Crimper Card Fun
This is a technique that I first saw on a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator's blog a few months ago. She even has a great tutorial! You can check it out at the link I will share below. I was further inspired to try one of these "crimper fold" cards when I saw a card done with the same technique featured on my very good Stampin' Up! friend Lyssa's blog a while back, I will include the link to her card below the link to the tutorial.
Anyway making this card is so easy and it definitely looks like more layers than it really is. Instead of doing a lot of stamping, I used a bit of "punch art" from the new SU owl punch and the sentiment is from a new set called Word Play. Just a little hint, it's much easier to stamp the greeting BEFORE you do the crimping even though it is possible to stamp the crimped paper as long as you press really hard.
Ingredients for this card:
2 step owl extra large punch #118074 $16.95
