Horse & Sleigh Fun Fold Card

Are you ready for another holiday card? This fun fold design features the Horse & Sleigh Bundle and the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper to create a beauty card. The fun fold is what I call an accordion step card. Can you think of a better name?

When I first saw the Horse & Sleigh Bundle, I knew that I “had to have” it! The products are not found in the catalogs but are Online Exclusive Products.  When visiting my online store, check out the Online Exclusive tab.  With the designs in the One Horse Open Sleigh paper, there are numerous backgrounds that can be created. This is one of the cards from the September card class. If you’d like to order my future class kits, just send me an email and I’ll send you information on my upcoming classes.

Playing In The Rain Fun Fold

This week I am featuring a cheerful fun fold card using the  Playing In The Rain bundle.  The recent class focused on Playing In The Rain Bundle and this is one of the cards participants were able to create.  Isn’t that bunny cute!  Though the stamp set includes the bunny, this bunny is from the Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper.  A  coordinating die from the Playing In The Rain dies makes it easy to cut the bunny shape.  More of the designer series paper is used for the background prints on the card.  Who doesn’t like a cheerful card?! 

Cut Dimensions for the Playing In The Rain Fun Fold Card:
  • Mango Melody Cardstock (Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″; 3″ x 4-1/4″; scrap for kite die cut)
  • Rain or Shine Specialty Designer Series Paper (floral print – 2 pieces cut 2-1/2″ x 4″; checked print 4″ x 5-1/4″ for interior; 2-1/2″ x 6″ for envelope; bunny for die cut)
  • Basic White Cardstock (2 pieces 2-3/4″ x 4″)
