More than 2 Folds

Hello and thanks for visiting.

 

A quick post about our new challenge at Come and Get It and this week Judy has chosen:

 

Cards with 2 or more Folds

 

So I finally decided to have a go at a Side Stepped card.

 

I have used some lovely paper I recently purchased at a local craft shop and layered some butterflies from my favourite die/embossing folder – Beautiful Wings.

 

The card stock used is Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Naturals Ivory.  I have sponged around the edges of all the natural ivory cardstock with Crumb Cake ink.

 

I have used some new dies too – one is a Wild Rose Studio Die called Wild Rose and the other is a Nestabilities die called Decorative Labels Eight.  I decided the paper was so lovely that all I wanted to add was a sentiment. 

 

The Sentiment is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set.

 

Here is my card:

Here is a close up of the sentiment, which reads
“Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be Wonderful”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

You seriously found the most perfect paper for this project. I absolutely love the cascade of butterflies and how they are embellished. Thank you for joining ScrapbookerPhD for our die cut challenge.
