VCMP #3- Funky Fold

When I saw Sandy's funky fold tutorial this morning, I just knew it would be one of the challenges we'd face tonight for the VCMP.  

The directions were fairly straightforward, but that didn't stop me from making three mistakes on this card.  1) I cut the strips 1 inch in from the edge instead of 3/4 inch 2) I scored all the way across at 5.5 inches and 3) I scored all the way across at 1 inch.  Despite these three mistakes, the card came out alright.





The glittered paper I used is from Fiskars and is very, very well sealed, so it's safe for our heroes because it won't flake off on them!  I also used polka dotted paper from K&Co Girl Scouts stack and the Best of K&Co stack.  The ribbon is by Offray.  Stamp by Studio G, label punch by EK Success, modified by me.  Because this card has a smaller writing space than normal (the front panel would be hard to write on), I'm going to line the card with a piece of paper folded into fourths and trimmed to size so the hero can open it up and write a longer note if desired. 

If you need some cardmaking inspiration, check out the challenges posted each night at 5 and 8 EST all this week on the Stars and Stamps blog!

  4. I'm glad you explained about the glitter paper. I almost had a heart attack at first. Your card came out great even with all your missteps. Good idea about the extra folded paper.

  6. Your card is dazzling! The paper and your flower are terrific. Well done! I had trouble following the video directions too, and I finally made myself a diagram.
