Just Magnolias - folded up!

Hi - and Happy Friday - Before I get to my Card...

I have to have a LOUD shout out to my Sister... Happy Birthday Mel!! :0) I won't tell how old you are getting... (mainly cuz I am the older sister!)

Today is Just Magnolia's day, and what a fun challenge today- The challenge is to make a card with more than one fold! Any type of card, whatever you like, just that it has more than that normal one fold you have with a card.

For me, I decided this was a chance to use my Big Shot Pro!!! WHOO HOO! and the one and only Pro die I purchased...  (remember they are pricey so I will have to VERY slowly add to this collection) My die is the 6x6 envelope maker - I love the scalloped folds to this envelope, not just the plain square normal envelope. Now as soon as I saw this I thought.. this would make a great card as well. So that is what I did, I made the envelope be the actual card!

Here is my card all folded up - I used a satin ribbon as a tie... you will see it inside the card further down - but I wanted to make the card look like a present and a get a bit excitement in opening it up.

Getting excited... he he he  It is opening up!

I inked the edges of the four scallops - just so they would show and pop a bit more.

And then when open! I love how it sort of looks like a flower. My center is where my message and image are. You can sign and put a personal message on the "wings" I suppose. I used a piece of green card stock as the back mat, I sewed around the edge with a straight stitch. Then with a piece of white card stock I cut a 5x5 square and used a Martha Stewart border and corner set... love the doily look of this with the image... it matches her dress don't you think? This piece was sewed as well.  I also used last years Martha Stewart Ducks border punch - the part that punched out - love those little duckies! OH and you can see how the ribbon that is used for the tie on the outside runs below all of the papers and then out of slits on the sides. For my image I used one of the new Easter Tildas - love this little chickie in the spotted egg.

She has been colored with my Copics, and high lighted with a white gel pen. Then sewed on both pink and green card stock. For the sentiment I used one of the Micheal's dollar stamps - that I got on clearance last year for I think 25 cents! And sewed it down -

It was really a fast card to put together, and I love that it is a bit different from my "norm". A present like card.

Now hop on over to Just Magnolia's Challenge and see how many folds you can count in all the wonderful DT cards! And then fold on up and join us for a great prize!

See you tomorrow for Animal Crackers!

HUGS and-
