Fabulous Folds at D2D


Do you like to do different folds for a little variety in your card making, then you may just want to check out the challenge this week at Card Ideas . One of my favorites is the easel card but while looking through an old copy of PaperCrafts' Card Creations I came across a fold done by Melissa Phillips. Her measurements were a little wider than a standard A2 card so I just adjusted my measurements down so that it would fit in an A2 envelope. I bought some paper by Memory Box entitled Minuet this weekend in Mooresville, NC at Stamper's Alley which I think is just gorgeous. My image by Faith at Designed 2 Delight called Beautiful Blessing was super easy to color and I love the blues and greens.
Here is a picture of the card open so that you can see the inside. I stamped a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt on another piece of the dp for the center piece.




I punched out my flowers pieces with Stampin' Up punches and then used SU's build a brad to make my center. Hope you like this and here's wishing you a happy day!
