Country Bouquet Valentine Fun Fold Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I can hardly believe we are in the last full week of January….. already! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so it is time to rustle up some cards to share with friends and loved ones.

My fold today, is one I call a Lazy Z fold – basically because the front of the card is folded back on itself giving a lopsided Z shape, but lop-sided does not sound as good a lazy – so hence its name 🙂

Welcome to my Corner of the World

2023 Flip Over Desk Calendar New Year Penguin

Welcome to my Corner of the World

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Once again I enjoyed designing and making my flip over calendar for 2023, with the help of my friend, Elly – while she was visiting from the UK in October. . As I have done for the last few years I am going to be sharing one at the start of each month. This was designed for a stamp camp in early December 2022, we had such fun making them and my ladies have made me promise to do another for 2024

I am changing things a little for this year, I recognise not everyone is into making 3D items so have created a card for each month, using elements from the calendar for that month. .

So today I share, a Happy New Year Penguin with a simple fun fold for the card!
