More Than One Fold

JustRite Friday Challenge #080 - More Than One Fold    This  week the challenge at JustRite is to create a card with more than one fold.  


1. The first step was to cut paper from Reminisce "Autumn Plaid" into a 6 x 12 along with a piece of card stock.   The next step was to attach the paper to each side of the card stock so I had the front and back of the DP visible.  I then scored the paper every 3 inches to create four flaps.  On the left side I started about 2 inchs and began a free hand cut to the third score line at 6 inchs to create my card.  The top edges were distressed with Vintage Photo. The card when folded is 3 x6.

 2.  Next was to stamp the JustRite "Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves" on Solar White and distressed them with : Vintage Photo, Rusty Hing, Peeled Paint, Tea Dye and Wild Honey to try and create a fall leaf color.  The leaves from the stamp set were cut by hand.

3.  The ribbon which comes to the front through a slit in the fold was colored with Wild Honey stain  and a Doodlebug charm was added over a tag from Memory Box which was stamped with a sentiment from the JustRite set and distressed with Vintage Photo.  

 4.  The inside again has the leaves from the  JustRite set.  Spellbinder circles were used to cut the sentiment.  A Kraft paper was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. This was mounted on a circle that was embossed with a Sizzix 'Distress Stripes ' folder.  Both circles were cut to help form the edge of the card.

5.  The back of the card has  a Spellbinder labels 18 tag and was stamped with Dear Friend from the JustRite set. This was distressed with Vintage Photo.   A small leaf was added as a finishing touch
