Fancy Folds February 12, 2011

Here is my entry for the Bugaboo’s latest challenge to do a different fold.  I am also entering it in DYSU’s ribbon Challenge #6, where you have to use ribbon in your project.

The image I used is from Bugaboo’s Stella line, and it is called One More Candle.  The idea for the card came from Stamp ARTic, and it uses the technique shown in the tutorial.  I actually used 8.5″x8.5″ double-sided cardstock from My Sentiments Exactly to make the folded portion of the card.  Then, I used Martha Stewart’s Swirling Lace Punch Around the Page for the border.  The top and bottom of the card has cardstock that was embossed with my Cuttlebug using the polka dot portion of the Welcome Baby combo pack.  I thought it echoed back well to the cardstock… and since I could not find any matching colored cardstock to use, I colored that portion as well as the frame around the image and the sentiment with a Copic marker, matching it as well as I could.  The white ribbon is from my stash.  I used the following Copics:  B000, BV11, BV17,  E00, E57, E59, N1, N3, RV21, RV25, and Y15.

I really like how this card turned out.  What I wasn’t crazy about was not having any room to write anything on the inside, so instead of a square card, or putting this on the inside of the card, I used it as the card front.  That way, I will still have room inside the card to write a birthday message and sign it.
