bendi fold card

Hi friends.  Yesterday was my monthly technique class, and one of the cards we made was a bendi fold.  There is a great bendi fold tutorial on, as well as a gallery, should you wish to make one of these. 

I used my picket fence on the edge die (Tim Holtz/Sizzix), but cut out pieces along the bottom, so I could create a taller fence.  Since the fence is intended to be a bit old and rickety, it wasn't necessary to be really precise with the cuts, so that was an easy change to the die cut. 

I kept the design somewhat simple, because of time limitations in a class.  But this is a card design that can be very clean and simple or extremely over the top.  My tendency is toward the simple end. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
