Fancy folds are cards that have an unusual opening.  If you search Pinterest or Google you'll find lots of ideas.

Then there are fancy cuts. ((Yes, I made that name up!))

Fancy cuts are card created with an unusual cardstock angle.  It opens like any other card, but visually, it's very different.   

I held a live Facebook event this past Sunday.  During my "Spotlight with Lisa" event I featured a fancy cut.   I'm calling it the "Separate V-Cut Card".  

I recorded the live event and have included it below. I've also included pictures of the cards and basic cutting dimensions. Since this is an unusual cut I recommend viewing the video before making your own.

The video also includes information on my January Studio Stamps in the Mail and a sneak peek at the Occasions Catalog (debuting January 4th) and Stampin' Up's largest sale of the year – Sale-A-Bration!
