Hi everyone, I’ve finally found a minute to sit down amongst all the boxes & the moving chaos to write today’s blog post.
I’ve made these easy “M” fold cards by complete accident as I had intended to make a “Z” fold card!
In case your not familiar with a “Z” OR “M” fold card here’s a side profile, as you see it looks like the letter “M”
As with most of my cards, I try to make them easy and this one certainly is.
I used some of the supplies from my June Hobbybase kit.
This months box was called “Bee Happy” and was full of cool products.
If you would like to find out more about the Hobbybase Club or to subscribe to the monthly kits please visit www.hobbybase.club
Check out the unboxing video below.
To make these cards you will need…
6 x 6 card base or 1 piece of 12″ x 6″ cardstock and score along the 12″ side at 6″
1 piece of 5.3/8 x 12″
Score along the 12″ side at 5.3/4 & 8.7/8
1 piece of 5.1/4 x 5.1/4 to mat the inside of your card.
1 piece of 5″ x 5″ to mat of the front of your card.
1 piece of 5″ x 2.3/4 for the very front fold.
1 piece of 4.3/4 x 2.1/2 to layer on top.
Most of the supplies used are from the kit however you can some of the supplies I used below.
Papers used are the Dovecraft “Bee Happy” range from Hobbybase
The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is also by Dovecraft and available from Amazon.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.
This card has so much dimension and different layers to it, it will certainly stand out from the others.
As always I try to make my fun fold cards fold flat and fit into normal envelopes, this one fits into a 6 x 6 envelope.
I also had fun playing around with the Dye Izink colour Meil that we received in the kit. Having never used them before I really enjoyed creating all the different tones of colour and will certainly be looking into getting some more colours as they are very easy to use.
Once again I hope you have enjoyed today’s tutorial and give it a go, remember to share your makes over on my Facebook page Mixed Up Craft.
