Fun With Folds


Good morning and a warm welcome to you! Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I have made for this week's Our Creative Corner challenge. This week, our lovely hostess, Lori Rider, has challenged us to have Fun With Folds - make a card that has some sort of non-traditional fold associated with it. It can be in the card itself, such as the gatefold card that I have made, or your embellishment can be made with special folds. I took a quick peek at the DT samples and it looks like we all used a different sort of fold so there will be lots of inspiration over there this week. I used the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers to make this card. It's the first one I have ever made and I wasn't quite sure of the dimensions. But it was very easy to make.


Products Used:
Paper: SU Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz CS, K&Co. DP
Stamps: SU Elements of Style, Sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs
Ink: Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint, and Vintage Photo Distress Inks
Acessories: Spellbinders Frameabilities Classic Frame die, Tim Holtz Scrollwork Die, Cuttlebg Moraccan Screen embossing Folder, Misted with solution of Vintage Photo Reinker, water and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovey comments. Have a great weekend!

Blessings & hugs,
Challenges Entered:
Project Tuesday - Gate Fold Cards
Frosted Designs - Quote Challenge
