Hand Stamped Sentiments #78- Fancy Folds

I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to join the Design Team at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I have played along many times there and when I met Erin and Shannon at convention they asked me to join them! Wow! So, of course, I said yes and this is my first week! I hope you will join me.

This week's challenge is to create a card with a Fancy Fold:


If you google "Fancy Fold Card", you will find LOTS of different ways to do a card in a "fancy" way. So, this is what I did because I wanted to find something I had never tried. I ended up at Splitcoast Stampers and used this tutorial, called the Center Step Card.

Supplies: Up, Up and Away
Ink and papers: Pool Party, Pool Party DSP, Real Red, Whisper White, Whisper White Craft ink
Other: Score Tool, Cherry Cobbler Twine, Scallop Circle Punch, Stampin Dimensionals, White embossing powder, Heat Gun, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

So, give it a spin! Try a fancy fold card for your self and then make sure to link it at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

Hopefully, I will be back on line by Thursday and won't have to keep going to Starbucks every day to blog! :-) Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a B-EAUTIFUL card!!! Everyday I see that set used I hear those voices that won't shut up! I think I need ear plugs, seriously! I have GOT to try this card, it looks SO COOL and like such fun- I hope it's not hard... I give up SUPER easy. It's a good thing finding a hubby wasn't that hard, I would still be single. ;-)

  2. Hi Erica! Welcome to the team! So excited to be working with you. :) You and I were channeling the same folding mojo this week. Lol! Love your card! Sheesh, I always love your cards. The colors look fantabulous together and the baker's twine is a great accent. Hope things go smoothly with the internet set-up! :)
