What is a Bendy Card?

At our local stamp club meeting last Saturday we learned how to make a fun fold "bendie" card. This was all new to me and I used a newly purchased Altenew stamp set to decorate it.

This card folds flat but when you stand it up is has bends out in front and back.  I'll show you how to make it. I used Altenew's Sophisticated Wreath clear stamp set but it's not available on at this time. I received all papers precut and ready as a make n take kit. 

You start with 4 each 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock pieces scored and folded in half lengthwise. You then adhere them together into an X shape. Be sure and burnish your folds good.

Then you cut 2 each of decorative paper 2" x 5 3/8" and adhere to opposite sides.

 Next you cut 2 each of decorative paper 4" x 5". Die cut a "window" out of each. Then score lengthwise at 1/4" on each long side.

Add adhesive to the 1/4" "tabs", lay your card flat and adhere to the center of the 2 remaining sides as shown.

 Cut 2 tabs 1" x 2 1/2", score 1/2" from each side and adhere as shown.

Cut 2 more labels the same shape as your windows but smaller, decorate, and adhere to the tabs. See my first 2 photos.

I hope you try this style of card.  It's pretty cool!
