More Than One Fold -Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge #53 -DT Card!!


Happy Friday all! 
I don't know about you but I'm so glad for my weekend to start! Specially since it's suppose to be bright, sunny and warm all weekend long here in Oregon...no rain...yay!

And now it's time for a new challenge at "Fairy Fun Fridays"! Can you guess from my title what this weeks theme is? You guessed it! We have an exciting theme this week and a very challenging one at that...we would like to see all those creations with more than one fold!

Here's a little inspiration to get you started...


The stunningly beautiful image I used this week is called Tea Time and can be found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop HERE! I had so much fun coloring in this beautifully drawn image of Robertas!

I continued with asian themed papers and embellishments throughout the card....including an awesome medallion charm that has some Chinese characters on it! I've had it laying around in my charm box for awhile...not sure what they say, but I thought it looked very cool...lol! I also made some pearl stick pins with some lovely Tibet bead caps...creating these pins is becoming very addicting and they make for such beautiful embellishments to dress up your flowers! The flowers of course including the pearl sprays, vintage seam binding and gem tree is from "WOC" (Wild Orchard Crafts)!


I'm loving this gorgeous gold foil textured paper from ProvoCraft! It came in a large mixed pack filled with differently designed scrap pieces so I just had to use some of it on the inside too!

And here are some close-ups showing my double folds, which I decided to do a little differently than traditional double fold cards with vertical opening flaps. I also added some pockets on the inside of each flap with a personal message panel in the middle.


CARD INGREDIENTS:

SIZE: 5 1/2 x 6
STAMPS: Prairie Fairy Designs digi stamp -"Tea Time
COLORING MEDIUM: PrismaColor colored pencils and OMS
INKS: Tim Holtz Distress ink
LAYOUT: Sweet Sketch Wednesday -"Sketch #102"
PAPERS: DCWV, Prima and ProvoCraft
EMBELLISHMENTS: Flowers, pearl sprays, vintage seam binding and gem tree from "WOC", hemp cord, "Lush" pearl brads, other brads, Tibet medallion charm and my own designed stick pins embellishments
TOOLS: Spellbinders Dies, Cuttlebug Machine, Martha Stewart Score Board and Sewing machine
