'Fun' Fold

 Morning all.  Are you ready for a new Make My Monday Challenge.  This time we are looking for 'Fun Fold' cards.  I have to admit to finding fun folds difficult.  I love the stuff that Debbie makes over at Secrets to Stamping.  She's so good at this stuff. I really struggle however.  I have recently discovered Kendra Sands Morgan and I'm a total convert to her new Kendra's Card Challenge.  Whilst watching her You Tube channel I also discovered this Tri fold Shutter Card tutorial. I had some gorgeous oriental papers left over from doing her card challenge and decided to give this a go.

I'm so chuffed with it.  Yes, I've got a couple of false starts on my desk but once I'd got my mountain and valley folds in the right order it came together really well.  I do think I need a new paper trimmer though.  I'm not used to cutting mats for panels (I use a perfect layers tool normally) and it definitely showed up that it's not cutting square.  Oh well, that's another excuse to pop to the craft shop!

Thanks for reading.

  5. WOW!!!! What a great fancy fold card! I'm with you - I don't make enough of these to really get the hang of it but this design is a keeper! I would be chuffed with it, too! I really love the "Asian" influenced pattern paper and how you kept the color palette similar but popped it with that bit of gold! Really gorgeous!
