Fancy fold

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 [...]

August Class by Post – Z Fold card

This is another card that's simple to make, but gets a Wow! when it's opened.  Full measurements were given to my Class by Post members, and I hope to do a video in due course. The card base and front strip were cut from Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The panels and front strip were decorated with Designer Series Paper from the World of Good Specialty DSP pack, and also Whisper White panels that were stamped with sentiments from the Beautiful World stamp set.  I created the globe embellishment using Brass foil sheets and the World [...]

July Class by Post – Balloon card 3

Still continuing with the Hooray to You cards, this one uses foam daubers directly onto the stamp to give a multicoloured effect.  I find it's easier doing this with the Stamparatus, as you can go over on the top again if one area hasn't stamped properly, but you can use a clear block as well if you wish. I stamped on Whisper White card, then layered onto Magenta Madness card.  For the card blank, I used Mango Melody to make a standard card blank, then folded the front in half, and glued my panel on top.  I'm calling this [...]
