Friday Fun Fold – Gate Fold Card

By | March 12, 2021

Hi there I have another version of the Double Easel Card similar to the one I shared here. For that card I started with the base and then built the ‘easel fold’ and attached it to the base. Today’s card starts the other way – I built the ‘easel fold’ then attached a piece of… Read More »

Technique Tuesday – Direct to Rubber with Stampin’ Write Markers
