KSS - Fun Fold Monday

Third Monday brings with it another Fun Fold design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. Here in our state, the first bluebonnets of the season are cropping up and in another week or two they will be in full bloom along highways throughout the Texas hill country. Many Texans will be grabbing their cameras, hopping in their cars, and taking to the roads looking for those magical photographic moments that happen each spring in Texas!

Today's card was made from a 5.5 x 11 inch piece of card stock scored at 2.75 inches from both ends to create a basic gate fold with designer paper added on top. I made a die cut frame, cut an oval from its center, and cut a white oval on which to stamp. The top half of the frame was glued to the top of the gate fold. The bottom half of the stamped oval was glued to the bottom gate fold. They slide together and interlock to close the card.

Stamps: Bluebonnets Multi Step Clear Stamps by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Designer Paper: Susan Winget Meadow by K & Company

This is how the card started:

I added a layer of designer paper and a white panel inside and the frame and stamped oval to the front:

And here is what it looks like when the stamped oval in inserted into the frame for closing:

It is a fun and easy card to make yet it still has the WOW factor for the person who receives it.
