Video - Foiled Fun Fold Cards with Brutus Monroe and Therm O Web!

In my newest video, I am sharing how to make this fabulous foiled pull up accordion card with foils and Designer Toner Sheets from a new collaboration by Brutus Monroe and Therm O Web. My favorite of the new Designer Toner Sheets in this awesome collection is the Marble and I made this fun fold card with those Designer Toner Sheets, (both clear and white) and the red Sunrise Brutus Monroe foil and another version with the blue Dry Brush foil:

The pull up accordion or lantern card folds flat to mail and then the recipient pulls on the cord to reveal 4 sides of birthday wishes and gorgeous foiled pieces. It is difficult to photograph when open, so I suggest you watch the video here to see many ways to use the new Brutus Monroe/Therm O Web products and a step by step tutorial on how to make this fabulous fun fold. Here are a few more pictures of the two cards from different angles: 

In the video, I may not have been clear about one of the steps to make this pull up accordion card. After scoring the 8 x 11 inch piece of cardstock at the 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 inch lines, turn the piece and cut into two inch strips. Those strips are folded accordion style with the first and last fold being mountain folds. 

I also used alphabet dies from Karen Burniston, stitched rounded square dies from My Favorite Things, birthday stamps from Suzanne Cannon for Elizabeth Crafts and balloon dies from Avery Elle to make my pull up accordion birthday cards.

I  am also announcing the winner of my huge anniversary prize package in this video, so if you left a comment, be sure to watch and see if you won.

What a dramatic card Karen - both the fold and the foiling.
