Desk on Location and a new folded card

My What's on Tap Tuesday has a twist this week: it's on location.

During my visits to my parents over the past few years, I've amassed a tiny stash of scrapping products under a guest room bed for the times when we're just hanging out and I feel the need to satisfy my creative urges. Yesterday, I pulled out the three small bins and decided to make a simple card that I saw demonstrated on the Kaisercraft blog yesterday. Here's the LINK but the measurements are in centimeters. So to convert to inches, I used a 9" x 9" square as my base. Once folded, it fits in a legal-sized envelope. Just like the demo, I chose a sturdy double-sided card stock with a pretty collage print. The sentiment was already on the paper so all I had to do was stamp a cute little bird, color him and pop him up on the card, then add the trimmed kite from the piece of card stock I removed. This is called a concertina fold and I love the ease of it. It has to be the simplest folded card I've ever made. I hope it inspires you to make one, too.

I love that you have a stash at your parents house! My husband teases me because I never travel without a "bag" of supplies "just in case"! I crafted on and off in the car to Florida last year and I plan to do the same when we go in 2weeks! Your card is so pretty, I love the sentiment!

I wish I was organized enough to pack a travel kit like that. I always want to take EVERYTHING. ;/

I like this folded card - might try one today!

PS: Sorry I haven't played lately, but my timing's been off. ;/

Glad you could take a few supplies with you on location. And that card looks great - I might have to try that.
