[Paperplay Challenge] Week No. 37 - Fancy Folds

Note: If you are looking for DYSU Challenge - please keep scrolling :)

Hi there! It's Week 37. Yikes. Are you planning christmas or winter cards yet? I'm not ready, because I haven't even warmed up to Halloween card! Why does the year just go so fast?!

If you need something to get you started, we have a fantastic and challenging challenge: Fancy Folds. This one scared the wits out of me, because I like my whole A5 cards. Why? It uses every bit of my card stock, and there is no waste. And that's how I like to roll...So here is what I came up with...

Blank Popup Card
Stamps: N/A
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Orange Zest) Papertrey Ink; (Gathering) Authentique
Ink: N/A
Embellishments: (3/8" Topnotch Twill - Dark Chocolate; Saddle Stitch - Hawaiian Shore) Papertrey Ink; (Gathering Collection: Two-sided Elements - Tabloid, Icons, Excerpts) Authentique

If you are wondering where the fancy fold is... you're right. It's not. But here is a nice up-close shot of the card. I love these beautiful postage embellishments...aren't they beautiful? And since I had a scrap ribbon laying around, I decided to use it up now... (or never). Ever save scraps and you forget to use them?

Ok, so I was kidding about not making a fancy fold card. I mean - I don't want to get fired from the team ;) So where is the fancy fold? In the inside of course...Peek-a-boo. It's a pop-up...!
