I was looking around on Pinterest for inspiration and came across a card by Patty Bennett. She used a long piece of Ornate Garden Designer Paper folded in 3 places to make an accordion style fun fold card. So I clicked on the pinned idea and it took me to her blog post where she shared how versatile this basic fold can be. I was reminded with one of her variations that I HAD indeed used this same fold in past cards I’ve made, too.
Patty showed that you can get four card variations from that folded designer paper, but I thought of one more. And I just showed these variations live on YouTube about an hour ago. (I used the Christmastime is Here Designer Paper, the Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set, the Sweetest Borders Dies, and All The Trimmings Ribbon, and the Wonderful Gems for the first card. And I used the Healing Hugs Stamp Set and Ornate Borders Dies for the second one.) And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
