SCS FLAP FOLD

YEP…STILL HERE…just running behind as seems to be my usual…in fact I have always thought that the statement” If it wasn’t for last minute I would never get anything done” was specifically directed at me…not that it bothers me…just letting you know..actually we were on the road and down on the Oregon coast to my favorite beach BANDON, OR…here are just a few of my favorite pics from that road trip…of course no road trip would be complete without a quick stop at Rainier…as you can see lots less snow than usual but still standing tall and looking beautiful..

as you can see my calligraphy in the sand is not SUZIE BERINGER’S…I need more practice and although I had fork in the room i forgot it and had to make do with just a stick but it was ok…

ok enough road trip on to the card…

SCS FLAP FOLD CARD.. Again another cute simple fold that just makes your card stand out a little from those store bought cards…and its a great chance to use some embellishments that you die cut or I am great a picking up what use to be dollar bin stuff at Michaels and is not $1.50 BIN stuff… and using that…so here are a few of my samples.

SCS FLAP FOLD…

You will notice that they once again used the small circle to hold the card closed….You could use a belly band if you don’t want to use the circle or you could use a any shape that works for your design… just use foam tape to lift it up so it the flap can tuck into it…

for the cupcake at the top..oh boy oh boy …I get to use an image that will sit on a wobble spring… you can never have too many google eyes or wobble springs…lol…. I gonna try with a MINION …face… let me know what you think…

minion face...

minion face…I love him but was not able to use wobble spring cause the face was too big and it wouldn’t go thru the cut out…:( but still I like it…

wobble spring but with smaller image...actually embellishment from the Michael's 1$ bin..

First TIP: be sure that your make your circle in the card base with just plain edges or it will be more difficult to get the card open…ie don’t use the scallop circle to cut the base card…works fine as they have it here.

Notice again that we are using that little image in this case circles to hold the flap closed… to do this you must ( well maybe not must but works best) if you mount it with foam tape/dots etc….

OK that’s it for this post… go out there and make something…oh by the way you may notice that DAWN has started posting the measurements and scoring on the page with image and the video… I LOVE THIS…it was difficult to go get the measurements from the video cause I was never prepared to write them down the first time I watched it…so now they are on the page one…SO WHAT I DO…is print out that page just so I know the name of the card style and now I will have the measurements also without writing them by hand also easier to share if you want to send a copy to a friend along with the way to access it you can just copy page one…DO BE SURE YOU SET YOUR PRINTER TO ONLY GET PAGE ONE AND MAYBE 2 or you will get all the comments and that can go for pages…yeah I have done it…

AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.…wire headed cyber toad…aka kath

stay tuned for another exciting road trip around the middle of August…WA at its best…

    • I am not sure where I got them and even if I have any of them left … I am not where they are at the moment but if you can wait a few weeks and then just send me your snail mail to my e mail address I can mail you one of the ones I may have left…. if that works for you…
