Fun Fold Friday - Silly Goose

 Welcome back on this yet another cold day. We've had really cold few week's so far and I personally don't like it! Anyway, back to the geese. As this is the last day for now with using the Silly Goose stamp set, I have a had real good fun in making this one today. From the front, it looks like a simple card fold until you change the angle. 

I started with a Thick White card base 29.7cm wide by 14.85cm high. In Imperial measurements, it is 11,1/4" by 5,7/8". I scored along the long width and scored at 10.5cm, 12cm, 22.5cm and 24cm. Imperial... 4,1/8", 5.3/4", 8,7/8" and 9,1/2". I die cut some wiggly rectangles using the Deckled Rectangles dies. I used the larger for the outside on each layer and smaller all the way down as many layers that I wanted. In this case today, 4 layers.

To join the layers together, I used the Foam adhesive strips. I love the blocking that they create. As the card would have been visible from the edges of the card, I made a frame to cover the whole of the inside. 

I cut a piece white card to make the frame. It was 12.5by 16cm or 4,3/4" by 6,1/4". I scored this at 0.5cm and 1.5cm on all 4 sides. Or 3/16!" and 9/16" again on all 4 sides. You'll need to burnish all of the score lines and trim some of the corner folds off to be able to fix them into the position nice and squarely.

Adding Designer series paper to decorate and a few of the gorgeous geese to complete it.

Well, that's it from me for the week once again. Thank you so much for joining me once again, I hope that you have found some inspiration this week but until I return in 2 weeks time, Cary will be here to inspire you so please have fun. 

Until I get back, Stay well, Keep safe and until I am back,

  1. Wow, how clever are you. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. This one I will definitely be trying. Thank you so much for going the extra mile putting up a tutorial too. I feel really happy that I found you. I started my own blog today and although no way as good as yours I know it takes ages to do a small write up of what I've done, so I can only imagine how long it took you. Thanks again X X

  2. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š writing post's takes time but it's worth persevering with as it allows you to share your creations with lovely people like yourself.
