Fancy Folded Somethings

Happy Friday!

Hope everyone has had a great week and is looking forward to the weekend. We have a new challenge for you on STAMP SOMETHING. This week our design team member Becky is hosting the challenge and wants us to make something that uses a fancy fold. You can make anything you choose, but it has to be more than the typical folded in half card design. Try a new fold or make one up. Post your entry by 7pm EST next Thursday and you'll be entered into the blog candy drawing. Be sure to check out all the folded somethings the design team created too!

Here's my card, it's a holiday spring card. I've seen lots of these cards over the last few months and have been wanting to make one. This week's challenge was the perfect time to give it a try. There is a simple tutorial on Splitcoast, you can find it here.

To make my card, I used River Rock and Dashing designer prints paper, both are retired papers. I also used the retired stamp set Star Santa. I colored the santa image with watercolor pencils and an aquapainter, then added crystal effects and glitter to the fur on his coat. This is a pretty simple card, I wanted the image to say it all!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend. Hop on over to STAMP SOMETHING and fancy fold something with us today! Happy stamping and folding! :)

I love this fold, Denise. You and Becky must think alike?! I had to comment cause when I saw the set you used it gave me a warm fuzy. This was one of the first SU sets I bought way back when. It was the first time I made my own Christmas cards. Thanks for the memory. love how you did his fur trim!
