Louise - Some Fancy Folded Cards

Hi, Louise here with a few cards to share that may impress your non-crafty friends as they look harder to make than what they are.

First up we have a Waterfall Card, you can find tutorial for this on splitcoast stampers , but I found it REALLY hard to follow and suggest follow this easy to follow video on YouTube.......

Front view as it would arrive in the mailbox :)

The bottom being slowly pulled to create the "waterfall" of images...

Side view of images being pulled down.....
Cool huh???? And pretty simple to make once you get the score lines figured out.  I have used papers from MM Twinkle 8x8 paper pack,  I love the colours in this collection, bright but traditional.  I have also used "December 25" clear stamps by KaiserCraft  for my images.

Next up is a simple Gate fold card........

Front view closed

Half open so you can see the split.....
 I didn't get a photo of the inside which is all decorated as the batteries went flat in my camera.  I have used a precoloured image on this card which makes things even easier.  I have then added highlights with my faithfull  stickles, I don't think I can make a card without using these little lovelies.

And last but certainly not least we have a kickstand card....

As it would arrive in the mail......

And standing on it's "stand"
I have used the MM Twinkle papers again for this one and added a die cut doily which was cut with THIS Cheery Lynn die.  I have used the December 25 clear stamps again along with some flowers in the corner blinged up a bit with stickles.  The precoloured image has been cut out with a label die in my cuttlebug.

So that is a wrap for me for this time, hope there is something here to inspire you a little.
