This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Shape or Fold(& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I don't often make cards that are unusual shapes or folds so it made a change to try something different for this challenge. This 'z' fold which Elaine also used is so easy and does have a bit of a wow factor! 

This Go Kreate die may be one of my oldest but it's also still my favourite shape for creating cardbases.  I love the fancy corners and also that it perfectly fits my usual 6" square cardbase.

I had such fun making this "twist and pop" card, so I guess I'll go with it as my current favorite card fold.  I love that it pops with a surprise inside.


I love making fancy fold cards. I think they make an ordinary greeting a bit more special.

What can I say?  I love a shaped card but I really love a crazy fold - the crazier the better! 

I love making circle cards, somehow these cards look extra cute. I love my Crealies dies to create them, because they have large dies in their sets and you can make a normal size card. I really love the look of a scalloped circle, so that is what I made today.

I do make some shaped/ fancy fold cards, but I'm most comfortable with a 6" square card... so this Grand Nestabilities die set (Labels 4) is really handy and I use it a lot when I want something a bit more interesting than a plain square.

I love making this Go Kreate shape. I  think it makes a  card look extra special with its lovely curves and isn't too fussy.

My current favourite card shape is the tent fold, landscape or portrait. 

A very simple variation on the square base and these dies made it so easy

I love to create fun fold cards for special people or special occassions.
This one is my favorite one. It´s so versatile and not to hard to make.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
