This is a repost of Sunday’s Blog Post that got lost in the changeover for web hosting …..

Well its been a bit too long since I last posted and when Miss Vicky asked me to be the Guest Designer for this week’s challenge over on the Sunny Challenges Blog I thought this was the perfect opportunity to jump back into Blogging!

Its always nice to know that people like what you make but when it comes from your peers it just is that little bit extra special and what an absolute thrill to be asked to be a Guest Designer – thank you so much 🙂

Here is the challenge …

So the Challenge is to make a card with a ‘Fancy Fold’ – not too hard is it?? But which fold to use??

I went with the Double Z Fold ….

If you remember last month we had the awesome Paper Party promotion – well I had two new girls join my team so that means not only do they get a free pack of Designer Series Paper for the rest of the year but so do I!!  So I chose the gorgeous Attic Boutique from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.  I love this piece I’ve used with the script and the oh so subtle flowers on it.  I also hand cut out a piece of the Soft Suede paper for behind the ribbon which you can see better in this photo ….

I’ve used the Labels Framelits for the layering for the flower and the flower comes from the gorgeous Reason to Smile stamp set.  This stamp set is just gorgeous and you can get it during June ONLY!  There are two ways to get it ….

  1. Purchase the stamp set for just $28.95 (Clear) or $35.95 (Wood)
  2. Get it for free with an order of $125.00 or more! (My favourite option!)

Here is the inside of the card ….

Now I did ever so softly stamp the flower image up the right side but its a bit hard to get a good photo of that.  I’ve also used the offcut of the Soft Suede piece of Designer Series Paper from the Attic Boutique Pack for the border along the bottom.

I do hope you like this card and should you wish to hold a Stampin Up! party with me then I will show you just how easy this card is to make! Also, if you host a Stampin’ Up! party during June or July you have the opportunity to earn an extra $90 in Hostess Dollars to spend – how sweet is that? Gotta love Stampin’ Up! and all their free stuff 🙂

Be sure you popover to the Sunny Challenges blog to see what the other girls have created and why not play along with us??  I’d also love to know what you think of my card so be sure to leave a comment!

thanks for stoppin by 🙂
