Hi again all! Its another Friday and that means another Stamp Simply Challenge today! This weeks is called 'Fun Folds'. We were to make a card with some type of fold besides the typical fold..side, top. Sooo this is what I did, it's call an S-fold card:
The size of my card is a typical 5 1/2 by 4 1/4. I just cut the cardstock how you regularly do, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2...then score at 2 1/8 and at 4 1/4. Fold at the 4 1/4, like normal, then just fold the scored 2 1/8 panel UP to meet at the top of the card. On my card I used Terrifically Tacky tape to hold that top panel down because SU! cardstock is so stiff and I wanted it to be sure and hold good! One thing about cards like this, it forces you to decorate the inside too! Here is my card in the 'open' position:
This was really a super simple card to make. Back when I first started making cards, this is how I started, with folds and cut aways and cut outs! But didnt have any of the fancy tools to do it with then! So you can imagine how bad they looked! I kinda like this one! Ya'll know me and my love of bright stuff! LOL!
Ok, be sure and go look at what the wonderful DT for Sharon has done this week! They are sooo awesome!! Here are the links below, and also on my sidebar:
Dee Jackson, please keep her in your prayers, shes having a bit of medical problems and is taking this week off! Also, off this week is Becky Oehlers, I didnt link them here, but they are linked in my sidebar if you would ever like to visit these two talented ladies!
Thanks for stopping by today...and so sorry been a bit scarce this week. Still dealing with my ear problem I've been having and then cleaned and that seemed to make it worse for some reason...I guess all the bending over, made it stop back up and making me all dizzy again. It just pops and everything like how it does when you are in a high altitude....At least not hurting like it was....so that tells me its better!
