Fancy Fold Birthday Card – Video Tutorial

I am  just tickled with how this card turned out!  I love cards that have a unique fold to them, don’t you?  You just feel like you’re giving that little extra sumthin’-sumthin’!

Fancy Fold Birthday Card- I tend to hoard my Designer Series Paper (DSP) and I decided it was time to STOP hoarding and start ENJOYING!  The DSP is what made this card POP… well, that and the fancy fold going on.

I also like that this card LOOKS complicated but it really isn’t.
