Who are the "Blogging Friends?"
Almost three years ago, I organized a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who had never met before. Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of paper-crafting we have created a fun blog hop.
Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created for you!
In case you’ve never ‘done’ a blog hop before, it’s really easy. At the bottom of this post, you’ll see a "next" image and when you click on it, you’ll be taken directly to the next participant in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you’ll hop through all of the participating blogs, back to where you started – and you’ll see all of the amazing projects created for your inspiration.
I promise, you won't want to miss a stop! We try and wow you each month with our creativity!
The theme of this month's hop is "fun folds." These are cards that have an added interactive element other than a simple straight forward book fold or top fold card.
Two years ago one of my New Year's (creative) resolutions was to make more of these cards because they are pretty impressive! In reality, most of these fun fold cards appear a lot more difficult to make than they actually are. Plus, from my experience, the recipient of the card (if you actually give them away!) thinks you're pretty darn talented!
The two masculine cards I created for today's hop are called "bridge folds" and these are so easy to make.
I have included a free PDF tutorial for you near the end of this post so you can make these cards too!

*Please note this card does not fit into a regular A2 sized envelope. Unless you alter the measurements it requires a 5 1'2" square envelope.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you have enjoyed my projects today!

Hello readers! Thanks for stopping in today! I have a masculine card to share with you that was inspired by the sketch challenge at Global Design Project. When I first saw their very linear sketch I immediately thought of the tire tracks from the One Wild Ride stamp set and felt that it would be a really good match. You really can't tell from these photos, but I did heat emboss the tire tracks with black embossing powder, so they are very shiny in real life!
Here is the challenge banner that inspired my card:
Here is the stamp set "One Wild Ride" that I used to create this card:
