Gardener Pattiboop

After a nice long holiday break, we are all ready to begin the new challenge (#35) from Pattie's Creations.  The new challenge is to make a card with Fancy Folds.  It can be anything from an easel card, side-step card, gate fold, etc.

I used Gardener Pattiboop from the store and sort of designed my own fold, loosely based on a Joy fold card.  Above is the card folded and below is the card open.  In order to create the right "fold" I used the Victorian Picket Fence die from Cheery Lynn Designs and adhered it to the back patterned paper panel (before adhering that to the base). On the inside left panel, I stamped my message "How are Things Growing".

The image is colored with Copic markers and cut out with the Large Label (#5) Spellbinders die.

Now it's your turn to show us your fancy folds.  I'm excited to see what you come up with.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team came up with - you won't be disappointed.  The challenge rules are posted on Pattie's Creations Design Challenge blog and you'll have two weeks to upload your project.  So get busy and have have fun trying something you may not do all the time.

I'm also entering this fancy fold card in iCopic's (the blues) challenge.
