SDC Challenge 123 Mutiple folds

Hello fellow Crafters,

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...


  1. Well for someone who doesn't do cards like this, it's fab, simple fold but very effective and love how it ties up at the front - great job

  3. Schitterend gedaan!

  4. He is a wonderful stamp, so full of character. I like the way the cards closes.
    I must say that I don't do fancy folding either when cardmaking but certainly admire those that create multiple folds on their cards, always looks too complex for my tiny brain!

  5. Cute birthday card Corrie !! Love both stamps also :) Hugs Coco xx

  6. Oh My.... This is wonderful. He is perfect for this card. Thank you for sharing with us at Stampotique.

  7. Looks terrific, Corrie. I'll bet the recipient will enjoy this birthday card.

  8. A wonderful job on the fab folds challenge, Corrie! I haven't used Cosmo Cricket in a long while, and you have reminded me how much I like it. Smile looks great in his dapper outfit--your have inspired me to make some clothes for these images, as it can really change their look! Clever tie up, too! This is one I will "lift" and make on my own!

  9. Great use of smile and perfect for the card

  10. Just gorgeous Corrie. Thanks for joining us again at Stampotique this week.

  11. Oh I love this Corrie, the paper is so pretty and goes so well with Smile. I love how you've fastened the card too - perfect xx
