It's Friday and it's time for a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. The lovely Yvonne is our hostess for this challenge and our theme is 'More Than One Fold'. We're being sponsored by Marianne Design. To get details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog. Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you.
I love the theme for this challenge--it's right up my alley! I've decided to make a pop-up book card.
Here's the front of the card...it's not where you find the 'more-than-one-fold' feature...
...it's inside the card!
I left a blank space on the left side of the 'book' for personal messages.
Since Marianne Design is sponsoring our challenge, I have used a few of their dies to create the floral-and-foliage arrangement.
- MD Creatables LR0117 Frame and Leaves (the orange flower petals are actually leaves)
- MD Creatables LR0133 Open Flower Classic (leaves)
- MD Creatables LR0151 Garden Branch (flourishes)
(The blue flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch.)
Here are close-ups of the Magnolia images being featured--this Tilda below is one of my very favorites.
- Sitting Tilda With Butterfly from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013
- Watercan from the Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009
- Tilda With UGG Shoes from the Australian Collection 2012
Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
If you're interested, the Pop-Up Book Card tutorial and template can be found in an earlier posting HERE.
