Remember the buckle card technique? It's easy to recreate with one simple product

Do you remember the buckle card fun fold? It was super popular a few years ago thanks to the Word Window punch. But when that punch retired, it was nearly impossible to create a buckle card. Well, not anymore! I am going to show you how to recreate the buckle card fun fold using the Sending dies and the Hues of Happiness product suite. 

Hues of Happiness Suite

The entire Hues of Happiness suite bundle was on my Annual Catalog pre-order because I love how everything coordinates beautifully. There are 15 stamps in the set (loving that font!), and 11 dies in the pack. And the paper - wow! I love the bright colors and patterns and am having so much fun using this paper as layers on my cards.

To create the buckle for my card, I used the Sending dies, which are part of the Sending Smiles bundle:

The Sending Dies are perfect for any occasion. This die pack includes a large text die and shadow die of the word “Sending”, AND includes two different sized label dies.We are going to use one of them for today's fun fold.

Here's what I am going to show you how to create. Watch the video below for step-by-step details and for my bonus tips and design ideas.
