I Love Fun & Easy!

Can I just say I am a lazy crafter? I want pretty cards but I don’t want to spend hours making them with lots of die cuts, paper, ink colors, yadda, yadda, yadda. Nope I want quick, easy, and fun, which is why I love Fun Fold cards.

Fun fold cards often seem intricate and involved but in reality they are often very easy and quick to make. As soon as I saw this Gatefold Easel card I KNEW I had to make it. It looks very complicated but in reality, with just a few score lines and a couple of cut outs, you’ve got a card that will really make people go WOW – how did you make it?

We crafters never reveal our secrets – ok we really do reveal our secrets because we are so excited to share how we made it. So now I’m going to share with you how to make this double fun fold card.
