Fold and Crimp Technique Fun

Tuesday's Technique Challenge on Stampin' Addicts was Fold then Crimp Background.

What a great use for the crimper this technique is! I saw it on Lyssa Zwolanek's blog, and she had seen it from her downline Cathy Breuning from Lake Mills, WI. Cathy credits Tami White originally.

The way I did the technique was first to get my edges even. Using a 5-1/4 X 4 inch piece of cardstock, I scored the four inch side at two inches and the long side at 2 inches from each end as well. Then, I scored a diagonal in the corner and used it as a template to score my fresh sheet of cardstock using only one corner so that they would all be as close to the same as I could manage.

Once the cardstock corners were folded, I just put it through the crimper. I unfolded the corners and finished the card.  The Level 2 hostess set Wings of Friendship by Stampin' Up! makes a sweet little get well card.  This card will be one of the 5 cards for $5 we make at my Chicks and Chocolate event next Thrusday.
