Cactus Fold-A-Long Card

Good morning friends

This card has been made for several months, I just haven't had a chance to post it yet. I used the Cactus Fold-A-Long die set, which I really like. Below is the card in the closed position. It's held closed with a magnet between the sunglasses inside and outside the card. These magnets are strong, to be able to hold through four layers of card stock!

This was the first card I made with this die, and there is always a bit of a learning curve the first time you use a die that is interactive. While it was fairly straight forward, figuring out which paper patterns to cut with which end of the die took me a bit.

Fold-A-Long cards open from the centre to reveal a fun pop-up shape inside. The flower, sunglasses and face dies come with the set, but I've left off any words until I go to send the card.

I used my favourite dot stamp to add a little somethin' somethin' to the happy cactus inside.

This card went into my stash for now.
