So ..... here’s the first one!!

I’m not actually sure that it’s called a Mountain/Valley Fold card but it’s what it reminds me of when I look at it so that’s what I called it. It’s a very simple fold but gives you a different look and will fit into a DL envelope for posting.

You need to start with an A4 sheet of card, a score board and bone folder

Place the short edge of the card up against the left hand side of the score board and score on the A5 gatefold line and the A4 zig zag or DL line

Turn the card around so the other short edge is against the left hand side of the score board and score on the A4 zig zag or DL line again - this will give you three score lines

(if you look closely i've numbered my score board 1,2 and 3 so that I remember which lines to use)

You then need to fold your card so that you have, what I call, two mountains and a valley, one mountain being taller than the other

Then, gather all your papers, tools and bits and pieces you will need to make your card

This is the fun part where your imagination can run riot, all there is to do now is to make up your card with your chosen papers, stamps and embellishments.

And there you are!!

The goodies I used are as follows :-
Basic Grey Urban Prairie - Bountiful 12x12 paper
Dotty Bazzill - Slipper
Petaloo Flowers
Memento Ink - Rosebud
Hobby Art Clear Stamp Set - General Greetings
Circles and Scallop Cirlces Nestabilities
All supplies can be purchased at In2Crafting by clicking here (subject to availability)

I've used a magnolia stamp but I have also entered this card into a challenge via my personal blog (if you want to be nosy click here)

I hope I have given you some inspiration and if you have a go and live locally bring your card into the shop and show me i'd love to see it - if you have a blog leave me a comment with a link to your post and i'll pop over and have a look - I really would love to see what you do with yours
Lots of Love xx
