Gracious Floral Stamped Fun Fold Card
by Anne Thompson

So by now you may have heard that we have some new products from Memory Box.  Hooray for the 2023 June Gracious Floral Collection!!!  I made another fun fold card for today that features the GRACIOUS FLORAL Clear Stamp Set CL5280.

What I did was add a small Z-fold card on top of a flat base with lots of layers--purple card stock layered with papers from MAGNOLIA PLAID PP1021  and MAGNOLIA GROVE PP1022 and white card stock stamped with the largest image from GRACIOUS FLORAL CL5280 Clear Stamp Set.

So let's put this card together.

  • Start with a base layer of purple card stock cut 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.
  • Add plaid paper cut 4 X 5 1/4.
  • Set that aside.


  • Cut another piece of purple card stock 4 1/4 X 9 3/4.
  • Score it at 3 1/4 and 6 1/2.  Fold and use a bone folder to get crisp folds.
  • When you set it on the table it should look like a Z from the side.
  • Cut three pieces of patterned paper each 3 X 4 -- I used two pieces of the same floral and a plaid that matches the one I used on the base.
  • Open the Z panels strip flat and add the patterned papers to each of the Z panels.


  • Stamp the large floral image from Gracious Floral twice on white card stock.
  • Color the images with PrismaColor Pencils -- I used greens, pink, and brown.

  • For the front of the card, cut another piece of purple card stock 2 1/2 X 3.
  • Cut a piece of plaid paper 2 1/4  X 2 3/4 and add it to the purple piece.
  • Trim one of the floral images to 2 X 2 1/2 and add that to finish the panel.
  • Attach that panel to the front of the Z-fold card.

  • For the center of the Z fold, add a piece of white card stock cut 2 3/4 X 3 3/4 and stamp "just for you" from the Gracious Floral stamp set in black ink (I used VersaFine Clair Nocturne).

  • For the final panel in the Z fold, add the other floral image trimmed to 2 3/4 X 3 3/4.
  • Put adhesive on the back of this panel and secure it to the flat card that you started with.

The newest collection includes a stencil set, an embossing folder and coordinating dies, the stamp set, and the stamp set with coordinating dies.  I chose to color my flowers as magnolias but the possibilities for these flowers are endless. 

Happy Crafting!
