How to Make an "S" Fold Card | Waffle Flower Stamps

I don't remember where I first saw how to do the S fold card. It is quite similar to a gatefold but just one side is scored. So I thought I would use the Waffle Flower On My Mark stamps and show you how I do it.

Check out the video

Some of you may know that I have a Dachshund. I've grown up with them my entire life and was lucky enough to find Sobe at a shelter. She has been my shadow from day one. One thing Sobe has done since we brought her home was give hugs. She pushes the top of her head right underneath your jaw... even my husband gets some hugs when he comes home from work.

Card open and on display.

Card closed. (Does not stay closed, added rock to weigh it down)

So the sentiment and the overall fact that the stamp image is a loooonnngg dog was inspired from Sobe's quirks. I'm playing along again with the Color Throwdown challenge, hopefully they don't mind if you enter in twice but I wanted to use the Kraft color in a different way then besides using Kraft cardstock, like in my other card. So instead I use Kraft Ink HA!

  1. Sobe sounds like such a sweetheart, would love to see a video of him giving hugs!! We have a cat Minnie who puts her arms around my neck when I pick her up, and she also goes on her back legs and reaches up with her arms when I bend down to pick her up. Its adorable!! Absolutely love your card, its so clever with how you've stamped the dog images. It looks amazing folded up and so cool when opened too. I'm so happy you shared this with us at TIME OUT!!
