A New Fold

Welcome back! Today was a very strange day. It seemed that everything I did something went wrong. I tried doing this card and disaster struck several times. It was an interesting process to say the least.

This is a Quatro Fold card. I'd never done one before. I found the tutorial for this Quatro Fold card at Beccy's Place. It's great fun once you get the hang of it. The first time I cut the card stock on the wrong dimension. Once I really read the directions carefully and redid the cuts, then I realized I made my image and sentiment too large. Had to reprint those and recolor. But all in all I love the results. And such a fun fold to try. The image is from Beccy's Place from the Snowmen Digital stamp set. I colored him with Art Minds markers. They have a very fine tip. The sentiment is from the same set. The snowflakes are die cuts from Paper Smooches. I used Diamond Stickles on the snowflakes and the top of the snowman's hat. Also, I outlined the word snow in the Stickles. Almost forgot to show you the inside of the card. I haven't added Stickles to the inside but I will go back and do that because it really adds a pop to the snowflakes.

Beccy's challenge this time was a tic tac toe board.

I am entering these challenges:
I did manage to finish one more card today and believe it or not it wasn't Christmas. LOL! I'll try to get it posted this evening. Take care!

Donna, that is a gorgeous card. There are some days that are just like that. At least I think....it could always be worse.

I think we can all relate to your day Donna, sometimes everything seems to go pear-shaped! I'm glad you persevered though because your card turned out beautifully. I really like blue Christmas cards, especially when they feature snow and snowmen. Great job!
