It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! Using the challenge board to choose my elements made this project easy. Let’s face it, we spend more time trying to come up with card ideas than it takes to make the card. Let the challenge board do the “thinking” for you. Here’s my card.
Here’s this week’s board:
I chose to go down the left side: peace, metallic thread, white and by adding some rhinestones I also made tic tac toe on the diagonal: peace, Free, rhinestones. It really is so much fun and easy to create using the challenge board. Give it a try!!!
I love to make fun fold cards and this one is actually the first fun fold style I ever made. (You can see my first fun fold card below.) This style card is really easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of products to put together. You need a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock for the base of the card and a 4 x 5 1/4 layer for the inside of the card. You also need 2 pieces of 4 x 3 DSP and then any shape to put on the front of the card. Here’s how to put it all together.
Fold both 4 x 3 pieces of DSP up to the middle to create a point. Make sure you don’t overlap. Add a bit of glue to keep the folded pieces closed and then fold up/over.
Adhere the folded flaps to the top and bottom of the inside layer then adhere to the card base.
You can make this card with any shape added to the front. The Carols of Christmas Stamp Set was an easy choice for the “Peace” element for my card. I love this sentiment and the large font! I stamped it using Tranquil Tide ink and cut it out using the Layering Squares Framelits. I added Silver Metallic Thread and a folded piece of ribbon behind the sentiment before adhering to the scalloped layer. It’s hard to tell in the photo but I used Clear Wink of Stella to add a little glimmer to the sentiment.
Make sure when you adhere the stamped image to the card you just put adhesive on the top flap (close to the point) so you can open the card. The inside sentiment is from Star of Light Stamp Set. I added a rhinestone to the center of the star on the inside.
I added DSP to the envelope to coordinate with my card.

Here is the first fun fold card I did years ago before I had a blog. My friend, Susan Itell, featured it on her blog. You can see how you can use different shapes on the front.
