Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 120

This time, the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is set by my team mate, Sharon, and she wants to see 'fancy folds'!

Our sponsor is Stamping Boutique.

See the challenge blog for details of the prize.

I used a lovely image from our sponsor called Audrey at the Well. I do like the Audrey character - she's so sweet!

I'm not a huge fan of fancy folds - several that I've tried over the years seem very impractical when it comes to putting the finished result into an envelope and posting it, so I went in search of something new. I spotted a tutorial for a Joy Fold card and liked what I saw, but the measurements given didn't work! So, once I'd worked out what I needed, I made one which will go into a standard six by six envelope, and here's the result.

and open
and again
I flat-coloured the image with Promarkers then added some shading with Spectrum Noir pencils. The papers are from the DoCrafts Tilly Daydream collection, and I created the sentiment in Photoshop Elements, mounting it onto s Spellbinders die cut.

So, not a terribly fancy fold, but the result is practical while still looking 'different', so I'm happy!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Doodle Pantry where anything goes,
Crafting at the Weekend where anything goes,
Crafty Calendar where anything goes,
Inkspirational where they want us to use pencils or markers (I used both Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pencils),
Suzy Bee's where anything goes,
Sister Act where anything goes,
Stempelsonne where anything goes.
