I absolutely love these Lifestyle Craft nested oval dies. If I were only allowed 10 crafting items on a desert island this would be one of them. So imagine just how excited I was when I finally figured out how to make a folded card from one die. REALLY EXCITED!!!! When I learn a new technique, and have all my equipment out to make it I usually make multiples of the card in different colors to reinforce the process. It just so happens that when I was making this
card I needed to write a thank you note to my sister, and a thinking of you card to a very dear friend. By the way to achieve this look all you have to do is fold a piece of card stock in half. Take the die you want to use and hang one of the edges of the die over the folded edge so when you run it through you die cutting machine it doesn't cut that part of the paper making the hinge. Beth Beard does an amazing job explaining the technique in this video.
