Happy Saturday Peeps,
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge.
This week our hostess is the fabulous Tui Nathan from Stampin-Time. Her challenge for us is:
Create a card that uses a Fancy Fold.
There are so many different types of folds out there, a lot of which I have seen, loved and even saved to do on a rainy day … but, never got around to doing!
I decided to make a Center Step Card using the tutorial Splitcoaststampers. I think this qualifies as a fancy fold don't you? It has some folds and some cutting involved but the tutorial makes it really easy.
I knew I wanted to use the Stampin Up "A Beautiful Season" stamp set for my main image. The base of this card is large, it is 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 square and I used chocolate chip card stock.
The DSP I used is from the "Letters to Santa" paper pack from Stampin Up.
The main image is stamped with black stazon onto white card stock. I colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I added the sentiment with Early Espresso ink, the sentiment is from the Bells & Boughs stamp set.
I thought the sides need a little something so I cut a couple of snowflakes from the Northern Frost die strip and added one on each side with a pearl to the middle.
I added some old olive grosgrain ribbon across the bottom and tied a bow. I tucked a punch edge under the ribbon made with the lace edge border punch and white card stock. Finished it off with two basic pearls in the upper corner of the main panel.
Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge. I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!
Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
