Fancy fold

September class by post – Centre Easel card

Measure ¾" (2cm) along the fold of the card at both sides and make a small mark, then make a similar mark at the same measurements on the open side, and trim off a strip at both sides of the card to create a central panel. Fold this panel in half into the centre fold. Using a glue roller like Snail, glue the Plush Vellum square on top of the Gold Foil Square. Add your decoration to the centre.  I stamped the Poinsettia Petal stamps on Whisper White card using versamark ink and then used Gold heat embossing powder [...]

September class by post – DSP Gatefold Card

This fancy fold is actually very simple to do. Fold your card in half to create a standard card base. Measure halfway down the front of the card and cut the top half away to create a "gate". Glue some strips of DSP to a layer of Whisper White, spacing them equally.  The easiest way to do this is to stick the first and third strips first, then place the middle one in between.  Glue this layer inside the card.

August Class by Post – Pyramid Cube card

Of all the fancy folds I've done recently, I think this has been the easiest AND the most impressive.  It folds flat to go into a standard envelope, and pops open to surprise the recipient. My card base is made from Basic Black cardstock, which sets off the Black and metallic Brass elements in the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I've folded the card to make a square tube, and when it's flattened it's the same width as a standard card.  Then I made 2 smaller tubes from the same Basic Black card, one for each size. [...]

August Class by Post – Half-fold Spinner card

This card is a lot easier to make than it looks!  It's great for men's cards when you use this suite, but of course you could make it in any colours. I started with a cardbase in Misty Moonlight cardstock, and then folded the front panel back in half.  Then I used the Layering Circle dies to cut a hole from the front of the card, using the fold line to ensure a central position.  I wanted a hole that was larger than the globe die.  I then used the same circle dies to [...]
