SUOC59 - Fun Folds!
One of my favorite cards to make is one that has a fun little surprise for the recipient when they open it. No, I'm not talking about money or a gift card (although that is always a nice surprise!). I mean a fun fold, or pop-up, or slider.....something that makes the card more interactive.
That's the theme for this week's challenge at SUO Challenges; make a card that uses a different fold than just right down the middle. It can be a gate fold, or a swing card, or any number of fun ways to fold. My card is a Six Fold card, because that's how may flaps there are to open!
I used a ribbon belly band to hold it closed, but you could just as easily add a flower or popped-up circle with a greeting to tuck the flap of the image under.
