For you, dear friend

** 1/15/17 Winner at Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog! **
** 2/1/17 Winner at Cards Galore Encore Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! How's the first week of the new year going? It's great here but we're not having very wintery weather... we've had our A/C on! I'm happy to say that I'm once again a guestie over at Scrapping4fun Challenges! Another one of my cards was chosen as a Featured Creation a few weeks ago, so here I am! I'm thrilled to share my inspiration Challenge #81 - Bright Colors! Oh, how I love bright colors and how I love fancy folds! I created my first-ever Dutch fold using the absolutely stunning Sherri Baldy 'Fluffy Frannie' digital image! What fun! I do need to apologize for the clear post in the bottom of the photo... I had to use it to hold the card closed because it was not cooperating standing up or lying down, lol!


This Sherri Baldy image is one of my favorites. So fun to color up with the bright hues! Isn't she just gorgeous?!


 I cut the image with a stitched circle die, layered it on a Cogs die cut and trimmed the right side even with the card base. The only embellishments are yellow sequins and a couple orange sprinkles.


Here are a few shots of this fun card opening up. First the top flips up...


Then the gatefold type panels open out to each side to expose the complete sentiment.


And here's one more shot showing just how flippin' cute this is! ;)


Happy to enter this fun Dutch fold card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Tangerine Tango and Pumpkin Pie cardstock, Stampin' Up! Brights DSP Stack

Scrappy hugs,
Leslie
