Crafty Cardmakers spotlight - fancy folds

 

It's time for a new spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight our spotlight is on 'fancy folds'... mine's not especially fancy, but I kept changing my mind what fold I should do, and eventually just had to get on and make one, so this is what I ended up with!  It's quite simple to make - just make two 5" square (or whatever size you want) cards and stick them together, so the middle section has 2 layers.  The full length pic isn't very good, so I've added a close up below too.

The super cute little penguin image is from Di's Digi Downloads, available here.  I've coloured him with promarkers and used koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador for the sky.  I added loads of glamour dust and also used glossy accents on the baubles to make them shine, but that doesn't show up very well in the pic.  The papers are Dovecraft, with bazzill cardstock, ribbon from my stash.  The snowflakes were cut with a cuttlebug die and then smothered in glamour dust and finished off with some card candy centres.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

  8. I absolutely love this - don't care if the folds are all singing and all dancing they are definitely really effective. I love the way the two outer parts lead the eye in to the cutest penguin ever. A great card.
