  • Bone folder
  • Trimmer
  • Accent papers (SU Playful Pets Designer Series Paper used here)
  • Embellishments (Pets Dies and Playful Pets Trinkets used here)
  • Adhesives (Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals used here)
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (SU products used here: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, Pampered Pets stamp set, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, scissors)


  1. Step 1

    Cut base cardstock to at 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”, and score at 2 3/4”.

    Cut center piece to 2” x 4 1/2”, and score at 1/2”, 2 1/4”, and 4”.

    Cut layering panels at 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”, 1 7/8” x 3 1/2”, and 1 1/8” x 5 3/8”.

  2. Step 2

    Adhere the 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” layering panel over the 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” base. Using a bone folder, press the cardstock in half and burnish the score line again.

    Add adhesive to the tabs on either side of the bottom strip as shown.

  7. Center the strip at the bottom of the card base, wrapping the tabs to the back.

  8. Step 7

    adhere the two 2 1/2” x 4” pieces of white cardstock to the back of the project so you can write your message.

  9. Step 8

    Stamp a sentiment and adhere it to the bottom panel.

I agree, I love the Navity scene. I wondered how I could best use the stamp and dies and now, I know what to do!

Love this card. Will be doing this for a friend who is a card maker and I know that she has not seen this. Thanks you again

This Bendi card is much easier than the one I have made, which requires tabs to be inserted in slots. The base of the card is not bent. Preference of looks I suppose.

What a fun technique! I can't wait to get back in my art studio & make a few of these!

Love your cards and tutorial. So clear to understand. I am glad you left your mistakes in the video, because those are things I would probably do and it points them out so we will remember what not to do. Thank you for that! We are all human and make little mistakes. They did not take away from your projects, but helped us for when we try this card!
