Here is a technique that I really like.  I saw a card similar to this on someone's site and can't for the life of me remember whose site it was on.  I don't even know what this technique is called, so I call them Folded Front Cards.  The real trick to this card is to find the center of the top background paper and cut it to or almost to the center of the paper and then fold the paper back.  It's nice if you use two-sided paper, but I don't have a lot of that, so on this particular card I simply stamped dots on the back of the top background paper.  Then use a coordinating background underneath the top background paper.
On my second card I did use two-sided paper and I think I like that better, so I guess I have to go shopping for more two-sided paper.  Yea I love shopping for stamp stuff because I always find more than I'm originally shopping for.  Hard on the budget though!!!  Tee hee!!!  :)
P. S. One little tip: If you want to round the corners on the top piece that you cut to the middle of the card, then do it BEFORE you glue it on as it is really hard to get to once it has been glued on.


  1. These are both gorgeous.
    I am always on the look out for different folds and this one looks as though it might just be lots of fun.

  2. TY Myrna...I've made several different cards with this fold and, yes, it is a fun fold to do. Hope you enjoy it and TY for visiting my blog! :)

  3. Thank you for showing us the fold. It's always nice to do something different.

  4. You're welcome, Lilla...Thank you for stopping by and taking a look! I hope you have fun making one. :)
