This is a simple “flap” card that is a little bit unusual for me. The left-hand flap is short and fits under the stamped oval to hold the card closed. It is a nice way to show off the pretty Graphic 45 paper–and I made another “Mom” card for Operation Write Home (OWH). I made this card for the OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge: Fun Folds. Thanks for checking-in today.

I like fancy fold cards, but seldom take the time to make them. I had made a card like this and held onto it as a “template” so I could remember how to do it again! So I’m not sure if this particular accordion fold has a special name, but I call this an offset accordion fold! There is really nothing fancy about the process, but having an unusual fold does make the card seem kind of fancy. I stamped the Judikins flourishes all over the flourish cardstock to tie in some of the orange from the floral image. I colored the Penny Black tulip with Copic markers and used the larges die in my set for the image, so I had to trim the orange cardstock around it to give it a little frame and a little more weight both visually and to stand up to the folds. This is a birthday card for one of my stamping buddies. Thank you for stopping by today!
Here is a group of Origami Necktie cards that Trenton and I made again this year. I used scraps of cardstock for all of the shirts, and brads, buttons and Origami paper from my stash to create the cards. I will be shipping them off to Operation Write Home for Father’s Day cards. Trenton always folds the neckties for me and I create the shirts. We’re a good team! These are really fun cards. If you’d like to make some yourself, there here is a tutorial link for you to follow. It is a great way to use up your extra scraps of paper! Thanks for visiting.
