Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Fun Fold Fall card

I'm sure there is a name for this type of fun fold card, I just don't happen to know it. I didn't really invent it as I've seen others like this, but I didn't have directions and figured it out myself, so that counts for something, right?  My first attempt was badly asymmetrical and I was not happy with it at all. I then had some 10th grade geometry float to the forefront of my brain and remembered something about 90 degrees and equal sides of a triangle. I won't even attempt to explain any of that, but I did figure out what I wanted!  This fold allows the stamped image to be on the front of the card or inside. Here are a couple of pictures to demonstrate what I mean:

This was a fun card to make and it features some beautiful fall-themed paper as well as the "Lighthearted Leaves" stamp set!  This set has endless possibilities including coloring with a permanent ink stamped image (Stazon or our new Archival Black ink) and heat embossing with gold or silver or white!  I'm not done playing with this set. Even better, the stamped leaves match the Leaflits Framelits!  Lots to love!

This is an example of what we do at my monthly card classes!  Come and check them out. Watch this blog for details and you can always check my calendar. 

Happy Stampin'!
