Wow, it's been a week full of blog hops for me, and now I can finish up with my Just Add Ink card.
This week Di has challenged us to use a Fancy Fold in our creations. I have been eyeing off these TeePee cards for yonks (a very long time for the non-Aussies!), so this was a great excuse to have a go. They are so easy!!! I really don't know why I didn't try one sooner.
I have two great nephews who are turning one in the next couple of months so I decided to use this challenge to make a card for the first of the boys.
I really love this elephant stamp from Zoo Babies - in the bright Pacific Point it's a great option for those 'nearly a toddler' cards.
There's not a huge amount of space for writing on the card unless you use the inside, so the smaller sentiment from Endless Birthday Wishes was great.
Here's the card opened flat so you can see how it's put together. I used 3 squares of cardstock cut to 4 1/8 inches and scored diagonally through the middle. The DSP is cut to 4 inches square and then cut on the diagonal, just slightly in from the middle on each side so you end up with a tiny strip that you toss out. I cut the Whisper White cardstock the same way and then just rimmed off the bottom corner so it doesn't show when the card is closed.
To post you just open it flat and then fold it down the middle. Easy!
The Design Team have done a fantastic job with this challenge. You can see their Fancy Folds over on the Just Add Ink blog. I hope to see yours there too!
Bye for now,
