Challenge #72 at DS4J - fancy fold and handmade flowers


The challenge #72 this fortnight at DS4J is 'Fancy fold and handmade flowers"
Each month one of the  DS4J DT member will be sponsoring the challenge.
This month's challenge is given to you by Asmah
So just make a fancy fold on your paper project and use atleast one handmade flower. They can be  punched, folded, cut with scissors, or diecut. And link it up at  DS4J
I used this pretty image called A letter for you
The flowers are cut with spellbinder  and rolled (like quilling). The fancy fold I used was double accordion.





Image is colored with copics and I used E30 to antique it up a bit and to get the cream color.
The arch at the top is from a gate spellbinder die.
Since I used 2 pattern papers one for the inside fold and one for outside I had to make a dry run before assembling it. Since they just go in a slot it was easy to do.
You can see how to make this card in youtube. Christinia from card making magic has made a video. I so admire her work and as I love fancy folds I love googling and searching for ideas. There is a site called A-Z cards. You can google and check out that too. They haven't covered all the cards but they do have many you can have fun making.

Now for some fun challenges I am entering this card in

Great card Pam, this card looks very intricate. When I first saw this card a little scene came into my head that the little girl is posting a valentine card and the boy will come out of the door at the top, walk down through the garden (flowers) and collect the post and wonder how delivered it. Am I reading too much into this fab card?

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us at Crafting When We Can Challenges. :-) xx
