I love fun folds especially ones that are quick to put together and are simple to make. Gatefolds are versatile and easy, plus they can be simple or stepped up, and are a great way to introduce fun folds to beginner stampers and crafters. For today’s card, I am using items from the Snail Mail Suite in Stampin’ Up’s January to June Mini Catalog. This suite is perfect for beginners looking to try out coordinating products. Suites are great for coordination.

Before You Go
Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!
A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Additionally, Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple of sticks of the chewy staple; and chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.
