We're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Our new theme is 'Fancy Folds' which is a real favorite of mine. To get the complete details on the challenge and how you can play along, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
Check out the fabulous cards/projects that my DT teammates have created for your inspirations. Both Team A and B are here today. Normally Team B would post next Tuesday, but we're having our Winter Blog Hop next week...woo-hoo, fun time! Be sure to come back next week!
I found a card style that I haven't used before--it's called a Lever Card. I found the tutorial at Splitcoaststamper done by Laura Lipe--you can view it HERE. I liked the multi-fold feature of the card so I just have to make one. Laura's card size is 4¼" x 5½". So yup, you guessed it, I adjusted it to my preferred card size of 6" x 6".
The centre panel is a 'lever' that fits into the front window--thus the name.
I didn't put any embellishment inside the card because I didn't want to cover up the gorgeous designs of the papers. Someone sent them to me--I forgot who--and I don't know who makes them as I couldn't find the manufacturer's name on the papers.

The stamps for these images 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.
Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios and Candibeans.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey just to name a few. Have a look!
