Good morning everyone,
Happy Friday to you, I wish you all a lovely crafty weekend.
This morning we have a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy. The lovely Annie is hosting this challenge.
Annie has chosen Different Folds/Shaped Cards for her theme.
It doesn't have to be complicated just slightly different from what you would normally make. There are so many ideas out there.... easel cards, gatefold cards, stepper cards, fold back front cards etc.
Well that put me slightly out of my comfort zone as you know me I nearly always make easel cards. I chose to make an accordion card which you would think is pretty easy, it certainly didn't go smoothly, but I got there in the end.
I coloured up two of my new Maggies from the Aspen Holiday collection, they are Poinsettia Tilda and Holly Wreath Tilda. I have coloured them with DI reinkers.
As you have probably noticed I can't make a card without embellishments so I added a few flowers, lace and jingle bells and a bit of pearl trim to make a border on every other panel.
On the inside panels I have embossed a Christmas text stamp in gold embossing powder and added some pearl trim around the edges.
The third panel features Holly Wreath Tilda and on the back which silly me forgot to photograph is where I have mounted some plain ivory card, stamp embossed some holly leaves and where you can write your sentiment.
