Welcome to my blog! I had started a new blog to encompass my husband's and my journeys, but did not like the platform we were using, so I have reactivated this blog. I am currently pursuing my Master's of Education, so I will not be posting much, but will display the few crafts I have been able to complete. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you find something to inspire you!

Front Fold Card

I promised another front fold card and I also said I would not color in the different levels of the folds, but I was not able to stand by that statement.  I just have trouble with white space when there are so many patterns in stamps and paper to use, but I did keep one level white and you do not know how hard that was (lol).  The links are here and here to tutorials on making this front fold card.  The top level of the card is stamped with the CTMH Garden Tapestry background stamp in CTMH orange.  I do not know why, but I am just loving orange right now.  Orange cs cut using a Martha Stewart border punch decorates the top of the card.  The bottom fold is sponged with orange and each fold is also sponged in orange to define the fold.  I love this stamp set CTMH Punkin' Patch with its sentiment and cute teddy bear.  Teddy is colored with watercolor pencils and outlined in gel pens.  The inside of the card is lined with orange cs and the sentiment is stamped in orange and corners punched with the coordinating Martha Stewart corner punch.

This card is enterend in the following challenges:
