The IMPOSSIBLE Card Fold Made EASY!

In my recent issue (October) of Papercraft Inspirations there is a tutorial on how to make the IMPOSSIBLE card fold.  From what I read this card was based off an old playing-card trick....it has kind of an illusioin or trick of the eye.


The trick for me was figuring it out since I'm not good at metric measurements.  But after studying the pictures I figured out my own way to make it (measurements are definitely not the same) and came up with a simple "formula" that ANYONE could use no matter what size card they want to make or if they want to make it square or rectangle.  And yes it is the exact same IMPOSSIBLE card fold.  And because I love you all so much I made a video tutorial that you can watch....just CLICK HERE 

So I will give you hint.....the card is one piece of cardstock and the center piece pops up all by itself :)

Here is what I have made....so far....hee hee hee

4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Christmas card
image colored with colored pencils

5 1/2" x 5 1/2" Birthday card 
Cupcake cut from Cricut Artiste cartridge (CTMH) and colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers

5" x 6 1/2" Encouragement card 

3" x 4" Place card (for dinners, weddings, etc) 

5" x 6 1/2" Shabby Chic card
Lace covered and shabby flower and ribbon and pearls

And  I found some awesome challenges....
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Sept Technique / coloring
A Gem Of A Challenge - #227 One For The Girls
Hiding In My Craft Room - #371 Any Holiday
Happy Little Stampers - Sept. Christmas Challenge

Halloween Luminary with Sherri Baldy's My Besties

Halloween is next month and the design team and I are having fun with Sherri Baldy's new release Halloween My Besties digital images and papers!!!

I like to step outside the box once in a while and do something other than a card.  I upcycled a jar with a napkin I printed with one of the digital papers from the My Besties "A Bit Of A Brew" digital paper pack.  I also used some alcohol ink on the jar and added some fun yarns around the top.

Halloween Birthday Shaker Card with My Besties

Halloween is quickly approaching and so is my sister-in-law's birthday which happens to be on Halloween!!!

She loves Halloween themed birthday cards and I just happened to have this awesome printable paper pack from Sherri Baldy's My Besties called "A Bit Of A Brew" and thought it was perfect for her card.  But I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it until my creative hubby came up with the idea of making the spider web a SHAKER!!!

HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
