Fancy W Fold Card

Hey crafty peeps - we're doing Fun Folds this month at Die Cut Divas, sponsored by the fabulous Hero Arts, my favorite company!! Check out my DT post HERE. I wanted to do a fold I've never done so googled some ideas. Found Erin Reed Makes and her video with 5 fun folds. I chose the Fancy W (at about 3:34 into the video) for today's card; it's the inside that has all the fun!! Here's the card front - a simple A2 card with the fold at left on the short side:

Here's a top view of the inside:

It's very easy to construct - watch Erin's video for specifics but the W comes from a 1" x 11" strip folded in four equal sections and you only glue down the outside one on each side. She added four 2" squares, one per each section of her folded strip. Here's a view of the open inside:

I decided it would be fun to use circles & add another fun fold, the peek-a-boo window, to each. Here's a close-up of the windows open:


Hero Arts Stamps: Galaxy Peek-a-Boo Parts,
You Are Loved (globe), &
Rocket Thanks (retired)
Hero Arts Dies: Nesting Circle Infinity Dies &

Simon Says Stamp Birthday Strips
Tim Holtz Stormy Sky Distress Ink
Ranger Seafoam White ep
Versamark Ink
Memento Paris Dusk Ink
Authentique, Anchor Paper & 
Neenah white cardstock

I couldn't resist this galaxy set this summer but am just using it now - typical me!! So I'll also add my card to Darnell's February NBUS Challenge. And guess what, the window dies are getting first play too. What would I do without the NBUS Challenge?? You can tell I love Hero Arts because so much of my NBUS comes from that company - I have a hard time keeping up with using my orders!!

Short month, friends, so you only have until 9pm Pacific Time on February 28th to link up here - hope to see you in the gallery!! Hero Arts generously gave us a $25 gift card for our random winner (to be announced on March 2nd).

Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!!
