Bendi-Fold with a difference

Hi Crafty Friends

I've been wanting to do a bendi-fold card since I saw one on Pinterest months ago, and this week I finally did one. I tweaked it a bit as all the examples I've seen have two bends; this one has three. We made it in craft club although I was worried with all the die cutting it would take too long. But in the event, we managed fine and everybody went home with a completed card.
These are the dies we used:
Marianne, Tiny Pines, Holly, Spellbinders houses, Spellbinders circle and ovals, X Cut trees, Britannia (I think) Santa.

Sorry the picture doesn't really do it justice, I don't seem to be able to get the colour right, and the card is more glittery than it looks here. So here is my Triple Bendi-fold.

happy crafting


  1. This is just lovely, Jan, so very elegant


  2. I have been itching to try one of these also, not done any yet as I seem to have left my mojo back in Lincolnshire, if you find it please send it back lol xxx

  3. Believe me, if I find your mojo, I'm hanging on to it!!

  4. Great card! Love all white cards and I like how you gave it a touch of blue! I, too, keep saying I'm going to make these Bendi Cards. I actually made one so far, but it was at a class my Stampin Up Demo has, and it was very basic. I don't do basic. I can't stop with just the bare I love the ones that are really embellished with die cuts to build a grand scene! I do have a question or two, though. What size is the base card (not incl. the circle)? Photos can be so deceiving when there is nothing else in the pic as a reference. And, with the triple-bend, I see where the two on the right side go into slots but where is the one on the right going? In the photo, it doesn't look like it's attached.

    1. Hi Lisa, glad you like my card. The back panel is approx 6"square and the fold goes into the other side. I love making these and have made several more - getting more elaborate each time, I'm with you on not doing basic :) If you make one, I would love to see it, where will you post it??? Good luck
