Post by wimom » Sat Jun 01, 2019 6:00 pm

The winner via random number generator is No.2, Retiree3. And I was so happy to see someone try a box card that I will send an additional $5 gift certificate to tms58! Thanks to all for joining the card challenge! 
1 - Charleneanne
2 - Retiree3
3 - Jaire
4 - Traveler
5 - tms58
6 - tms58 (bonus for box card)
7 - Tammey
8 - jcsmaestra

---------------------

This month’s challenge is to make a card that uses at least two folds in the base paper. These can be pretty simple or more complex -- whatever you're up for! Google will bring you many samples of tri-fold, gate fold, Z-fold, easel, side-step and center-step cards along with diagrams and instructions.

This site has a list of special fold cards with links to instructions and samples (the handbag card is especially cute!):
https://beccysplace.blogspot.com/2011/0 ... cards.html
(Thanks to Average Kim, who posted that link back in 2015!)

Here is my sample, a box card I made for my adult son’s birthday last month. It folds flat to fit into a large envelope:

And this is a box card I made for a friend a while ago:

These are links to the two sites I used to learn how to make box cards; one includes a video.
https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/reso ... upboxcard/
http://www.aboverubiesstudio.com/tuesda ... -box/8564/
Don’t be intimidated – once you cut and fold the box you will see how easily it goes together, and the instructions include what sizes to cut your decorative papers. Tip: Use Score-Tape or similar extra-sturdy adhesive to make sure your box and inserts stay attached when folding/unfolding the card.

The rules: You may submit only one card. It must be a new, paper card (no digi).  Post to this thread by 11:59 p.m. June 30. You may combine with one other monthly challenge if it allows. A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry via the random number generator.

BONUS entry this month for box cards, and If the chosen winning card is a box card, I will increase the prize to a $10 ACOT gift card!

Please ask if you have any questions.

I'm glad you found that link.  It was ages ago that I shared it, lol!  I really need to make some cards this month, so I will be entering here!  Thanks for the challenge!

Simple two fold card for my aunt's 88th birthday.  The saying inside says, "Your doctor recommended a bran muffin instead of a birthday cake"    My aunt likes pretty cards with insults in them.  lol

Here is my entry. It is way too lumpy bumpy to lie flat and will not fit in an envelope so I will hand deliver it to DH for his birthday instead of trying to mail it to my cousin.  Live and learn. lol
