Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 197- Fancy Folds

                             Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 197 - Fancy Folds

Time for another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers  and this fortnight the challenge is 'Fancy Folds'.  Hosting this challenge is Margaret. Please note: this particular challenge is for cards only.                                                                                                                                                                                              

I choose this ever so easy center fold . Cut out an eight x six inch piece of  cardstock, score vertically at 2, 3, 5 1/2  and 6 1/2 inches and fold accordingly. Cut out a 3 3/4 inch square. This is your card base, decorate as you like.  So very easy! I choose to add decorative paper  within a brown border., added a colour coordinated flower, some trailing vines and a sentiment cut from a die . I also added a decorative strip to the  two one inch stripes that make up the side of center folded part of the card. I adhered the square center piece  to the center fold with tape.

This will fold up to a  six by 4 1/2 inch  card.

Cardstock: Stampin Up 'Bermuda Bay', Early Expresso
Paper;( Discontined) Doodle Pantry
 Flower: stash
Dies: Jim Holtz  Thinlets  for the sentiment, Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson  - Petite Vinery,  Memory Box 'Grape Vine Border
