Quarter Fold Card – Dog Card

Whether you’re a dog or cat lover, this new suite of products will have you saying “awwwww”. The patterned paper includes images for various breeds, paw prints, stripes (perfect for all kinds of cards!), black and white printed text – just to name a few. Check out the fun patterns on page 149.

This quarter fold card is super easy to create because it mimics the closing of a box. I opted to use the same color cardstock for each of the card base panels that connect, but consider mixing and matching. Adding designer paper to the exposed panels provides another fun way to dress up your card.

The box-like opening reveals the adorable insert. Plus, this fold is perfect for adding a gift card inside. The box-like fold insures it won’t fall out and provides a unique presentation of your gift.

The coordinating trinkets can be tied to the trim, used to make earrings, bracelets or even added to a stamped image, like I’ve done here. Watch the video for tips on hiding the trinket opening. All you’ll need is a hobby knife and a Glue Dot!

Quarter Fold Card – Cat Card

Are you a cat lover? This same Suite of products provides equal love for those of you who prefer felines! Playful and cuddly images are hard to resist, especially when colored with the alcohol-based Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The trinkets are perfectly sized to add to the stamped or designer paper images. Here I’ve used the coordinating trim, separated the black strand from white and created a bow.

Some of the images in the designer paper can be cut out using the coordinating Pets Dies (page 177) to create your adorable furry friends cards even faster!
