This week I had fun making THREE fun folds, all with one thing in common.
They are Lock Fold cards (or locking folds), which just means they have a closure on the front to keep them closed.

The printable Recipe/measurement PDFs are located under each card below

The first card is called a Gate Fold Slide & Lock.
Not sure where it originated but I learned it from my talented friend, Cindy Brumbaugh.
(You can see Cindy’s Ice Cream cards Video HERE )

I used the Ornate Garden paper along and added a butterfly from the Butterfly Bijou paper to save time on coloring.
The sliding mechanism is super easy to make and gives a basic gate fold card some extra interest.

This paper is so pretty any way you use it!
It’s from the Fine Art Floral suite and I used the Butterfly Brilliance bundle but you could really
use a heart, a circle, a square….as long as you have the fold down the middle, it works!

I really love this one!  It’s easy to do and really holds the flap down.
I used the Forever Greenery bundle and the soon to be retired Pretty Peacock Cardstock and Ink.

By the way, the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog Retiring List will be out near the end of March!
So if you have the 2019-2021 In Color ink pads and need the re-inkers, I suggest to grab those soon.
