The Creating Kindness design team have done it again with another fabulous theme - Fun Folds! We are also delighted to have the lovely Lou Kitzelman join us as our guest designer this month.
I love a good challenge but I don't often dabble in fancy folds. When I found out what the theme was this month, I couldn't get a Spring card, also known as a Springer card, out of my head and knew I had to make one or it would drive me batty.
The Spring card was the first ever fancy fold card I learned when first starting out as a cardmaker, so I guess it has a special place in my heart. It is actually a very simple card, with a few strategic scorelines to make it stand the way it does.
You need to make sure you adhere the base down so it creates the pedestal the card stands on. My teammate, Cheryll Miller, had the same idea to make this card fold too! Great minds think alike! Cheryll has made a video to demonstrate this awesome wee fold, so head over to her blog to see how it is done!
I have featured the True Gentleman Suite from the Occasions catalogue, pages 44-45. I love this suite for the men in our lives. With a great mix of greens, blues and browns, this DSP is sure to appeal to any male, and not a flower in sight! The Tailored Tag punch works with the fun images and sentiments from the Truly Tailored stamp set. It is easy to trim down slightly and create a mat with another solid colour card punched out as I have done here.
Head on over to my very talented friend, Maria Willis, to see what fun fold project she has in store for us. I know it will be a beauty!
