A Folded Card For You......Prairy Fairy Design Blog and more

Hey there guys, it is my turn this week to show you a folded card on the

I made this card once a long time ago. ...and with the fabulous Digistamp from Roberta I thought I would make another one.....and this time one for a guy.....why not eh? I think this would be just great for a guy.....and my favourite, it's Vintagy....

So I started out with...

Picking the digistamp that I wanted to use.....and I colored these fabby Poppies with Spectrum Noirs and Distress Markers.....the borders were worked on with Distress ink.

The papers that I used are from the Prima Marketing, Botanical Collection.....I really love these papers and the fabulous colors they have. They really give such a Vintagy look.....I used an self cut Oval to work with, it is a bit bigger then the image and you can make it as small as you want to or bigger. 

Oke here we go, it is very simple....I took a piece of cardstock and folded it just like you do to make a card.  Since I am Dutch I will use the Dutch centimeters....so you fold a piece of cardstock from 15 x 15 cm 
The one side you fold again, just take half of it and fold the paper.

Then you get this......see

So what did I do? I first worked on the front of the card, used the papers for it and after I got the paper on top, I cut an Oval out in the middle (or where you want it to be) out of the Designpaper. 

So the back of the card looks like this....you fold the piece that you cut out just like a "normal" card back to the front. 

Then you get this......from the front.

So when you have decorated the two sides of the Folded Card you get something simular like this.
I am really pleased about it and had lots of fun coloring and decorating the card.
A few bows from a piece of  lace and a few pearls on top and my Folded Card is done.....

Hope you like what I was showing you and hope you will have lots of fun with this one.

  8. Schitterende kaart, Terry! Maar helaas niet geschikt voor de Art Journey challenge, want dan moet je hoofdzakelijk stempels van het merk Art Journey gebruiken.
