Abstract Impressions Bridge Fold Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! Well, I have to tell ya, we have been having quite the heat wave here in Nova Scotia. Up to 42' with the humidity. Ick. Fortunately, my office is downstairs, where it is very nice and cool. All my furkids are sprawled out at my feet - good thing they know where to hang out on a hot day! It also explains why I often find the backings of Stampin' Dimensionals and sprinkles of glitter on their fur....

Today's card tutorial features the Abstract Impressions stamp set with a fun fold - enjoy!
