Iron Cross/Open Gate/Swinger Hybrid Invitation - 60-Second Fold of the Week
Get ready for another show-stopping event invitation from our friends at ADG Creative. You may remember their amazing circus-themed swirling invitation from episode #280 (worth revisiting). This year's invitation is also quite spectacular. The hybrid format combines an iron cross, an open gate fold and a swinger into a gorgeous invitation that holds a metal ampersand and diecut inserts. There's a great story, a social media campaign and much more to see. It's a can't-miss episode. Enjoy!
