White cardstock - cut at 5" square I stenciled clouds onto the white 5" square piece, then attached it to the pink square, then onto the green card front. Then I stamped and fussy cut my bunny and die cut all my pieces (plane, rainbow, clouds). To make the plane FLY over the rainbow....

TEE-rific Bridge Fold Spinner

Hello, I hope y'all had a great summer weekend!   I'm looking forward to the cooler crisp Fall season which makes it much nicer to spend more time outdoors like hiking with my dog, or... golfing!  I actually lettered in golf in High School, so my card today is a li'l tribute to my golfing days. ☺ The newest release is   BASEBALL & GOLF   themed and the individual dies are  30% off!   This is another fun fold card & it's interactive!!  I combined the bridge fold card and  a spinner !   Here's a short clip of the golf ball spinning ☺   (You can click  in the bottom right corner to make it larger!) All the dies I've used are pictured and linked at the end of my post. Design Steps: I cut my SU!

I guess you call this a Z-Fold card ... (I know, again with the Z-folds!, LOL) but this one is a li'l different.  I think the others I've made recently were actually called Double Z-Fold cards with that add
