Unique Fold

I was inspired again by Beate. If you don't make a daily stop by her blog-you should! Click here to see the specific post. I need a unique fold for my swap next month. I had seen this before, but Beate's sample pushed me to give it a shot!

Let me first warn you that these pictures are not the best! I added Stickles that weren't dry, so I couldn't scan. I had to improvise and use the camera! and the old camera at that!

I used the On Gossamer Wings set. The colors are Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery & Apricot Appeal.

I used more of the Palette O' Prints Designer Series Paper. The images are stamped on Very Vanilla and watercolored with reinkers. I added Stickles as I mentioned above, to the center of the flowers and just a touch on the butterfly.

The pictures below show how the card opens. First, the flower/Apricot layer opens to the right.



Then the Celery/Eggplant layer opens to the left.


The card base is 4-1/4 x 9, scored at 5-1/2 leaving you a traditional card size of 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. The inside piece started at 8 x 3, scored at 4. I trimed just a bit off the top near the stamped image. Clear as mud??? Let me know if you need more direction!

Now, here's to hoping this set is NOT on the retirement list tomorrow!
