Welcome to my final card for this week of Trucking Along inspiration. As it's a Friday it has to be a fun fold but today's is a super simple one! The fold is what I'm calling a Extra Easy Easel and is one that I saw a fellow crafter called Pauline Barnfather make and just thought wow thats fab!
The card starts with a piece of cardstock measuring 14.85cm x 29.7cm that is scored at 10cm, 14.85cm and 19.7cm. The finished card will fit in a standard C6 envelope.
You then use a bone folder to reinforce the score lines with the first as a valley, the second as a mountain and the third as a valley. This creates a W shape when the card is stood on end.
Next add adhesive to the panel as shown in the picture below.
Fold the card base so that the left-hand large panel covers the adhesive. This creates the extra easy easel card base.
I have decorated my sample with some of the amazing pattern paper from a pack called One horse open sleigh. It's filled with patterns and scenes that evoke a winter journey. The papers are 6" x 6' (15.2cm x 15.2cm) so I used just one sheet to decorate the card!
So that's all from me this week. Next week Gill will be sharing with us here and I'll be jetting of to Las Vegas for a Stampin' Up! Event and a cheeky holiday 😜
As ever have a wonderful weekend whatever your doing remember
