Fancy Folds for Christmas

Some time ago I went on a card making day - and made a card using this fold.  I had forgotten about it until I was sorting through some stuff at the weekend and came across it.  So, I decided I would make another card using the same fold but with my own take on it.

I took a photo of the reverse too:




I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Morgan's Art World - More than One Fold
http://morgansartworld.blogspot.co.nz/2016/09/challenge-19-more-than-one-fold.html
Creative Ladybirds - Anything Goes
http://creativeladybirdscreations.blogspot.co.nz/2016/09/challenge-19-morgans-artworld.html

I followed the instructions from the card kit we were given on the course.  The image is from Morgan's Art World and is coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.   On the course, we embellished with rhinestones but I decided to use some peelcraft stickers instead.  I actually prefer the look of the Peelcraft Stickers.  I added a gold satin bow and a star shaped Peelcraft sticker as well.  The sentiment on the reverse is from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.




Floral Delight

Fairly much a CAS card this time - so that it shows off the embossing.

Bookmarks


I used a sheet of four bookmarks - so did them double sided and in different colour schemes.  Actually now I wonder if I should always make my bookmarks double sided as they look so much better!

Things That Fly

It is the third Monday in September - so time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs.  This challenge the theme is Things That Fly and we are sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy.



I have used an image called Halloween Cat.


I also used a digital paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.  I added some white web ribbon that I inked black.  I also used some Halloween brads and a spider embellishment.  The matting is black cardstock and colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some splotches of black ink using Distress Ink Black Soot and my finger (probably should have used a dabber but it was more fun to get my fingers all inky).  I dabbed some off first so it wasn't too dark!
