Today, I want to share with you the Collar Fold Technique.

I had never tried this technique when the Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share this type of card.

Since I didn’t have a clue how to do it, I do what I always do when I need creative inspiration…

I searched Pinterest for “Collar Fold” and lickity split, up popped tons of inspiration and instructional videos!

I love the fact that this technique is…

  1. Super Easy
  2. Can be used for any occasion
  3. a Great way to use Designer Series Paper

So…

Let’s see what the STARS have created!

 

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the sentiment and font, I love the combination of cursive and type
  • Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, which will be retiring soon
  • the Collar Fold allows you to enjoy both sides of this beautiful paper
