Today is Wednesday, Stampotique Designer's Challenge day, yay!!!!! Today it is all about folds:
'Welcome back to our Wednesday challenge here at Stampotique. We are thrilled that you are joining us again this week at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and we have a fun challenge for you.
Today we want to see you try your hand at some fabulous folds. Use more than one fold on your card, get all fancy on us and use multiple folds.'
So, this is way out of my comfort zone, my cards are usually just, well, normal cards. So I didn't have any fancy folding going on. I made a card with two folds and this is it:
I cut this card out of an A4 piece of light craft coloured cardstock. When folded close it is a normal sized card but there is a slight overlap on the bottom. I punched out the bottom of the top flap with a Martha Stewart punch. I then glued patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket) to the front and the inside. I made the closure by punching out two circles and attaching them to the card with brads. A also added a bit of bakers twine. The happy and birthday were stamped on the same paper as the card base was cut from. The two red flowers are Stampotique's Carol's flower (stamped on patterned paper from the same Cosmo Cricket pad) and the little smiling figure is called Smile (stamped on the same paper as the card was cut from) and is also from Stampotique. I paperpieced his shirt and shoes from patterned paper, again from the same pad from Cosmo Cricket.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you like it...
