Fancy Folds with Karen's Doodles
Welcome to Monday and another fabulous challenge from Karen's Doodles! This week we want to see fancy folds - you know, easel cards, joy-folds, tri-shutter - and probably a bunch more that I've never tried. Just as long as it's not a plain old standard card. We will have 3 winners again this week (chosen by Random.org), so print your favorite Karen's Doodle and get coloring! Have you seen all of the adorable Easter images Karen has been adding? You know you will want to color those!
My anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I decided to use the Wedding Dance to make a card for my husband. Of course, he walked in while I was finishing it up, so no surprises there. Don't you think this couple looks like they just danced off of the top of a wedding cake? I did. So, I designed a wedding cake and cut it with my cricut, and ran the "layers of cake" through different cuttlebug folders. I hand-sewed antique ribbon ruffles for icing, and sewed pearl colored seed beads into the icing as well.
I made a medallion at the bottom, with our initial "C", and used Justright stampers (Curlz monogram, and borders from the Preserves set, and Damask borders set). I stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed in gold. I also inked my edges with gold Smooch. You know I had to distress some of my edges and sew the card with gold thread.
Thanks for looking!
