Fancy Folds blog Hop
Lever Card

Hello Friends 
 Are you ready for a Fancy Folds Blog Hop? This month it is all about "Lever Cards" well if you are like me you have no clue what is a "Lever Card" well I sure didn't cause I use to call this a flip card or a tunnel card. Well when I found out that this month was a lever card I had to look what it was all about and come to fund out I did many of them plus I did a live event just about them way back.  Well trust me they are much easier then they look. I have a NEW video for today using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits for the opening, you can view the video on my blog post today or my You Tube Channel PLUS I included some of the one I did in the past at the bottom and if you are interested to view the video of them just click on the picture of each one of them at the bottom. 
I will list all supplies for both of the Soft Sky card of today at the bottom but first here are the measurement

-Soft Sky 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼
-Whisper White 6½ x 5½ score at ½, 2½, 4½ *the 6½ is at the top when you score. 
All detail are in the video, you will see from the start to the finish. 
Thank YOU so much for stopping by.

  1. quelles cartes fantastiques ! quelle créativité, toutes ces variations à partir du même design... je suis admirative :) l'idée du nid avec l'oiseau est tout simplement adorable !

  2. Those are cool. I like the way the birds appear to be looking into it.

  3. Such an adorable card Frenchie - the bird and best are sweet! Thanks for your instructions and video xx

  4. Oh, you are just so clever my friend :-) love how you built a little nest for the birdie. Really love your card.

  5. Oh i love this idea. I tried it, converting the measurements to th European paper size, and it worked like a charm. I used the retired cups and kettle thinlet set. What measurements for the inside piece of cardstock would you recommend for a horizontal side folding card?
