Wicked Folds Pals Blog Hop

Pals Blog Hop October 2018 Badge

Welcome to the Pals October, 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal. 

My holiday card today is a simple gate-fold style.  The sides are folded in and a belly band brings it all together like a pretty package.  I adore the “wood-cut” look of the deer!

  4. I love this card, Mary! I have this page of paper and this die on my table at home to make something combining them. Guess I’ll tuck those away when I get home. 🙂 Such a great project!

    Great gate fold, Mary! Love the belly band. It completes the card perfectly. I don’t do them enough so thanks for the inspiration. I think your card has made me think about purchasing that DSP as well. Very pretty!
