A Fancy Fold balcony Card….What!?

Who doesn’t love a New Fancy Fold?!

Hey Guys!!

First off, I want to say how much I LOVE Fancy Folds, today I am sharing a Balcony Card…..What!? Yes, I have never heard about it either, so I am sharing with you how to make one by doing my weekly video that you can watch. Also, who doesn’t love a new fancy fold?! Second I saw this fold on Pinterest, but have never heard about it, have you?

Consequently, after looking at Pinterest, I started making it and here is what I made:

Front of the Balcony Card
I LOVE Fancy Folds, today I am sharing a A Balcony Card…..What!?

In addition to Fancy Folds, I also like techniques! As a result of that, I am showing you my 2nd card that I did on my video using the same set Hey, Chick! and Hey Birthday Chick. In this case, I used the technique where you emboss with a folder, the entire card front, layers and all (I placed ‘Happy Birthday’ several times down one side, and embossed that too!), it’s a very cool technique!

Who doesn’t love a Technique!?

Generally I like to keep to one stamp set for my videos, but this time the two: Hey Chick! and Hey Birthday Chick work so well together, I HAD to use them both! Subsequently, you will need to buy Hey Chick asap, since it won’t be available after June! And, doing a Balcony card….what!?, yes a Balcony card was a must for me, I hope you like it as much as I do!
