Fold it Up

 Guess what time it is.....a new Shopping Our Stash challenge and its Fold it up, we want you to show us your favourite Fun/Fancy fold card. Some days I find making a fun fold card is easier than making a regular A2 card, just remember to measure twice cut once no matter what fun fold tutorial you use and wow there are so many, Rocker card, many types of Easel cards, my favourite to make is a triangle easel card. 

I love my House Mouse Design stamps and they work so well with fun folds 
The fold I used is a Double Z Fold the tutorial I used is from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts Video.
This was one of the early HM stamps it is a wood block, the cardstock is at least 8 years old, the name eludes me and the happy birthday is also one of my fav. wood mount stamps dated 2001 The newest item used on this card is the Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched rectangle and scalloped rectangles well used for over 5 years.

This is what the fold looks like with the card open. The added sentiments are from a set I was happy to find in my stash  One of the inside sentiments was a clear stamp set from Photoplay and the second was an older Stampin'up set. 

Just another angle of the how the  card stands. 

I'm adding tis to:

Seize the Birthday ~~ Anything Goes.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and now head to the Main Blog and check your the fabulous fun folds the rest of the design team have made.
