More fun folds

Well, I’m really late getting the cards and recipes posted for the cards from my Facebook Live on February 24th. I was lucky enough to have some social – out of the house! – events last weekend and then this week ended up being a work week from hell. I haven’t been this glad it’s Friday in a loooong time. So, I have a glass of wine in hand, a good movie on the tube, and my laptop handy to get these things posted!

I wanted to show some more fun folds last week and show an interlocking gate fold technique using the Hey Chick/Birthday Chick and Sweet Ice Cream bundles that are available now. One of my cards also highlights some of the items that were available for SALE-a-bration. One more reason I’m sorry this is late since that promotion ended on 2/28 since you can no longer order them. My apologies!

The first card pictured uses a few elements from the Hey Chick/Birthday Chick bundles that are available now (click here) until May 3rd. I’m so glad they brought back the Hey Chick set – and even more glad that I saved it from the first time it was available a couple of years ago. The images are SO cute!

The interlocking gate fold technique uses the Layering Squares dies to create a frame (the “buckle”) and the square with the chicken image that locks inside. The thicker the frame, the more sturdy the buckle is. See the list of materials used below. (Sorry – the paper is no longer available).

The second card uses the Sweet Ice Cream bundle (click here) which I also used in the card I posted last week. Check out all the great images, paper and accessories in this bundle. I didn’t make this buckle as sturdy, so I’m going to have to add another layer in the buckle. I love the sprinkles on the ice cream – those come as part of the suite.

This final card is a different kind of fold called a pocket card. The stamp set and punch are part of the Sweet Strawberry Suite (click here) which is in the spring mini catalog, unfortunately, the paper for the card was part of SALE-a-bration and is no longer available. There are lots of examples of pocket cards on Pinterest – check them out! I’m also going to try and add a tutorials section to my website that will have written dimensions/instructions on how to make these fun techniques.
