Heart Gate-Fold Cards

Hi, everyone!

Last Friday I was making some cards to mail out to my parents. We are in Alaska, and they are in South Carolina. I made one to mail to Mama at her home, and one to mail to Daddy at the nursing home he is in. I included photos of us in both cards. They love getting photos in the mail. I wrote on the insides before I remembered to photograph them for my blog post, so instead I just held them both up in my hand for a quick photo to include here.

I love these card folds! There are several in the Silhouette online store with different shapes on the center fold like paw prints, a lighthouse, these hearts, and many more. They are fun to make!

All of the pattern papers are from new DCWV 12x12 stacks I picked up at Joann's recently. Normally here in Alaska these 12x12 pads are $24. In the lower 48 I think they are more around $20. I went to Joann's a couple of weekends ago and just happened to see they were all on sale for $9.99! Then when I got to check out, I was able to use a 20% off coupon even on the sale items. I was thrilled!

So last Friday, I went back to get some more because they were still on sale. I haven't bought 12x12 stacks in so long that almost all of the ones they had were new to me. I got 3 more on Friday, and this time instead of the 20% off coupon on your entire purchase (sale or not) at checkout, I had a 25% off one! Woo-Hoo! Another fabulous shopping trip!

Some of the papers were inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
