Flap Fold Card
This is the card I mentioned yesterday. It is from Technique Junkies Newsletter (see link to right) and I think it is one of my all time favorite cards to make. It's just cool. Of course one of the reasons I like it so much is that I can use my favorite scrapbook papers and they are displayed in such a way that you actually get to see them and see a stamped image. A lot of times they are hiding behind the image. This is a get well card for a gal in one of my yahoo groups who had surgery this week. Just a RAK type thing. I used Basic Grey Phoebe Collection -Chinatown piece. I also had some ribbon I got as a freebie in something I purchased and it goes perfect with this! I love that ribbon and can't find out where to get it. It is striped with iridescent stripes that are so pretty. I also used my new set of Nestabilities, I knew I was going to love these! The outside and inside scallop circle and then the inside circle are made with them. Works great in my Cuttlebug and I didn't have to buy anything special to use them. I stamped the butterfly on white cardstock and then used the watercolor crayons and a waterbrush to color them. I then used Stickles which is where the cat laid and messed them up. I tried to fix it. They are kind of spread out weird but it's not bad. The other pictures are of the opening the first flap and the the second flap which is all the way open. A very Spring-like card for Winter but it actually fits out strange 70 degree weather!
