Sending Bear Hugs!


Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. My card today is another of the zigzag cards that I originally found over on Sakkalo’s blog, these are so much fun! Today I am using a stamp from Stampavie ... isn't she a cutie!

Since I shared my first card on Friday using this design, I have had a number of people ask for instructions in English because Sakkalo’s blog is in Swedish. I have drawn up a template of this and will add it to the end of my post for you.


Here is a side view of my card so you can see the different layers of it .... I had so much fun creating this


And the inside of my card, I just folded all my folds the opposite way so I could take a photo so you could see.

Sakkalo's Zigzag Card Instructions

As requested and promised here are the instructions so you can create one of these cards. Now being that I live in Australia and we work in the metric system I have used metric measurements on my template. However I have added the imperial measurements in the instructions for those that need it. Hope that helps and look forward to seeing your creations.

Stamps: Teddy and Me – Stampavie
Paper: White; Purple; Lavender; DP
Other: Black Ink; Border Punch; Grosgrain Ribbon; Button; Flower Punch; Brads; Oval Nestabilities; Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; scorpal; Foam Tape; Copics;

Hello Frances
I really like your card - and the other things you have posted on your blog. I've had fun looking around, you're very talented. :)
I'm honored that you both found my blog and templates, and that you have used it for your work. Furthermore - thanks for referring to me and giving me credit.
The world if cardmaking isn't very big when we all can connect through our blogs!

Have a great day!
