Well, it's challenge time over at Happileigh Scrappin'. Yay!!! =D This week Leigh came up with a great challenge: Special Folds. That means we want to see anything except the traditional one-fold card. Otherwise, it's wide open. It could be a gate-fold, a tri-fold, an easel card....or not a card at all. What about a matchbox or a carton? The possibilities are endless!
I decided to try a new fold called a Spring Card. I found the tutorial over at Split Coast Stampers.
I love this card because it folds flat, but when you pull it out of the envelope it pops up. How fun, right? I used Leigh's Happy Everything Vase, which can be found here in the floral section of her store. I also used some flowers from her Tea Party set. The flowers were all colored using Spica Markers, Glaze and Souffle pens. Paper is from Prima's Sasha Collection. Papers and card folds edged with pink chalk ink. The flowers on the bottom corners were made using a Cuttlebug Quilled Rose/Carnation Kit. I was really excited how they turned out...here's a close up.
It took a couple of tries for me to figure out how the kit works, but I'm happy with the results. =D I added a yellow gem to the center of the flower, and some stickles to all leaves.
Well, that's it for my creation! Head on over to the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the Happi Sisters came up with...you won't be sorry! Remember, you do not need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to enter the challenge, but if you do your entry will be counted twice! If you don't have any Happileigh Scrappin' images you can find some freebies here, or you can head to the store here. Leigh's still having a spring sale...buy three, get one free.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm also entering this into the Fab 'n' Funky Make Your Own Blooms challenge.
