed it where it was needed. So if you get confused refer back to the die-cutting in the video.
- The 2nd smallest circle die (Layering Circles Dies) is what I used to cut out the Rainbow Glimmer DSP and the 1/2 circles to create the triple flip.
- Now in order to line my dies up properly, I decided to draw a line 3/4″ of an inch to the right my first fold (The one we marked and scored at the 2-1/8″ mark) The line goes on the opposite side of your stamping from up above.
- As you place your circle die you can line it up with this 3/4″ line to be sure all your circles are straight as they go down your card. As for placing them top to bottom, I just eyeballed the center one, then did the top and then the bottom. Again, just eyeballing to make sure they all looked the same distance apart.
- IMPORTANT: When you place the card on the plate to cut the circles, you only want to cut HALF a circle. So be sure to line the card up so it is only 1/2 on the plate where the die is. And most importantly, place your card in a way that the fold lines up BEFORE the plate dips down. If you look at the photo (or video) you will understand what I mean. The plate is not completely flat, it dips at each end. Nothing will cut on the plate after the ‘dip’.
Assembly & Final Touches:
- Glue the Rainbow glimmer circles (6 of them) to the fronts and backs of where you cut the half circles for the flip. Then adhere all your chicken heads (on the front) and Happy Happy Birthday on the backs of the circles.
- Place the other chicken with dimensionals inside the card, but be sure he doesn’t show when the card is closed along with the other sentiment.
- Add a few Artistry Blooms Sequins where you think they look right and you’re done!
