Yappy Happy Trifold Card – Heffy Doodle Hop


I want to wish a Yappy Happy 1st Birthday to everyone at Heffy Doodle! Can you believe it’s been a year!? I’m always proud of companies celebrating the milestones – it’s really hard to stay in business nowadays, and if they can withstand the pressures, they deserve the kudos! Be sure to scroll down to read how to join in the hop and qualify for awesome prizes!!

Yappy Happy Trifold Card

When asked if I’d participate, I saw this cute puppy stamp set – oh my! Dogs AND mail? Yeah bring it on! The dog in the middle panel “needed” to leap in the air, and I decided my card would be going “From” a US postal mailbox all the way across the pond – so it’ll be my sister’s birthday card when it comes round! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The trifold card format was fun for something with a little change. I love the little pup trying to open the box at the end – lol. That’s my G – our box from Chewy just arrived and he probably would have opened it himself if I’d let him. LOL!

To make the card base, I used two strips of 4-1/4″ cardstock – each had two square panels, and they overlap in that middle panel. If you have 12×12 cardstock you could do this more easily, just make the panels 4″ instead, but since I can’t remember the last time I had any 12×12, I made do with what I have on my cardstock shelf.

Hex Charts!

In case you’ve missed it….there are now four hex charts available! Copic has been around a while but now there are 3 brands of colored pencil. (Note that there won’t be watercolor or watercolor pencil charts – we can’t run watercolor paper through our home printers or use waterproof ink.) All charts are HERE.

And on Friday, the Colored Pencil Jumpstart Class content will be available! You can sign up for class now or then and I’ll remind you here on the blog on Friday to pop over this weekend to start learning. (You can join in class ANYtime, there’s nothing live that you need to be there for.) Note that I’ve added some things to the PreClass (click on Curriculum) – like the discount for stamps, and info on hex charts. 🙂
