It's time to do something a little bit different. For some of you it'll put you out of your comfort zone but that's not a bad thing.
The challenge at Pile It On is to Make It a Fun Fold. There are so many fun folds to try and if you haven't ever tried one now's as good a time as any to start. If you have no idea where to begin I've added "Fancy Fold" to my label list near the bottom of my sidebar. If you click on the words "Fancy Fold" you'll get a list of my posts using some different folds like the Origami Diamond Fold, the Center Step Fold and the Pop Up. In the posts there should be links to tutorials on how to make them. Or you can try going to the Splitcoast Stampers resource section for tutorials. And when all else fails you can do a google search.
This card is a plain Easel Fold. There are so different versions of the Easel Fold but I haven't learned them. I chose this fold because it's easy, I can do it without looking up directions and I was short of time this week but if you've got some time to play around try the Pop Up, it's really fun. Actually so are all the others. I think I am going to resolve to use a fancy fold at least once a month so that I will be able to do them without needing the directions.
