Unusual Book Cradle Cards

Hi friends, today I’m sharing a new fold card which I’m calling a Book Cradle card, as the base reminds me of a book cradle!

It’s a very easy card style to make, and another great one for showing off those lovely pattern papers we all have.

These cards all fold flat and will fit into a 6 x 6 envelope.

You have space to stamp and write your message on the back.

SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THESE CARDS
