I very excited as today I am hosting my 1st challenge as the March guest designer at Shannon's Sentiments and boy do I have a fun one for you! I typically just make either regular A4 size or 6 x6 cards, however I am always intrigued by the many fancy folded cards I see. So this week I challenge you to incorporate an unusual fold on our card. Yes that's right I want you to step out the your comfort zone and try something new - make a project using a fold that is new to you or that you rarely ever use.
Last weekend I was at a scrappin' retreat with my fave local gals and we did a card swap. My friend Darla came up with this pretty card and when I asked where she got directions she indicated she got them out of a book somewhere. Well I LOVED the final result so I grabbed my ruler and measured everything out to be able to re-create the card for this challenge.
For my card I grabbed this CTMH paper pack called along with my coordinating inks and cardstock in Juniper, Creme Brulee, and Sorbet. I inked all my papers using the ink that matched cardstock. My base is 4 1/2 x 11 and is scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2, my layers are cut as follows:
Creme Brulee (yellow/orange) layer- 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 for left/inside panel and 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 for larger panel.
Sorbet (peachy color) layer- 2 1/4 x 4 for left/inside layer and 4 x 5 for larger panel.
Patterned paper- 2 x 3 3/4 for left panel only and 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 for larger panel.
