Momenta Shaped Wing-Fold Card with Scor-Pal

Today I will be sharing my project that was featured on the Scor-pal blog as part of this week's Scor-pal and Momenta blog week. Of course, if you missed this project or any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you'll want to hop on over there and see what's been going on this week. Be sure to leave comments on each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes. Entry deadline in 8am Monday, July 2, so there's still time.
I recently saw a tutorial for a very cool Shaped/ Folded card and have been waiting for just the right moment to try it out.  The tutorial that I used was from Marianne Skjelstad’s blog. She didn’t have a name for this fold, but I thought that a wing-fold shaped card was a good description. The Scor-pal Design Team got to play with products from Momenta this week – and I used the BFG Pyramid Pad.

First, cut your paper 6” x 11 ¾”. Using your Scor-pal, score at 3 ¼”, 5”, 6 ¾”, and 8 ½”.  Fold as shown.

Trace the shape that you want to use for your wing on the two outer panels of the card, and cut to shape.  For my card, I traced the outside of my Cheery Lynn Designs Oval Doily Stacker One die, so that it would be slightly larger than my die cut.  Ink the edges and add decorative die cuts, and patterned paper panels.

I used a smaller die from the same set for my front panel and decorated it with matching stickers from Momenta. This is the card folded into closed position.

Grow With Love

I wanted to play in the challenge at JustRite Friday Challenge - and this week it was a color challenge.  I really kept feeling stumped by these colors, and thought they just weren't "my" colors - until I got ready to post this card, and started laughing when I saw the card I posted right before this one, used almost the exact same colors! Kind of funny.

Blessed Beyond Measure

There is a small country church, not too far from where I live - and I've always thought it was so picturesque.  My sister and I took my nephew over there, and got some of my all time favorite photographs. I just think this picture is so sweet.

I love adding the stamens from the Build- A-Flower Set to all of my existing flower dies - it gives them a whole new look.

The Doily Stacker Circle also adds a whole new dimension to the center of the Mega Tea Party Doily.

There's a new challenge at the CLD Challenge blog - and this week we want to see Wedding/ Anniversary projects. We hope you will play along with us!
