Hello, I'd like to share my first folded card with you today. I've never gone away from the traditional before so this was really fun for me! I was challenged by Sentimetal Sundays to make a card with folds in it. This is what I've come up with.
Stretch N' Bubbles with coloured pencils and baby oil. Then matted her on two colours of cardstock. I used some lovely papers from ATD, fun ribbon from Multicraft Imports, and three glittered flowers from Forever in Time's Floral Embellishments. I cut the card out so that the fold opens to the side instead of the middle so it would showcase the lovely ribbon tie on the inside of the one fold. For the sentiment ( From TLC), I decided to make it the focal point of the inside instead of leaving room to write. I glued the sentiment on some pink cardstock, inked the edges a bit with my pink Color Box ink pad, then distressed the cardstock edges. I left the whole left inside space for personal notes. Once everything was in place on the card, I attatched my "Dorthy" to the card with some Fiskars pop up glue dots so she fit nicely over the ribbon.
( Someone asked me how I distressed and to tell you the truth it's so easy. A wonderful crafty designer I know showed me how to just scratch the edge of the paper with my finger nail. Well, I started to get a cramp right away - yes pathetic I know- so I reached for the first straight edge I could find. My scissors- so I just scrap away at the edge of the paper with my scissors until I like the look of it. )
