It’s good to be back home in my own Craft Studio the lighting is TONS better and I have more things to use 🙂 Today I have another easy fun fold card for you. I like a card with an unusual fold because I think it packs a little more fun into the envelope, they don’t necessarily need to be difficult, just give a little surprise.
This Easter card just looks like a normal card wrapped up with a little twine, but open it up and you have a little surprise. The right little panel folds under the left larger panel. Did you expect that extra pop of color from a second piece of B&T?
This card was super easy to make – it has a cardstock base and a couple of extra panels of B&T and cardstock mats. I mounted the little chick on a 2 1/2″ circle of Pixie so that he didn’t get lost amongst the other birdies. I want to share a little trick I have learned using the thin cuts.
First of all I stamp my image, then I line up the thin cuts over the image on my Big Shot (I use a Magnetic Platform and those little thin cuts don’t go moving all around – I’ve also seen Washi Tape used, but in my opinion that magnetic platform is worth it’s weight in gold) and tada a perfectly cut image every time. No more lining up your stamp to hit your die cut piece of paper.
