Default LSC177 A Stamper's Chore: Folding

LSC177 A Stamper’s Chore: Folding!!

Now, I know that all you Challenge Chasers do not get a thrill out of folding laundry…but you do like to fold paper! So let’s see what you’ve got. Create some interest in your card by having it open in a new way. Whether it is a gate fold, a Z-fold or some other neat trick you want to share with the rest of us, cards are more fun when there is something unexpected happening with them. As always on Friday, keep your layers and embellishments limited. Less CAN BE more!

Here are some samples:

Sock Monkey Gate fold

Bella Z fold

Gate Fold Tutorial



Keyword: LSC177

LSC177 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

I am definitely in. I really have little experience with creative folds so I am happy to try to learn something new. Thanks for standing in, Dawn, and I appreciate the early post for the West Coasters.

Hi Everyone!

I LOVE making tri fold cards...

So the tri fold is my fold of choice today for the challenge.

I made one a while ago with the Time Well Spent sentiment.

I chose If the Halo Fits sentiment for todays card!

I included 2 views so you can see the entire card...
I hope you like it!
Thanks for looking!
Hope you have a day shared with friends and flowers...

(...my day will be with friends we going to see Menopause the play tonite ..YEAH!)

Great challenge. I just saw a new to me fold last night that I was itching to try. I even commented to my son that I hoped that there was a way to incorporate it into today's challenge.

This isn't a very creative fold, but it is a little different from a regular fold:
