Fancy Folds

Hope those of you who celebrate the Queen of England's birthday have enjoyed your long weekend.

The first card shown above is what is termed an Easel card (as in the stand an artist uses). I've used punch art and decorative paper to make this tree scene. The sky background isn't printed paper, I made it with sponging. Because the card features a large and small tree, I decided it would make a good Father's Day card for Ashley to give his father. Fancy me being organised so far in advance.

The next card is called a Tri-fold card. Here the ribbon unties and the card unfolds to reveal a graphic and/or message inside. Would have been nice if I remembered to take a photo of this feature but I didn't (sorry folks).

I've also used grey in this card. It's not an obvious colour choice but sometimes it works well. And as much as it hurt to cut up my carefully stamped image, it looked good when I pieced it back together again.

Last one is a Waterfall card. I have a set of four owl stamps which were perfect for this card. As you pull on the ribbon the card flips through the owl images.

Thanks for visiting.

Love from Crafty Kim
