So I'm pretty much in love with this bridge fold! Today's version is with the beautiful Hearts Come Home Bundle and the Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper. I've shared two other bridge cards this past week, you can see the Smitten Miitten version here and the Glad Tidings version here. I love the dimension of this fun fold, AND the fact that it stands up so the recipient can display it, AND that it folds flat to go in the envelope! Scroll down for the directions!
This pattern from the Christmas Around The World paper is perfect for this scene! This paper is ON SALE this month as part of the buy three get one free deal! All papers that are in the deal are listed below.
This is the sentiment I put on the backside of the card, and this is where I would sign the card.
Today was World Card Making Day - and also the first session of Stamp-A-Stack!
The happy crafters at today's session had a lot of fun and made 12 beautiful cards!! I have 7 more sessions of Stamp-A-Stack this coming week - can't wait!
