SNSDC62 - Fun Folds

We have a fun challenge this week on the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog....Fun Folds.  If you are a frequent visitor to my blog, you know I love fancy/fun folds.  It can be any fold you like as long as it's not a standard "fold in half" type card.

When I was making my card for this challenge, we were in the middle of packing for last week's move.  So I kept it pretty simple and just did a gate-fold card.  They are one of the first fancy/fun fold cards I tried.  Here's a great Gate Fold tutorial from SCS.  My card folds to a 4.25" square.

Moving is always stressful and my husband had been working hard.  I wanted to give him a little note to let him know all his hard work was greatly appreciated.  This sentiment from the Love Sentiments set was perfect.  I tucked the sentiment panel behind one of the hearts from the All My Heart set to help keep the card closed.  Even though it's a masculine card, I thought this pearl flouish from Prima worked well.

Since my husband likes when I decorate the inside of my cards, I made sure to line the inside panels with patterned paper.

Cardstock:  Bazzill, DCWV, Recollections
Patterned Paper:  Echo Park (Times & Seasons)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Stamps (All My Heart, Love Sentiments)
Embellishments/Tools:  Prima Say It In Pearls, Stickles (Cinnamon), Spellbinders (Standard Circles Large & Small)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #147 - Follow the "plan" (at least 1 circle/oval, at least 2 papers, at least one embellishment) 
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - Must have text
Scrap Creations - Use something that you've gotten new within the last two months (mine is the pearl flourish)
Shopping Our Stash #59 - use an extra fold or pleat on your card -- for the stash part, I've had the paper, stamps & stickles for a looongg time)
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge (4CCC-98) - Stripes

I hope you'll play along with us this week in our fun fold challenge.  Remember, you don't have to use SNS images (though we love it when you do) but you do have to use a digi image.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm off to continue job-hunting.  ugh!
