Fun Fold with Video! Check out this fun card using the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from Stampin' Up!

I am so excited to start this new series of videos teaching you how to make quick and easy fun folds!!!  If you have followed me for awhile, you probably know that I don’t do anything hard….or messy…..or that takes very long!  I am a QUICK & EASY stamper!!!  However, that does not mean your cards have to be boring!  And one way to get a BIG WOW with your card is a simple FUN FOLD…..just do something a bit different!

For today’s FUN FOLD I created a video for you.  It not only shows how to do the “fun fold,” but also some great tips for stamping the flamingo and how to use the STAMP-A-MA-JIG!!!

Learn how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement of images.

Here is the video:
