HOW TO MAKE THEATER FOLD CARDS
THEATER CARD SERIES #1 & 2
Kicking off a new fun fold card series with the Theater Stage Card, also called the Slide & Reveal Card or Sliding Shadowbox. On the video class I’ll share how to create this card with the Stampin’ Up! Saleabration Favored Flowers Designer paper.
I’ve also share card #2 in this series below. I turned the theater fold into a photo card for a personal touch. I made it for a friend’s birthday. I used a photo of their house instead of designer paper for the background. A floating wakeboarder in front for a really a cool effect.
These cards fold flat and fit into a Medium Stampin’ Up! Envelope. Whether they would need more postage would depend on how many dimensionals you use.

For card #1 I used the gorgeous new Stampin’ Up! Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper. You can earn this paper free during Saleabration with $50. Click for more info on Saleabration.
The word “thanks” is from the coordinating Fragrant Flower stamp set. Heat embossed in white and cut with a label from the Fragrant Flowers die. I attached the label with the Window Sheet. It gives the illusion of floating.

PHOTO THEATER CARD #2
Card #2 in my series features a twist on the Theater Stage card. I used a photo for the background instead of designer paper. I made this wakeboarding theater photo card for a friend I ski with. The background photo is their house. I used the retired Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper to coordinate with the water theme.
I printed the photo on Basic White card stock to use for the background. I printed a second copy of the photo to layer over the I Beam so the I Beam blends in with the background.
I used a stock image of the wakeboarder silhouette. I cut it out and attached it to a window sheet to the back of the I Beam to give the appearance of the wakeboarder flipping.

I added another custom touch to this card by adding a card base to the back for the greeting. I use basic black standard card base: 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored in half with a piece of white inside to write on.

Can’t wait to make this card!
Have fun! It’s such a cool card.
I’ll have to try this card on a day when I don’t have any distractions. Looks like a challenge, but I’m willing to give it a try.
Definitely give it a try! You can also do a little at a time if you only have a few minutes here and there.
